Hawaiian Massage (Lomi Lomi)
This massage is one of the oldest and most powerful forms of healing. Hawaiian massage is also known as Ka Huna, Lomi Lomi or Temple style massage.
Hawaiian style flowing massage is an ancient form of massage therapy that treats the mind as well as the body. The Hawaiians see all aspects of the body as one and believe that the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual are all parts of the individual “whole”, so the massage is not just a physical experience, it also facilitates healing on all levels, spiritually, physically an emotionally.
The fundamental premise of Huna (Ka Huna means healer) is that everything seeks harmony and love – one of the alternative names for Lomi Lomi is “loving hands” massage – so whilst technique is an important part of the massage and associated healing, much of the work is done by love, with the focus of the therapist using loving hands and a loving heart.
The massage works by stimulating the natural flow of energy within the body – clients are encouraged to focus on their breathing during the massage. Inhaling enables you to draw fresh energy into yourself and exhaling allows you to expel tension and negativity.
There is no set format or routine, the treatment may be slow and relaxing or faster and invigorating, depending on the client’s needs, and everyone will have a different technique.
The massage is generally deep and rhythmical. Oils are applied with long forearm strokes. The rhythm is relaxing and works gently but deeply into the muscles. The energy comes from using this rhythm and movement to create a continuous ebb and flow between practitioner and recipient.
