Lomi Lomi is a restorative Hawaiian massage that works gently yet deeply into the muscles with continuous strokes. This allows the recipient to relax due to the hypnotic effect, bringing your mind to a place of absolute stillness. Touch,rhythm and ancient wisdom come together, allowing healing to occur. Lomi Lomi aids in relieving physical pain and emotional distress.Through its rhythm and patterns it activates meridians and energy points, releases energetic blocks and allows the bodies own healing process to take over. The true purpose of Lomi Lomi is to bring balance and a sense of well being of body, mind and spirit.
Traditional Old Style Lomi Lomi is a style of massage that has been practiced in Hawaii for hundreds of years. It has been carefully and respectfully passed down through a lineage to ensure that it remains unchanged from the original form. Kahu Sherman Deboit spent 10 years searching for the right person to carry on this lineage. Karen's teacher Dawn Charlton was chosen to continue to teach this ancient, traditional form of massage and healing in the original form.
What is Lomi Lomi?
Traditional Old Style Hawaiian
Lomi Lomi is an ancient Hawaiian tradition used to treat the body,
mind and soul. Lomi Lomi releases muscle tension, detoxes and cleanses
on a physical and a holistic level. The Hawaiians believe muscle
tension and negative thinking can block the energy flow. Lomi Lomi
massage restores circulation through your body, relieves stress and
fatigue and reconnects you to your physical self.
The continuous, long flowing
and deep pressure stroke movements are used to release muscle tension
creating a blissful state of relaxation for the recipient. This unique
form of sacred and holistic healing, can evoke a meditative state of
mind as the lomi lomi strokes dance across the muscles representing the
rhythm and motion of the ocean waves. You will feel a deeper
connection with your body and feel uplifted and refreshed. The detox
process will continue moving through your body for days after your
massage restoring harmony and balance on all levels.
How is Lomi Lomi different to a regular massage?
‘intent’ of a lomi lomi therapist must be aligned to the true essence
of this sacred technique - that is with a full and open heart. The body
is treated like a temple – sacred and honoured, the technique is
applied in a ritualistic and nurturing manner with the laying of the
hands over the chakra points of the body in combination with the lomi
lomi strokes. Refreshing and uplifting, lomi lomi strokes replicate the
cleansing and healing effects of the powerful ocean waves washing over
the body. The universal energy flows through the therapist’s hands and
to the body and goes beyond the physical level by sending healing to
touch and heal the soul. Each healing session is unique and is never
identical to the one received previously.
