What is Lomi-Lomi?
Lomi Lomi massage is known as the “hands of love”. This message originated from Hawaii. The style is a holistic Hawaiian temple bodywork which was practised by shamans to transform energy in important moments of people’s lives to create harmony and clarity within. This massage works in a gentle but powerful way, relieving physical and emotional tensions caused by energy blockages. It concentrates on loving touch, awareness of breathing and intention. It is done with slow rhythmic motion based on long, flowing massage strokes up, down, under and over the body which makes it a unique experience and helps to achieve deep relaxation. The sensation of floating on an ocean wave, often experienced during treatment, can be described as, a surrender of self that brings about well-being and happiness.

Coconut or other natural oil is warmed and spread on the body with great focus and intent to bring about the energetic opening for the highest possible good of the individual.
Deep breathing and focusing on positive intention helps a lot during the massage. If your mind wonders just breathe and count your blessings.
After the session, I always allow the client a private rest period in order to allow time for the body to absorb the Lomi Lomi deep within its cells. This is a form of silent meditation on and gratitude prayer for the sharing of energy among the client, practitioner and the highest powers that be.
