Lomi Lomi Nui

Andrew Brown - Westwood Therapies

1. How can Lomi Lomi Massage help me?

Lomi Lomi Massage is an ancient healing art that forms part of the Hawaiian Huna tradition of healing, self awareness and well-being. Lomi Lomi is traditionally used to help restore balance and release blockages from the physical and energetic bodies.

( A popular 2 hour option is ... '30 minutes Deep Tissue Massage for the whole back' ... 'followed by a deeply relaxing and nurturing 90 minute full body Lomi-Lomi treatment' )

2. How does Lomi Lomi Massage Therapy Differ from other types of massage?

Hawaiian Lomi Lomi (Kahuna) Massage & Training - Essential Bodywork

Lomi Massage/ Kahuna Bodywork

Lomi Lomi is a whole body, supportive, nurturing and intuitive massage which begins with a silent prayer for the healing and well-being of the recipient. Different areas of the body are massaged at the same time helping the mind relax and let-go, the underside of the body is massaged in combination with breath work and passive stretching to release physical, energetic and emotional tension.

3. Lomi Lomi Massage treatment has many benefits...

  • Helps gently harmonise the whole being, the treatment is performed within a deep healing space.

  • Gentle mobilisation of limbs and spine creates a profoundly relaxing and nurturing effect.

4. What happens during a Lomi Lomi Massage session?

Andrew Brown - Westwood Therapies

At the first appointment a short consultation is undertaken to discuss and highlight areas of physical and emotional tension. The massage is performed on a heated, massage couch with extra thick padding and electrically adjustable back and leg section to make you as comfortable as possible. A sarong is used to cover the body (paper pants can be provided). To begin with a silent prayer is offered followed by the inhaling of Frankincense essential oil vapour to open the airways. The massage then begins with warm oil drizzled over the whole body. Lomi Lomi massage is intuitive, covering the whole body with a combination of long and short rhythmic wave like strokes...using the forearm and hands...massaging under and over the body...with joint stretches and articulations. Deep breathing to help let go of tension is interspersed throughout the massage. If time allows an Indian Head and Face Massage is performed towards the end. The last ten minutes is used to help you settle and rest as deeply as possible, you are covered with a blanket and have hot towels placed over your head/face and left to rest quietly listening to relaxing music.

Shower facilities are available, please let me know in advance.

5. How many sessions will I need & how long are treatments?

Lomi Lomi can be enjoyed as often as you like... Lomi treatments can be 60, 90 or 120 minutes.
