In the Hawaiian healing arts tradition, lomilomi uses massage with prayer and intention to facilitate physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Lomilomi massage helps increase circulation, restore motion, and eliminate or ease physical as well as emotional pain. By observing, listening, palpating, and intuiting, lomilomi practitioners strive to touch the human story stored deep in our clients’ tissues. Lomilomi practitioners also practice internal clearing so that we can be used as healing channels.
In HEARTSPIRE lomilomi classes, participants engage on all levels – heart, mind, body and spirit, for the health and well being of all: clients, students and teachers. Together we invoke spiritual guidance, touch with love and palpate with sensitivity while we apply specific Hawaiian bodywork techniques to support movement and healing. By opening our hearts and minds in the spirit of aloha, we cultivate a compassionate, supportive, and cooperative class environment.
The lomilomi we teach draws from our studies with over a dozen teachers of lomilomi and Hawaiian spirituality. Our work reflects both Kona format traditional lomilomi and Temple style lomilomi. We feel deep gratitude and respect for all of our teachers and for all the Hawaiian healing arts practitioners who have contributed to making lomilomi what it is today. Testimonials about our programs
We have studied lomilomi since 1990, and began teaching in 1993. We teach our Olympia workshops at our wooded 9 acre home, in a retreat-like setting complete with meditation trail, view of Mt. Rainier, workshop room for 12 students, hot tub and animals to cuddle – dogs, cats, and chickens. Around potlucks we create an ‘ohana (family) experience of personal sharing and support. We welcome students wishing to enrich and deepen their workshop experience to stay for the evening potluck and even the night and to join in sharing stories, music, poetry, dance, walks in the woods and other pleasant and bonding activities. We support students in their efforts to find as much inner healing as possible and to develop spiritually sensitive bodywork skills. We build and nurture community. We work to create peace, health and harmony in our personal and professional lives, and from there, throughout our world.
