Training & Workshop Testimonials
(written and video)
The Spiritual Hawaiian Lomilomi Massage course is hands down stunning.
I have been through many courses in my lifetime, and this was one of the best, if not the best.
I was totally impressed by Charlie's deep knowledge, integrity and professionalism
along with a deep connection to the ancient Hawaiian teachings.
If you want to learn Lomilomi this is the course to do.
Charlie's Lomilomi course is an awesome experience so irresistible I've done it two and half times now.
Witnessing and experiencing the vibration of the group rise more and more each day is just magical.
I love to repeat it just for the joy and bliss of being in the sacred space
connecting with the energies and sharing the experience with others.
Charlie brings in light to the space like no one else I've ever seen —
their reverence for the Hawaiian Kupuna/Ancestors allows such intensely loving and supportive guidance for learners.
Even though I'm well trained, I'm a sucker for the joy of this course and will join again.
I need to thank you for being the greatest teacher I have ever had.
You have given me the ability to see things clearly
and make choices that are starting to change my life, slowly, but for the best.
I am forever grateful to you.
Bianca Neuhof — Massage Therapy Student & Lomilomi Practitioner
As a practitioner of Lomilomi Body Work myself, I can highly recommend this course for new and returning students.
You will develop your ability to listen very deeply and simultaneously provide loving presence for your clients.
You will learn a flowing technique for giving touch which will potentially move the client
into a deep relaxation to states of healing at the mental/emotional and Transgenerational levels and,
one which is truly both beautiful to receive and to give.
It is an opportunity to develop as a practitioner by experiencing your own healing
and by being witness to a process of restoration in the client through this method.
Charlie Snow has been teaching (and giving) Lomilomi for over 18 years
with permission from Papa K, respected Hawaiian elder.
They are thus held in very high esteem and recognised for their integrity,
understanding and volition to pass on the teaching in this way
Franca Hanane — Psychotherapist, Lomilomi Practitioner, Process oriented artist (Melbourne)
As part of my practice I wanted to continue reaching out to a wider demographic of people
that would benefit from a relaxing, soothing massage such as Lomilomi.
I found the Pregnancy Workshop led by Charlie Snow to be incredibly informative
from a practical point of view.
There was so much to learn from the instruction throughout the day
as well as through the feedback from the pregnant people receiving.
Each came with their own special package of aches and pains
from the different stages in their pregnancy.
Having done this workshop I have developed
a deeper intuitive understanding and confidence in my daily practice.
Mahalo nui to all the people who were involved and shared their beautiful journey.
Ché Stevenson — Lomilomi practitioner
I have attended Charlie's 5 day Lomilomi training in Melbourne and also experienced a LomiLomi session with Charlie.
I highly recommend Charlie Snow as a practitioner and facilitator of this beautiful modality.
The training is perfect for anyone who is interested in personal growth and spirituality.
Charlie really embodies the spirit of Aloha through the teachings, connection, loving touch & compassion.
I also recommend booking in for a session with Charlie.
Thank you Charlie, for sharing your gifts with the world.
I have had the honour to receive Lomilomi from Charlie Snow for over fourteen years
and then in the last two years to study Lomilomi with Charlie twice.
Since the training, I have had an even more amazing experience to have had two Lomilomis
with two of Charlie's other recent students who are now practicing.
What is so amazing is that, though different from Charlie, the two students practices
have the distinctive earmark of Charlie and, yes, Charlie’s style.
That is the earmark of a great teacher —
to pass over the foundation but liberate the student to achieve their own style.
I expect that I will continue to see them all, though they are not geographically close.
The power of teaching rests in a concept transferred to the hands in practice.
I have found so much more with giving, not just receiving Lomilomi — I now prefer to give.
Today, it is rewarding that a new generation has appeared in Melbourne
and blessed that Charlie has returned to Melbourne.

I attended the 6 day introduction to Lomi lomi earlier this year with Charlie
from the Blisstitute. I had been recommended this course by a friend
but nothing I had been told prepared me for the experience I had.
It was incredible to watch the changes that I and my group went through
over the course of the week.
We learnt so much more than just a massage technique.
Since the course I have been practising lomilomi at a practitioner level
and have received so much positive feedback from clients.
I cannot recommend the Blisstitute highly enough.
