Lomi Lomi is a traditional Hawaiian massage – a spiritual and gentle treatment that will leave you feeling peaceful, relaxed and at harmony.
About the Treatment
What to expect…
- What is Lomi Lomi?
“Lomi Lomi,” is traditionally used to mean “to rub, press or squeeze,” in Hawaii, used to describe the type of flowing strokes and kneading movements that the therapist will use. This treatment is based on the belief that that memories are stored in cells of the body and this massage helps to rid of adverse behaviours and patterns.
Lomi Lomi is a holistic healing tradition beyond just a simple massage. The therapist will use their palms, forearms, fingers, knuckles and elbows to create large movements and pressure. Often dance-like strokes are used along with flowing and large movements.
- Why choose Lomi Lomi?
For a beautiful ancient, nurturing and healing massage, Lomi Lomi is the perfect treatment choice. This option is recommended if you are wanting some relaxation but also a relief of physical and mental stress whilst experiencing something unique and different. The Hawaiian body work is also useful for anyone experiencing back pain, neck tension or poor circulation.

Before the treatment, the therapist will learn about any medical history, about what you expect from the treatment and how you want to feel as a result. This will ensure that the treatment is specific to your needs and you can get the most out of the process.
You will be left alone to undress (underwear should remain), and then lie on the massage table (with assistance by the therapist if required). Traditionally, Lomi Lomi massage requires minimal towel coverage, as the therapist works with large parts of the body at the same time. However, please do ensure that you are comfortable during the treatment and communicate with your therapist about any concerns.
Traditionally, a Lomi Lomi massage will begin with the therapist being still and resting their palms on your back. The massage itself will be specific to you, as the therapist will work alongside your body and alter movements from long and light strokes to invigorating deeper pressure movements. The massage may also involve movement and turning of specific joints and stretching of the limbs. Traditionally the massage involves the use of oils, however this will depend on your therapist.
After your treatment you will feel soothed, relaxed and tranquil. We advise to drink plenty of water in order to aid removal of toxins that will have been released and to rehydrate the body. Alcohol should also be avoided. Following the massage, you should continue to relax and if feeling sore, a hot bath is highly recommended.
Please note: All our therapists can perform the summer massage. Your summer massage can be combined with all massage treatments so simply choose your massage
type and leave an additional comment "summer massage" on the booking confirmation page.
