Lomi massage is a unique full body healing massage, derived from the ancient Polynesians, and the master healers of Hawaii, the Huna.
A fundamental assumption of the Huna is that everything seeks harmony and everything seeks love, and as a result Lomi is also called “loving hands massage”. So whilst technique is an important part of the massage and associated healing, much of the work is done with love.
The focus of the practitioner is completely on the client. The experience is a very different type of massage. It is soft and sensuous and flowing, not firm or in anyway painful. Thus allowing the body to relax and heal naturally, without being forced.
The massage works gently but deeply into the muscles, using continuous flowing strokes. Totally nurturing the body and enabling you to relax, give in, and simply be present. A rare gift to yourself in our hurried world. The strokes also help distract and confuse the conscious mind. They may appear to have no set pattern, with seemingly no beginning or end. This is to encourage the mind to let go and enter a deep state. This relaxed state is where the Huna believed real healing takes place. They believed that our thoughts and belief systems can block energy flow and create physical tension and pain, but by combining loving touch and bring about a relaxed peaceful state, where energy flows, the body and mind can begin to repair. Years of old thought patterns, belief systems habits and behaviours can be released. Not only that, this nurturing massage can assist in detoxification of the lymph, the organs, help with physical aches and pains, digestive issues, and cellulite to name a few.
A Lomi massage is usually 1 1/2 hours in Length. The session commences with a stillness between the practitioner and client, often with the practitioners hands gently resting on the clients back. In this stillness the practitioner will quietly set intention for whatever healing is needed to take place during the massage. The practitioner then works very intuitively with the client. In this respect there is no set format or sequence for the massage and no two massages will ever be identical. Every care is take in this massage to create a warm relaxing environment in order for your muscles to let go and your body and mind to heal.
