2. About this Course

The KaHuna (healers) Lomi Lomi were masters of body manipulation and healing massage. They practiced their ancient art with a deep connection to nature, surrounded by ocean breezes, colorful sunsets and unpredictable volcanoes

Hawaii based Sherman Dudoit gave his blessing to train facilitators in the Heartworks Lomi Lomi method. Kaye Dixon undertook this intensive training so she can pass on this unique Hawaiian healing massage. This relaxing and Therapeutic massage includes long fluid rhythmic strokes over the whole body using the hands as instruments of the heart. Lomi combines deeply relaxing techniques with energy balancing and remedial deep tissue work.

You will be shown a number of different draping techniques so trust and safety is maintained for the differing needs of all clients and therapists. Modesty and professionalism is paramount and observed at all times.

The traditional Lomi Lomi massage healers connected with “spirit” and their touch communicated deep to the bones of the receiver. The use of prayer (Pule), breathe, (HA) energy (Mana) and intention in their massage work contributed to vibrant and healthy Hawaiian communities.

While Lomi Lomi is a massage it is also about reconnecting with spirit and it this combination that gives it such powerful potential for healing of each individual client. While it may be referred to as a spiritual massage the technique also has many practical and specific benefits .True Lomi Lomi also works on an emotional level and after a session the receiver often experiences freedom from worry, anxiety, fear and other negative thought patterns. The true purpose of Lomi Lomi is to bring balance and a sense of well being of body, mind and spirit._MG_1364

“Lomi Lomi massage is a respite from the outside world; a sacred experience where the massage table becomes an altar and divinity touches humanity.” A Full Body Hawaiian Lomi Lomi massage is taught over three full days. Imagine being energized by the sun rays, connected to the heart of mother earth, cleansed and revitalized by the waves of the ocean, this is how you feel after three days of the Hawaiian Heartworks Lomi Lomi Course.

7. Testimonials

My name is Tracey (lunasea ) I did the Hawaiian lomi lomi course with you a couple of years ago since then I’ve done hundreds of massages with clients more than happy when they leave with comments saying its the best massage they have ever had to people wanting to take me home, I’m now wanting to learn the hot stone massage…

 

Hi Kaye, I had such a wonder filled time during the lomi lomi I have had great feedback from my massages and for my regular clients who like their certain massages as creatures of habit, they also have noticed me doing something different. I love the flow of this massage and it adapts very well to my other modalities. I will look forward to doing another course with you soon.
