Lomi Lomi Massage
Lomi lomi is an ancient Hawaiian restorative healing system, one component of which is the art of compassionate touch. It includes many techniques, some of which are similar to what we learn in Swedish massage, while others are similar to Asian bodywork techniques. The strokes are done with the hands and forearms and are often long and sweeping, much like long, rolling waves traveling along the body.
Lomilomi, sometimes called Hawaiian massage, is beneficial for many ailments and to increase spiritual energy and personal power (mana). The nurturing strokes are relaxing; however, one soon learns this work is therapeutic on all levels.
