Traditional Old Style Hawaiian Lomi Lomi Massage with its combination of long, flowing strokes and targeted trigger point therapy and acupressure points (of course they’re the English words for the technqiue), can break up the fibrous tissue that causes pain and increase blood flow to the muscle tissue, bringing with it oxygen and nutrients essential for new growth of normal muscle tissue.
It helps to lengthen muscles and increase function.
Because Traditional Old Style Hawaiian Lomi Lomi Massage focuses on the whole body and how muscles connect and support each other for healhty functioning, multiple sites of stress and strain can be relieved at the same time.
Once the body is relaxed, Traditional Hawaiian Lomi Lomi Massage techniques are used to focus on specific muscles that have not been fully functional.
Traditional Hawaiian Lomi Lomi as a Remedial Massage can help with:
Frozen or tight shoulders
Pain and tension between the shoulders
Neck pain on the side or back
Tight and sore lower back
A treatment plan over a number of visits will be develped with you as part of your consultation. Awakening muscles and increased function is usually achieved during a series of treatments, although you will experience healing after your first treatment.
But that's not the end of the story - Traditional Hawaiian Lomi Lomi Massage Therapists are always interested in the secret language of the body.
In our lifelong training - yes, it’s for life not just a “massage course” - we are taught that all physical experiences, that is tightness, injury, pain etc, are also manifestations of blocked energy from the grind of life.
Troubled relationships, lack of purpose, loneliness, confusion, stress, unhappiness, anger, past memories and so on - are all experienced in the physical body, which tell us more about the stories of your life and can help you to understand yourself and others better.
That's why a properly trained Traditional Hawaiian Lomi Lomi Therapist will always ask you about what's going on in your life, where you feel it in your body, how long you've been aware of it, how your mind feels and how your Spirit feels as well.
We're always interested in the total you - not just your physical parts. Our goal is to bring you back into the correct alignment - and that means a state of what we call Lokahi (unity) on a spiritual, mental, emotional and physical level.
In our traditional teachings they can't be separated. Your body has a story to tell, it's your story and learning your story can help you to heal yourself. It makes interesting reading.
