What to Expect during Lomi Lomi Massage
For the past 3 or so years this original blog post, linked above, held the top position in Google. It made sense because the article was written based on years of training and immersion into Lomi, Hawaiian wisdom & culture and what sets this treatment apart. Recently, due to changes in the algorithm I am assuming, other articles are popping up. from AI, generic websites, and from sites that have no understanding beyond lazy copying and pasting of things here and there. This regurgitation of misinformation is disappointing.
If you are truly interested in what a Lomi Lomi Massage is like, spend some time reading this site.
I teach this work nationally and internationally on a selective basis. I travel all over the country and in fact the world at the request of clients who bring me to them, and I am happy to help you learn about this remarkable healing experience.
There is very little information of value, which is still in print, but if you would like to do further reading, I can recommend:
Na Mo’olelo Lomi Lomi
Makana Risser Chai has written a wonderful reference manual for topics within Lomi Lomi. She lives in Oahu and was also a student of Auntie Margaret Machado.
The book is a compilation of interviews and writings from Hawaiian elders collected by the Bishop Museum archives. You will find topics related to traditional healing practices like Lomi Lomi Hawaiian bodywork and La’au Lapa’au, Hawaiian plant medicine, Ho’oponopono and teachings about our Hawaiian spiritual values. The best book I know on the topic.
Others if you can find them are here:
Good luck in your reserach and I hope to see you.
A Really Good Massage Blog
I write about things that I myself need to be mindful of. ways in which I would like to improve. It is not from the perspective of preaching - but rather writing helps me work out what I myself need to do - we are all in this together.
