Lomi Lomi is a specialized type of holistic massage that has its roots in ancient Polynesian traditions. Lomi Lomi massage therapists use a combination of traditional Native Hawaiian techniques and a belief in sharing mana (life energy) in the present moment. A Lomi Lomi massage therapist can help you activate your mana to feel better, improve your health, and gain spiritual balance.
Lomi Lomi massage therapists work with the life energy called mana, which bears many similarities to qi in Chinese acupressure and ki in Japanese Reiki. They also use techniques similar to those used by Western therapists, such as rubbing, kneading, and stroking.
Benefits of Lomi Lomi Massage Include:
Unlike other forms of massage, Lomi Lomi involves full-body sweeping motions with two areas sometimes being massaged at once. You will likely be covered with a small towel with all extremities uncovered. Women's breasts will be covered at all times and stomach massage is desired but optional. The approach is holistic, creating a mind/body connection to treat you on all levels: mind, body, emotion, and spirit.
