ALOHA HAWAIIAN TRADITIONAL TEACHINGS, HO'OPONOPONO, LOMI LOMI MASSAGE TRAINING RETREATS
HAWAIIAN LOMI LOMI MASSAGE TRAINING COURSE TESTIMONIES
I had always wanted to learn massage and was particularly interested in
Hawaiian massage after having had one a few years ago. After searching
online for courses I was drawn to Christina Martin's Lomi Lomi Massage
page, I liked the idea of retreat training by the sea & I felt connected
to the Aloha energy immediately. Training with Christina was a
wonderful, positive transformative experience for me and most definitely
one of the best things I have done in my life.
Christina is genuine, gifted, compassionate and supportive. Her training
is thorough, sacred and of the highest integrity. The course was so much
more than I expected, I felt confident & aligned with all that I needed
to begin massaging clients once the training was completed. I am deeply
grateful for this experience and look forward to more training with
Peace, love & blessings,

I am forever grateful to Christine for sharing her vast knowledge of this sacred healing art. Christine is a very funny, caring and compassionate teacher, always encouraging us to grow from within. Her light-hearted teaching approach allowed me to learn at my own pace and ask many questions. The early sunrise “flying” on the beach was one of my favourite magical moments. The delicious organic vegetarian food was not only delicious but very healing as well. I thoroughly enjoyed the course. Thank you, Christine, for sharing all of it. Blessings.

I very much enjoyed everything that we did. It was good to get up early in the morning and see the sunrise etc. My favourite aside from the massage was the dancing or movement one morning, especially the shaking bit. The teaching was supportive, but firm and not judgmental which was perfect.
The most I got out of the course was learning to be more present again. Think less and do more. The not using technology as much as possible was great and would be something I would encourage future course participants to adhere to.
Since the course when the drama and trauma builds up I just take a few deep breaths and think ‘whatever, it is all just stuff, no big deal’, and then mind my pono.
One week after the course and my wife has enjoyed three ninety minute massages. I love it and just find the whole lomi lomi experience beautiful. thanks for all the effort you have made to create the course and for giving me the chance to participate.

Christina’s workshop was brilliant! My fellow students were patient beautiful people; the accommodation was modern with clean lines and very spacious; the organic vegetarian food was magnificent and worked like a complete detox for me; the meditation and yoga an interesting experience; the free-form dancing rejuvenating and hilarious; and the beach walks, greeting the sunrise and ‘flying’ was more than just a breath of fresh air for me. It was out of the norm but exhilarating!
The Lomi Lomi massage being somewhat different to any other massage I’ve done before, it wasn’t difficult but was quite challenging. Christina was extremely supportive and would demonstrate the techniques but it was up to us to ‘make it our own’. Encourage us to work slowly and intuitively.
Receiving the Lomi Lomi massage is a beautiful and relaxing experience but the giving the massage is quite powerful. I needed to ‘give of myself.’ In order to do this, I found I needed to make peace with myself which in the end, I was able to do. I needed to forgive myself for not being perfect and had to learn to like myself again. I learned how to breathe. It took some work, but with Christina’s help, I got there.
Thank you for enlightening me and helping me to discover all that is good in me and with the universe.
