Lomi Lomi Temple Style Massage

Temple style is a form of full body massage that is unlike any other massage modality. One of the most blissful massages you can receive. A Hawaiian Temple Bodywork session begins, ends, and is infused with ritual and prayer, setting the space as sacred. As a client receiving a Lomi Lomi massage the main difference from other massage styles is that the massage is performed on the whole body at once. The massage is given in fluid, rhythmic motion using the forearms as well as the hands. Some people have described this as feeling like gentle waves moving over the body. Lomi Lomi can be a spiritual vehicle for transformation within one’s self.

Hawaiian Massage simultaneously connects and revitalizes body, mind, heart and soul with the healing power of Aloha. Working at the core of our being, it calms, inspires and empowers us to create the life we desire. Aloha nurtures us with healing and abundant blessings.

A SMALL INTRODUCTION

Hawaian bodywork reflects the ancient spiritual connection that the authentic Polynesian population has practiced since the beginning of time with their ancestors , the land and the breath of life or Aloha.

The famous Aunty Margaret Machado, one of the great elders of Lomi Lomi said our work is about “the loving touch, a connection with the heart, hands and soul with the source of life”.

I have been a bodyworker for a long time and from the very first moment Hawaiian bodywork came into my life it has empowered me, given my life more depth and meaning. I am convinced it will enhance your life, as well as those around you.

PATHWAY TO THE STARS   1 day introduction course Lomi Lomi

Meet one of the oldest and profound healing forms of bodywork. Lomi Lomi is the ceremonial and spiritual massage from Hawaii that aims to awaken the soul.
 
This one-day course contains an introduction to practical massage techniques. In addition, you learn important context by learning to work with Aloha (breath of life) and the HA breath and Mana (spiritual energy). You also learn some cultural and historical context of this art. There will also be time for reflection and integration. The experiences of this day will enrich you with a balance between body and mind.
 
This workshop is for everyone who is interested in the healing arts. No massage experience is required. If you work as a therapist you can of course integrate the learning in your practice. Lomi Lomi also called the Loving Touch or “Loving Hands” massage is a form of healing massage, expressed from the Heart.
 
The Lomilomi massage creates a connection from heart to heart. The depth of this work speaks through the healing touch. Physical stress, pent-up emotions, deeply felt transitions in life, or limiting beliefs and feelings can block the flow of energy, which is often reflected as muscle tension at various levels in the body. Lomi Lomi helps to release the blockades and at the same time gives the energy a new direction to a greater sense of wholeness, relaxation and liberation.
 
 
LomiLomi is not just a physical experience; it also facilitates recovery on the mental, emotional and spiritual.

Ancient Hawaiian Healing Techniques  

The ancient Hawaiian Kahuna (shaman) guarded the secrets of esoteric knowledge concerning the Universe.

In this one day workshop you will learn and experience the Aloha philosophy of love and Huna techniques for personal transformation and empowerment. You will be taught techniques and tools for putting this philosophy into practice. During this day you will be able to clear from your lifepath fears, beliefs and limiting decisions that no longer serve you or that are no longer useful for your personal growth.

Techniques you will learn include:

·         Ha Breathing – the secret energy power generation mechanism of the Kahuna.

Ha breathing was practiced by Kahunas for the purpose of healing, both self-healing and for the healing of others. It was also used for meditation and manifestation work.

·         Ho’o pono pono – an ancient and powerful process for aligning yourself and your relationships past and present, and for truly letting go.

·         The Huna model of the 3 minds or selves: The Huna teaches that we as humans are comprised of 3 selves, or 3 minds. An English translation of these would be to name them: subconscious; conscious; and the superconscious minds. Each of the three levels of self has its role to play in our lives and the best result is of course is an integration of the three, allowing for harmony and balance.

4.     Kalana Hula energy dance and blessing ceremony:based on elements of the sacred hula and the Hawaiian martial art of lua, these movements are designed to harmonize your personal energy as well as the energy of your environment.
