Lomi Lomi Nui massage and bodywork – Ancsa Zsófia Überhardt and Reka Balogh

Ensuring a free energy flow.

Lomi Lomi Nui (the art of the healing touch) is a sacred Polynesian art form that helps us return to, “the lost paradise”, our original harmonious states. It is a healing massage that originates in Hawaii and is based on ancient, ritual-like motions. Its objective is to enable us to reach a state of physical, mental and spiritual cleansing and healing. Its efficiency in relieving stress and eliminating old body patterns embedded in tension is evident in its use in “transition rituals” – the moment of entering a new life phase. In ancient Hawaii, people would turn to the massage therapist/healer (Kahuna Lapa’au) before entering a new, significant life phase or event to relieve their fears, tensions and egocentric perceptions with help of the massage. A successful massage would uproot and overhaul their old personalities and the life situations created by them. Old patterns were replaced by consciously selected new ones. The treatment links the individual and the divine element, often blocked by fears, old habits and beliefs, but present within each of us.  Lomi Lomi Nui gives us access to our genetic memory, the knowledge previously gathered by our ancestors. It is a path to return to the original harmonious state, access higher information, and find a way back to our soul.

Aloha in Hawaiian means: be happy and share the joy of life with others.

Post Festival Massage Training

Also known as the “temple-style” Lomi, this graceful, in-depth bodywork incorporates hula movements to produce a profound healing effect for the recipient, at the same time energizing the practitioner. In ancient times in Hawaii, it was performed by Kahuna Lapa’au (master lomi practitioners) in the Heiau (temples) for deep physical and spiritual healing.

Health (ola) existed when the body’s cells vibrated at a fast pace or in other words, the body’s energy was free flowing. Illness (ma’i) occured when that flow was blocked or restricted for an extended period. In this style of lomi-lomi (massage), the practitioner is the dancer and the recipient is the choreographer. So the dance is always different, each session is thus an unique improvised duet based on the technique and knowledge of the first and the needs and wishes of the latter. The foundation strokes are taught as a framework, then the principles of attentiveness, love and respect are emphasized, so that the practitioner develops the confidence to trust information coming from the recipient.

Also emphasized are listening to one’s own body as a map for understanding how bodies release blocks. Hence, much of our training time together includes exercises that encourage our own bodies energy to flow freely. So get ready to help yourself as we increase our skills to help others!

In this beginners course we will learn the basics of the massage and the gift of helping others through the power of ‘Aloha’ to find the path back to their centre.
