Traditional Hawaiian healing practices are spiritually based and are used by individuals and families to heal both maʻi kamaʻāina (Hawaiian sickness) and maʻi malahini (post-contact introduced infections and diseases). Although there are many Hawaiian healing modalities, the primary practices most commonly used today are:
- Lomilomi to improve circulation, structural alignment and range of motion, relieve stress and ease tension
- Ho‘oponopono to address conflicts within families and communities
- Lā‘au lapa‘au to use pule (prayer) and Native Hawaiian plant medicine for healing purposes.
Nā Pu‘uwai is honored to support our Kūpuna Council (Native Hawaiian elders). Our traditional healing masters protect Native Hawaiian healing knowledge, history, values, beliefs and spirituality with the mission to maintain the cultural integrity of these practices.
