Lomi Lomi - Hawaiian healing
To experience, receive and learn how to give lomi lomi has touched me very deeply. This beautiful sacred Hawaiian bodywork is all about Aloha (love, breath of life) and aims to provide deep healing. The process starts with Oli (Chants), Pule (prayer, intention) and contains sjamanic elements.
Receiving lomi lomi in this way is not a trivial thing and one who wants this should ask themselves if they believe that there is more between heaven and earth. This treatment is about letting go of old pain, connecting to yourself and your ancestry, offering forgiveness and experiencing deep gratitude for life.
The massage comes with wavelike full body strokes which is why a lot of oil is used and the receiver lies naked with a sarong covering the genitals. Given the level of intimicy and the spiritual nature of this treatment, please reflect if this is for you at this time. Maybe you may want to try a different type of massage before receiving this one.
Shortly after booking you will receive questions to reflect on as preparation.
2 hours of lomi lomi costs 160 euro. You can book here.
Lomi Lomi Advanced - Bonewashing and Joint work
In lomi lomi there are also advanced techniques aimed to free your body from 'pilikia' which roughly translates as 'the troubles', in other words trauma that has stagnated in your cells and the tissues of your body. Your Joints and bones can also hold trauma and the Hawaiian tradition has ways to help clear this out and create more space in the hips, knees, shoulders and wrists by mobilising them, looking for the limit and holding there. The bonewashing techniques involves working on the periosteum covering your boness. Neither of these techniques require you to take off your clothes although it is easier to work on the skin in the case of bonewashing and can be done during a regular lomi lomi session. As with all lomi lomi traditionally is preceeded by Oli (chants) and Pule (prayer). Ensure to wear comfortable clothing. Depending on the issue you would like most to be handled these techniques can be incorporated in a regular lomi lomi with oil session, whichever is your preference. You can book here.
Lomi Lomi Hapai
The most soothing and nourishing form of lomi lomi was designed for pregnant woman. It is given while the expecting mother is laying on her side, supported by pillows and given extra comfort by blankets. It will allow you to drift away, relax from some of the typical physical tensions and feel deeply connected with your baby. A truely blissful moment for both mother and unborn child while being carried and swayed by waves of relaxation.
Because of the gentle and nourishing nature of this treatment and the more discrete position it is also very suitable for people who've experienced trauma and may have difficulties allowing others to touch them.
Please note you need to be 12 weeks pregnant with no indications of pregnancy complication to receive this treatment. In case you would like to wear a bottom, please bring a thong that can bear oils stains. A lomi lomi hapai takes about 1,5 hour and costs 115 euro - you can book here.
