What you'll do

*Activity is best for couples/friends -(2 people)* We will gather onto my back lanai and start learning about the history and ancestry behind Lomilomi! Lomilomi meaning 'loving touch' is the Hawaiian way of healing. It is a spiritual form of bodywork. From there I will teach you the true meaning of Aloha, there is more than meets the eye than just a hello and goodbye. You will then begin to truly see from the eyes of Hawaiians, what aloha signifies. We will do a guided group breathing/grounding practice to help bring a sense of calmness, leaving all worries behind. I have a special oil that comes from the Big Island itself, bringing us closer to the roots of the islands. From there I will show and teach the art of Lomilomi, and we will practice on one another. You will learn a sacred prayer to bless the body, learn several long strides of lomi massage to apply to the body, and finish gracefully with aloha. When we have all finished we will gather for a ending meditation to pay ourselves, our peers, the Hawaiian ancestors our respect on practicing their ancient ways of healing.

Where you'll be

I have a cottage tucked away near the North Shore of Maui. After being welcomed with aloha we will continue on my lanai in big comfy chairs with privacy, being surrounded by endless plants and trees. I will teach you about ancient ways of healing practiced for thousands of years.

Guest requirements

Up to 2 guests ages 18 and up can attend. Bring swim suit for the lomi massage portion. Wear loose comfortable clothing. Able to use hands. Ok with moving up and down from the ground. May bring yoga mat, pillows, anything comfortable for meditation…

More tips

Bring swim suit to wear for lomilomi & clothes you don’t mind that could get oily. There are a few stairs you have to take getting up onto the lanai, no wheel chair access. If there are more then 2 people in a group - the duration of the experience could take longer. Make time for after :)
