Five Pillars of Hawaiian Healing

5 pillars of hawaiian healing

The ancient practice of Hawaiian healing includes the physical body AND the mental, spiritual and emotional bodies, too. Today we, as practitioners, need to be aware of how all of these work together for optimum wellness.

Lomi Lomi Hawaiian massage uses many tools in our work with clients. We use our hands as we work on the physical body. Vibration and intention are some other tools available to increase the possibility and potential for healing.

Connecting into the spiritual realm gives access to an abundance of energy. Therefore, we don’t have to work so hard as therapists. This is the key to understanding the difference between just massaging a client and holding a sacred space for them.

When we hold sacred space for others, we stand in sacred space on the journey for ourselves as well. 

In this place, we avoid the spiritual and emotional burnout that commonly occurs for those of us in the healing professions.

If you find yourself taking on unwanted energies when you are working on the body, Hawaiian healing offers a solution. Ho’oponopono, being in alignment with yourself, with other and with the divine is a practice of balance and awareness. Learn to call in the support and protection that is available to you at all times.

Lomi Lomi is specific, therapeutic, and powerful bodywork to address injury. Traditional massage therapy will work at the physical level. But if you want to find true healing and not just a temporary fix, you may need another level of understanding.

The Kahuna of old were masters of working with the unseen realm.

We also have the ability to look deeper to find the source of the problem. We just have to practice being open to that level of perspective.

It isn’t always about what is seen at the surface. When you are willing to connect with someone on a deeper level, you are able to uncover underlying causes of injury and illness.

Hawaiian Healing consists of 5 Pillars:

  1. Aloha Spirit
  2. Healing chants and prayers
  3. Lomi Lomi
  4. Ho’oponopono
  5. Hawaiian plant medicine

When you combine these powerful pillars, you gain access to ancient Wisdom. You don’t have to expend so much effort in your work, and you don’t have to walk this journey alone.

You have divine access to more energetic power and support than you know, facilitating healing on ALL levels for you and your clients.

If you want to do more than just push through to the end of a session. If you want to make a HUGE shift in the way you do your bodywork that leaves you refreshed and energized at the end of the day…

You’ve got to take responsibility to create connection and radiate the divinity of Aloha into everything you do. You have the opportunity be a part of and a witness people’s transformation happening right before your eyes.

So, welcome to Ho’omana Lomi Lomi Training!

    My dream healing center would allow traveling healing artist to practice when available, with a practical code of ethics to follow. We would open our doors to allow locals who may not be able to afford to be able to trade for services with local goods, as in products, produce, or other services. We will have a fully functioning plant nursery, as well as a juice bar offering fresh, in season treats. There will also be workshops for travelers and locals alike to share knowledge of plant medicine, eco building, art, music and any other community activities. This will be a healing and community art co-op, to enliven everyone, all ages, status and interests.

    1. I love it and then I have one piece of advise for your manifesting. State all this again but shift the wording from last to present tense because if you dream it. It exists. Example: My dream healing center allows traveling healing artists to practice. We open our doors to locals to be able to trade local produce products or services for services. We have a fully functioning plant nursery and juice bar. There are workshops for travellers and locals to share knowledge. This is a helping and art coop to enliven everyone. Try it out, it works!!

  4. Aloha! My dream business looks like a room/ small shop– by the ocean with lots of turtle carvings or pictures. Hawaiian kukui oils, sage and plants, anything sacred peaceful. Also sometimes massaging by the ocean, the clients leave feeling the authentic aloha spirit of love & peace. Holding space for them –they leave refreshed and rejuvenated w a vibrant light !

  5. Hi,

    My practice looks like all walk of life coming to me to help them heal!
    I want to get the word out that massages are for everyone not just woman.
    Massage benefits everyone!

  6. 1. I want to be busy”doing massage” everyday. 4-6 a day during the work week. To habe a warm welcoming place for my clients. I am older and do not want to ware out my already worn elbows. Lots of natural light and palm trees. 2. I have a small clientel here in Michigan. My clients leave my table feeling refreshed, relaxed some ready for the day others for a nap. 3. At the end of a full day I feel…”full” after I work on a client and they say…”wow” that was awesome, i feel proud, grateful, acomplished. My lomi lomi training is limited and the only chant I know is “e ho mai” i chant almost every time before a massage and i fly before and after. I find this to energize and relax me.

    1. Aloha Judi, it sounds like you are really making a difference for your clients. Keep chanting and sharing your healing touch. I think it is a great idea to be just as specific as you are down to the number of clients, how you want to feel after giving massage etc. Happy Manifesting!!!
