Being one of the most ancient and powerful way of healing, the Lomi Lomi or „Loving Hands” massage goes beyond a simple massage therapy. This unique massage technique derives from the ancient Polynesians and was practiced and further developed by Hawaiian healers called kahuna.
Hawaiians used to look at things as flow of energy and they viewed all aspects of the body as one. Therefore, Lomi Lomi was practiced to remove blockages that can affect this flow of energy and to restore the right balance of those movements. According to their belief, this technique facilitated healing on a spiritual, mental and physical level. The Hawaiian Lomi Lomi was traditionally practiced in four aspects:
– as a restorative technique practiced with a family
− as a healing practice
– as a method that helped with digestion
– and by the masters of Hawaiian martial arts
Lomi Lomi practitioners, using loving hands and a loving heart, work gently yet deeply into the muscles with continuous, flowing strokes, often massaging different parts of the body at the same time. Therapists often work intuitively on the body combining slow and deep strokes with faster and more invigorating movements. This massage style is filled with energy flow and combined with the very loving touch, it relaxes the entire being, assisting in a letting go of old beliefs, patterns and behaviours. The experience will enable the recipient to relax, give in and simply be.
For whom do we recommend it?
Lomi Lomi is a unique experience that some people describes as feeling like gentle waves moving over the body, hence it is suitable for the lovers of ultimate relaxation. Recipients often experience an emotional release during the treatment because it gets rid of negative emotions and the healing process continues even after the session is over.
