What is Temple Style Lomilomi Massage?

Reiki HealingHawaiian Lomi Lomi Massage (otherwise known as Kahuna massage) is no ordinary massage; it is a merging of body, mind and spirit and is traditionally performed to honour the body as a temple of the soul.  Temple Style Lomi Lomi massage and is very different from a normal massage.  The massage seeks to rid the body of physical and mental stresses, and free up the energy flow. This is done with a combination of prayers, breathing techniques and intuitive long flowing massage strokes, flowing hula, tai-chi style dance movements and incorporating the huna breath.

Traditionally Lomi Lomi massage was part of the Hawaiian Rites of Passage as it is thought to be both transformational and healing. Those who experience it will cherish the memory as a unique, magical and memorable experience. It often leaves clients feeling energized and floating for many days.

It is one of the few massage techniques taught today which is truly holistic, incorporating many aspects of spirituality, healing and energy work into the physical massage.

LomiLomi massage session, what to expect?

lomiIt is a deeply connected and loving massage which has the ability to heal at many levels. The massage initially begins with the connection made between the practitioner and the client. An intention is set for spiritual, emotional or physical healing.  A time of stillness as the practitioner tunes into the clients body, energy and emotional needs.  This creates a safe environment and the receiver relaxes and trusts.  The practitioner begins by using warm oil and connecting, flowing strokes like waves of the ocean utilizing mostly using the forearms. The whole body is massaged and strokes can be over or under the body simultaneously.

A sarong is always used to maintain modesty, this allows for uninterrupted long flowing strokes over the entire body. For deeper work the therapist may use hands, elbows or knees. It can be offered either as a deep tissue, invigorating or relaxing massage.

The exploration & learning of this technique will positively expand your own personal development both physically, mentally and spiritually, as you learn aspects of Hawaiian spirituality.

Introducing your Lomi Lomi course teacher

Aloha! My journey with Hawaiian Lomi Lomi will always be a joyful path that I will continue to learn and evolve from.

Over many years I have had wonderful opportunities to learn and stay lengthy periods in Hawaii.  I have studied with several teachers and originally trained with Auntie Margaret Machado on the Big Island in Hawaii. She was the first Hawaiian (Kahuna) to introduce and teach Lomi Lomi to the west and also with Serge King and Tania from a Touch of Aloha. Learning with such wonderful teacher’s it has enabled me to really bring all of the magic together teaching the very best from all what I have learnt.

A Kahuna is a keeper of secrets within each Ohana (family). Each family can therefore teach different Lomi Lomi styles.  I therefore became curious to explore different teacher’s methods. The learning and exploring will joyfully continue as the Lomi style captivates my spirit and the essence of healing others. I have been blessed to be taught with some of the best teachers available. I feel this enables me to offer enhanced knowledge and experience of the best practices and styles.
