Spring Lomi Lomi Advanced Intensive consists of four courses:
Lomi Lomi Fundamentals:
Ho’omana’s core introductory training is the foundation and pre-requisite for all courses. Learn full-body massage techniques that you can use to heal family, friends and loved ones, as well as:
- Proper assessment, palpation, and treatment of injury
- How to increase receptivity to intuitive guidance
- Hawaiian meditation techniques, healing chants and prayers to awaken the healer within
- How to create more harmony and balance through giving and receiving magical healing touch
Introduction to Ho’opono’pono, the Hawaiian’s clearing system to maintain energetic alignment and harmony with Spirit, self and others
Sacred sites tour: Students explore Maui's rich culture through legend and lore in a "talk-story" style. Visit the island's most sacred energetic landscapes and Hawaiian temples. Learn about plant medicine, ritual cleansing at the mountain and the ocean. Take part in chanting ceremony.
Advanced Lomi Lomi: Core & Skeletal Alignment:
From a Hawaiian Perspective, our backbone is a symbol of an ancestral connection. The bones are your living record of being, the doorway to life and ancestral wisdom of the soul. The kupuna, ancestors, offer stability and support just as the spine supports the body. When the physical body is brought into alignment, there is a space held for the spiritual, emotional, and mental bodies to also realign.
Use Lomi Fundamentals to relax and warm the muscles, then apply advanced techniques to release the joints at the tendon and ligament attachments. Address acute injury without causing more pain for your clients. Support the skeleton and surrounding muscles that play a critical role in wholeness and health.
Included in the Week Long Retreat:
Sacred Sites Tour: The advanced sacred sites tour explores the culture through legend and lore. We visit some of the island's energetic landscapes and Hawaiian temples on the West Shore. During the tour, students learn about the importance of bones and their meanings, ancestral wisdom and take part in chanting ceremony. We will have lunch at the ocean and cleanse before visiting one of Maui’s most secluded and potent sacred sites.
Advanced Lomi Lomi: Extremities and Attachments:
Continue your instruction in the “Wisdom of the Bones”. This course focus on circulation of nutrients from the blood, elimination of waste products in lymphatics and communication of the nervous system. Emphasis is placed on following the symptom to it’s source. Increase flexibility and use subtle positioning to bring the body into optimal alignment all the way to the tips of the fingers and toes.
Kua Lua - Hawaiian Back Walking:
Kua Lua is the traditional style of back walking and footwork. Students will learn to work with specific implements gathered from nature. Use these tools to assist with balance, coordination and intuition. Through this advanced technique, students gain the ability to feel with their feet in the way one would feel with their hands. This is an excellent form of massage for more dense clients who need additional depth in their treatment, as well as journey on their breath, release toxins, increase circulation and move stagnate energy.
All Lomi Lomi courses are taught by Jeana Iwalani Naluai, MPT, LMT and her team of lomi specialists. Through talk-story, demonstration, and hands-on practice, students will experience this foundational learning in a rich way. Our instructor’s knowledge is passed down through a long lineage of master practitioners. Ho’omana Lomi Lomi Training is dedicated to the development of each student’s mind, body and spirit. We are committed to a supportive and quality learning experience that inspires transformation.
