This class combines Lomi Lomi Hawaiian Massage with Hot Stone Bodywork.  The lomi portion of class teaches the ancient temple style with strokes from heel to head and back.   Class consists of a brief history lesson about Hawaii and lomi practice, plus a quick review of Ahupua’a, Ho'oponopono, chanting and the Hawaiian heiau.  

We will use bolsters, the face cradle and top/bottom sheets (draping is with full sheets instead of a towel).  Students should be comfortable fully undressing for practice.  Genitalia and breast tissue are covered with draping at all times; however, in prone position, 1/2 the body is exposed from head to heel for long body stroking (no gluteal cleveage or genitalia are exposed). 

The lomi strokes that will be demonstrated in this basics class include:

  • Prone: Short & Long Back Strokes
  • Prone: Hand & Forearm Strokes Heel to Head (and back)
  • Prone: Sole of Foot Forearm Stroking
