Hawaiian Lomi Lomi Massage
The gentle and rhythmical breaking of waves on the seashore; the natural harmony of unspoilt places; the hypnotic sensuality of the traditional Hula dance; the power and grace of local martial art Lua: in Hawaii, everything speaks of balance between body and spirit, energy and substance. It is no surprise that this fascinating culture, so perfectly in tune with nature and all living things, has developed an ancient form of massage geared to relaxation, harmony and love. Some years ago the ancient wisdom of the Kahuna masters of this art arrived in the West, and they spread the practice of Lomi Lomi, which means simply “massage” – also called soul massage or loving hands massage. And it’s easy to see why. Lomi Lomi mostly uses the hands and forearms. Through a series of rhythmic, sweeping movements, it releases the muscles and loosens joints; the result is relaxing but also toning, and excellent for the circulation.
