Have you all heard of Lomi Lomi Massage?? Some of you may have heard and some of you might not. Well, we are here to give you a clear picture.
Lomi Lomi Massage is a traditional Hawaiian massage that uses a combination of massage techniques to restore energy and soothe the body. Also known as the ‘loving hands’ massage, it works gently yet deeply into the muscles with continuous, flowing strokes, allowing the recipient to relax and give in to the nurturing touch. The treatment may be slow and relaxing or faster and invigorating but is generally deep and rhythmical. Unlike Thai Massage or any other massage modality, Lomi Lomi massage is performed on the entire body at once.
A typical Lomi Lomi session might begin with a prayer followed by meditation and breathing exercises in order to focus the mind. Although the practitioners massage each client according to their needs, Lomi Lomi generally involves rhythmic and massage strokes in order to clear the blockage in blood circulation.
The therapist will use fingers, thumbs, palms, arms, and elbows to make broad flowing strokes which go from head to toe in a continuous, rhythmic movement massaging both the top and the underside of the body. Macadamia, palm and coconut oils are usually used as moisturisers in Lomi Lomi massage, to keep the strokes smooth and to nourish the skin. This vibrant massage can quickly release the stresses and strains of modern living, so we can find greater awareness and connection.
Lomi Lomi massage therapy has many health benefits. It can cure a wide range of health conditions and imbalances. The fluid-like movements of the hands and attention around the joints helps break down any blocked energy that you may be experiencing physically or mentally.
