What is Lomi Lomi Massage?Lomi Lomi massage technique is one of the oldest and most profound forms of massage also known as Hawaiian Temple Style massage or Kahuna massage. It originated in the islands of Hawaii, in the South Pacific. It is a unique healing massage derived from the ancient Polynesians and more specifically the master healers of Hawaii To understand what is Hawaiian Lomi Lomi massage is to have an understanding of the Hawaiian philosophy. Lomi means to ‘rub’ and is a powerful form of healing developed by the master healers of the Polynesia.
How Lomi Lomi Massage Works?In this unique flowing style bodywork the practitioner uses long, fluid rhythmic strokes over the whole body with the hands, fingers, forearms and elbows. The practitioner moves around the table in a dance like movement applying soft and deep tissue massage. The rhythms during Lomi Lomi massage are very relaxing. It works gently but deeply into the muscles with continuous, flowing strokes, totally nurturing the body and, enabling the recipient to relax, give in and simply be.
Healing Properties of Lomi LomiThe Hawaiians look at things in terms of energy flow where everything seeks harmony and everything seeks love. They think that an idea or belief can block energy flow as much as muscle tension can. Most massage techniques work only on the physical level however Lomi Lomi massage is not just a physical experience. Lomi lomi also facilitates healing on the emotional, mental and spiritual levels.The nervous system and the senses or awareness are tuned. Lomi lomi may also release old family memories, stress and trauma locked away in the subconscious mind.
Spiritual HealingThe master healers of Hawaii knew there were special ways to release and unblock the powers of the body so that physical, mental, emotional and spiritual healing could take place effectively.
Whilst Lomi Lomi is an important part of the massage, and associated healing the work is done with unconditional enthusiasm. The focus of the practitioner is deeper and complete. Feeling endeared and compassion for the client, rather that treating him/her as an object to be “fixed” allows for harmony to be created within the body.
