Just returned from Heartworks Lomi Lomi training on the Sunshine Coast with Shamanic Bodywork.

Available for Lomi Lomi sessions in Vancouver now (...and other modalities, of course)!

An ancient healing art from Hawaii that is much more than "just another massage". Like the fluid oceanwave, It is a powerful and unique experience in itself that leads you to your natural state of balance.

Here is a bit more info:

Heartworks Lomi Lomi was founded by Hawaiian based Sherman Dudoit.

This is a healing system which brings balance, restoration and heart-opening peace to the body.

When we speak of the body we are also speaking of the energetic body surrounding the physical body. Energy blockages are released allowing spirit, circulation, oxygen and life flow through mind and body. On all levels there is unity.

Lomi Lomi is derived from ancient Polynesian methods of healing, where bodywork/massage was an important part of life, and a preventative of illness as well as dis-ease. It is believed that a treatment could last for hours, sometimes days.

The integrity and skill of the practitioner was of utmost importance, as it is only through pure intent that true healing can take place.

Now in modern times the basic Hawaiian philosophy (Huna) is preserved as well as the sacredness behind this beautiful ritual.

This flowing style of Hawaiian bodywork includes long fluid rhythmic strokes over the whole body with the hands (Here we use the hands as a tool of the heart). This creates a dance like movement which with deep breathing leaves the practitioner in a clear meditative space and the client in a state of peace.

The Heartworks Lomi Lomi method is a form of healing therapy that has its roots firmly planted in the intuitive or spiritual core of bodywork. Using the medium of touch from the heart and inner focus through meditation we can heal ourselves, release the past and embrace the now with an open heart.
