Lomi Lomi is a sacred restorative Hawaiian massage that works gently, yet deeply into the muscles with continuous, flowing strokes.
Touch, rhythm and ancient wisdom come together, allowing healing to occur. The long, constant strokes are designed to help the body let go of its old patterns and behaviours, which can cause as many stresses and strains as muscle tension.
Through its rhythm and pattern’s, it activates meridians, energy points, releases energetic blocks and allows the body’s own healing processes to take over.
“Old Style” combines almost endless technique, with “the laying on of hands”, both in passive mode and active massage of Lomi Lomi. Always with the open hand, rhythm is paramount and ultimately hypnotic, which acts to bring the mind to a place of absolute stillness. This “sanctuary” of the quiet mind is where true healing manifests. It is important to note that this state of “stillness” is experienced during treatment by both therapist and recipient. The goal of this method is to enable the practitioner to work from an understanding, that he or she is merely an instrument, through which life force or Mana is allowed to flow and channel into the recipient.

I feel beyond blessed to have learned directly from Kumu (teacher) Dawn Charlton who has been ritually passed the ancient and traditional lineage teachings directly from a Hawaiian master through serving a one-on-one apprenticeship. This knowledge was learnt in the strictest, purest form directly from Dawn’s ‘Kahu’ Sherman Dudoit.
Dawn Charlton is the first non-Hawaiian to have had this honour bestowed upon her. She has been given the responsibility of the lineage to carry and to share this particular style of Lomi Lomi through various levels of training.
