Lomi Lomi massage, also referred to as the art of touch, is an ancient Hawaiian traditional healing ritual.
Its form, common in Europe, is more of a wellness massage, which helps to regenerate the exhausted body and cares for the tired soul. Lomi Lomi massage is characterized by long, deep touches, which are performed on a large surface with hands, forearms and elbows. Massage greatly contributes to overcoming depression, calms the nervous system, helps relieve pain of various origins, improves the body's blood supply and stimulates the functioning of the lymphatic system and immune system.
Lomi Lomi is a traditional Hawaiian massage that uses a combination of massage techniques, nut oils and sometimes elements of prayer, breathing and dance to restore energy and calm the body. Also known as "loving hands" massage. This name helps to explain the principles - the massage works gently, yet deeply, into the muscles with continuous, flowing movements, allowing you to relax and surrender to the nourishing touch.
Lomi Lomi massage is based on the belief that memories are stored not only in the brain and mind, but also in every cell of the human body. The long, steady strokes of a massage are designed to help your body release old habits and behaviors that can cause so much tension, such as muscle tension.
Macadamia, palm and coconut oils are used as moisturizers in the Lomi Lomi massage to keep the movements smooth and nourish the skin.
Many believe that the healing art of Lomi Lomi was brought to Hawaii by the earliest Polynesian settlers, while others believe that it is deeply infused with the practice of "living aloha" that originated in ancient Hawaii and the mystical land of Mu. The Hawaiian Lomi Lomi massage is also called the Kahuna exercise.
Effects of the Lomi Lomi massage
The aim of Lomi Lomi Hawaiian massage is to treat the body and mind as a whole being. Among the effects of the Lomi Lomi massage is that it helps release tension, removes waste products, accelerates detoxification, helps blood flow, rejuvenates the body, creates a feeling of peace, harmony and well-being.
In Hawaii, Lomi Lomi is also used to treat children with upset stomachs and to calm women in labor. The purpose of the Lomi Lomi masseur is not to cure itself, but to promote healing.
Before you come..
It is worth remembering that the oils used during the massage do not protect the hair or make-up, so it may not be worth returning to work immediately after the treatment. But that's okay - if you cancel your afternoon plans, you can spend more time in post-Lomi heaven.
Avoid heavy meals or alcohol in the hours before the massage.
What can we expect from a Lomi Lomi massage?
The Lomi Lomi healing practice usually begins with a period of rest, sometimes the masseuse's hands lightly rest on your back. In this silence, the traditional Lomi Lomi practitioner says a blessing or prayer and asks for some form of healing.
The masseuse works intuitively with your body, using fluid, rhythmic movements to release and shift tension. The Lomi Lomi massage is performed with large movements. In the Hawaiian language, "nui" means big, so this type of massage is also known as Lomi Lomi nui massage. The massage itself has no set format, so no two Hawaiian massages are the same. The treatment can be slow and relaxing or faster and invigorating, depending on how your body responds. The masseuse may massage two different parts of your body at the same time – preventing your brain from focusing on one area and helping you relax.
The masseuse can perform full or lower body movements, slightly stretch your limb and gently rotate your joints. These techniques are believed to free the flow of energy and are performed very gently, staying within your comfort zone and resistance level.
