Lomi lomi is a traditional Hawaiian massage that uses a combination of massage techniques, oils, and sometimes elements of prayer, breathing and dance to restore energy and soothe the body.
It is also known as the 'loving hands' massage.
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.
I will work intuitively with your body, with fluid, rhythmic strokes to release and shift tensions. There is no set format for the massage itself, so no two Hawaiian massages are the same.
The treatment may be slow and relaxing or faster and more invigorating, depending on how your body responds. You might find that I massage two different parts of your body simultaneously - this is to stop your brain from focusing on any one area.
