“In Hawaii…healers often made use of physical manipulation as an aid to what might be called ‘mental’ healing. This manipulation was called Lomilomi, and was a combination of massage, bathing and deep manipulation-every action accompanied by an action of mind to aid healing and relieve pain.

“If suggestion is given at the time that the vital force is transferred through the hands of the healer, and the massage and manipulations act as a stimulus, the combination is most perfect. Lomilomi at its best included all three of these import_ant elements.”
