Hawaiian Massage: Heartworks Lomi Lomi

Lomi Lomi is a holistic and sacred massage founded and created on the Polynesian Island of Hawaii. It enables the physical and energetic systems of the body to flush out, transform and revitalise themselves as the soft tissue is gently but firmly loosened, separated and loved.

The ancient Hawaiian tradition used prayer and cleansing with salt water in each treatment. Wrong thoughts were as crucial to correct as physical problems. Individual ties to any negative belief, person or place also corrected. A higher power and spiritual guidance always called upon as Lomi Lomi encompasses the Mind, Body and Spirit.

Each Lomi Lomi session is a whole body massage from head to foot, covering both front and back of the torso and limbs. Due to the nature of long body strokes, the client is asked to remove all items of clothing for an uninterrupted flow. At all times the client can feel safe and secure, covered with a tucked towel to ensure comfort and modesty.
