Aloha with loving hands and a loving heart -one of the most profound forms of massage and no two massages will ever be the same.
Lomi lomi is a traditional Hawaiian, unique, healing massage that uses a combination of massage techniques, elements of prayer, breathing and dance to restore energy and soothe the body. It is also known as the ‘loving hands’ massage. This name helps to explain its principles – the massage works gently yet deeply into the muscles with continuous, flowing strokes, allowing the recipient to relax and give in to the nurturing touch.
Lomi lomi works from the belief that memories are not just stored in the brain and mind, but also in every cell of the human body. The long, continuous strokes of the massage are designed to help the body let go of its old patterns and behaviours, which can cause as many stresses and strains as muscle tension.
The therapist creates a fluid magical treatment with the pulse of music, totally nurturing the whole organism. As a result, the person receiving feels continues waves of “loving hands” all over his body, allowing him to surrender and have a deeply relaxing experience while decluttering old beliefs and patterns stored in the cells of the body.
A spiritual healing experience that words cannot aptly describe.
