Jeana Iwalani Naluai

I am a Native Hawaiian. Lomi Lomi Instructor. Physical Therapist. Licensed Massage Therapist. Wife and Mother of 4. I am passionate about sharing Lomi Lomi and the spiritual teachings of Aloha.

As a kumu and Hawaiian cultural practitioner, my mission is to activate healers. I believe the students who join our Lomi ‘Ohana, family, are answering a call from generations past to carry this healing work forward to the present and future.

When you work with me, you’ll walk away with a set of tools for working with clients therapeutically, the knowledge of Hawaiian meditation, chant and sacred ceremony and a new awareness of the magic that exists in the world.

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. 

At this time, only 3 packages are offered for the New Zealand Culture Tour as listed above.

For Lomi Lomi courses, 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 160 CE hours. Currently, we are certified with:
National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork:
Massage Therapy Association of Alberta:
Remedial Massage Therapy Association:
National Health Practitioners of Canada:
Australia Association of Massage Therapists:
College of Massage Therapists of Ontario:
Irish Massage Therapists Association:
Association of Registered Complementary Health Therapists of Ireland
Ho’omana is committed to expanding our network of accreditation. If there is an organization you would like us to contact, please ask.
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!

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. Please consult the New Zealand visa information available online:
