Our diploma workshop expands your knowledge for a professional future as a Lomilomi therapist. Prerequisite for participation is a successful completion of all other modules. At the end of the course, you will take a practical and a theoretical exam. External speakers will introduce you to topics such as epigenetics and bias and more. At the end of this workshop, you will receive the AlohaSpirit Lomilomi diploma, and we congratulate you to the title "Certified Lomilomi Therapist AlohaSpirit".

The workshop will be held with a maximum of 14 participants. To learn the massage techniques, you will practice on participants; in return, you will get the chance to lie down and experience how the massage feels.

With the AlohaSpirit Lomilomi diploma in your pocket, you can immediately register with ASCA (Swiss Foundation for Complementary Medicine), SVBM (Swiss Association of Professional Masseurs) and ALH (Association Lomilomi Hawai'i). This is a quality label that is currently only possible with AlohaSpirit.

This foundation training consists of 340 learning hours and must be completed at an external, accredited school.

All our courses meet the requirements of EMR and ASCA. Whether a course is recognized as further education for your registered method, however, is determined exclusively by EMR or ASCA.
