The Ritual behind Lomi-Lomi
The Lomi Lomi or temple massage lasts for about 2 hours.
As family and nature are holy to Hawaiians, they pray for their support and blessing for all important occasions. As logic commands, this also happens at the beginning of a Lomi-Lomi, the Hawaiians‘ holy massage ritual, in order to gather their own power during the upcoming intensive journey – the inner power, the touch, the energy that takes effect from head to toe. Hereby, a very intense breathing technique is used and energy is released. This energy flows and encourages the receiver to engage himself/herself more deeply in the body work at hand.
The practitioner’s top priority is to attune entirely to the client who is strongly sensitized throughout the time of complete relaxation. Lomi-Lomi is a full body massage that consciously leaves out the genital area.
Let the rhythm of movement lead you to your inner world, and experience your true self and where your fears are keeping you from being who you are. Enjoy the feeling of finally letting everything go that heavily burdens you.
Lomi-Lomi is hard to explain. It has to be tried, experienced, felt by yourself, as everyone experiences a Lomi-Lomi massage differently.
Lomi-Lomi reminds of a mixture of Ayurveda and Thai massage and may remind you of familiar techniques such as Rolfing, acupressure, reflexology and manual therapy. There are also elements of laying on of hands. In the end, all massage techniques originate from the same source and seek to free the recipient from burdens of the past, allowing him/her to feel comfortable again in their own skin. In Lomi-Lomi, everything flows together. J
