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.
The word Ho'opa'a means to bring it all together. In Ho’omana’s Fall Mastership, you will explore authentic Hawaiian Healing for the body and then dive deeper into the spiritual and energetic encoding behind the bodywork.
Learn the full-body art form of Lomi Lomi massage, explore the Ha-breath work and receive tools for deep clearing and cleansing for both therapist and client. In Advanced Lomi Lomi, students are taught the system developed by kupuna, elders, called the “Wisdom of the Bones”.
Learn a lifestyle practice for embodying Hawaiian spiritual healing, heighten your receptivity to divine transmissions and assist clients in shifting their energetic framework backwards and forward in this 19-day retreat.
Additional costs include housing, food and transportation.

Sacred sites tour: Students explore Maui's rich culture through legend and lore in a "talk-story" style. Visit the island's most sacred energetic landscapes and Hawaiian temples. Learn about plant medicine, ritual cleansing at the mountain and the ocean. Take part in chanting ceremony.
Advanced Lomi Lomi: Core & Skeletal Alignment:
From a Hawaiian Perspective, our backbone is a symbol of an ancestral connection. The bones are your living record of being, the doorway to life and ancestral wisdom of the soul. The kupuna, ancestors, offer stability and support just as the spine supports the body. When the physical body is brought into alignment, there is a space held for the spiritual, emotional, and mental bodies to also realign.
Use Lomi Fundamentals to relax and warm the muscles, then apply advanced techniques to release the joints at the tendon and ligament attachments. Address acute injury without causing more pain for your clients. Support the skeleton and surrounding muscles that play a critical role in wholeness and health.
Sacred Sites Tour: The advanced sacred sites tour explores the culture through legend and lore. We visit some of the island's energetic landscapes and Hawaiian temples on the West Shore. During the tour, students learn about the importance of bones and their meanings, ancestral wisdom and take part in chanting ceremony. We will have lunch at the ocean and cleanse before visiting one of Maui’s most secluded and potent sacred sites.
Advanced Lomi Lomi: Extremities and Attachments: Continue your instruction in the “Wisdom of the Bones”. This course focus on circulation of nutrients from the blood, elimination of waste products in lymphatics and communication of the nervous system. Emphasis is placed on following the symptom to it’s source. Increase flexibility and use subtle positioning to bring the body into optimal alignment all the way to the tips of the fingers and toes.
Ho’opa’a: This course is intended for the practitioner who has committed to Lomi as a specialty by integrating all courses offered through Ho’omana. After the practitioner has developed an understanding of working with the body through muscles, tendons, and attachments, and has integrated the mental/emotional aspect into their practice through Ho'oponopono, they are ready to dive deeper.
The word Ho'opa'a means to bring it all together. Join in this transformational course bringing the mindful practice of communicating down to the level of the bones in a physical sense together with the profound spiritual healing behind the work.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Will I receive a certificate for my course?
