THE SPIRIT OF LOMILOMI AND HO’OPONOPONO

Lomilomi and Ho’oponopono is an ancient healing art that has been passed down by the master practitioners (kahuna) and elders (kupuna) bearers of light, love and knowledge. A level of spirit is awakened through this work that penetrates deeply into the spirit truly inspires healing. This exquisite gift has been passed down from generation to generation amongst the natives of the Hawaiian Islands. Components of this healing practice include prayer (pule), breath (ha), massage movement of energy (mama). Psychological cleansing and counseling (ho’oponopono) and other powerful wellness treasures. All of these combined with the loving intention of the practitioner create a healing experience that is at once profound and deep. This art is the practice of lovingly and mindfully massaging the client as though they are a beloved family member (ohana). Appropriate for all ages, Lomilomi facilitates the bridging of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being and harmony (lokahi).

My teachings come from my grandmother, uncle and aunt in the Hawaiian arts of ho’oponopono, lomilomi and la’au lapa’au. These modalities are practiced at Waikiki Health, Oahu, Hawaii.
