– Mana Lomi Workshops

Mana Lomi® Level 1

Lomi or lomilomi is more than just a Hawaiian massage. It describes a concept that involves the movement of energy or energy in motion. It is the ability to communicate through the soft tissues of the body, physically and energetically, deep within the bones of the individual and thus the soul of the person. Mana Lomi® can be translated as the “Life-force of Lomi”. Authentic Mana Lomi® is based on Hawaiian concepts of working with the body, mind and spirit. It is hands on healing that is deep and powerful, yet gentle, giving immediate and long-term results. This segment will include topics such as clinical procedures of Mana Lomi®, simple meditation, ho’oponopono (alignment of living), the history and timeline of Mana Lomi®, Hawaiian healing chants, and Hale Pulo’ulo’u (Hawaiian House of Purification) on the final day. Mana Lomi® I is suggested for all upper level Mana Lomi® techniques including Level 2 (Advanced Specific Conditions), Lomi’ili’ili, (Hawaiian hot stone therapy), and Level 3 (Joint Mobilization, taught exclusively by Kumu Maka’ala Yates, D.C).

This 27 hour workshop is offered twice per year and provides 27 CEU’s with the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB), please call or email for more information.

Mana Lomi’ili’ili (Hawaiian Hot Stone Therapy)

Lomi‘ili’ili, which literally means “flat stones in motion,” have been used in Hawaii for hundreds of years to treat the many levels of healing necessary to help restore balance in the mind-body-soul.  Traditionally, stones were used as an extension of the hands to help the practitioner to better access hard to reach physical restrictions.  This intensive training invites you to experience the traditional and ancient Hawaiian art form of hot stone therapy that is specific to the individual’s needs. Each student will learn how to collect stones using proper protocols, how to heat the stones and control the temperature, and how to clean the stones.  Upon completion, all students are qualified for 27 units of continuing education under Category A with the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork (NCBTMB).

 


Mana Lomi Level 3 (Joint Mobilization)

This program, taught exclusively by Dr. Maka’ala Yates, D.C., is only available to those that have take ML level 1 and 2 with a qualified instructor under Mana Lomi. This is a four day program and will require some knowledge on boney landmarks such as the SI joints, ASIS and more.  You will learn how to use the bones and joints to affect the plasticity of soft tissues to further enhance the desired outcome of various physical maladies.  Bones are used only as levers to release hard-to-access deep layer muscles to increase therapeutic efficiency and provide patients with long-term pain relief.  Massage therapists can now safely address all soft tissues, including ligaments, discs, fascia, joint capsules and nerve dura responsible for much of the pain believed to be solely from muscles.

We are proud to announce that Kumu Maka’ala Yates will be teaching Mana Lomi Level 3 here on Kaua’i August 11-13, 2017. Call or email for more information!
