Traditional Old Style Hawaiian Lomi Lomi Massage is an open-handed flowing technique which treats the entire body as a whole. Originating in ancient Polynesia, the healing practice of Lomi Lomi has its roots in a tradition which is hundreds of years old. Lomi Lomi means to “knead or to squeeze and to make soft”.
Traditionally mothers “Lomi’d” their child from birth, especially the child’s stomach and feet, using primarily coconut oil which is one of the most healing natural substances on this planet. Lomi Lomi in its most traditional style is practiced entirely with the open hand; long strokes relax and release tension, allowing healing energy to cleanse the meridians and energetic pathways of the body. Life force energy or Mana comes through the practitioner’s hands and flows throughout the entire being on every level, right down to the cellular construct.
Old Style Lomi Lomi is an endless movement of flowing whole-body strokes combined with the “laying on of hands”. The strokes are continuous, rhythmic and ultimately hypnotic which brings the mind to a place of absolute stillness. This sanctuary of the quiet mind is where true healing manifests.
Old Style Lomi Lomi is much more than a massage, it is a holistic practice which transforms the recipient in ways which go far beyond the body and mind. I invite you to experience the transformative power of Lomi Lomi and the spirit of Aloha. Traditional Old Style Lomi Lomi Massage is $100 for 1 hour, and $120 for 1½ hours.
Traditional Old Style Lomi Lomi is the direct family lineage of Hawaiian Kahu Sherman Dutroit, which he has passed exclusively to Dawn Charlton. I was first inspired to learn Lomi Lomi when I was in Maui in 2001, however the right opportunity didn’t come into my life until 2008 when I was introduced to Dawn’s work by a mutual friend. When I first looked at Dawn’s website I knew that I had found the right teacher and have since studied all three levels of Lomi Lomi with Dawn.
