Q. What is Hawaiian Lomi Lomi massage?
Lomi Lomi is a beautifully flowing, relaxing and nurturing massage …. for more information visit the Lomi Lomi page of my website or feel free to ring me for any further information.
Q. I’ve never had a massage before. Can you give me an idea of what to expect?
All appointments start with a brief consultation, we can discuss what will happen during the massage and you can ask any questions. I will leave the room to allow you to change and get onto the massage couch. It is easier to perform massage without underwear particularly Lomi Lomi massage, or if you need work on the gluteal muscles, however, if you feel more comfortable leaving it on this is entirely up to you. Towels are used for draping and there is absolutely no need for you to be exposed or feel uncomfortable at all. If required, I can use additional draping to cover a woman’s breasts during massage to the front of the body. Once the massage is over I will leave the room to allow you to dress again.
Q. What oil do you use to massage?
I usually use organic coconut oil for Lomi Lomi, and for deeper massage techniques I use either a sweet almond or grapeseed oil which is ‘thicker’ allowing a less slippery glide for slower deeper work …. I also have a selection of Ayurvedic oils which are specifically blended to help alleviate muscular/nervous tension. If you have a preference, I will do my best to obtain the oil of your choice, please just ask .
Q. I am taking medication, can I still have a massage?
It’s more likely to be a condition rather than a medication that would prevent you from having a massage, however some medications such as warfarin could mean you bruise more easily so please, if in doubt, get in touch with your doctor and check.
Q. Do you massage men?
I believe that we all benefit from touch through massage regardless of gender, and so Yes, I do massage men.
