What is the Lomi Lomi or Hawaiian massage?
If you are wondering what the lomi lomi (or Hawaiian) massage is, the answer is simple: it is a holy treatment that the Hawaiian natives have handed down through generations.
The Lomi Lomi massage is also defined as a massage of the soul because it draws its origins from the slow movements typical of those places and from the universal harmony that pours out in the form of energy between the folds of the treatment.
This massage is performed with ointments and frictions all over the body. Meanwhile, Hula music (typical of the Hawaiian Islands) is used to better convey the positivity of the massage.
The movement practiced is described as harmonious, rhythmic and enveloping. The metaphor that most represents this treatment is the movement of the sea, a mixture of constant breathing and slow and full gestures. A true balance of dance, touches, music and sighs.
Who performs the Lomi Lomi massage has a great responsibility: he must be able to transmit love to the patient. It may seem like a set sentence made from a romance novel but in reality the Hawaiian massage conveys to those who undergo it the feeling of being on the Hawaiian Islands, with all the powerful slowness of those places, hospitality, the bond with the land, with the sea and the fullness of the natives. Love, in a few words.
The Lomi Lomi massage is very special and very intimate: the treatment begins with a sincere dialogue to allow the operator to understand, as much as possible, the physical, mental and emotional state of those who undergo it. In this way, the Hawaiian massage is designed on the individual.
The massage starts from the nape and then continues along the back. It then passes to the arms and, again, to the lower limbs including the feet.
The tension that stress and daily life accumulate throughout the body vanishes as if by magic.
We told you it’s a little magical, didn’t we?
