Alice Peebles

Lomilomi Practitioner

Location: Upwey, Dandenong Ranges, Victoria 

Pronouns: she/her

There are opportunities to escape and opportunities to be present with ourselves, our struggles and joys. It is my hope that by receiving Lomilomi massage, people experience what they need to in the moment. Through Hawaiian wisdom and safe, consensual, nurturing touch I wish to give you the opportunity to come more fully into your authentic, autonomous self. Shifts and changes can occur through developing a clear connection to our body and caring touch from another human can help calm ones nervous system, tap into emotions and build capacity for self-regulation. I invite you to experience Lomilomi as an active meditation and a conscious embodied receiving. 

 

Lomilomi massage takes you on a journey. It is illuminating and warm and can be a calm island refuge from the busyness of life.  With long flowing strokes under and over the body, gentle stretches and organic coconut oil, it is relaxing, energising, and deeply profound. 

 

Sessions are 90 minutes on the table with the option of 2 hours upon request. All bodies are welcome.

Charlie Snow

Director/Founder
Senior Lomilomi Practitioner
Lomilomi Trainer

Ho'oponopono Practitioner

Essence Dance Facilitator

Location: Mullumbimby, Byron Bay Shire, NSW

Pronouns: they/them

Charlie is a Wodi Wodi person from the Illawarra area of NSW, which is part of the Dharawal nation.

 

Charlie also identifies as māhū, which is a Hawaiian term for someone who “walks in the middle” of the gender spectrum. Thus Charlie uses the pronouns ‘they/them’ because they do not see themselves as female or male, but rather as somewhere in the middle. This brings a unique perspective and energy to Charlie's work, and enables them to work tangibly with yin and yang energies, or, as some say, the feminine and masculine.

Charlie's intent is to provide opportunities for people to live their own truth — encouraging us all to come into our true individual and collective power with passion, integrity and honesty... to be creators of a world that we actively choose to live in rather than accepting limitations that have been chosen for us.

 

Charlie has been honoured to share Hawaiian Lomilomi massage since 2001, and has worked with thousands of clients for almost two decades. Charlie continues to train with Hawaiian elders in Lomilomi, Ho'oponopono, Aloha and Hawaiian culture, and teaches Lomilomi with permission from Kiliwelu Kamaka Iki Ali'i Pa'akaula Kamoa Kamoa (better known as Papa K).

 

Charlie's teaching style and sessions are deeply nurturing, strong and clear. Charlie works with people of all genders and is able to hold space for people of all different backgrounds and lived experiences.  

 

Dan Frankel

Lomilomi Practitioner 

Location: Fitzroy, Melbourne, Victoria

Pronouns: he/him

 

I believe bodywork helps to restore your connection with yourself, by working on your body's natural rhythm and by providing holistic care with complete client focus for an extended period. 

 

After many years of practice I find that bodywork is beneficial in so many ways, for example: circulation and mobility issues, fascia release, finding a sense of grounding and physical/emotional recalibration, and most importantly, when bodywork is used as a regular health maintenance tool it can assist in preventing dis-harmony from arising.

 

Sessions with me will be a different experience for each person depending on their needs. They can be very active and involve client participation for stretches and tension release or they could also be just intuitive, following the body's tension and using a whole range of techniques from holding, stretching, long flowing strokes and sometimes some gentle breathing guidance.  It really all depends on what the goal of the client is.

 

I am a graduate of The Blisstitute of Living Aloha 2019, Dr Manaka Protocols 2012 (taught by Paul Movsessian) and The Australian Shiatsu College 2010.

Erin Gordon

Lomilomi Practitioner 

Location: Canberra, ACT

Pronouns: she/her

Whether you are in search of release from physical, spiritual or emotional tension, or just craving some much needed relaxation, I can offer you a safe space to feel honoured and nurtured. 

Lomilomi can be deeply healing and transformational. As a practitioner I work with each individual's needs to enable them to get the most out of the session. I use a combination of gentle and firm flowing strokes, stretches and holds to shift blockages and restore. 

 

Through my training in Lomilomi and Reiki I have developed a strong sense of energy flow and I work with this and the Hawaiian spirit of Aloha to bring you back to your centre by realigning your energy and soothing your soul .

 

My aim of sharing bodywork and unconditional love is to inspire all humans to feel cherished and magnificent.

Serra Manawey


Lomilomi Practitioner


Location: Portland, Victoria
Pronouns: She/her

With each session given I am eternally in awe and humbled by the enormity of the energy that flows through this lineage of Lomilomi. The connection to the Kupuna (Elders) and Kahiko Kupuna (Ancient Elders) is palpable when in the Lomilomi space. Coming from a background of energy healing and other forms of spiritual massage I work deeply with energies, and I feel blessed to have received the gift of Lomilomi. There is an ancient Mana (power) beyond what flows through my own personal energy work that comes with this treatment, making it potent and effective.

I received the practice of Lomilomi into my hands in 2019. I have since been cultivating a Lomilomi offering of deep Aloha spirit, with strong Pa'a (grounding) in myself. Lomilomi works deeply on the emotional level, opening and clearing energy channels in the body and creating trust and deep relaxation in the physical body. Many of my clients have expressed having beautiful emotional releases after receiving a Lomilomi, and this is a space I hold with safety and Aloha. 

If you live in or travel to the far South West of Victoria, I can be found in Portland and would be honoured to hold this space and share this treatment with you. If you would like more information or to book a treatment, please contact me on 0447309771
