In traditional Hawaii, healing can not happen without healing the spirit.

Overall, the mind, body, soul, and nature are all connected to our health. 

The land, trees, oceans, and winds affect the mind, body, and spirit through the energy the soul feels from the Islands. 

Keeping the peace between self, family, the land, and the gods are crucial to living a prosperous life. That is the traditional healing philosophy, harmony between man, nature, and the gods. 

Importance of maintaining the land is to help the health of people.

In the realm of traditional healing in Hawaii, when we break the law or are involved in some kind of evil act- that is when we become ill. 

The Ancient Practice of Lomi Lomi Massage Here on Oahu

Lomi Lomi Massage is designed to create a connection between mind and spirit. Let us break down the meaning of Lomi Lomi. 

It is known to be a “Loving Hands” massage. Lomi stands for “to take a turn, to shift”,  and “Lomi Lomi” is said for emphasis. 

To shift is a sacred shift within you that is inspired by the healing kahuna. 

The Kahuna is here to help heal and rejuvenate. 

Kahuna Lomi Lomi is a physical therapist who is proficient in the massage. Often they are chosen in childhood, at an age as young as five. If a parent felt a “healing spirit” within their child, they would often send them to a Kahuna, where they would spend fifteen to twenty years learning herbs, anatomy, and other treatments. 

Nonetheless, mastery takes a lifetime. 

Before the massage, the Kahuna will go out and pray while picking the herbs that are needed for the treatment. It is crucial that no one distracts them and breaks the vibration of the process.

In ancient Hawaii, the healing practice of Lomi Lomi Massage was used for:

  • Luxury and aid in digestion by the ruling chiefs.
  • A form of restorative massage within the family.
  • By the Masters of Hawaii in Martial Arts.
  • By Native Healers.

The Lomi Lomi Massage Method Explained:

The Lomi Lomi Massage is said to be one of the most relaxing massages. 

The method of Lomi Lomi Massage is to work deeply into the body and muscles with continuous and flowy strokes. The Kahuna Lomi Lomi will also use nut oils and elements of prayer during the treatment. 

Music and the sound of waves is also a powerful tool used during Lomi Lomi Massage to choreograph the flow of the hands during massage.

This is a full-body massage which includes: Arms and Hands, Legs and Feet, Neck and Back, as well as the Stomach and Buttocks.
