WHAT IS LOMI LOMI ?
Lomi Lomi is a word in the Hawaiian and Samoan languages. Lomi means “to knead, to rub, or soothe; to work in and out, as the paws of a contented cat. It may also mean “to take and turn, to shift” as in “the sacred shift within you that is inspired by the healing kahuna.”
This is unique healing massage derived from the ancient Polynesians and more specifically the master healer of Hawaii. The massage is given in fluid, rhythmic motion using the forearms as well as hands. Some described this as feeling like gentle waves moving over the body.
Another feature is that different parts of the body may be massage at the same time. This assists the recipient in feeling totally relaxing as it is impossible or at least extremely difficult for the brain to focus on the two different areas at once. By not working on area in isolation, a deep sense of balance and harmony is achieved. The treatment can be done by one person or by two or more people working together. Having two people massaging tends to send the recipient into a higher state of relaxation.
WHAT IS KAHUNA MASSAGE?
The Kahuna Massage is also known as Lomi Lomi and Hawaiian Temple style massage. This is a transformational massage and healing system which was originated in the South Pacific and was employed during Rites of Passage
Kahuna massage is the art of performing long stroke moves around the table (flowing Hula movements) with their hands, forearms and elbows to stimulate the flow of energy and synchronise clients’ breath and heartbeat. The Kahuna method work with energy to apply soft or deep tissue massage. This technique is gentle and relaxing massage which can help clients to connect their heart space, and release emotional stress and feel revitalised.
The Kahuna techniques now is becoming popular skills as it is a unique Hawaiian style of massage since the therapists can release tension, stress while compassionately performing a highly skilled and unique massage.
WHAT ARE THE DIFFIRENCES BETWEEN LOMI LOMI AND KAHUNA MASSAGE?
As two therapeutically enriching practices, both Lomi Lomi Massage and Kahuna Bodywork are methods you can utilise to enhance your holistic wellbeing.
No two Lomi Lomi and Kahuna Massages are the same. Even though there is no set format or sequencing for this practice, there are several main techniques that will be used in each massage to bring about deep relaxation and healing.
Using hands, arms, elbows and shoulders, Lomi Lomi massage therapist use long, flowing motions to relieve tension from the body. Gentle stretching and subtle joint movement are also incorporated into Lomi Lomi Massages to relax muscles, promote circulation and release stagnant energy from within.
Set to music, Kahuna Bodywork resembles a passionate dance that flows over and across your body. Healers use hands, fingers, arms and shoulders to employ common techniques of rhythmic pulling, pushing and long flowing strokes. Each practitioner adds their personalised styles as they intuitively cater for what your body needs; anything from strong and intense pressure to calm and nurturing movements.
As a result, patients feel rocked, soothed and cradled in the arms of the practitioner and their music. The flowing sounds, rhythmic strokes and deep breathing allow you to relax, let go and soak up positive energy. From decreasing muscle soreness and improving sleep to easing anxiety and eradicating energetic exhaustion, each and every person will experience an array of positive effects from Kahuna Bodywork.
