MANA LOMI® 2 HAWAIIAN MASSAGE WITH DR. MAKA'ALA YATES- 40 Hours
The Mana Lomi® technique is based on Hawaiian concepts of working with the"mana" of the body, mind, and soul of an individual.
Dr. Maka'ala Yates D.C. developed Mana Lomi after years of studying and practicing Hawaiian healing concepts with his Hawaiian teachers. This is the second level in a series of offerings by Dr. Yates. Advanced protocols will be covered in this workshop.
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.
