Lomi Massage


Lomi Massage  is an ancient form of massage that originated amongst the Pacific Island people.
This Hawaiian healing art has been practised for hundreds of years by master practitioners (Kahuna) and elders (Kupuna),  was common within each Hawaiian community and has been used as a powerful tool for maintaining a healthy way of life.

Lomi practices varied by family, region and island and was traditionally practised in four contexts:
as a healing practice of native healers, by Masters of the Hawaiian martial arts (Lua), as restorative massage within the family and as a luxury (Kings and rulers).
 
Hawaiian Lomi is a flowing and dynamic oil massage where the massage therapist uses a combination of long and gentle  strokes, incorporating soft and deep tissue massage.
This technique is focused on finding congested areas in the body and dispersing them by moving the forearms and palms in rhythmic dance-like motions that vary in depth and intensity.

The purpose of this beautiful massage, often described as "a dance over the body", is to help the person to connect and harmonize the mind, body and spirit, and to restore balance and health.
