Lomi Lomi Nui

Lomi Lomi Nui is called by many “the most beautiful massage on Earth”. It is a nourishing touch that helps to release physical pain, balances emotions, and brings peace. This ancient healing art has been passed on through generations in Hawaii and eventually made its way to other parts of the world. 


Abraham Kawai’i, the father and the founder of this massage modality, defined this bodywork as a ‘physiologically based psycho-spiritual transformation’

This unique holistic bodywork restores the balance within the body and between body, mind, emotions, and spirit. It also supports well-being. When our body, mind, and heart are in balance, life-giving energy flows freely. We are able to solve our problems with ease. In conclusion, serenity, calmness, and natural balance come back to us. We become more optimistic, joyful, and ready to act. We naturally follow our passions and inner callings and as a result, we can easily experience happiness and abundance in our life.

More about this training

During this 6-day immersive training, you will learn the basics of Hawaiian (Lomi Lomi Nui) massage and will be able to start giving massages right away! This training intentionally was design for a small group, with no more than 9 participants. Combined with 2 facilitators it gives you comfort and an almost individual approach. And for us, as the teachers allow us to accompany you fully in your process. This is the way we like working the most. To provide supporting environment and the best quality of learning.

In order to take part in this training, you do not need to be, or even want to be a professional massage therapist. The course we offer is for people who are interested in starting or deepening their massage practice and bringing Lomi Lomi to their clients and community. It is also for those who do not wish to become a massage therapist but want to connect to their healing abilities and share this massage with their loved ones, family, and friends. 

This training is facilitated by a certified teacher and is equivalent to Kino Mana Level 1 according to Kino Mana Training System, Aloha International, Hawaii. More info about this path of development you can find here.
