Hawaiian Lomi Lomi Fundamental Week-Long Training Includes Hot Stone Therapy (60 hours)
In this course the practitioner will learn a full body Lomi Lomi massage technique that addresses muscle imbalances, limited range of motion and musculoskeletal dysfunction that is both specific and therapeutic in it’s application. This course is the foundational work upon which all other Lomi classes being taught at Ho'omana Spa Maui will build. This approach follows in the lineage of Big Island Style Lomi intended to instill a level of skill necessary for proper assessment, palpation, and treatment of injury. Lomi Fundamentals is a multi-dimensional form of structural lomi incorporating concepts of Hawaiian spirituality, meditation techniques, and indigenous values addressing the whole person.
Students will learn to use hot stones to relax muscles tissues, increase circulation and release tension in the body. These heated tools act as an extension of the therapist’s hands to administer traditional lomi lomi techniques learned in Hawaiian Lomi Lomi Fundamental Training.
Advanced Hawaiian Lomi Lomi Week-Long Training (60 hours)
Advanced Hawaiian Lomi Lomi Training Focusing on Core Musculature and Skeletal Alignment - Once the muscles have been warmed and relaxed in Lomi Fundamentals, 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. 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. Learn how to release and restore alignment to these commonly symptomatic areas using subtle lomi lomi procedures. From a Hawaiian Perspective, our back bone 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.
