Lomilomi has traditionally been practiced in the home.  This two hour workshop will provide you with practical and accessible lomilomi techniques that can be safely shared with your family and friends.  Our live, interactive online format lets you learn in the comfort of your own home. Lessons begin with self massage techniques and then progress to lomilomi for others. You will practice on each other during the workshop.

Therapeutic touch begins when a mom first smoothes her hands in wonder over her growing belly. Across human experience, skills develop as parents perform endless diaper and clothing changes and learn what helps to soothe their individual keiki. The need to provide reassuring touch continues through the bumps and bruises of childhood to the aching hearts of teenage life.  Whether or not we are parents ourselves, we remember what it felt like to be young and hurting and cared for – or wanting to be cared for.

We reach out in sympathy and kindness to friends who experience pain, both physical and emotional.  We gently hold hands with precious elders who may not be moving around the way they used to.  At the heart of the human experience is a calling to care for one another, and this can be accomplished beautifully through lomilomi.

Please make sure to have a pillow and a pareo/sarong nearby for class.  Lessons will take place on the floor. 

家族で気軽に参加。家で安全にできるロミロミマッサージ手法を学べます。

Kumu Malia クム・マリア

Kumu Malia Ko’i’ulaokawaolehua Helela  strives to live a life of grace. She began her formal training in lomilomi as a teenager. She was licensed by the State of Hawaii as a massage therapist in 1998 and as an esthetician in 2002. Her hula practice and lomilomi practice, she says, are the same. Her hula halau, which meets at Still & Moving Center, is Na Hula Ola Aloha. Completing her ‘uniki under Pulu’elo Park, Kumu Hula,  in 2002, Kumu Malia now teaches hula and oli to a wide range of students, from infants and toddlers to kupuna. Malia studied oli (traditional Hawaiian chant) under John Keola Lake, Kumu Hula. She has received her advanced lomilomi training from Kumu Keola Chan. She continues to look to the beauty and grace of the Hawaiian environment for grounding and inspiration.

Rather than an in-depth lomilomi training, this is a stand-alone event for you to enjoy on a single day. Lomilomi, like all forms of healing, is an unfolding process of many steps, and this would be a good first step!  

Kumu Malia’s Puana approach to lomilomi focuses on settling the nervous system and integrating all parts of the body into one.  Drawing on lessons from hula and lei making, students weave lomilomi massage techniques into a tailored treatment that addresses body, mind and spirit.

This activity begins and ends at Still & Moving Center, 1024 Queen Street, Honolulu, a community based mindful movement Center that has been offering multicultural classes, events and workshops for over 9 years, in the heart of Kaka’ako.

Highlights

  • The activity is led by kumu hula, Malia Helela, traditionally trained hula instructor, lomilomi practitioner and cultural advisor
  • The activity is offered with live simultaneous translation to Japanese.
  • Discover a new perspective through the eyes of a traditional healer and cultural practitioner
  • Learn about the historical highlights and evolution of the Hawaiian traditional art of lomilomi

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.

The shoulders and the hips form the 4 corners of the body. This particular lomilomi training, entitled “Corners of the Body,” weaves in deeper work for the large joints of the shoulders and hips.  These four corners mark the boundaries of the core body and its vital organs.

This “Corners of the Body” lomilomi massage training is one of 8 complementary training programs, each 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. Malia will give this current training compressed into a single  16 hours weekend intensive. 

Mālia Ko’i’ulaokawaolehua Helelā

Kumu Mālia is beloved by students around the globe for her kind heart and loving style of teaching, not to mention her deep knowledge, beautiful voice and exquisite dancing. She is a traditionally graduated kumu hula and lomilomi practitioner/trainer, as well as a cultural consultant for Still & Moving Center.

Malia Helela completed her hula ʻuniki (graduation) under Kumu Hula Puluʻelo Park in 2002, and studied oli (traditional Hawaiian chant) under Kumu Hula Keola Lake. Malia has been teaching both practices ever since to a wide range of students, from infants to kupuna, and leading her halau (school), Nā Hula Ola Aloha. Kumu Malia has personally taught thousands of hula students in Hawaii. Additionally, the many Japanese hula teachers whom she has trained over the years teach hundreds of their own students in Japan using the style, method and philosophy of Kumu Malia’s hula lineage.

Kumu Malia considers her hula practice and lomilomi practice to be two parts of the same whole. From her 20 years of lomi experience, she developed a 128 hour massage training program of her own called Puana Lomilomi, based on the intertwined practices of lomilomi, hula, pule, oli and lei-making.

As a member of Ka Pā o Lonopūhā, Malia participates in the sharing of native Hawaiian healing arts that focus specifically on lomi aʻe and elements of haki kino, laʻau lapaʻau and hoʻoponopono. Malia regularly teaches lomilomi for the Salvation Armyʻs Womenʻs Way program representing their cultural healing classes for women in recovery.

As an ambassador and guest lecturer of Hawaiian culture, Malia has delivered presentations for Leeward Community College, the Hawaii Yoga Institute, Outrigger Reef on the Beach, Mid Pacific Institute, Hawaiʻi Pacific University, Manoa Cottage, Honolulu Theater for Youth, numerous groups of International middle and high school students and Still & Moving Center. Kumu Mālia Helelā is currently researching and writing a trilogy of historic novels centered on the Kawehewehe and Kalia area. As a kumu hula and lomilomi practitioner, she looks to the ‘āina, the land, for grounding and inspiration.

 

 

Sarah herself began massaging her family at about age five, whenever they were sick or not feeling well in any other way. The healing power of touch fascinated her, and she had a natural will to share it with her loved ones. After extensive traveling, Sarah returns to Honolulu and Still & Moving Center ready to share her exquisite lomilomi massage practice, which she learned from the legendary kumu (master teacher) of lomilomi, Uncle Alva.

For three generations at least, massage has been a part of Sarah’s family’s everyday life. Her mother’s nanny in Iran massaged the children when they were ill or needing to sleep. Her mother also grew up with the tradition of going to Iranian bath houses where massage was offered for healing and health maintenance. Her mother gave Sarah and her sister massages almost nightly, especially when they were going through growing pains or other discomforts. 

Gifted in many fields, Sarah also grew up riding, grooming and training horses, with whom subtle touch is critical for communication. She communicates her artistic nature through dance, photography and  fine arts. Starting at age 12, she studied art under her grandfather, the well-known painter Snowden Hodges, eventually going on to study painting at the Florence Academy of Art in 2013. 

While studying in Italy, Sarah felt curiously out of balance. Drawn back by the healing powers of Hawaii, Sarah landed in Waimānalo under that healing hands of Alva Andrews, Kahuna Lomi Lomi. Her first session with Uncle Alva did wonders for Sarah’s own health and wellbeing, and also set her onto the path of practicing massage professionally. In exquisite natural timing, Kumu Alva was just about to start a new lomilomi training group. “He told me he was starting the new class series that evening and invited me to attend. I of course accepted, and after attending one class I knew I was beginning a lifelong journey in the healing arts.”  

Thrilled, Sarah attended every session of his training. Like his ancestors for the last 500 years, Alva Andrews believed that “the spirit of the individual must be healed; only then can permanent health be possible. Lokahi (Balance and Unity) of the mind, body, and soul is a must for total well-being.“ He remembered, as a kid, “when people would come over to the house, and his grandma and grandpa would make people feel better from their aches and pains. Starting with a pule (prayer), and then a good old fashion lomilomi, followed by a crack and a pop to align the posture, Alva learned at an early age the healing and spiritual effects of lomilomi.” 

As a grateful student of Uncle Alva’s Hawaiian lineage and her family’s Persian lineage, Sarah shares her gift of loving, healing touch with her clients, and we are proud and delighted to welcome her as one of our excellent bodywork therapists at Still & Moving Center.

You may already know Sarah, who started attending classes and workshops at Still & Moving the first year we opened, 2011. She played the lead role of Princess Sita to perfection in our Diwali play in 2016. We’re glad she’s back!

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.

“Finding Your Voice”, is one of 8 complementary lomilomi massage training programs, each 16 hours long. Malia will give this current “Voice” training compressed  into a single weekend intensive, 16 hours long. As a whole, her 8 complementary programs, each with its own focus, provide 128 hours of training that comprise her full culturally-based approach to lomilomi massage.
