Aloha House is the home

of Lomi Lomi Ireland


Lomi Lomi training retreats

Anyone who wants to learn, practice professionally, use for family use or for personal development can train in Lomi Lomi Massage with Lomi Lomi Ireland.

Lomi Lomi ultimately treats those who are experiencing stress, tension or pain. It uses the forearms and hands in long flowing strokes all around the body to give a deep and energetic massage that can free the body from blockages or pain. Post treatment benefits include psychological & emotional wellbeing, deep relaxed state and a sense of wholeness & wellbeing. This massage also uses our Ha (breath) & Pule (prayer) to create a sacred & spiritual element to the treatment.

The teacher of Lomi Lomi Ireland is Louise McEvoy. After years of teaching in South Africa, she moved to Ireland in 2008 where she founded “Lomi Lomi Ireland – School of Hawaiian Healing Arts”. Read more about Louise Here.

Accommodation is sharing & meals are vegetarian.

Lomi Lomi training information

  • Items to bring: 1 small hand towel, 4 sarongs or single flat sheets, 500 mls massage oil (eg. Coconut/sweet almond/grapeseed etc), walking shoes & rain jacket, comfortable clothes to massage in, personal toiletries, notebook, pen & water bottle
  • Ideal for: Anybody who wants to learn, practice professionally, use for family use or for personal development.
  • Insurance required for practicing in Ireland: You will need a Diploma in Massage (ITEC or equivalent) in order to add Lomi Lomi as one of your therapies. You can do the training whether or not you are a massage therapist, however for insurance you will need a professional qualification including Anatomy & Physiology.
  • Starting at Level 1: if you’ve had a previous teacher, we still advise to start at Level 1 as all teachers are different and bring their own individual experiences which influence the training.
  • Retreat style training: the nature of healing work lends itself to participants learning retreat-style. This way, we can spend more time together, focus completely on the work without having to go home and cook the dinner etc. The hours of training are often early mornings & late nights, so staying at the venue makes it more practical. It’s also an opportunity to make human connections & establish Ohana.
