Lomi lomi is the word used today to mean “massage therapist” or “Hawaiian massage.” In the Hawaiian language means “to rub, knead, press, squeeze, massage; to work in and out, as the claws of a contented cat.
The free-flowing strokes that typify lomi lomi have many of the same benefits of traditional Swedish massage: improved circulation and immune response, increased range of motion and flexibility, improved posture, faster healing, slower heart rate and lower blood pressure.
The strokes can be long, smooth and relaxing, or quick and invigorating. The key is that the masseuse and the client are working in tandem. The Lomi lomi Massage gives an added dimension to your relaxing experience.
