Availability: Wednesday and Thursday afternoons
Known as the ‘Loving hands’ massage, lomi lomi is a unique healing massage derived from the ancient Polynesians and more specifically the master healers of Hawaii. It is deeply relaxing and nurturing and particularly powerful for those really in need of sanctuary, deep rest and/or suffering from burnout or fatigue.
Lomi lomi uses long, sweeping, wave-like movements across the entire body which can swiftly take the client into very deep states of rest and rejuvenation. The therapist often uses their forearms and upper arms to perform these long, flowing, rhythmic strokes. After the massage people often report feeling deeply relaxed and nurtured, yet incredibly energised.
