Introduction to the Heart of Hawaiian Lomi Massage
This 2 hour course will discuss the history of Lomi Lomi, an ancient form of Hawaiian bodywork that was considered by some to be a rite of passage for villagers, performed by kahunas and elders. Attendees will learn about basic strokes, the benefits of the work for their clients as well as themselves, and how this work will effect their massage practice.
