Keone will be teaching the sacred art of Hawaiian Lomi Lomi massage and Huna wisdom on April 26th to 30th, 2021.
Keone was trained in Temple Style Lomi Lomi on Maui, Hawai'i with a professional practice for over 10 years. The name Keone was bestowed on him by Hawaiian elders for his service to the Hawai'i community. Student testimonials for his course are below.
A free introductory Lomi Lomi massage class will be offered a few days before the training at Orion Healing Center.
Lomi Lomi massage is an ancient Polynesian bodywork practice and an indigenous Hawaiian medicine. Hawaiian Lomi Lomi massage includes practical technique and also prayer or intention, breathwork and energy work to heal both the physical and emotional body. It is a profound practice and known as the "loving hands" massage.
Lomi Lomi includes learning the shamanic system of Huna - sacred knowledge that everything seeks harmony and love. Understanding and applying the Seven Principles of Huna integrates the mind, body and spirit.
The Lomi Lomi therapist focuses on the client with loving hands and a loving heart. Nut-based oils are used to work gently yet deeply into the muscles with continuous, flowing strokes. The free flow of energy around the body supports a physical, emotional and spiritual healing. The entire body is relaxed and assisted to let go of old beliefs and patterns stored in the cells.
You will learn a unique full body massage style that appears like a beautiful dance, with origins in Hawaiian Hula, using special movements of the palms and forearms. The therapist uses intuitive movement, breathing and focused intention in long, flowing strokes up, down, under and over the body. The fluid, rhythmic massage motions are described as gentle waves moving over the body. Most clients state that Lomi Lomi is the best massage they have ever experienced.
The Hawaiian Sacred Arts Massage Training (Level 1) will cover:
- Lomi Lomi massage technique for the whole body
- Basic anatomy and physiology

I attended the 1 day lomi lomi training with Keone and it was the most magical experience! Keone is such an insightful and caring teacher, making sure that everyone is comfortable at all times. The way he creates a playful yet focused learning environment is so special and makes it such a blissful experience to be a part of. When we started massaging he made sure that we knew the structural parts and correct techniques but also encouraged us to tap into intuitive movement which i absolutely loved. Keone is such a beautiful teacher and purely radiates the spirit of aloha, so grateful for the experience 🙏
Keone is an incredible teacher and I learned much more than just how to give a great massage during the Lomi Lomi level 1 training course. Lomi Lomi is an ancient healing art that goes much deeper than just the massage strokes. I feel enriched by the knowledge gained during the course and inspired to share it with loved ones and clients moving forward.
The course itself was so beautiful and I felt I had such a deep experience that went beyond any expectations I could have had about the course. Keone embodied the Aloha spirit and I was so deeply touched by the way he cared for each person, for the way he guided the class to be such a nurturing space, and the wisdom he shared. Truly his teachings can not be under valued because of the way that he cared for each person and brought the best out of them.
I have been blessed to attend Keone’s 5 days LEVEL 1 Lomi Lomi Massage workshop which proved to be, beyond the integration of a beautiful practice, an incredible self discovery journey. On a personal level, learning has always been a very difficult process. The group's dynamic created by Keone, the spirituality infused in every moment of the workshop in high resonance with the Aloha spirit, the hand’s on parts of the training with Keone's gentle and understanding yet skilled and experienced guidance, the introduction to priceless support tools for self and customer grounding and energy restoration, all have contributed to make this moment an unforgettable and, as far I am concerned, life changing experience. Keone is a wonderful teacher and person who is one with the spirit of Aloha!
I did do The lomi lomi level 1 session training with Keone. It was a pleasure to be initiated to the Hawaiian vision of life and spirituality. Keone explains and shares the knowledge with passion. He’s very attentive to all and gives to everyone the space to express questions or impressions. About the massage technics, we learn a real protocole but also how to be free of it and become more creative. How to incorporate also what we already know. Lomi Lomi is for me another way of caring on different level not only based on the physical aspect. It’s why learn it, open a very interesting way to explore cause with it you will not only help a body but a human being with those three different levels physic, mental and spiritual. There is so many things to talk about the best is to try ! Thanks Keone for all your attention and your open mind and heart. Aloha!
Attending the massage course with Keone was a self-awareness journey on top of everything we learned about the Hawaiian massage. He made me realize that giving a massage is not all about the technique, but there is also a big energy exchange through the touch. Before each practice we always had a preparation that included Qi-gong and various forms of meditation. Giving this massage turned out to be as beneficial for the receiver as for me as the giver. There is something even "magical" about it through the breathing and the movements, it's like a dance.
I definitely recommend it, even if the goal is not to become a professional. helped me feel more connected to myself, to nature and to other.
Besides, Keone is a wonderful human being.
