The lomi lomi massage training is taught primarily by Tom Cochran, a master practitioner and teacher of Sacred Lomi: Hawaiian Temple Bodywork. The four day intensive course is designed to teach the physical techniques of performing a lomi lomi massage as well as the spiritual aspects of the ancient Hawaiian healing practice. The training is fully accredited by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork and offers massage therapists 32 continuing education credits.
The training is open to anyone interested in this sacred practice – you do not have to be a massage therapist to attend. Cathy Ibach, owner of Hawaiian Experience Spa in Scottsdale attended the training with Sacred Lomi on Maui, HI in 2006. Cathy who is not a massage therapist credits the training with being her inspiration to open the popular Scottsdale day spa. “I found the training with Tom and Donna to be transformational. Lomi lomi is an incredible technique and the history and culture surrounding this art inspired my husband and me to open Hawaiian Experience Spa”, says Cathy.
