Lomi Lomi is a restorative Hawaiian massage that works gently, yet deeply into the muscles with continuous, flowing strokes. This allows the recipient to relax due to the hypnotic effect, bringing your mind to a place of absolute stillness. Touch, rhythm and ancient wisdom come together, allowing healing to occur.
