SALT WATER HEALING. For Native Hawaiians, the ocean played an important role as it was used for physical and spiritual sustenance in their everyday lives. One bereaved couple shared how a regular dip in the ocean helped wash away emotional grief after their child's death. 

  • Swimming in the sea gives you a full body workout, improves circulation, and increases your immune system function. Studies have shown that the vitamins, minerals, and amino acids in seawater produce antibiotic and antibacterial effects that promote immunity. Oct 20, 2014
  • The sound of the sea is therapeutic. According to William Dorfman, a psychology professor at Nova Southeastern University, the white noise of waves breaking on the rocks relaxes our brains and stimulates the production of feel-good chemicals in our body, including serotonin and dopamine.
  • By walking barefoot on the sand we create a good connection with the Earth and its roots. Grounding energy. Also, feet have many nerve endings: that’s why long walks on the beach have beneficial effects not only on them but on the whole body.
  • According to a study conducted by the University of British Columbia, the colour of the ocean and the sky, which are associated to open spaces and wide horizons, inspires tranquillity and quietness.

Nā Kama Kai is a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering youth by creating, conducting and supporting ocean-based programs, specifically targeting ocean safety and conservation awareness in order to increase the capacity of youth in the community through Hawaiian values, culture and environmental education.

Ocean clinics offer group and one-on-one interactions with professional surfers, watermen and waterwomen, lifeguards, firefighters, marine scientists, Hawaiian cultural practitioners, and ocean rescue instructors. The clinics provide a positive, nurturing, and controlled environment enabling keiki to become confident in the ocean through a personally guided experience. Participants learn Hawaiian stories related to the event location, help shape traditional wooden boards, and learn about traditional Hawaiian ocean culture through the contemporary perspective of ocean professionals. Nā Kama Kai programs target all youth from 2 to 18 years of age in many different cultural settings.
