lomi lomi movie gallery

Enjoy these videos to get a feel for lomi lomi bodywork - specifically lomilomi as I have learned it over the past 20+ years from several teachers.  My study of Mana Lomi with founder Dr. Maka'ala Yates from 2003-2016 created the primary foundation of my work.

demonstration: introduction to awareness massage lomilomi

This video shows me demonstrating a basic Awareness Massage Lomilomi, and includes lots of specific commentary.  It is 38+ minutes, and was recorded in 2015

Please watch this video before taking the Awareness Massage Lomilomi Foundations class.

This video includes many specific tips about how to get your weight behind your work in a way which is different than is taught in most massage schools. Due to prior training and experience doing massage, most of my students need to retrain their bodies to successfully do this work.  This retraining requires discipline comparable to learning to drive in traffic on the opposite side of the road than you are accustomed  to, in a car in which the placement of the gas petal and break have been reversed.  It can be tricky before it then becomes natural and easy.

Watching this video before class will facilitate your learning, and will help me to more easily and successfully teach the class.

Thank you for taking the time to watch this video before attending class.

This slide show introduces the 12 day Lomilomi Immersion workshop I offer annually.

 lomilomi with hot stones

This video demonstrates lomilomi done with hot stones.  It was recorded in 2014  and is 20:23 minute long.

 Watching this video before taking a lomilomi with hot stones class with me will facilitate your learning experience.  Watching it after class is useful for review.

Breast and chest massage

 "Well Breast Massage 1" - focuses mostly on women

In this video instructor Barbara Helynn demonstrates massage of the chest/breast as she integrates it into holistic, full body, wellness focused sessions for her clients who desire it.  Of course, including breast massage in a session is always optional, following the the choice of the receiver.  The model in this video is female. (3:36 minutes)

 "Well Breast Massage 2" - focuses on both men & women

This video is similar to the video above.  However, this video shows chest/breast massage as done for both men and women.  (2:38 minutes)


 "Abdominal Visceral Massage using lomilomi"

In this video I demonstrate palpation of the stomach, liver, gall bladder, small intestine, ileocecal valve, and the colon, as well as the fascia along in the lower part of the abdomen.  (about 15 minutes)


Although the videos in this section were recorded when I was a full time Mana Lomi teacher, most of what I say in these videos applies to the work I continue to do as Awareness Massage Lomilomi.
