Lomi Massage Maui
What is Lomi Massage Maui?
Lomi Lomi Massage in Maui is Hawaiian Massage. Lomi Lomi means Loving Hands. First, the Massage Therapist says a prayer for the client out loud or silently for the well being of the client and to set good intention.
The Lomi Lomi Massage Therapist knows that setting a good intention with massage helps unblock energy blockages and muscle tension in the clients body.
Lomi Lomi Hawaiian Massage is not just a physical experience. Lomi Lomi Massage also facilitates healing; mentally, emotionally, and spiritually and increases your well being.
How is Lomi Lomi practiced in Maui?
A Lomi Lomi or Temple Lomi Lomi session usually begins with the Massage Therapists hands gently resting on the client’s back. In this stillness, the Massage Therapist will quietly or silently say a blessing or prayer asking for whatever healing is needed to take place during the massage. Additionally, the client may be asked to set their intention for any healing they would like to receive.
The therapist then works intuitively with the client. In this respect there is no set format or sequence for the massage and no two massages will ever be identical. The massage is given in fluid, rhythmic motions. Some people have described Lomi Lomi feeling like gentle waves moving over the body.
Different parts of the body may be massaged at the same time, e.g. one arm or hand may be working on a shoulder and the other hand may be working on the opposite hip. This assists the recipient in relaxing and thus releasing tension-a key element of Lomi Lomi-as it is impossible, or at least extremely difficult, for the brain to focus on the two different areas at once.
According to Huna philosophy, energy also gets blocked in the joints. Gentle stretches of the body and gentle rotations of the joints are incorporated to assist the release of tension and assist the flow of energy.
Not forcing, but feeling the level of the client’s resistance or comfort. Lomi Lomi Massage actually pushes the muscle tissue into the bones and articulations (joints) of the body. The result is a refined approach to releasing muscles.
The islands are home to a form of massage so spiritually centered that it begins with a prayer. Lomi Lomi is not yet well known across North America. It is believed to have been brought to Hawaii over 1,000 years ago by Polynesian voyagers.
In large flowing movements that extend over the entire body of the client-the Lomi Lomi practitioner uses her forearms and hands in a penetrating rhythm, like the motion of the sea. In a Duo Massage, Lomi Lomi treatment can go on for hours with two therapists working at the same time.
