Why Choose Lomi Lomi Massage?
Lomi Lomi (which literally translates as ‘kneading’ or ‘massage’) is a transformational healing system which has been handed down through generations of Hawaiian families. It uses a combination of dynamic massage techniques to nurture, restore energy and soothe the body. The massage works gently yet deeply into the muscles with continuous, rhythmic, flowing strokes, allowing the recipient to relax completely and bring about a sense of balance & harmony.
Lomi Lomi is traditionally carried out on the beaches of the Polynesian Islands and the movements are performed like flowing waves up and down the body. Different areas of the body are often massaged simultaneously to stop your brain from focusing on any one area and allowing the mind to switch off completely. It is in these relaxed states that your body can let go of its old patterns and stresses, enabling deeper healing to follow.
The therapist will work intuitively with your body, there is no set format for the massage itself, so no two Hawaiian massages are the same. The treatment may be relaxing or invigorating, depending on how your body responds.
Your therapist may lightly stretch your limbs, carefully rotate your joints or carry out under-body strokes. These techniques are thought to free up your energy flow, and will be performed within your comfort zone and level of resistance.
