A Hawaiian Lomilomi Massage is more than just a massage.
It is a healing tradition that has been passed down for many generations filled with ancestral knowledge.
The trained lomilomi practitioner draws on the mana (energy) of the Hawaiian Islands.
The tradition taps into the elements of nature: the mountains, ocean, wind, sun and the spirit of Aloha (Love). This energy is a gentle, yet powerful energy to support you in your healing.
Some of the benefits of Lomilomi massage may include, improved body circulation, release of tension and emotions like sadness, depression, or anxiety.
Reducing stress helps to strengthen your immune system and lead you to build better physical and mental health.
Also, many people have experienced an increase of energy and become motivated to take on new challenges.
Lomilomi encourages you to live your life as authentically as possible.
Lomilomi might help those who:
- Have stress in their lives.
- Have muscle aches and tension in their bodies.
- Are overworked and need to relax their body and mind.
- May be lacking energy or confidence.
- Feel like they are ‘stuck’ in life and want to move forward.
- Just want to relax and enjoy anauthentic lomilomi massage.
Our lomilomi not only heals your body, but also heals your heart.
It will leave you satisfied with joy and happiness.
Lei-aloha therapists really hope that you will have a chance to experience this lomilomi.
Steps Of Treatment
(from 2.5 hours to 3 hours in total)
We would like to suggest the following to maximize the benefits of your treatment:
- Please be free of any alcohol or mind-altering drugs in order for us to treat you.
- Have your last meal, preferably light, one hour before appointment time and stay hydrated.
Prior to your treatment, we will have a discovery session. This is a good time to advise us of any sensitives, skin allergies or if you have a particular area of your body that has pain or needs attention. You will be able to relax and talk freely with your therapist.
At this time, you will be asked to share information about your health condition, any worries, problems, or troubles that could possibly be causing stress. Stress can cause tension in your body that can lead to other ailments. We believe that the mind and body are connected so we like to take a holistic approach to support you.
Our therapists will advise you based on selected Hawaiian Values. Hawaiian Values are considered a part of the culture and philosophy. This useful knowledge may offer a good hint into your everyday concerns and help to bring balance back into your life as needed
For your convenience, we will provide you with a pareo (a kind of sarong made of a single straight piece of printed cotton cloth, worn by Polynesians) to change into before your treatment, so you don’t need to worry about clothing.
We use a proprietary blend of highly permeable massage oil. It is a combination of mainly organic macadamia nut oil with Hawaiian flower essence and a little peanut oil. A lighter lotion is available upon request.
Our therapist trained in the Hawaiian lomilomi tradition will work on your back, legs, foot, neck, head, face, and stomach.
They will look for and open any areas of blocked, stagnant or slow energy and invite you to release anything that no longer serves you.
This can be a freeing and healing experience for you.
③ Ho’oponopono (To make right; promotes mental purification)
Ho’oponopono uses a process of forgiveness and love to release any unwanted memories or disharmony that you may be holding on to.
This is a technique from ancient times and is one the most important processes in lomilomi.
Ho’oponopono provides you with an opportunity to release any negative feelings such as a painful memory and trauma, then fill it with heartwarming mana (energy) to restore balance and purify your body. You may feel a sense of renewal and rejuvenation.
④ After treatment
After your treatment you may feel a reconnection to the body, mind and spirit and feel more grounded, balanced and in harmony. You might be able to feel that your heart and body are healed and you have plenty of energy.
Your therapist will give you some after care advice to help support you in moving forward.
