Throughout my time in Hawaii I was very fortunate to study and train with many of the Hawaiian elders who by 1999 felt it was time to share the gift of lomi to a wider audience. Since 1975 on the Big Island of Hawaii, I recorded many of my lomi lomi workshops and interviews with many of the Hawaiian elders responsible for my knowledge and passion with lomi. If your interested in learning more about this beautiful, spiritual healing art, I encourage you to read more about the lomi eBook here and the Lomi Lomi DVD series here.
Lomi Lomi Massage – Practical Techniques
Traditional Hawaiian Lomilomi includes many practical massage techniques that have helped people relax, detoxify, recover and maintain natural health holistically for hundreds of years. One example of a popular, traditional technique that is very beneficial to everybody in overcoming indigestion and cleansing the digestive system, a condition called 'opu huli, is a deep but gentle abdominal massage to gently but firmly assist movement, as shown above.
Since 1993, I've been studying Hawaiian cultural healing arts and lomi lomi massage techniques directly from Hawaiian elders over several decades. Just some of the elders that I counted as my teachers and friends included;
- Uncle Robert Keliihoomalu (above)
- Aunty Margaret Machado
- Uncle Kalua
- Papa Kepelino
- Aunty Mary Fragas
- Papa Henry Auwae
- Doctor Maka'ala Yates
- Kumu Leina'ala Brown
- Aunty Mahealani (below)
Regardless of if you are just starting out as a massage practitioner or indeed have many years of practical experience, it will give you fresh insights and inspiration into the joy of practicing lomilomi massage.
