Lomi Lomi, which means “rub” or “massage” in Hawaiian, is a traditional Hawaiian massagetechnique used to bring about physical as well as mental relaxation. According to the Huma philosophy of Hawaii, the mind and the body are invariably interlinked and mutually interdependent. Good health depends on having both aspects in an harmonious balance.
The Hawaiian Lomi Lomi massage seeks to rid the body of physical and mental stresses, and free up the energy flow. Aromatic oils are used for massaging. The massaging is done using fingertips, thumbs, knuckles, palms, sides of palms, forearms, elbows, knees and even sticks and stones. The benefits of the Lomi Lomi massage are a relaxed nervous system, improved blood circulation and lymph flow, elimination of toxic waste and relief from body pain. The Lomi massage rejuvenates the body and instills a feeling of peace and well-being. Regular massages can help maintain good health.
