Aunty Margaret Machado (1916-2010)
is a Hawaiian kahuna. She introduced
Hawaiian Lomi Lomi massage techniques to the world, and is considered by many as the queen of Hawaiian Lomi Lomi.
Although not the only Hawaiian kahuna
practicing and teaching Lomi Lomi, she
was the first to make this ancient
technique available to the rest of the world.
She did so as a representative of the
Hawaiian people in order to reveal their way of life to the world so that it would be appreciated and perpetuated.
