Lomi Lomi massage is a traditional Hawaiian massage technique that is known for its fluid movements. The massage is usually performed using long and fluid movements that resemble the movements of waves. Such movements induce a deep state of relaxation and serenity, reduce stress and increase overall well-being.
The nature of Hawaii, its philosophy, history and community approach are reflected in the Lomi Lomi Nui massage. This massage is based on the spirit of freedom, trust and connection with nature. The awareness of the nature of Hawaiian massage goes beyond words and technique, it is difficult for someone from our cultural background to understand.
What is more important in Lomi Lomi: intuition or technique?
It was once pointed out to me that a Lomi Lomi massage should be structured and that no other techniques should be included. In short, you have to follow a certain order and types of techniques. Do you feel the stiffness?
Of course, I completely disagree with this statement.
The only thing a Lomi Lomi massage therapist should do is to trust what is happening now and flow in their work. Of course, it is important to maintain a certain structure in Lomi Lomi massage. However, it is important to step out of that structure into freedom and to trust what comes to us, what flows through our hands, to the being who has come for the massage.
When another technique comes, we are not to go back in our heads and think about whether we are using other massage techniques. We are to be in full confidence in what flows through our hands and what we can give to the being who has come for a massage.
The quality of a Lomi Lomi massage is not only at the technical level, but more importantly at the level of the connection between the source and the being who has come for the massage. This connection is crucial for energy flow and healing.
When do we achieve freedom?
Freedom is achieved when we complete the massage course and open the door to freedom. Completing a Lomi Lomi massage course is the moment when we enter the world with what we have learned during the course. We go out into the world with what we have received and the quality we want to give to others.
The Lomi Lomi massage practitioner is a kind of intermediary, connecting the spiritual and the material worlds, flowing from the Higher Self and Source to the person who has trusted us and come for a massage.
Trust and flow.
What should a Lomi Lomi massage therapist do? Trust in what is happening now and flow in their work.
Of course, it is important to maintain a certain structure in Lomi Lomi massage, but it should not be treated as a rigid frame that cannot be transgressed. Structure should be seen as a support, not a limitation.
When another technique comes up, we should not go back in our heads and think about whether it is appropriate or not. We should rely on our instinct and intuition, which are key to performing an effective Lomi Lomi massage. It is our intuition and ability to adapt to the needs of those who come to us that allows us to ensure the quality of Lomi.
Lomi Lomi massage is a quality of energy flow.
It is worth remembering that Lomi Lomi massage is not just about technique, but more importantly about the connection with the being who has come for a massage.
It is the quality of connection between the source and the person who has come for the massage. It is a quality of energy flow that can only be achieved by trusting what comes to us and flowing with that current.
The conclusion is that Lomi Lomi massage is a technique and freedom combined, you have to be open to what comes and trust your intuition. This combination is key to the effectiveness and quality of Lomi Lomi massage.
