The Hawaii Islands are, in the collective imagination, a dream destination.
The breathtaking beauty of the landscapes remains impressed on the memory. Each of us daydreamed of diving into the crystal clear waters of the ocean that surrouds them and being welcomed with flowers garlands and the renowned Polynesian smile.
Hawaii definitely deserve to be called "a paradise", and this is due also to the indigenous people and its philosophy of life.
The environment in which the Polynesian culture developed, molded in a very original way the view of existence: the nature elements, which find their expression at the highest levels of beauty, power and vigour here, dominate every aspect of daily life.
To approach the Lomi Lomi Massage, it means to welcome the change that requires the abandonment of all resistance and prejudice.
Water is one of the predominant elements in the life of Polynesians. It is not only the source of life, but also of destruction and renewal, in a continuous vital cycle that is well represented by the constant motion of the waves.
The Lomi Lomi is inspired by the water and its embrace, its vital energy and its endless movement.
Huna deeply permeates the way Polynesian people perceive the reality and beyond.
It is a century old philosophy that resembles the eastern ones, but which has developed a deep sense of belonging and interdependency with everything that exists, an indissoluble bond with the universe.
Seven principles are set out in the Huna, on which the entire approach to the reality of the Hawaiians is based:
The Lomi Lomi Massage recalls the movement of the sea.
Its manipulations are studied to replicate its enveloping motion and generate a sense of warm welcome, similar to the one given by the maternal womb that protects life.
The Kahuna shamans, custodians of Huna's secrets, created the Lomi Lomi Massage in order to integrate the healing rituals, which are seen as a passage through different levels of awareness, to finally reach a full recognition of one's vital force, connected to the universe force limitlessly.
Everything in the universe looks for harmony and love.
"Lomi Lomi", in the Hawaiian language, means "loving hands". The giver performs the massage deeply involving muscles and tissues, with a constant movement resembling the sea that nourishes the body and facilitates an absolute relax.
Since the Lomi Lomi Massage involves different parts of the body simultaneously, with an uninterrupted flow of movements, the receiver should wear only underpants/panties and the covering with a towel is limited to the genital area.
The treatment is performed on the massage bed without the sheet to lay on. Abundant oil is used, poured directly on the massage bed as well to allow maximum fluidity of movement.
Since it performs many joint mobilisations, please notify the giver about any kind of health problems regarding bones, muscles or joints prior to receiving the massage.
The massage session usually lasts one hour and a half, but it can be shorter upon request.
