The origin of Lomi
The Lomi Lomi massage originated on the Hawaiian islands. Surrounded by the endless Pacific Ocean, shaped by a life in harmony and with the rhythms and elemental forces of nature, the flowing, the carrying, the enveloping, the protective and also the powerful nature of this massage is understandable and it seems logical that this way of massaging and touching has shown itself to the people of Hawaii in particular.
Originally, this full-body massage is a healing work of the Hawaiian families. However, it was also practised as a ritual transition on various occasions and in sacred places.
Hawaiian families often had their own style, which they passed on from generation to generation. This also explains why the Lomi Lomi massage is performed very differently (we Swabians know this principle of difference well from our countless Maultaschen variations. :-). On the Hawaiian islands and occasionally on the mainland, Lomi Lomi is even performed with sticks and feet.
In this country, Hawaiian massage is mainly done with fingers, hands and forearms. And this is also my way of giving the Hawaiian massage.
