Lomi Lomi Nui is the Hawaiian “temple-style” bodywork which was originally practiced by the Kahunas (Hawaiian shamans) to transform & completely balance all aspects of self to create harmony & flow in a person’s being, leaving a sense of a person’s true, unique self and effectiveness in the community. In different parts of the world it is also known as Ka huna massage, Aloha massage, the massage of loving touch, “lomi lomi massage”, Hawaiian shaman massage, “the dance of life and breath from the heart”.
Being deeply connected to nature, Hawaiian Kahunas would use dance, chanting and ritual with Lomi Lomi massage to inspire deep healing and restore health, thereby promoting a happy and balanced community with Aloha. The Lomi Lomi therapist uses intuitive movement, breathing, rhythm and focused intention in long, flowing strokes up, down, under and over the body to free you from anything blocking the flow of your physical, emotional, spiritual or mental health, although always working within your own personal boundaries in the present moment.
Lomi Lomi Nui massage begins and ends with prayer, setting an intention for the individual’s healing and health in alignment with their highest good.
The kahuna massage therapist then uses various massage oils, hands, elbows and forearms in dynamic, deep movements that mimic the ebb and flow of the ocean.
