Lomi Lomi: Hawaiian Temple Massage (16 hours)

Lomi is a beautiful form of massage that originates from the islands of Hawaii. There are different forms of Lomi Lomi. In this class we will learn what is known as Lomi Lomi Hawaiian Temple Massage. Lomi Lomi means massage or “to weave.” Students combine flowing movement with the forearms, breath, and intention to create a most relaxing massage. The energy of this technique brings balance, clarity, and transformation to the recipient and can easily be incorporated with other forms of body work. Whether you are new to massage or a seasoned practitioner, Lomi Lomi will enhance your practice. In this class we will focus on some of the Hawaiian culture and the Lomi dance which is instrumental in learning the techniques. Students will come away with being able to perform a full lomi lomi session for the front and back of the body. A certificate of completion will be received for 16 hours which can be used toward PA and NJ massage relicensing.
