LomiLomi Level 1 & 2 certification for healthcare PROVIDERS, March 23th & 24th, 2019
with Kumu Francine Dudoit Tagupa
Director, Traditional Hawaiian Healing Waikiki Health Center, Honolulu, HI
Lomilomi is an ancient Hawaiian healing practice integrating spiritual health, bodywork and energy flow. Benefits are similar to other recognized massage techniques, with the application of full body strokes, stretching and pressure points to improve immune response, circulation, range of motion, and mind-body-spirit connection. The therapist uses hands, forearms and elbows to work with clients who are fully clothed. Lomilomi is practiced with the spirit of aloha (love) and care of life force (mana) to restore balance (pono).
This Lomilomi basic level 1 course is founded on traditional Hawaiian wisdom, integrating contemporary knowledge of anatomy, physiology, pathology, interpersonal skills, ethics, and safety in massage therapy practice. Indigenous teaching and learning approaches are honoured in this experiential (hands-on) and discussion-based course, with guidance from a traditional Hawaiian healer & Elder.
Participants will identify and apply introductory level lomilomi techniques in their assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of soft tissues and joints for their client’s preventative care and/or therapeutic outcomes. Participants will apply knowledge through lomilomi practice on each other.
