LOMI LOMI MASSAGE

Lomi Lomi Nui is a Hawaiian massage whose technique has been handed down for many generations by the natives of the Hawaiian islands; it revolves around the idea that everything is connected and therefore it is possible to find a way to communicate with every element of the world. Lomi Lomi Nui massages can be gentle or energetic, slow or fast, soothing or invigorating, intense or light, depending on the tension met by the masseur as they give the massage; it is often referred to as the “Shifting massage”, because it helps people pick themselves up and start a new life, spurring them to find new projects and a new place in the world. It is a deep rhythmical massage that makes use of fluid movements producing an effect similar to that of being lulled by gentle sea waves; this rhythm touches a person's innermost regions helping them find the perfect equilibrium. This technique is based on four key elements: breath, dance, touch and music. Colours are also important, as well as the “presence-absence” of the ocean: as all the movements are inspired to sea waves. This massage has a positive effect on the lymphatic, circulatory, breathing and digestive systems, as well as on the muscles. Special care is dedicated to the treatment of joints. As far as the mind and soul are concerned, Lomi Lomi Nui massages offer relax to the nervous system and aim at working as a bridge that connects body and spirit; it is particularly advised to those who need to tackle depression, stress and traumas. According to the native Hawaiians, energy needs to flow abundantly and constantly through our selves, but it is often hindered by tension and stress, by negative thoughts and daily mishaps. The Kahunas (Hawaiian shamans) have developed a massage that works on the connection between mental and physical health to get to the core of the problem.
