Lomi Lomi massage is a unique form of bodywork with roots in the traditions of the ancient Polynesians and master healers of Hawaii. To promote relaxation, the practitioner might massage two different parts of the body simultaneously, such as the left arm and the right hip. Because the brain cannot focus on these two opposite areas at once, this method helps the client achieve a deep sense of balance and harmony. Programs for Lomi Lomi massage training will vary somewhat based on the school and the philosophy of the teacher. Course work for Lomi Lomi massage training typically involves the following:. Depending on the program, Lomi Lomi massage training can take a minimum of two days, usually in a workshop setting. Some workshops run longer and many provide advanced-level Lomi Lomi massage training, as well as the opportunity to learn other forms of Hawaiian massage and traditions. Lomi Lomi massage practice does not have its own requirements for licensure.
