The main focus of the Lomi Lomi session is to release tension, stress and negative emotions and instead leave you deeply relaxed, with a strong sense of connection to oneself. The body is treated as a whole and the massage is constantly flowing from head to toe using movements that are reminiscent of the waves and tides of the ocean. It is performed with varying combinations of hands, knuckles, fingers and forearms. The full body and under body strokes help to free the energy in the body, leaving it soft and supple. There is no set routine or format to this massage, so no two treatments will ever be the same. You will often have two parts of your body massaged at the same time, for example one arm or hand may be working on one shoulder whilst the other works on the opposite hip. You will undress completely* for this massage and lay under a large sheet, which will then be pulled down so your back is uncovered and then folded in to uncover your legs whilst still fully covering your buttocks and genitals. Women can chose to have their breast area covered or uncovered during the massage on the front of your body and the treatment will be adapted according to your preference.
Traditionally Lomi Lomi massage is performed with the client completely undressed with a towel or sarong in place to cover your buttocks and genitals. A breast covering is offered to female clients when they are lying face up. This allows the therapist to perform the unique Lomi Lomi moves, which work the full-length of the body. I’m happy to treat both men and women but you as the client must respect that Lomi Lomi is a holistic and spiritual massage, and although this is a full body massage your genitals are always covered and it is in no way a sexual massage.
