Lomi Lomi massage originated in Polynesia which includes Hawaii and the islands of the South Pacific. The Kahunas that mastered the healing art of massage provided this service to the people. This type of massage has flowing movements spanning the entire body as if the practitioner and client are in a dance. The primary motions are performed with the forearms, palms, and thumbs. It is believed that a person’s energy is stored in the joints of the body. Lomi Lomi massage awakens this energy, clears blockages, and removes toxins. Coconut oil has been traditionally used for this style of massage. Though coconut oil can be very cooling and may not be utilized during the colder times of the year.
