Where does Lomi Lomi come from?
Kahu Abraham Kawai’i taught the Lomi Lomi Temple Style from 1981 until his death in 2004 also to non-Hawaiians. Formerly, this form of massage was restricted to priests and was used during initiation rituals. Lomi Lomi Temple Style allows for transformations due to its purifying and strengthening nature. On the physical level, letting go of physical and mental pain is greatly facilitated.
Kahu taught us that the wise people - the kupunas - the indigenous, including Hawaiians, knew a lot about the importance of temple sites (in Hawaiian: heiaus). In many cases, these holy sites were aligned in accordance with certain star and sun patterns.
To those who have received a Lomi Lomi within such heiaus, this massage has made a deep impression and has fostered the willingness for extensive changes in life.
If they allow their long-suppressed inner abilities to unfold, receivers of today may also recognize the Lomi Lomi as an active, healing start of a new, conscious life.
Open up with devotion to this touch and let go! An exclusive and intensive short trip to Hawaii awaits you!
But attention: If you come to Hawaii and ask for Lomi Lomi, you may be faced with some surprises. After all, Lomi Lomi has different names and routines: Hawaiian temple massage, kahuna work (in Old Polynesian also called ‘Romiromi’). Among Maori (native inhabitants of New Zealand), Romiromi, traditional Maori Healing, exists until today.
