Hawaiian lomilomi massage is unique in all of the ways that Hawai’i is unique.  Lomilomi acknowledges and appreciates the influence of Hawaii’s natural environment on its healing practices. This training provides a foundation in lomilomi that is appropriate for use in a spa setting or within the family.

Malia introduces bodywork in the first lesson, so look forward to giving and receiving massage in every session! Each weekly session builds upon the last so that lessons and themes are intertwined.

Topics in the training include, but are not limited to, Hawaiian terminology for the course, opening and closing protocols, palpation, using the bones as guides, and body systems found in nature. To complement the lomilomi massage techniques, students also learn relevant components of oli (chanting), hula (dance), pule (prayer) and ‘olelo (language). Lei-making develops skills in the hands and fingers and illustrates the importance of a firm yet sensitive touch. Students will also learn the significance of the moon throughout this training.

This particular lomilomi training, focused on Finding Your Voice, helps you to develop your voice that is heard as well as your intuitive, inner voice.  We will explore various kinds of Hawaiian prayers and participants will learn to compose prayers for their own use. Prayer is common to all lomilomi lineages. It connects us to the divine and to the ancestors, and acknowledges that healing comes through us and not from us.

This lomilomi massage training, focused on “Finding Your Voice”, is one of 8 complementary training programs, each 16 hours long. Malia will give this current “Voice” training for 2 hours each on consecutive Sundays. Sometimes Kumu Malia compresses her training into a single weekend intensive, also 16 hours long. As a whole, her 8 complementary programs, each with its own focus, provide 128 hours of training that comprises her full culturally-based approach to lomilomi massage.

Here’s your chance to be trained in authentic Hawaiian massage techniques with cultural practices… not just inside but also at the beach!

Hawaii’s natural environment has given rise to unique healing practices. This summer lomi intensive training takes a closer look at this influence through visits to storied places and exercises in touch sensitivity at the beach.

Having first learned lomilomi as a child from her mother, then practicing it professionally for the last 20 years, Kumu Malia provides a foundation in lomilomi massage that is appropriate for use within the family or in a spa setting. The material is appropriate for both licensed massage therapists (LMT’s) as well as individuals who want to cultivate their ability to help their loved ones feel better through touch.

Topics include but are not limited to: Hawaiian terminology, opening and closing protocols, palpation, using the bones as guides, and body systems found in nature. Look forward to giving and receiving plenty of massage!

Hawaiian lomilomi massage is unique in all of the ways that Hawai’i is unique. To enhance their authentic lomilomi massage techniques, students will also learn relevant components of oli (chanting), hula (dance), pule (prayer) and ‘olelo (language). Lei making will develop skills in the hands and fingers as well as illustrate the importance of a firm yet sensitive touch.

For those interested in continuing their initial lomilomi learning, this 16 hour training is Part 2 of a continuing 8 part lomilomi program. Each part stands alone and the all parts can be taken in any order.
