WHAT IS LOMI?
This transformational bodywork originates from a rite of passage ceremony that emerged from the ancient healing practices of Hawai'i and Polynesia. This sacred work is utilized both for healing and invoking deep personal transformation. Lomi literally means to massage; to separate, smooth and put back together. We are learning to Lomi ourselves and life on all levels, essentially from our center, our Na'au, our instinct and our hearts.
