I fell in love with Hawaiian massage in 2000 when I met Anthea Hardwick in South Africa, with whom I apprenticed for several years. I went on to complete my Teacher Training in Lomi Lomi Nui in 2004 with Susan Floyd in Hawai’i, in the lineage of Papa Abraham Kawai’s Lomi Lomi Nui (also known as “temple-style” or kahuna massage). After several years teaching in South Africa & Ireland, my journey took me to Maui to complete Ho’omana’s Fundamental, Advanced & Mastership training with Jeana Iwalani Naluai.
Through my own spiritual search, I have found ancient bodywork to be a profound healer. Teaching yoga has also deepened my understanding of breath, body & energetic alignment.
My intention is to be an introduction or a stepping stone for those interested in Hawaiian Lomi Lomi Massage, to be an ambassador of the Aloha Spirit & to help spread the seeds of this wonderful healing art.
I live in “Aloha House”, Killorglin, County Kerry, Ireland with my husband & 2 beautiful children. Here, we endeavour to create a healing space for our community & beyond.
