Lomi Lomi massage
Lomi Lomi - or traditional Hawaiian massage - is known for its long, broad, dynamic strokes. Some call it flowing river massage, as it feels like being immersed in gentle movements of water. Covered with a modesty cloth, rhythmic strokes flow up and down the entire body, using generous amounts of warm oil. The movement patterns of Lomi Lomi are nurturing and soft, and tension is subtly dissolved to leave room for peace and vitality.
As a cornerstone of Western massage, this deeply relaxing full-body treatment uses the classic strokes of Swedish massage therapy. Swedish massage is traditionally used for pain management, increased circulation, relaxation, and to alleviate anxiety and depression. Light to medium pressure is applied.
