In regard to bodywork, Lomi Lomi – also known as traditional Hawaiian massage – focuses on the harmony of the body, mind and soul. It is a holistic relaxing massage, during which the body can restore its own natural balance.
Warm almond oil is used in the lomi lomi massage in combination with intense touch and relaxing hand movements. At the same time, it is also an energetic massage performed with intensity, as it impacts the energetic lines (Sen – Meridians) throughout the whole body of the recipient. It can be compared to a “dance of harmony and balance” on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level. On a physical level, Lomi lomi achieves a remarkable muscular relaxation through gentle but intense touches, as it also reaches the deepest fascia. At the same time, the body’s energies are set in motion.
The effect is based, amongst other things, on the fact that regions of the body that are further away are massaged at the same time. As our brain cannot perceive impulses in the different regions equally, it has to relinquish control, and we can surrender to the rhythmic movement of the massage.
The magic of my Lomi Lomi Nui massage derives from the combination of Tao, flowing breath, concentration, rhythm and fluent movements through the energy pathways (Sen – meridians). Lomi Lomi allows us to encounter ourselves, so that we can experience harmony and rest in the center of our deepest being. Feel the connection of your body and your energy.
Lomi Lomi Nui is the “touch of love and compassion”: a connection of the heart, hands and soul with the source of live. Traditional Hawaiian massage is performed with respect, gentleness, intensity, intention and rhythm so that the flow of energy in the body becomes perceptible and blockages can be release and the body can restore its own natural balance.
