Hawaiian Massage

 

Also referred to as Lomi Lomi, Hawaiian Massage is a very old and profound form of healing art, derived from the ancient master healers of Hawaii. It combines a sequence of sacred ceremonies and bodywork techniques, which activate the healing power of Aloha (Love). Lomi Lomi is not just a massage, but also an expression of the life philosophy of Hawaiians, called Huna.

 

A basic principle of Huna is that everything and everyone has beauty and seeks love and harmony. Lack of harmony creates disconnection and builds tension, causing pain, sickness of body, mind and spirit. The Hawaiians view all aspects of the body (physical, mental, emotional and spiritual) as parts of the whole-self, so that if one level is disrupted the entire body is ill and in disharmony. Hawaiian Massage techniques, combined with the loving intention of the practitioner, facilitate healing and help to restore inner harmony, self-love, heart openness thus facilitating healing on all levels.

 

Unlike other bodywork systems where the therapist uncovers and treats one body region at a time, Hawaiian Massage is performed on the entire nude body at once, with a sarong or a loin cloth to cover intimate parts. Body oil or butter is used all over the body. The therapist will use long flowing strokes running from head to toe in a continuous rhythmic motion massaging front and back, upper and lower parts of the body, sides and between/around breasts. The massage strokes are given through very fluid, dance-like and rhythmic motion using full hands, forearms and palms, feeling like waves moving over the body. The movements, and the fact that different parts of the body may be massaged at the same time, will confuse your thinking mind, you will surrender and fall into deep relaxation, travelling to your inner spirit where peace and self-love are found. A truly healing experience that has no boundaries!
