Lomi Lomi Hawaiian Massage 

Lomi Lomi Massage, also known as Hawaiian Temple Style massage or Kahuna massage, is one of the most profound forms of massage. It originated in the islands of Hawaii, in the South Pacific. Lomi means to ‘rub’ and is a powerful form of healing developed by the master healers of the Polynesia. In this unique flowing style bodywork the practitioner uses long, fluid rhythmic strokes over the whole body with the hands, fingers, forearms and elbows. The practitioner moves around the table in a dance like movement applying soft and deep tissue massage. The rhythm is very relaxing. The strokes sometimes go all the way from the neck down to the foot. It works gently but deeply into the muscles with continuous, flowing strokes, totally nurturing the body and, enabling the recipient to relax, give in and simply be.   The Hawaiians look at things in terms of energy flow. They think that an idea or belief can block energy flow as much as muscle tension can. Most massage techniques work only on the physical level. Kahuna massage is not just a physical experience. Lomi lomi also facilitates healing on the mental, emotional and spiritual levels as well.
