The Hawaiian massage (also known as lomilomi) doesn’t have a set format; instead, it is dictated by the body’s individual energy flow, focusing on long seamless strokes that glide from one part of the body to another. The Hawaiian massage soothes the mind while easing tension in the muscles. At some points different body parts are being massaged at the same time therefore allowing you to relax more extremely as it is unlikely that the brain will focus on two areas at once. This massage greatly improves state of mind, relaxation and reduces stress. Hawaiian massage may result in glowing skin and good flexibility. This massage also improves circulation, immune response and digestion; and eliminates toxins from the body. Receiving a Hawaiian massage regularly will contribute to your overall health and well being.
Emphasizing a mind-body connection, the Hawaiian massage treatments affect the recipient on physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels.
During and after treatment an emphasis is placed on removal of any negative mental energy the recipient may have, as this is believed to effect physical health.
