About Mana Lomi

The style of massage that sets the basis of all the work we do at Aloha Integrative Massage is Mana Lomi (prnounced ma-na like "mama" and "low" "me"). This is a solid description as set forth by my teacher and friend, Dr. Maka'ala Yates.

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. 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 Mana Lomi technique is based on Hawaiian concepts of working with the"mana" of the body, mind, and soul of an individual. In the old days, each village in each district, on each island had their own lomi specialist that the villagers relied upon and trusted. Although lomilomi was a common treatment shared among family members for minor aches and pains, it was the village lomi specialist that treated the more complex problems.Traditionally, the training to become a lomi practitioner could take years. The new student would not be allowed to touch a client, possibly for years, depending on his or her ability to grasp the many concepts of lomi. The student's ability to be pono (conflict-free) with himself/herself and to a person, place or thing was also a determining factor.

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.

When defining lomi lomi, there are various perceptions, approaches, and techniques. This can be attributed to the "time line" or reference points in the events of Hawaii's history. For example, Pa'ao, a Tahitian chief and warrior, came to the Hawaiian Islands in about 400 AD and forced a class system and belief system upon the peaceful inhabitants; later, in the 1800's, the defacto government (the illegal overthrow of the Hawaiian kingdom) of Hawaii further forced the original natives not to practice "sorcery," which included lomilomi. Both of these events and many others like this, attempted to suppress and change the attitudes and beliefs of the now deluded traditional people of Hawaii.

Fortunately, the secrets of lomilomi persevered through the ages and are now starting to resurface.
