Lomi Lomi Scholarship

April 4-15, 2018 on Hood Canal in Brinnon, WA

This full tuition scholarship will be awarded to a massage therapist or massage school student who contributes to community using massage in a special way.

Applications accepted until December 1, 2017.

Spend 12 days living in harmony with nature, spirit, and diverse people, while experiencing a lomilomi healing massage approach.  This in-depth, expansive program includes massage instruction, time in nature, Hawaiian dance, handicrafts, meditations, song, ceremony, ho’oponopono (forgiving, setting things right, moving forward),  and more, all while living together in a beautiful waterfront home on Hood Canal in Washington State.

Participants will learn a full body lomilomi massage protocol as well as specific treatment work for complaints including joint sprains and strains, joint replacement, arthritis, whiplash, headaches, carpal tunnel, sciatic, and more.


Massage students and therapists with all levels of experience are welcome.

Barbara Helynn teaches massage therapists ways to work that are easy on the therapist’s body, minimizing stress on wrists, elbows, hips and backs.   The clinically focused, spiritually grounded lomilomi she teaches is problem-solving work which helps resolve injury, and also feels wonderful to receive. The body is approached as a clearly interrelated whole; what occurs in one part of the body affects all parts of the body.   Awareness Massage Lomilomi incorporates concepts of Hawaiian spirituality, meditation techniques, and indigenous values.
