Lomi Lomi

What a Lomi Lomi Massage Is Like  


A typical lomi lomi session begins with a prayer and may involve meditation and focused breathing exercises.


Although practitioners use a variety of techniques and tailor each treatment to the needs of the client, lomi lomi typically involves rhythmic, flowing massage strokes which are meant to clear blockages in the circulation of energy through the body. The therapist typically uses his or her forearms to make long massage strokes.

       

Other lomi lomi massage strokes involve a circular or chopping motion, gentle pounding, percussive cupping, and/or fingertip tapping.

          

Draping During a Lomi Lomi Massage
