What is Lomi Lomi?
Lomi Lomi is a traditional Hawaiian style of massage that has been practiced by the natives for centuries. It is known as the loving hands massage. Lomi Lomi is powerful and works gently yet deeply on the body. It uses long continuous flowing strokes to relax the entire being. This rhythmic modality does not only work one body part at a time like a standard massage. The practitioner works several parts of the body at one time allowing the client to completely relax by not allowing the mind to focus on one area. If you have never experienced a Lomi Lomi massage I invite you to do so at Main St. Massage & Spa!
What you should know before your massage.
You will be draped with a sarong instead of a sheet or towel like other massages. This specific draping technique allows for access to all the areas to be reached with no interruption. You will ALWAYS be appropriately covered during your session. The practitioner will use forearms instead of hands to allow for better flow. Yours and the therapists boundaries are always protected at Main St. Massage & Spa. There are no sheets in Lomi Lomi, only the table. This allows for working under the clients body for continuous movement.
Lomi Lomi is not confined to a one hour session. It is normal for a session to run from 1.5 to 2 hours long so please plan accordingly!
