Our registered massage therapist, Joanna Rogowska has recently returned from her trip to Hawaii where she studied Lomi Lomi massage.
In 2013 I traveled with my family to Thailand. While there I took the opportunity to complete a course on Thai Massage at the well known Massage School of Chiang Mai. My clients so enjoyed some of the new techniques I learned that I thought when we were traveling to Hawaii this year I should further my education of massage by taking a course in the great ancient Hawaiian healing technic of Lomi Lomi.
We traveled directly to Maui and after a day to adjust and rest I was off to school at Ho’omana. The school is owned and operated by Jeana Iwalani Naluai, MPT, LM, a very well known Lomi Lomi therapist in Hawaii. She has been practicing bodywork for over 20 years and been an instructor in the Hawaiian Lomi Lomi massage since 2005. She is now traveling around the world teaching Lomi Lomi.
The course was an amazing experience with many new techniques, which I hope to use in my work with all my clients. The gentle but firm approach of Lomi Lomi has been helping to heal Hawaiians for centuries.
Our holiday was a total success. We enjoyed our time on Maui, hiking to the bottom of a very old volcanic crater, hiking up rivers to swimming in freshwater pools under the waterfalls and of course whale watching and exploring different beaches. We finished the holiday visiting Honolulu and then flew home.
I look forward to putting some of the new techniques I learned into practice with all my clients.
It was a great holiday and one that will always bring back fond memories.
