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.
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.

Please watch this video ↑ before taking the Awareness Massage Lomilomi Foundations class.
video shows a detailed demonstration of lomi lomi massage. It 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.
