Aloha is an affectionate greeting and farewell. But it also means love, thankfulness and compassion. This word describes a Hawaiian philosophy of life.
|Ha||Giving life energy (breath)|
|Aloha||Presence of breath|
The breath is holy for Hawaiians, due to its quality of bringing life. Back in the day, greeting somebody meant “exchange of breath”.
The Lomi Lomi practitioner has a harmonious spirit and is in tune with “divine energy”.
This attitude enables the Lomi Lomi practitioner to convey positive energy to the client. Thus, the client can completely relax and is strengthened and balanced afterwards and will integrate this energy into his life.
|A||AKAHAI||being caring and loving|
|L||LOKAHI||being helpful, cooperative and balanced|
|O||OLU'OLU||being pleasant and joyful|
|H||HA'AHA'A||being honorable and worthy|

Aloha means to be a part of everything, being part of everything in creation. This philosophy suggests that human beings, animals and nature should life in harmony with one another. That is the Aloha Spirit!
