The Module 2 Workshop builds on the content from Module 1. The focus is on the back of the body. The course provides you with deeper anatomical knowledge, enabling you to perform a Lomilomi full body massage successfully and in the Hawai'i tradition. We will focus on individual muscles, practice specific techniques as well as connection and flow of movements. The workshop will be conducted with a maximum of 16 people. To learn the massage techniques, you will practice on participants; in return, you will get the chance to lie down and experience what the massage feels like.
