The U.S. Patent and Trademark office translates Mana Lomi literally 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.  With the right understanding and training, the practitioner can communicate through the soft tissues of the body, deep into the bones of the individual.

The concepts of Mana Lomi are vast and complex, yet simple if you understand the mechanisms, principles and intentions behind this revered form of Hawaiian healing.   For example, the concept of “communicating down to the bones” physically and energetically is significant. It gives room for the client to allow the practitioner to go as deep as they can tolerate, yet be non-invasive while achieving the desired outcome.

It is at the bone level that all memory is stored from past traumas, injuries or emotional links. As with many indigenous cultures, the bones are the most important and protected part of the physical structure. It is here that specific codes are stored that make up each individual on a DNA level. Tapping into the bones allows the Mana Lomi practitioner to communicate on a soul level so healing can take place.

The Mana Lomi practitioner uses a multitude of techniques that affect the golgi tendon organ (GTO), muscle spindle fibers, and the pain receptors. For example, in advance techniques, the concept of compression and stretching away from the insertion point is an important skill for immediate and long-term relief.
