Lomi-Lomi massage is a traditional form of massage originating in Hawaii. "Lomi" means "to knead, to press, to stir" in Hawaiian, and this type of massage is so named because of the large, fluid movements used all over the body, as if pressing and kneading the energies in the body.
Fluid and rhythmic movements: The therapist uses hands, forearms and sometimes even elbows to perform large, fluid, rhythmic movements all over the body. These movements mimic the dance of ocean waves and create a sense of organic connection between the therapist and the person being massaged.
Use of oils: Lomi-Lomi massage is performed using natural oils, which make it easier for the therapist's hands to glide over the skin and enhance the feeling of relaxation and pampering.
Holistic approach: Lomi-Lomi is more than just a physical massage; it is a holistic experience that aims to release not only physical tension, but also emotional and spiritual tension. The therapist focuses attention on all aspects of the being, helping to restore balance and harmony.
