Hawaiian Massage Training with Patti Miller


This 4 day course is a good introduction to the different lineages of
Lomilomi Massage that we carry in our halau. In this course, the students
learn a fairly simple, loving and effective massage routine that combines
some of my favorite strokes from the traditional lineages from Maui,
the Big Island and Kauai. 


It has often been said that “Lomilomi is a Praying work”.

The Hawaiian people believe that it is really the prayers that do the healing, much more than the technique or the strokes.  Here we dive into the mystery
of prayer, and discover how the power of prayer can be used to treat a variety of ailments. We also explore the connection to our ancestors, and share in an ancestor Honoring Circle, in which we share the names, stories and heritage
of our own family lineages.  We create an altar and prayers call to our
ancestors for assistance with our lives and our healing.
