Lomi Lomi Nui:
A traditional Hawaiian massage that uses a combination of massage techniques to restore energy and soothe the body. Also known as the 'loving hands' massage, it works gently yet deeply into the muscles with continuous, flowing strokes, allowing the recipient to relax and give in to the nurturing touch. The treatment may be slow and relaxing or faster and invigorating but is generally deep and rhythmical. Unlike any other massage modality, Lomi Lomi massage is performed on the entire body at once. The therapist will use fingers, thumbs, palms, arms, and elbows to make broad flowing strokes which go from head to toe in a continuous, rhythmic movement massaging both the top and the underside of the body. Macadamia, palm and coconut oils are usually used as moisturisers in Lomi Lomi massage, to keep the strokes smooth and to nourish the skin. This vibrant massage can quickly release the stresses and strains of modern living, so we can find greater awareness and connection.
