This article, written by Kolleen Kohlrus, appeared in the Washington Massage Journal, Spring 2007. I am delighted to have the opportunity to talk about lomilomi or lomi as it's often called. Lomi is the heart-centered Hawai'ian massage modality that has kept my passion alive for 21 years AND kept me from ever experiencing burnout! Lomilomi is one of the great loves of my life, and I am deeply grateful for all my lomi teachers, those born in Hawai'i and those born Hawai'ian in spirit. What I hope to do in this article is to provide a comprehensive description of lomi, including its origins and applications.
