Lomi Lomi Massage
Hawaiian Healing Arts

 

 

Massage Magazine articleHawaiian Healing Arts was created to continue the mission of native Hawaiian healer and master teacher Auntie Margaret Machado. In 1972 Auntie began teaching Lomi Lomi, a Hawaiian massage tradition that was formerly taught only within the Hawaiian family. One of her first three students was Tamara Conlan Mondragon, who apprenticed with Auntie Margaret at her home in Captain Cook, Hawaii. There was no formal school then, and Tamara feels honored to have received such pure knowledge directly from the source, and privileged to offer it in workshops. Licensed since 1974, Tamara has shared Lomi Lomi with many friends and clients, including the Oakland Raiders football team when they were in L.A. She has also authored a cover story for Massage Magazine and co-created three instructional DVD's.

Lomi Lomi combines the use of prayer (pule), breath (ha), and energy (mana) with a variety of massage strokes to release "blocked" areas of tension in the body. Lomi Lomi improves physical and athletic performance through the rhythmic application of thumbs, knuckles, forearms & elbows.

Lomi Lomi relaxes the nervous system, increases circulation and creates a tangible sense of well being. It is useful for maintaining health, and relieving pain from injury and debilitating illness. It is the "dance of massage," and is as wonderful to give as to receive. Auntie Margaret's mission was to spread the healing touch of Lomi Lomi around the world, and Tamara Mondragon has done her best to help fullfill that mission.

 

Auntie Margaret passed away on December 28th, 2010, at home with her ohana. She will always remain alive in the hearts of all who knew and loved her.
