Students MUST purchase/register on this website page to receive the $125 FL Renewal Package. Please do not purchase classes from different website pages and then try to switch to this package. Requests to separate or switch classes in this massively discounted package cannot be provided.
Our ability to provide extensive administrative support for these massively discounted packages is limited, and further compounded by labor shortages. Please make every effort to complete your training early and on-time, before it expires. Please do not wait until the last few days or hours of your training to seek support if you experience any issues or need assistance with your training.
Please email us at info@CeInstitute.com if you have questions or require assistance. We cannot provide immediate simultaneous home study assistance while our school is teaching live webinars, so please allow 24-48 business hours for a response to email. Please do not send multiple emails for the same question because this delays a timely response for all.
You will receive an email link to start your online home study courses within a couple minutes of your purchase/registration. Please check your spam if you do not see this email in your inbox within 5 minutes of your order. Please be sure to check the email address that was used to place your order at registration, and immediately contact us if you do not receive it so that we can resend your login info.
Please watch the tutorial at the beginning of your home study training. It will instruct how to download your student files and companion training materials for your home study training, plus how to download and print your CE certificate. CE hours are usually reported to CE Broker within 1-week of your total package completion, and no more than 1-month after you have completed your entire 24 CE training package. Students must complete this entire 24 CE package to receive CE credit (which includes passing all quizzes and completing the course survey before it expires). Students can take the quizzes as many times as they need to until they pass, or their course access expires. Partial CE credit is not provided for any reason. Thank you.
Your hands-on CE class combines 6 hours Lomi Lomi Hawaiian Massage with 6 hours of Hot Stone Bodywork Massage. The lomi portion of class teaches the ancient temple style with strokes from heel to head and back. Class consists of a brief history lesson about Hawaii and lomi practice, plus a quick review of Hawaiian Principles and the Hawaiian heiau.
We will use bolsters, the face cradle and top/bottom sheets (draping is with full sheets instead of a towel). Genitalia and breast tissue are covered with draping at all times; however, in prone position, 1/2 the body is exposed from head to heel for long body stroking (no gluteal cleveage or genitalia are exposed).
The lomi strokes that will be demonstrated in this basics class include:
- Prone: Short & Long Back Strokes
- Prone: Hand & Forearm Strokes Heel to Head (and back)
- Prone: Heel to Wrist Stroking (and back)
- Additional lomi strokes as time permits during our 6 hours of lomi - and throughout the stone massage practical
In the 6 hours of Hot Stone Massage, students will learn:
- Therapeutic Effects
- Stone Materials
- Stone Classifications
- A hands-on full body Lomi Massage™
Additional Instructor Demonstrations are included and students can practice long Lomi Lomi ancient temple style bodywork strokes with their own model during this course.
This Lomi massage class was written and is taught by CE Institute LLC Founder, Selena Belisle. Selena has been practicing massage therapy for 30 years. She started with sports massage in 1989, and later sought formal “full body” massage therapy training in a 1,000+ hour program at the Massage Institute of New England in Cambridge, Massachusetts. It was at the Massage Institute in 1995 where Selena met and trained with a student of Kahuna Abraham Kawai`i. Selena’s instructor (Christine), taught Selena her first strokes in Ancient Temple Style Lomi Massage and other authentic Hawaiian cultural practices. Selena was drawn into Hawaiian history and healing practices when she learned about the ahupua'a system in the 1990s. Selena’s practice/study of Ancient Temple Style Lomi Lomi Massage and Hawaiian culture/history spans 25 years. She has trained and practiced in both Ancient Temple Style and Auntie Margaret/Big Island style Lomi Massage.
In more recent years, Selena completed an intensive week-long Lomi Lomi workshop by Harry Uhuane & Sila Jim in: Creating Space, Bone Washing, Po'o, Lomi HA, Kala'e, and Laulima. The course was created and taught by Halau Uhane Lomilomi Lapa'au, School for Sacred Soul Teaching and Healing through Native Hawaiian Culture Traditions in 2018. In 2017, Selena studied Lomi Massage in Maui and Big Island Hawaii. This included a month-long trip to multiple heiaus, a sacred-sites tour by a native Hawaiian Lomi Brother, another 3-day Lomi Massage course in Pahoa from Kalani Honua Inc., working with half a dozen other native lomi massage practitioners, participating in several different special Hawaiian practices amongst the Hawaiian people and visiting even more ancient and revered Hawaiian places and settings. Selena has also completed the Sacred Lomi Hawaiian Temple Bodywork workshop and several more lomi massage trainings with other various Lomi “instructors” – some being authentic - and some not.
This includes her geology studies of volcanic basalt and minerals plus her aromatherapy studies of indigenous Hawaiian plants – many of which are (or were) used for medicinal purposes. Selena invites her lomi students to join her Hawaiian trips and explorations, as means to spread the word of our Hawaiian culture. Selena’s experience with true Hawaiians is that they are a giving people who want to share their heritage (so that it is not lost) – which is what Selena achieves amongst her students in her authentic lomi massage classes.
