Lomi Lomi is authentic Hawaiian healing for body, mind and spirit.
In ancient times, Lomi Lomi was family work, used to keep everyone in the home healthy and strong. Ho’omana’s style of lomi comes from the therapeutic approach of the 6 lineages of Hawaiian elders Kumu Jeana Iwalani Naluai had the privilege of studying with.
Ho’omana Lomi Lomi trainings are for anyone who wants to learn to access their own healing legacy that can serve your family, community and the world.
Previous bodywork is not necessary.
Ho’omana Lomi Lomi Training is an educational center, sharing the Hawaiian healing art form of Lomi Lomi massage and spiritual teachings of Aloha with those who are ready to find and embrace their own healing gifts. Our Kumu, Jeana Iwalani Naluai, is a native Hawaiian cultural practitioner. Meet her on YouTube.

Advanced Lomi Lomi Spring Intensive retreat includes:
Hawaiian Lomi Lomi Fundamental Training, April 10-13
(Ho’omana’s core introductory training is the foundation and pre-requisite for all courses.)
Advanced Lomi Lomi: Core & Skeletal Alignment, April 16-19

Kua Lua Hawaiian Back Walking, April 25-27
Ancient Hawaiians believed that your mana, or spiritual life force, is held within your bones.
In Advanced Lomi Lomi Spring Intensive, we begin our journey by warming and opening the musculo-skeletal system using methods covered in Hawaiian Lomi Lomi Fundamental Training. 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. Hawaiian Lomi Lomi Fundamental Training is a multi-dimensional form of structural Lomi Lomi, incorporating concepts of Hawaiian spirituality, meditation techniques, and indigenous values addressing the whole person.
Then, in Advanced Lomi Lomi: Core & Skeletal Alignment and Advanced Lomi Lomi: Extremities & Attachments, we focus on advanced techniques that create space in the joints of the spine and extremities for improved lubrication of the joints and structural alignment. Ancient Hawaiian teachings of the “wisdom of the bones” will fuel our work, as we explore the spiritual and emotional aspects of illness as they pertain to different areas of the body. Learn how to use various tools and advanced techniques to follow symptoms to their source and heal the body at a deep and holistic level.
In the final course, learn the profound impact of Kua Lua Hawaiian Back Walking, a method deeply rooted in ancestral lineage and physical alignment. Use hands, forearms, sticks, stones, knees and feet to release the body at its deepest level with the intention that as the physical body returns to improved alignment, the spiritual/emotional body will also align.
All Lomi Lomi courses are taught by Jeana Iwalani Naluai, MPT, LMT and her team of lomi lomi specialists.
Through talk-story, demonstration and hands-on practice, students will experience this foundational learning in a rich way. Our instructor’s knowledge is passed down through a long lineage of master practitioners. The various Hawaiian healing courses provide a learning environment with extensive and effective lomi lomi techniques, the Hawaiian philosophy of Ho’oponopono, meditation and chant.
Ho’omana Spa Maui is dedicated to the development of each student’s mind, body and spirit while ensuring a supportive and quality learning experience that inspires transformation.

I’ve taken Lomi Lomi workshops before, do I still need to take the required pre-requisite - Hawaiian Lomi Lomi Fundamental Training?
Ho'omana's Lomi Lomi sources from the lineage of the Big Island. This Lomi Lomi comes from lineage holder Auntie Margaret Machado who has now passed on. The idea behind this Lomi style then is to bring the persons spirit, mindset and bones back into alignment, the practice is known as Ho'onohoiwi (bone movers) and is advanced in comparison to most level one trainings available. Our intention is to connect with the individual down to the level of the bones and is very specific and therapeutic work.
Because of the process of this style of Lomi, the courses are incremental; therefore students need to take our entry level course, otherwise student may be lost or injure themselves or patient.
When Lomi is a path that you are passionate about, no training will be wasted but will serve the greater understanding of the practice as a whole. Because you have learned in another lineage, it will assist you with a more rapid integration beginning with our Hawaiian Lomi Lomi Fundamental Training.
We would be honored for you to join our courses, and the pre-requisite of Hawaiian Lomi Lomi Fundamental Training is required.
Can I take courses individually?
Yes. Courses can be taken individually, but keep in mind that Fundamentals is a pre-requisite course for every Ho'omana Lomi Lomi training. To request registration for single courses, please email email@example.com.
