The Master Healers of Hawaii knew that there were special ways to release and
unblock the powers of the body so that physical, mental, emotional and spiritual
healing could take place more quickly and completely. Born in the Islands of the
South Pacific, this unique bodywork is a subtle, yet powerful form of massage.
Lomi Lomi literally means to push, pull and knead. This is a healing system
which brings balance, restoration and heart-opening peace to the body.
While technique is an important part of the massage and associated healing,
much of the work is done by love, with the total focus of the practitioner on
the client being deep and complete. Feeling love and compassion for the client,
rather than treating them as an object to be 'fixed', allows for harmony to be
created inside the body. This incorporates two of the main assumptions of Huna -
everything seeks harmony and everything seeks love. Thus Lomilomi is also called
'loving hands' massage and works gently yet deeply into the muscles using
continuous, flowing strokes, totally nurturing the body enabling the recipient
to relax, give in and simply be.
With Lomi Lomi you can feel a 'letting go' of old beliefs, patterns and
behaviours that no longer serve you and cause limitations. The Hawaiians look at
life in terms of energy flow, following the premise that an idea or belief can
block energy flow as much as muscle tension can. Using body and energy work to
help release the blockages, while at the same time giving the energy new
direction and set new patterns . This results in mental clarity and physical
release allowing for powerful healing in yourself and your life..
Energy flows where attention goes, the therapist is totally focused on the
clients body and being. It is more than simply touching the body, your being
becomes one with the other, penetrating, making it soft and relaxing it at the
deepest levels to restore balance and allow healing at the deepest levels of
body, mind and spirit.
