Lomilomi is the traditional art of Hawai'in massage.
Unlike conventional massage, Lomilomi strokes are performed using the skilled use of the forearms. Rolling actions with varying degrees of pressure effectively ease out areas of tension in the body. These are combined with long sweeping double strokes over large areas of the body to ensure a sense of deep connectedness and wholeness in the client.
I practice Lomilomi Nalu, an ancient form of this style of massage. It is called the Lomi of the Breaking Waves as the strokes simulate the waves of a calm ocean lapping over the body. The massage is gentle, flowing and sensual.
It helps to remove toxins, tension, pain and fatigue and replaces them with positive energy, increased circulation and improved muscle tone.
The massage is performed on the whole body using organic coconut oil to soften and nourish the skin.
Lomilomi is given consciously in the spirit of Aloha, a deep and all-embracing sense of loving connection, acceptance and reverence.
