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。

Eriko Jones

Eriko serves as Still & Moving Center’s official Japanese/English translator of our website and as our contact person for all Japanese guests. She has traveled with and translated for our kumu hula (hula master) Malia Helela for since 2010. We prize Eriko’s warm graciousness as well as her excellent language skills.

Born in Tokyo and raised in Yokohama, Eriko moved to the USA in 1993 to attend college in San Diego, graduated from UCSD with B.S. Biology, and made her dream come true as a dolphin trainer! She also spent two years at a school in Los Angeles training to be an interpreter. With her American husband, their bilingual little boy, and many American and Japanese friends, she’s constantly working in both languages!

Eriko’s English/Japanese translation work, both written and spoken, has taken place in many settings: classes, workshops, in courts and law offices, hospitals, trade shows and business meetings. She does event planning and coordination, as well as marketing – mediating between the Japanese and English-speaking cultures.

Eriko is no ordinary translator. She goes into the ocean at sunrise for Hawaiian hiuwai ceremonies and hikes up mountains to interpret for hula dancers.  She has spontaneously modeled clothing for our boutique and played a role of magician/deer in a performance. She even emceed for a hula performance at Ala Moana Center Stage one time!

As one of those rare individuals who has trained dolphins, Eriko evidently speaks a third language: Dolphin!

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.

This Wao Lehua Red Tent womenʻs gathering takes place during the week of Earth Day. “Honua” is the Hawaiian word for the Earth. “Honua” also refers to pregnancy, in that a mother creates a world within her own body. We find healing as we cultivate the ability to listen to the stories of our bodies. Listening to the stories of places on the Earth that are dear to our hearts can also bring about deep insight and healing.

These ongoing Wao Lehua Red Tent womenʻs gatherings seek to provide a safe space for uplifting dialogue on any number of topics pertinent to the female experience. Lehua flowers are much beloved by the people of Hawaiʻi. The unique tufted blossoms figure prominently in Hawaiian chants and legends and is a poetic name for menses. Wao-Lehua means domain of the lehua blossoms. It is a dedicated space for women created near each new moon.

Hawai’i has a rich history of women gathering in seclusion while on their cycle. As in many ancient cultures, Hawaiian women used this time to rest and commune with each other on both mundane and sacred levels. This modern Red Tent welcomes women of all ages and lineages to celebrate the full spectrum of life together. We are inspired by the waxing and waning of the moon, understanding that our bodies follow a similar cycle. With that core belief, we welcome women and girls of all ages, female identifying individuals, and women who have experienced menopause or other menstrual variations. We look to the lunar cycles that connect us, allowing us a shared dance with a greater rhythm.
