What is LomiLomi Massage?
LomiLomi massage originated as a therapeutic technique from the islands of Hawaii, and represents an inclusive, holistic healing treatment that draws on a combination of body work and intention.
However, from long experience we know that authentic LomiLomi massage offers so much more than simply another physical massage discipline. LomiLomi massages aim to harmonise every aspect of individual wellbeing, taking in mind, body and spirit to deliver a profound sense of calmness. Each massage is carried out using the full concentration of the therapist in the Hawaiian spirit of aloha, with the end result being an excellent antidote to the kind of physical, mental and emotional stress that is commonly caused by the fast pace of modern life.
Traditionally, Hawaiian LomiLomi massage utilises a lengthy oil-based massage, during which a specialist uses their forearms, hands and on occasion elbows where necessary to promote muscle relaxation. This technique makes use of a combination of long, rhythmic strokes that fluctuate in both depth and strength, with continuous movement covering the entire body. The result is a flowing, dynamic holistic massage that helps clear, nurture and relax the patient. This discipline has profoundly beneficial impacts for the recipients’ muscular, circulatory, lymphatic, immune and digestive systems.
In addition, LomiLomi massages can create an overall sense of comfort, enhance your self confidence and help you achieve a peaceful, tranquil mindset.
Because this massage involves the application of oil in a continuous flow of energy and technique we advise our patients to receive it without clothes; however the patient remains covered throughout with either a loin cloth or sarong. The oils that are used for our LomiLomi massages are a mixture of beautifully scented sweet almond and coconut oils. These products are of superior quality and have been specifically chosen due to their superior quality and have excellent dermatological properties.
