Aloha! Lomi Lomi is Hawaiian-style massage, a very relaxing and effective therapeutic technique. I practice Mana Lomi, in the lineage of Dr. Maka’ala Yates. This is a conservative tradition where clients are draped with a sheet.
Rhythmic dance-like movements of the therapist’s hands and forearms are used to break-up fibrous deposits and lactic acid, improve circulation of blood and lymph, eliminate toxins and edema, alleviate muscle spasm, and increase metabolism. The therapist utilizes techniques such as compression, vibration, deep-tissue work, range of motion of all joints, and visceral (stomach) massage.
The full Lomi Lomi massage is a 90-minute treatment.
