The La'au Lapa'au used is based on the teachings of Kahuna Levon Ohai. He was a well sought-after practitioner in Hawaii and also traveled to spread this way of healing to other countries. He taught both native Hawaiian methods and other practices he learned along the way. In the 1800's, the first written records of foreign sailors arriving in Hawaii, described the people as being the healthiest they had ever seen, not only physical but also by their happiness, kindness and love for their gods, nature, each other, and themselves. It was the "aloha" spirit in it's truest form. We want to go back to that style of living.
