Lomi Lomi Massage Video
Hawaiian massage therapy is also called Lomi Lomi massage. Lomi Lomi means basically "loving hands" and I think it definitely characterizes this massage style from Hawaii in its very essence.
Handed down from Polynesian ancestors and healers, Hawaiian massage has become very popular over the last few years. Different families used different techniques, so there is not just one Hawaiian massage style. It was used inside the family to treat minor aches and pains, but was also given to the Hawaiian chiefs to promote proper digestion and well being.
What connects all these styles is the continuous flow of the techniques applied. Whether you use palms, forearms, fingers, knuckles, elbows etc., it leaves the client with a feeling that the strokes are one continuous move from begin to end of the massage session.
If you have never experience lomi lomi massage, then you need to do that. When I first saw it a few years back, I was amazed by the elegance of this massage technique. It reminded me much on the flow that you can see in martial arts techniques like Tai Qui.
Hawaiian massage teaches a lot about harmony of different body parts and an awareness of the body as a whole. This is a great achievement, which sometimes gets lost in other massage styles.
But it is not just a physical pleasure, this massage technique is also intended to influence, relax and de-stress your mental, emotional and even spiritual being.

Footnote: Massage Oils that dissolve in water are a great invention. They come either scented or unscented. There is Vanilla-Coconut, Lavender, Peppermint. I prefer unscented, so I bought that. It feels a little bit different than traditional massage oil, but not much. If you get it on your sheets, pillows and clothes, just put them in the wash. Anyway it works great.
