Hawaiian Lomi Lomi Massage
Lomi Lomi, which means 'rub' or 'massage' in Hawaiian, is a traditional Hawaiian massage technique used to bring about physical and mental relaxation.
According to the Hawaiian philosophy called Huna, the mind and the body are constantly linked together and good health depends on having both of them in a harmonious balance.
Benefits of Lomi Lomi Massage
Lomi Lomi works gently yet deeply into the muscles with continuous, flowing strokes, enabling you to relax, give in and simply be! One part of the massage is the technique, but the other maybe even more important part is that this massage is done by love, using loving hands and a loving heart, concentrating fully on the client being deep and complete. In this way physical and mental blockages are removed.
‘Hawaiian Massage’ also has the following benefits:
- Relieves body pain and stiff muscles
- Helps to eliminate toxic waste
- Relaxes nervous system, improves sleep
- Improves blood circulation and lymph flow
- Enhances concentration
- Increases overall sense of calmness, well-being and happiness
What to expect during Lomi Lomi Massage:
A treatment will last between 60 to 90 minutes. You will be lying on a massage table and your modesty will be ensured by towels. Warm aromatic oils are used for the massage. Massaging is done using fingertips, thumbs, knuckles, palms, forearms and if you wish I can use elbows, too! The massaging may be gentle or vigorous, depending how you feel at the time. Relaxing music and a nice scent in the room will only enhance the exotic atmosphere.
At the end of treatment I will leave you to rest for 15 – 30 minutes in order to allow time for the body to absorb the Lomi Lomi deep within its cells. The ending procedure is not necessary, but I would highly recommend it to be a part of this massage.
