Thanks for your comment about the World Massage Festival.  I had not heard of that until now for some reason!  I looked up their website but there was not much information about it.  What do you know about it and have you been before?  It sounds wonderful!

Aloha Barbara,

I've had little success commenting on this website...some sort of computer glitch...perhaps my co-worker Chelsea Tau'a can help with that. You might know her as she also has been trained by Maka'ala and teaches his style (besides being an IT person). I'll write more if I can actually send this e-mail ;) Blessings, Wiebke

Hi Barbara, I love to take classes and learn new things from others. I have already taken a number of classes this year though and have exhausted my training budget for right now. I did add your site to my favorites page so I can keep it in mind when I am ready to sign up. If business picks up enough at the end of summer, I might sign up.

Hello Barbara, Thanks for the hello and the information on the class schedule from your site. An associate of mine convinced me to take a class in Lomi Lomi Hot Stones with her. I had mentioned I would like to add hot stones to my training and she found Carrie Rowell was offering a Hawaiian Hot stones class (as well other LomiLomi classes and retreats). In preparing for the class I decided to find a therapist offering LomiLomi and have a treatment myself. It was wonderful. I felt wonderful for days. I really enjoyed the class as well and am really looking forward to learning more. I'll watch for your classes. Carrie was a fabulous teacher, but I find it is beneficial to take classes from different people as well because everyone has different experiences and perspectives to share.

I have not taken a class on Lomi Lomi but I plan to one day. I think that it is a beautiful form of massage.
