Lomi Lomi is the Hawaiian word for “massage”, though it’s deeper meaning & application has many layers. Traditionally, this healing art was practiced within families, each with their own unique style, and passed on by the elder to a chosen family member to continue the lineage. Lomi Lomi is rooted in ancient Polynesian knowledge & a unique way of thinking & seeing the world.
In order to understand what Lomi Lomi is, the deeper applications of this work, we need to explore Hawaiian consciousness, to get to the roots & foundation of what it is, where it comes from, and what is asked of us in order to be able to practice this work. This is especially important if we are non-Hawaiians. To have respect for this sacred work, we must have a connection with the people, the source, the land, the stories, the language, the chants, the prayers, the protocols, the way of thinking, the proverbs, the dance, the myths & legends.
