Lomi’ili’ili (Hawaiian Hot Stone Therapy) March 23-25, 2012 Tuition: $535 Dr. Maka'ala Yates, D.C. and Carol Hart, MAT6285 Lomi‘ili’ili, which literally means “flat stones in motion,” have been used in Hawaii for hundreds of years to treat the many levels of healing necessary to help restore balance in the mind-body-soul. Traditionally, stones were used as an extension of the hands to help the practitioner to better access hard to reach physical restrictions. This intensive training invites you to experience the traditional and ancient Hawaiian art form of hot stone therapy that is specific to the individual’s needs. Each student will learn how to collect stones using proper protocols, how to heat the stones and control the temperature, and how to clean the stones. You will learn the three basic (formats) using hot stones, including "transitions." This training is more than just laying of stones onto the patient; it is specific to the individual’s needs as it focuses on problem solving! The more Mana Lomi® skills you have the more uses for the stones you will have. This workshop will take place from March 23-25, 2012 at the Aloha Lomi Massage Academy (MAE2666) for three full days.

Dr. Maka’ala Yates D.C. developed Mana Lomi after years of studying (since the age of 6) Hawaiian healing concepts with his Hawaiian teachers. For the benefit of the U.S. Patent and Trademark office, Mana Lomi literally translates as “Hawaiian Spiritual Massage.” However, according to the voices of Na Kupuna (Hawaiian Elders – Wisdom Keepers) Mana Lomi could be translated as the ”Life-force of Lomi.” Lomi or Lomilomi describes a concept that involves the movement of energy.
