What to Expect From Our 60 Hour Advanced Training:
The format will be a 7 day intensive covering Lomi Lomi Advanced Training. Once you have used the Lomi Lomi Fundamental techniques to warm the muscles, Lomi Advanced Techniques are administered focusing on the releasing of joints at the level of the tendonous and ligamentous attachments. This approach allows the practitioner to address acute injury without exacerbating painful symptoms. Emphasis is placed on following the symptom to its source ultimately assisting in increasing range of motion at the joint level and alignment and function of the musculoskeletal system.
Ho'omana will also teach Hawaiian philosophy and ancestral lineage. In the mid-week, we embark on an excursion touring sacred energetic sites. On this tour we will learn about ritual cleansing, chanting and visiting sacred Heiau's (Hawaiian Temples).
Advanced Hawaiian Lomi Lomi Focusing in Core and Skeletal Alignment:
Proper movement and function of the body is dependent upon the stability created by the axial skeleton and the muscles that support these structures including the pelvis, lumbar, thoracic and cervical spine. The student will learn how to release and restore alignment to these commonly symptomatic areas using subtle Lomi Lomi procedures.
From a Hawaiian Perspective, our backbone is a symbol of an ancestral connection and the stability offered as a result of ancestral support. The intention behind the work is that by bringing the physical body into alignment, there is a space held for the spiritual, emotional, and mental bodies to also realign.
Advanced Hawaiian Lomi Lomi Training Focusing on Attachments and Extremities
The circulation of nutrients from the blood, elimination of waste products in lymphatics and communication of the central to peripheral nervous system is dependent upon open pathways in these body systems. Once core musculature has been flushed and the drains of circulation opened, the extremities are free to flush toxins as well.
Advanced Lomi Lomi techniques are administered focusing on the releasing of joints at the level of the tendonous and ligamentous attachments allowing the practitioner to address acute injury without exacerbating painful symptoms. Emphasis is placed on following the symptom to it's source ultimately assisting in increasing flexibility and using subtle positioning to bring the body back into optimal functional alignment all the way to the tips of the fingers and toes.
