Lomi Lomi Training Reviews
“Wow what a week it’s been of integrating all that I had learned and rediscovered about myself from the Lomi Lomi training experience, which was just that, an awesome and very rewarding experience. The spiritual aspect of the training was very reflective to what was happening within me. I do love your style of teaching and it wasn’t until the Lomi Lomi that I realised how subtle and profound your teaching is. Over the last two years, I have done with you Reiki 1 & 2, Karuna Reiki, Indian Head Massage and attended one of your Reiki Retreats and the Lomi Lomi was certainly the icing on the cake. Thank you. I would also like to thank Lexie Strathie, Tracey Floyd and Jamie for their beautiful souls in helping me to realise and conquer my inner truth. Lastly but not the very least I would like to thank Tina Marie Longleyand Dave for the exquisite hosting. Your home is very inviting and I so felt at home and enjoyed she pearls of wisdom that we shared”Irenibelle Bernard
“Attending last years Lomi Lomi course with ‘That’s Better’ was quite a change in my vocational direction, but something I felt ‘Called to’. I didn’t know if I would fit in beforehand, but talking with Lynda by phone put me very at ease that I would with, whatever the makeup of the group, (whatever backgrounds, experience or faith convictions we held).
We were a mixed bunch, but the common goal and accepting atmosphere quickly bonded us together.
Lynda’s style was easy going, and flowed intuitively with the needs of the group. I left with a confident ability in the training I received. Thank you Lynda, for all you shared with me.“
“I have just completed the four day Lomi Lomi massage course with Lynda. The course it self was so wonderfully ran and Lynda holds the space and the energy with a very loving way that allows you to not just learn the massage but feel like you are completely among very good friends. Lomi Lomi is a beautiful massage that is healing, transformative, relaxing and a gift to both those who give the massage and those who receive it. The whole experience is beautiful and a glimpse into the beautiful culture of the Hawaiians and their beautiful islands. Thank you Lynda.”Joanne Richardson
