  • What to Expect:

  • Lomi-lomi massage

  • Usually, massage therapists begin a lomi-lomi session by gently placing their hands on you and standing still for a moment. They may ask you to take a deep breath to help you relax. A traditional practitioner can incorporate other rituals such as chants and music. Often more of your body is discovered during this massage than during a typical Swedish or deep tissue massage. That's because therapists rarely massage one body part at a time. Instead, they move in long smooth movements that can start, for example, at the top of your shoulder and go all the way to your foot. Some therapists use massage sheets in the usual way, only exposing larger areas of your body at a time. The more traditional practice is for the therapist to cover your genital area and breasts with small towels. Lomi-Lomi is best known for long, smooth, dance-like movements, often using the forearms and copious amounts of oil. But because there are so many styles, the details of a massage can vary. Gentle strokes and joint rotations are common in this massage, just like the massage therapist massaging two parts of your body at the same time, for example with one hand or forearm on your shoulder while simultaneously massaging a hip with the other hand or forearm. Massaging two areas at the same time as well as the long smooth movements are believed to promote harmony and balance in your body. Traditional lomi lomi always includes belly massage because the Hawaiian tradition considers the colon in the soul or heart of a person. Benefits of this massage are the same as those of other types of massage in terms of relaxing muscles, promoting circulation and releasing blocked energy. The difference lies in the Hawaiian traditions woven into the massage,
