Learn Authentic Hawaiian Lomilomi in Japan!
Hawaiian lomilomi was originally performed only by Kahuna (spiritual healer/shaman) and was used to revive the weakened. Today, it seems that its physical aspect of lomilomi using the forearm techniques largely seems to have been incorporated into therapeutic massage styles. Its spiritual aspect, however, is rather more difficult to be succeeded, just like “yoga”. Yoga ultimately aims to unite one’s consciousness with the universal Love but only its body postures seem to be focused among many of its exercisers for physical benefits.
Practitioners not only of lomilomi but of any forms of therapies who pray for their clients’ health with sincere Love will heal because of the help of the masters in spirit form. That is why Kahuna begins the practice with prayers, performs the practice with prayers and ends the practice with prayers.
In this workshop, kumu Yasuko, who is licensed and longtime experienced practicing and teaching lomilomi massage in Hawaii, teaches both physical and spiritual aspects of Hawaiian lomilomi in addition to academic anatomical studies.
