AlohaSpirit – Center for Hawaiian Bodywork and Culture
A visit to AlohaSpirit is like a journey to Hawai'i and back. We bring you closer to the medicine, culture and life philosophy of the islands. At our center, you can book a Hawaiian Lomilomi massage or become a Lomilomi therapist through our training program. As a dancer in our hula group, you can experience the stories of Hawai'i. What’s more, you can learn how to do the "right thing" in every situation during a workshop with our Hawaiian teacher Kumu Keala Ching.
Additionally, as you visit, you will begin to perceive what makes the Pacific Islands so special. It is the unique philosophy of life. It recognizes us humans as holistic beings, consisting of body, mind and consciousness. In turn, these beings see themselves as part of their holistic environment, that is, part of nature, part of creation and part of the universe. One with themselves and their environment, these people have the ability to integrate themselves into the big community with others in a special way. They recognize that we all belong together and form one big 'Ohana - Hawaiian for family. Compassion, love, gratitude, and the connection of the self with the big whole are the essence of their being. They live the "Aloha Spirit."
We at AlohaSpirit live this philosophy, and we are happy to share it with you.
