Lomi Lomi Massage
The Lomi Lomi massage also referred to as the loving hand massage, is native to Hawaii and considered sacred. It involves a variety of breathing sessions, prayers, dancing, and various massage techniques using nut oil. The massage aims to soothe the body and restore energy balance. Using long strokes makes it gentle yet intense enough to reach deep muscles, sending you into a deep sense of relaxation.
The method takes on the concept that cells of the body also store memory, leading to issues such as tension and stress in the muscles. Strokes are long and flowing, involving the use of fingers, palms, thumbs, elbows, and arms to help relieve muscle strain. The oils used during any massage session are virgin coconut oil, macadamia, and palm oil, revitalising the skin while ensuring the strokes remain fluid and uniform. This special massage is believed to bring a feeling of oneness and peace while assisting blood supply, the removal of waste, and rejuvenation. A good Lomi Lomi massage should be performed by an experienced massage therapist. Therefore, we at Elis Spa take pride in offering our licensed massage therapists who have the experience and know-how to conduct the massage.
