Event description


New Zealand Cultural Healing Tour

Hawaiian Insight. Maori Wisdom. Discover the Healing Arts of the Pacific with Ho'omana

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.

February 22 - 26, 2019

Join Kumu Jeana Iwalani Naluai and travel to Aotearoa (New Zealand) to explore the healing arts of the indigenous people of the Pacific. Begin with authentic Hawaiian teachings of Lomi Lomi for the body and then dive deeper into the spiritual and energetic encoding behind the bodywork during this 5-day workshop.

Lomi Lomi Fundamentals

Ho’omana’s core introductory training is the foundation and pre-requisite for all courses. Learn full-body massage that combines modern, scientific technique and ancient Hawaiian wisdom for healing at all levels:

* Proper assessment and treatment of injury

* How to create more harmony and balance through giving and receiving magical healing touch

* Ho’opono’pono, the Hawaiian’s clearing system to maintain energetic alignment and harmony with Spirit, self and others

Advanced Lomi Lomi: Extremities

We focus on advanced techniques to create space in the joints of the spine, arms and legs from the tips of the toes to the ends of the fingers.

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

Feb 25-26, 2019

***This 5-day training is the first part of a 14 day international healing retreat and Hawaiian / Maori cultural exchange. There will be an official powhiri for our international visitors on the 21st Feb.***

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. Lomi Lomi courses can be taken individually, but keep in mind that Fundamentals is a pre-requisite course Advanced Lomi Lomi training.

Will I receive a certificate for my course?

After each course is completed, students receive a formal and certified certificate with the Nationally Approved Provider verification information for continuing education units. Currently, we are certified with:

Ho’omana is committed to expanding our network of accreditation. If there is an organization you would like us to contact, please ask.
