Lomi Lomi 1By Pooja Bhaginari

Relaxation is one of the things we all crave for from time to time. Massages provide us with one of the best ways to relax after a hard day or just enable us to enjoy our day in its fullest. One of the latest trends in massage techniques comes from the island of Hawaii – and it is called Lomi-Lomi massage. For centuries Hawaiians have been using Lomi-Lomi to relax and fortunately for all of us the technique is spreading throughout the world giving us a unique opportunity to experience the secrets of Lomi-Lomi massage techniques.

Lomi-Lomi massage is one of the best relaxation techniques in the world because of the way the massage therapist is dedicated to bringing us relief. Using the palms of their hands, forearms, elbows as well as knees and feet the practitioners have to be well trained in the way of Lomi-Lomi. The result of their training is the lavish experience of luxury mixed with blissfulness that is translated from their body parts to ours. In addition, sticks and stones may be used to bring about the relief that can barely be matched by any other massage technique.

In traditional Hawaiian Lomi-Lomi was used as a healing practice by local healers. The benefits for digestion are an additional bonus that comes with this massage. But the most important part the Lomi-Lomi massage brings is the stress relief. This is because of the deep connection between the practitioner and client that is prompted by the nature of the technique – in order for us to let someone use their knees and even feet on us we have to be completely stress-free – and this is the central part Lomi-Lomi is trying to achieve.

Of all the massage techniques out there, this is definitely one of the exotic ones that you have experience if only just to tell your friends about it.
