Let the continuous, flowing movements bring deep relaxation and balance to your entire being; giving your energy new direction.

This healing bodywork embraces total well-being. It incorporates ceremony and the welcoming spirit of Hawai’i (Aloha!) with caring massage, music, and breathwork to assist you in deepening your connection to your inner self and celebrate the magnificence of your humanness.

Based in Kahuna (medicine healing) lineage of Hawai’i, Lomi Lomi embodies multi-leveled healing energy from the outside in. It works with the idea that we are more than our physical bodies. That our bodies are actually pure energy and hold the answers we need for healing in our lives in our magnetic field, bones, and cells.
It lightens up your energy body and touches your spirit so you remember who you are, and align with that wisdom to give you guidance and energy for life.

Lomi Lomi refreshes your spirit with love, connection, and the caring we all crave.
It is truly transformational!
Weave out the old, and weave in the new!

Lisa Kai performs a full ceremonial Temple style Lomi Lomi session. She brings her presence, heartfelt Aloha spirit, and intention to the table while incorporating traditional Hawai’ian chants, breathwork, humming, and ceremony throughout to make it a complete experience for you. ,


*** HOT TIP - One of the luxuries of this massage is is the thought of it's geographical origins. Think of Lomi Lomi as your own little piece of Hawaii. Imagine yourself in a treatment room next to miles of sandy beaches, palm trees, a warm breeze, and the sound of the ocean. Let it work its magic. ***

 Brief History of Lomi Lomi

Originally known as Ka’ ala Hoku - massage journey to the stars - this ancient healing modality from Hawai’i is a shamanic form of ancient Hawai'ian bodywork based in spiritual traditions of Hawai'i. It has been passed down for generations through Kumus (teachers) verbally.
The Elders of Hawai’i believed in a strong body, mind, spirit connection. There was no separation between the physical and energetic; muscle tension, unresolved emotions/decisions, and illness were highly related. Everything was interconnected.
In ancient times, Lomi Lomi was often performed in a temple space (heiau) as a rite of passage and renewing ritual. Once inside the Temple, there would often be drummers, chanters and the Kahuna. The ceremony could last from 10 hours to 10 days. (24 hours a day) The Kahuna would start the bodywork “dance” and use her/his entire being to weave muscle, bone, sound, movement, breath, and light into the person.
Through the Lomi ritual, the recipient would have a vision or intuitive guidance as to what their place in the community would be. What contributions they would make as an expression of who they are that felt intentional and purposeful for them.

 Lomi Lomi in Modern Times

Today, traditional practitioners still recognize and honor the sacredness of this ceremony, incorporating ancient rituals into the session itself. The session takes place in a warm (80- 85*), comfortable, safe room. Music is an integral part of Lomi Lomi, using different rhythms and tempos which allow you to deeply relax and let go while assisting me in connecting to, and working with, your unique energy vibration.

Although no longer used as a ritual rite of passage, Lomi Lomi is usually used for connecting to your inner self, transformation, and personal growth. It works as a renewing ritual; bringing you out of ordinary time, into a safe space, to celebrate your being and cultivate alignment between your physical, energetic, and spiritual bodies (Pono). Performed with the essence of Aloha -  love, care, connection, and total acceptance -  you are able to completely give in to the moment, and even let go of anything that is no longer serving you.

Unlike traditional Swedish massage, there is no focus or set format. Lomi Lomi is performed on your entire body at once. I use my soft forearm to run strokes continuously through the body incorporating breathwork, energy work, and movements with circles and figure eights. The movements are designed to confuse the thinking mind, inviting you to let go of thoughts and connect with your inner self, while deeply integrating your body, mind, and spirit.

It can also help with physical (acute and chronic) problems when other types of bodywork aren't proving effective, as you may be holding a pattern within your mind, or cells, that is stopping your healing process.

Sometimes, it IS esoteric sounding. After all, it is bodywork created by the Kahuna of Hawai'i. It’s an experience #4TheWholeYou.

I’m looking forward to connecting with you on the table.
Big Love to you!

At the core of Lomi Lomi, I work with Seven Hawai'ian Spiritual Principles to bring a clearer, non-judgemental understanding to you as a whole person; also integrating the emotional and spiritual aspects of life into a session.
That is what makes us whole, right? Body, Mind, Emotions, AND Spirit.
These principles have become a practice and a way of conscious living for me. By incorporating these qualities I feel I bring a deeper authenticity and integrity to your session so that you have a more powerful, integrated healing experience..

Aloha - the breath of God is in our presence
Ike - The World is what you think it is
Manawa - Now is the moment of power
Makia - Energy flows where attention goes
Mana - All power comes from within
Kala - There are no limits
Pono - Effectiveness is the measure of truth/To be in right relationship with/just


Mahalo Nui to the Hawai'ian's for graciously sharing their values so openly.
