Lomilomi means “the loving touch,” a connection between heart, hand, and soul with the source of all life. It is an ancient Hawaiian concept of working the MANA, life force, of the body, mind, and soul of an individual.

To obtain the level of immediate and long-term healing necessary, the practitioner uses a multitude of massage techniques resembling Swedish and Esalen massage, Rolfing, Polarity Therapy, Acupressure, Hot Stones, Medicinal Herbs & Aromatherapy, and Laying on of Hands accompanied by an Action of Mind.

The purpose is to revive the body, to move blood and lymph, to open spasms and remove waste materials from muscles and connective tissue, and to communicate deep into the bones. It is at this level that all memory is stored from past traumas, injuries, or emotional links. It restores the body’s vigor, improves the nutrition of tissues, heightens metabolism, and relieves pain.
