Hawaiian Lomi Lomi Massage
Lomi Lomi massage is an ancient Hawaiian technique enveloping the body with fluid movements, which harmonize the vital energies of the four elements: earth, water, air and fire. Lomi Lomi originated in Hawaii where families used to routinely massage each other to preserve good health, strengthen the body and balance body, mind and spirit. The harmony between all the energies thus ensured a strong constitution and prevented disease.

It is an holistic treatment, ensuring that the nervous, venous and respiratory systems are balanced through toxin release and lymphatic drainage, helping to unblock and restore the body back to its natural state.
