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…” Lomi is said twice to provide emphasis.
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.
