Is Ho’omana Lomi Lomi Right for me?
Explore authentic Hawaiian Healing and then dive deeper. Learn the full-body art form of Lomi Lomi massage and how to approach bodywork from an ancient Hawaiian perspective.
Ancient Hawaiians believed that your mana, or spiritual life force, is held within your bones.
In Advanced Lomi Lomi, students are taught the system developed by kupuna, elders, called the “Wisdom of the Bones”. Learn to see beyond physical pain and navigate the emotional or spiritual components using this powerful perspective.
Previous bodywork is not necessary.
Ho’omana Lomi Lomi trainings are for anyone who is ready to access their own healing legacy to serve their family, community and the world.

kua lua: hawaiian backwalking
Learn to heal with your feet, just as you do with your hands! Kua Lua is a method deeply rooted in ancestral lineage and physical alignment. Use hands, forearms, sticks, stones, knees and feet to release the body at its deepest level. With intention, notice as the physical body returns to improved alignment, the spiritual/emotional body will also align.

I’ve taken Lomi Lomi workshops before, do I still need to take the required pre-requisite - Hawaiian Lomi Lomi Fundamental Training?
Ho'omana's Lomi Lomi sources from the lineage of the Big Island. This Lomi Lomi comes from lineage holder Auntie Margaret Machado who has now passed on. The idea behind this Lomi style then is to bring the persons spirit, mindset and bones back into alignment, the practice is known as Ho'onohoiwi (bone movers) and is advanced in comparison to most level one trainings available. Our intention is to connect with the individual down to the level of the bones and is very specific and therapeutic work.
Because of the process of this style of Lomi, the courses are incremental; therefore students need to take our entry level course, otherwise student may be lost or injure themselves or patient.
When Lomi is a path that you are passionate about, no training will be wasted but will serve the greater understanding of the practice as a whole. Because you have learned in another lineage, it will assist you with a more rapid integration beginning with our Hawaiian Lomi Lomi Fundamental Training.
We would be honored for you to join our courses, and the pre-requisite of Hawaiian Lomi Lomi Fundamental Training is required.
Can I take courses individually?
Yes. Courses can be taken individually, but keep in mind that Fundamentals is a pre-requisite course for every Ho'omana Lomi Lomi training. To request registration for single courses, please email email@example.com.
Will I receive a certificate for my course?
After each course is completed, students receive a formal and certified certificate with the Nationally Approved Provider verification information for continuing education units. The full course equals 117 CE hours. Currently, we are certified with:

I’m not a trained massage therapist. Can I still learn Lomi Lomi?
In ancient times, Lomi Lomi was family work, used to keep everyone in the home healthy and strong. Ho’omana’s style of lomi comes from the therapeutic approach of the 6 lineages of Hawaiian elders Kumu Jeana Iwalani Naluai had the privilege of studying with.
Ho’omana Lomi Lomi trainings are for anyone who wants to learn to access their own healing legacy that can serve your family, community and the world.
Previous bodywork is not necessary. Even young children can learn to Lomi!
Do I need to apply for a F-1 or M-1 Visa (Student Visa)?
You will not need a student visa to enroll in our courses. Lomi Lomi is a cultural practice and your studies will be recreational, not for college credit, degree or academic certificate. You are considered a visitor or tourist. All of our international students enter the US with a standard tourist visa .
