Lomi Lomi

Lomi Lomi is a Hawaiian term that simply means "massage". It is native to the Polynesian culture born of the philosophy "Huna", which is based on a shamanistic culture practiced in all the Pacific Islands, based on observation of the movements of nature and its rhythms. A fundamental theory of Huna is that every creature seeks harmony and love. This is why the Lomi Lomi could be translated into more wisely "loving hands massage".

It aims to encourage the flow of energy flow between the practitioner and client.
