The Hawaiian LomiLomi

The Hawaiian LomiLomi is a very profound form of massage. Some call it „Loving hands“. In the shamanic old knowledge LomiLomi is not just a physical experience, it facilitates healing on the mental, emotional and spiritual levels as well. The tender movements and the flowing strokes combined with lots of love, assists in the letting go of old patterns and behaviours that cause limitations and which are stored in the cells of our body. So the LomiLomi enables to release blockages at the same time giving the energy new direction.

My Kahuna Malie (healer in hawaiian) practise an ancient traditional LomiLomi for more than 20 years. She learned from Aunty Margaret, the first woman who teached to non Hawaiian. In Malie’s understanding LomiLomi is about the past and the future and getting in touch with death, death is seen as something ends and something new is starting. The Hawaiians view all aspects of the body as one and believe that the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual are all part of the “whole” self – when healing is effected on one level, all levels are affected. The practitioner does not heal but is the facilitator for the healing. The Huna philosophie assumps that everything seeks harmony and love. Her whole message in massage is to love the body and just working with the heart.

I choose the therapeutical oil essence of Lily Koi, the passionfruit flower (picture). A complex blossom that made this mindblowing experience for all senses unforgettable.
