Lomi Lomi is a type of Hawaiian massage, derived from ancient Polynesian culture. The word ‘Lomi’ in Hawaiian means “to knead, to rub, to soothe.” The Hawaiian philosophy of ‘Huna’, which is a fundamental assumption that everything seeks harmony and love, is at the heart of this type of massage. The approach utilizes ‘loving hands’ to work muscles deeply but gently with long, continuous flowing strokes.
The purpose of this type of massage is not just to induce a state of relaxation but to allow space for an individual to let go of self-limiting beliefs, patterns and behaviors that might be holding them back.
Hawaiians believe that thoughts and beliefs can become stuck in various cells of the body and so engaging in this type of massage helps release of unwanted emotions and feelings.
Most people are familiar with the term ‘Aloha’ meaning either ‘hello’ or ‘goodbye.’
When in fact it’s meaning goes much deeper and is referred to as ‘the joyful sharing of life energy in the present”, which is the very foundation of Lomi Lomi massage.
What better way to indulge in a little ‘me’ time, then with a Lomi Lomi massage to promote relaxation and an overall feeling of well being?
