Hawaiian Lomilomi Massage

Lomilomi is the traditional style of massage from Hawaii. There are many lineages of Lomi that have been passed down since ancient times. They all share a holistic approach, treating body, mind, and spirit as one.

Lomilomi Massage

I draw from several lineages of Lomilomi, to suit the needs of the receiver. Long strokes emulate the ocean waves to integrate the whole body, move energy, and release pain, tension, and blockages. This improves circulation and helps the lymphatic system eliminate toxins. I may also include stretches, twists, creating space, and bonewashing to aid in the release process if that is called for.

Lomilomi can have profound impacts on mental, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing. It promotes deep relaxation and stress relief, and can be used to access and release emotional baggage and traumas. Sessions often include meditation and breath to help us reconnect with our body, feelings, and sense of purpose and potential in life.

Recommended Duration: 60 or 90 minutes

Temple-Style Lomi Deep Joint Rotations

Lomilomi Massage with
Deep Joint Rotations

Temple-Style Lomi, a lineage that uses rhythmic forearm strokes and manual stretches also traditionally included Deep Joint Rotations.

 

In this process, each joint (shoulders, hips, knees, elbows, wrists, ankles, and neck) is rotated very slowly at its maximum range of motion several times in each direction. This process clears out the joint sockets where some Hawaiians believe we store old traumas and emotions and increases range of motion.

Recommended Duration: 2 hours

Temple Style Lomi

Lomi Ke'alahoku ~
The Pathway to the Stars

Ancient Lomilomi, known as Ke Ala Hoku, came from Old Hawaii where it was offered as a ceremonial rite of passage in the temples. It would last anywhere from 10 hours up to 2 weeks, and would serve to bring the receiver into alignment within themselves and within their community.

These sessions should be approached with a different mindset than normal massage, even my other Lomilomi offerings. There is no intention to fix, heal, or solve anything. We are simply in motion with whatever arises, allowing everything that is present to have space to be heard. The sessions do not have a time commitment but generally last 2-3 hours.

Recommended Duration: Open-Ended

Lomi Ha Breathwork

Lomi HA Breathwork

Lomi HA is Hawaiian-Style Breathwork that creates deep, lasting change. This is a very effective method for letting go of baggage and trauma, clearing the way for your goals to manifest.

This can be booked on its own or incorporated into a Lomi Massage.

Recommended Duration: 60 minutes on its own or 30 min add-on to a lomi massage.

Tandem Lomi Massage

Tandem (4-Hands) Lomi involves two practitioners working in synchronicity. This feels amazing and has a balancing effect on the nervous system. It also allows for an even greater depth of work to take place during a single session. With four hands moving around the body in harmony, the mind is lulled into a trance, and deep healing can take place.

Recommended Duration: 60 or 90 minutes

Lomi & Reiki Tandem Session

In these special sessions, you receive the combined benefits of bodywork and energy work, which creates a powerful experience for the receiver!

These sessions are especially helpful if you are working with challenging circumstances, mental/emotional distress, or anxiety.

Recommended Duration: 60 or 90 minutes

The Body Tune Up

The Body Tune Up is a two-part system designed to improve your health and wellbeing. You can receive either part individually or as a pair. I recommend combining them with a Lomilomi massage to give your system a thorough detox.

Digestive System Rebalancing

All health begins in the gut. When people take on too much stress, it overloads valves in the digestive tract, causing toxin recycling. This breaks down the colon lining and causes a wide range of symptoms. This is known as Leaky Gut Syndrome.

In this session, I use muscle testing to check for Leaky Gut and manual adjustments to reset any valves that are not working properly. I also balance the meridian system and use acupressure points to detox the colon. For most people, this work requires a 14 day meal plan to allow the gut to heal. The combination of adjustments and meal plan is very effective at healing the root cause of Leaky Gut.

Recommended Duration: 1 Hour or 2 hours with a Lomi Massage

Passive Structural Alignment

In this session, I use muscle testing to check the alignment of vertebrae, ribs, hips, cranials, and more. Then I use a gentle technique based on the principles of Orthobionomy to press any misaligned bones back into place. This can drastically relieve back/neck pain as well as headaches/migraines. It can also improve posture, range of motion, and energy flow.

Recommended Duration: This takes about 10 Minutes which can be included in any length Lomi

Followup Maintenance Sessions are $20 each or 3/$50 and last about 10 minutes.

Retreats and Festivals

I have had the enormous privilege of sharing Lomilomi at festivals, events, and on local and international yoga retreats. Lomilomi has a capacity to delve deep into inner work while providing an amazing receiving experience, which makes it a perfect fit for retreats, festivals, and other events with a focus on spiritual growth and exploration.
