Hawaiian Lomilomi Massage Level 1 Workshop
Saturday, May 18, 2013 at 9:00 AM - Sunday, May 19, 2013 at 6:00 PM (EDT)
16 NCBTMB and Florida CE Hours
Hawaiian LomiLomi is transformational bodywork based on ancient kahuna traditions. Using sacred HA breathing techniques, visualization, Mana energy work and the rhythms of the Hula dance, it works gently but deeply into the recipient's body, mind and spirit, using continuous flowing wavelike strokes and nurturing the body. It is an experience that overwhelms the mind with sensations and at the same time communicates unconditional love, freedom, joy and acceptance to the inner self.
This course provides a basic foundation for the traditional healing art of Sacred Lomi Lomi, where students will learn body mechanics, the quality of touch, and how to incorporate intention, movement and position into their existing healing practice. The essence of this Hawaiian Temple style of bodywork consists of long, flowing forearm strokes that contribute to deep relaxation and a feeling of wholeness.
