Tom Cochran

In 1991, after spending years studying meditation, Jungian dream work, energy work, yoga, various therapies and shamanism, Tom was introduced to Hawaiian Temple Bodywork. "Lomi Lomi had a profound effect on my life. Without turning back, I moved to Hawaii to study Hawaiian shamanism and Hawaiian Temple Bodywork."

He earned his massage license through the Maui School of Therapeutic Massage and began offering sessions worldwide throughout Japan, Europe, Canada and across the US. In the late 1990’s, Tom was guided and moved to begin sharing this work with other therapists. Since then, he has taught thousands of students, dedicating himself fully to their individual growth as well as supporting them to offer this powerful art to others.

"These ancient teachings remind us of our wholeness, our divinity. It’s an awakening that allows us to know our unique Self, not as a separated individual, but as a connected part of the whole. For me, it is a tremendous gift to travel and share the power and beauty of this work with people all over the world and witness them awakening to themselves on such an intimate, soul level."

"The Lomi room is a sacred space, like a temple. Whether I’m teaching or offering a session, I keep the space very clear, physically and energetically. When we work, we are not trying to do anything except be present. People long to be accepted and recognized and they long to connect and be nurtured in a sacred way, without judgement… in that place of acceptance people awaken, in a unique way to the authenticity of being, of life. There’s a profound sense of peace, love and power in embracing, embodying and trusting your authentic being."
