Lomi Lomi

Lomilomi, meaning “massage” in the Hawaiian language, is the word used today to describe Hawaiian massage, traditionally called lomi meaning “to rub, press, squeeze, massage; to work in and out, as the claws of a contented cat”. Lomi Lomi is a holistic healing tradition beyond simple massage.

Lomi Lomi video demonstration
This beautifully filmed video is a demonstration of Lomi Lomi massage, also known as Hawaiian Temple massage. The style is extremely fluid and rhythmic. It uses the forearms as well as the hands. I imagine water or gentle waves moving over the body. It looks like different parts of the body are sometimes massaged at the same time. I love the way the hands flow under and over the body, something that is not seen with traditional Swedish massage.

Professional massage therapists will benefit from this DVD which is produced and narrated by Steve Ibach, and approved provider of continuing education for the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork.

Lomi lomi is performed with minimal draping (but not usually totally nude and uncovered) to allow the full body to be massaged at once. It’s a very sensual massage, but is not sexual in any way when done professionally.

What is Lomi Lomi Massage?

Prior to having a Lomi Lomi treatment, Lomi session, be sure to let your practitioner know of any medical concerns or if you are pregnant so the practitioner can adjust the intensity of the massage techniques to avoid possible risks. It’s suggested that you don’t eat or drink if you are going to get massage.

The intent of Lomi Lomi massage is to do away with mental and physical stress. This technique begins with a prayer, done by the therapist asking for healing of anything in the body that needs to be healed. This type of approach doesn’t really have any specific strokes. No two Lomi Lomi sessions will ever be exactly the same.

The receiver lies face down on a mat wearing only his or her underwear. The practitioner’s hands will be placed in the client’s back as they pray for healing. The receiver may be advised to relax and clear their mind to receive the healing.

The therapist may hum or dance while doing the massage to unblock, vibrate and amplify the healing power for both the therapist and the client.

Since the massage is done intuitively, there will be times that the massage may be slow and totally relaxing, while there will be times that it will be faster and energetic. The practitioner often massages more than one part of the body or both sides of the body simultaneously.

The session can be provided by one therapist or by a number of practitioners in one treatment. The brain will not be able to focus on two or more areas at once so the mind relaxes and a deeper feeling of balance and relaxation will be reached.

The Lomi Lomi massage brings a sensation of serenity and well being, with the beneficial effects continuing even long after the session has concluded.

This beautifully filmed video is a demonstration of Lomi Lomi massage, also known as Hawaiian Temple massage. The style is extremely fluid and rhythmic. It uses the forearms as well as the hands. I imagine water or gentle waves moving over the body. It looks like different parts of the body are sometimes massaged at the same time. I love the way the hands flow under and over the body, something that is not seen with traditional Swedish massage.

The client is draped, but the draping appears to be minimal. I can imagine that many clients would not be comfortable with Lomi Lomi due to the sensual nature of this massage.

Beautifully done. I have been watching massage videos online for a long time and I am right now in the very final stages of deciding to enroll in a world class massage therapy program. Your Lomi Lomi massage vid has now almost certainly sealed my decision. No other career I know can allow for such fluid, purposeful movement. An art form like dance or sculpting really.
