Whether slow or vigorous, Hawaiian Lomilomi is gentle but deep, smoothly relaxing or intensely therapeutic, depending on the client's needs. This traditional form of Hawaiian massage balances the body's energy in a non-invasive manner that is designed to leave the subject feeling renewed.
Lomilomi works with not only the physical body, but the underlying energy patterns which can affect the mind and spirit as well. Lomilomi integrates treatment of physical and energetic dysfunctions in a way that is calming, soothing and invigorating.
A Lomilomi treatment can be quick and vigorous, slow and gentle, deep and powerful, or any combination of the types. Each Lomilomi is unique, both to the individual and to the appointment. No two Lomilomi treatments are the same. There are many similarities in the Lomilomi to Polarity Therapy, to Deep Tissue massage, to Janet Travell's Trigger Point work.
