Hawaiian Lomilomi Massage
The Loving Touch by Martyn Kahekili Carruthers

Online Huna & Ho'oponopono . Hawaiian Shamanism

Lomilomi is traditional Hawaiian massage with a spiritual component. A lomilomi massage requires “loving hands” and includes skill and compassion. Lomilomi practitioners are trained to use their hands, forearms, elbows, knees, feet, special sticks (pu'ili) and smooth lava pebbles (pohaku).

Lomilomi Massage - The Loving Touch

Native Hawaiian people, isolated from the world in a stone-age culture, developed profound skills in the areas of healing and relationships. One basic Hawaiian healing skill is lomilomi - Hawaiian massage.

Lomilomi is based on a sense of connectedness, transmitted by loving hands and a loving heart. The long flowing strokes, combined with a loving touch, is very relaxing. It helps us find our inner pu'uhonua - our inner place of refuge - a place where we can change limiting beliefs and and unwanted fixations.

Although many people now teach Hawaiian lomilomi, few were taught by native Hawaiian healers and kumu (teachers). Very few people have the blessing of a Hawaiian healing lineage.

Lomilomi commences peacefully. You feel hands gently resting on your back. You may hear a short Hawaiian blessing or prayer, asking for your healing. You may be asked about what healing you want. The massage may then flow intuitively or follow a sequence.

Aunty Mona Kahele

Always ho'oponopono before lomilomi said Aunty Mona Kahele - and she should know. She was born in Ka'awaloa around 1910 and was trained by her kahuna grandfather in South Kona at a young age. Auntie Mona was honored by the governor of Hawaii for her social work.

Aunty Mona Kahele described her tests of acceptance and initiation that few modern students would even consider. I was privileged to study ho'oponopono with Aunty Mona and lomilomi with her cousin - Aunty Margaret Machado.

Aunty Margaret Machado

Aunty Margaret Machado founded the Hawaii Massage School. From her beach house near Kealakekua Bay, Aunty Margaret Machado attracted students from all over the world ... and I feel fortunate to stand amongst them. (In August 2006, I attended her 90th birthday party there - her body died in 2009).

I slept on Aunty Margaret's lanai (balcony) with the sounds of wind in coconut palms and endless ocean surf. During a busy month I learned her magical lomilomi massage. Martyn Kahekili Carruthers

Aunty Maile Napoleon

Waimea is a town with a split personality. The eastern side is of Waimea is wet - and the western side dry. Right in the middle, Aunty Maile Napoleon teaches the lomilomi of Papa kalua kaiahua and temple style lomilomi and how to use pu'ili sticks.

Aunty Maile is known for her smile and her aloha. She has many skills besides lomi lomi, including la'au lapa'au (herbal medicine) and lava carving; and she is a master lei maker. She has given our students many stories and experiences of Hawaiian Aloha.

Aunty Maile's Kohala grandmother taught Maile to pray out loud (pule) before and after lomi, to lomi with love and that hands are only tools. After studying the huna of Serge King, Aunty Maile learned the lomi of Papa Kalua Kaiahua , a respected master of lomilomi and la'au lapa'au on the island of Maui.

Aunty Maile ("Call me Smiley!") Napoleon has endless stories of the 'old days'. She said that the ruined village of Lapakahi (now an archeological park where Maile once worked) was a medical college for pre-contact Hawaiian healers. (Aunty Maile blames the now-defunct sugar industry for diverting the rivers and streams in that area, causing West Kohala to become arid.)

Lomilomi, used together with la'au lapa'au, ho'oponopono and ho'omanamana, or by itself, can help increase your flexibility, health and vitality.
