Immerse yourself in the Aloha Spirit of Hawaii as you meet practitioners of Hawaiian Healing Arts and learn the songs, protocols and hands-on techniques of traditional practitioners of yesterday. The wisdom of the elders infuse this course with mana'o (thoughts) and pu'uwai (heart) for living a balance life and seeing the true essence of who you are, and how to give this gift to those you touch.
Includes techniques well adapted to a spa setting, including pohaku (hot stones), using salt water, hot compresses and herbal medicines. This style of lomi is loving and non-intrusive, yet incredibly deep and effective. Draping is done throughout, as well as pule (prayer) for guidance, all set to gentle music and the 'HA' breath as you learn a full routine. Will also include techniques like 'opu huli (clearing of the abdomen and piko).
