Workshop Description:


Lomi Lomi is an ancient bodywork modality that was created by the Kahuna Healers of Hawaii. The dance like movements and techniques that are applied create an interconnected flow giving a feeling of being totally supported and cared for when receiving. This bodywork and the philosophy behind it conveys the "Aloha Spirit" and beauty with which the Hawaiian culture honors and celebrates itself. This body work is becoming more popular and sought out by massage practitioners and employers for the amazing experiences both therapists and clients have when giving and receiving and because the techniques saves your hands and wrists from fatigue and burnout, so it's a valuable skill to learn.

Testimonials:

"Lomi Lomi bodywork has expanded and energized my massage practice and my life. Sacred Temple Lomi Lomi is so much more than just another massage technique. The emphasis on compassion and the sacred nature of the work has had a profound effect on my internal well-being as well as my interactions with others both in and outside of work. Jason does an amazing job of preparing a safe and sacred space for transformation and personal and therapeutic development. I am beyond grateful to have him as a teacher and to experience this workshop." - Sara Schoonover

"What an amazing opportunity to grow both internally and in technique. I experienced in both giving and receiving a deep sense of connectedness, of truly being cared about, of inner peace. Jason does an amazing job cultivating a space for these qualities to really present themselves and be experienced. Physically, I feel more in tune with my tools (forearms) whether in a full Lomi Lomi temple session or integrating Lomi technique into sessions. Did I mention that I learned how to fly in 2 days? So cool!! Just imagine the possibilities 3 days holds in store =)" - Erica Hnilo
