Lomi Lomi …. This unique massage technique is the ultimate massage … It is a gentle, flowing, beautifully nurturing and deeply relaxing massage to receive …..
Lomi Lomi originated in Hawaii where families would use massage as a tool for healthcare. Like so many cultures, ancient Hawaiians understood the powerful effect massage can have on the mind, body and spirit. It is more than just a physical massage, it is an holistic healing treatment using bodywork, breathwork and intention.
This intention is deeply rooted in the Hawaiian spirit of Aloha (breath of life and loving presence) and so takes a kind-hearted and non-judgemental, gentle approach.
Rather than working on areas of the body in isolation, Lomi Lomi’s flowing forearm strokes sweep over and under the body. This touch allows a deeper letting go into relaxation, totally nurturing the body and the spirit within, enabling you to relax, give in and simply be. It clears, nurtures, relaxes and is beneficial to all the systems of the body. In an age of constant stress, low self esteem, lack of self acceptance and pressure to be something other than we are Lomi Lomi can offer a refuge – a nurturing space to be just ourselves, as we are, accepted regardless of how we look or live. Lomi Lomi creates a sense of well being, raises your self esteem and brings joy to your body and peace to your mind.
Lomi Lomi is not just a physical experience. Whilst technique is an important part of the massage and healing process; the focus is on working with unconditional love and compassion for the client and helping to restore harmony and balance. It thereby incorporates two of the main principles of Huna: Everything seeks Harmony and Everything seeks Love.
About the treatment:
After an initial consultation, I shall leave you to undress and lie covered on a couch. Smaller towels are used for draping to maintain modesty as required, and so that the full body strokes used in this massage are easier to perform, underwear is usually not worn. However, should you not feel comfortable with this, underwear can be worn but please be aware it will get oily. Traditionally, Lomi massage is carried out without sheets and directly on the uncovered couch. This allows any underbody strokes to be used without resistance and this is the way I carry out the massage.
Lomi Lomi can have a profound effect on people – on how they relate to themselves and everyone around them. It is love in its purest undiluted essence
