This class combines 6 hours Lomi Lomi Hawaiian Massage with 6 hours of Hot Stone Bodywork. 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 Ahupua’a, Ho'oponopono, chanting and the Hawaiian heiau.
We will use bolsters, the face cradle and top/bottom sheets (draping is with full sheets instead of a towel). Students should be comfortable fully undressing for practice. 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

- Stone Classifications
Additional Instructor Demonstrations are included and students will practice long Lomi Lomi ancient temple style bodywork with hot stone for a full body lava lomi appointment session.

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.
Selena will be returning to the Hawaiian Islands for another month in the Fall of 2019 to continue her Hawaiian healing and cultural training. 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.
