What is it?
Hawaiian massage, also called “loving hands massage”, works gently but deeply into the muscles using continuous flowing strokes totally nurturing and relaxing the body.
Using forearm, fingers, heel and palm of the hand across the whole body (this means from the shoulders all the way down to your heels) creating wave like movements and bringing in fresh oxygen to every cell. Flowing with total energy and combined with a very loving touch, it relaxes the entire being. Using one of the principles of huna-Makia which states that energy flows where attention goes, the focus is totally on you.
Lomi lomi works from the belief that memories are stored not just in the brain and mind, but also in every cell of the human body. The strokes are designed to help the body let go of its old patterns and behaviours, which can cause as many stress and strains as muscle tension.
This creates a new level of harmony and facilitates healing on many levels. For centuries the Kahunas (wise spiritual teachers of ancient Hawaii) worked with a magical form of bodywork, gently but effectively connecting with the inner soul, relieving the stress of physical ailments as well as clearing emotional blocks.
