Intro to Lomi Lomi Massage

Intro to Lomi Lomi Massage

Course Description: Lomi means to knead or rub in a gentle manner. Lomi Lomi is the ancient Traditional massage of Hawaii that incorporates long, flowing, full-body massage strokes, breath work, prayer and intention, and natural elements to restore balance to the physical, mental and emotional body. 

Practitioners use long, flowing, continuous strokes with the hands, forearms and elbows and delicately address organs and joints. Attention is put on working in a mindful and loving manner. This type of bodywork, once more of a shamanic ritual, has gained quite a bit of popularity across the world.

Prerequisite: All of our classes are intended to serve as continuing education for massage therapists. All students must be licensed, certified, authorized, or otherwise credentialed to provide hands-on, manual therapy services in the state where they practice. All of our classes are approved by NCBTMB for CE hours. Most states accept NCBTMB hours. Some states may have different requirements or definitions of what is considered to be within the "Scope of Practice" for a massage therapist. If in doubt, please check with your state's Board of Massage. In some instances, advanced-level courses may have additional prerequisites that will be noted in the course description. 


All of our classes have minimum and maximum enrollments that can be accepted. If a class is getting close to being full, we may close online enrollment. If a class is closed online, you may still call us at #800-201-2247 to see if there are any additional spaces or to go on a waiting list. If you want to go, let us know!  On rare occasions, we do not meet the minimum number of enrollees or an unexpected situation occurs and we need to cancel or reschedule a class.
