For Fathers Day how about treating day to a unique beach-like spa experience that he will always remember? Healing Haven Massage and Wellness offers a custom Lomi-Lomi massage with extensive detail that he would get nowhere else. Lomi-Lomi is a Hawaiian technique of massage using the forearms in a unique style that is comparable to dance. Historically this massage came from the Polynesian settlers; it is an indigenous practice often seen as being sacred which has evolved over hundreds of years. At Healing Haven Massage and Wellness a special Coconut-Lime Oil is used during this massage experience to give a tropical feeling, benefiting all the senses. This specialty massage is considered a part of traditional Hawaiian medicine and was passed down for generations until the early 70’s, when Hawaiian teachers began to share this technique to others. Lomi-Lomi comes in a variety of styles and techniques, but all methods contain a traditional Hawaiian theme and feel, bringing a piece of paradise and a peace to the soul for the person receiving the session.
Through ancient tradition, Lomi-Lomi has long kept a spiritual application within the Massage which is believed to farther bring healing that is beyond mere physical healing. Those giving the massage would traditionally begin by saying a deep prayer. This massage brings about the concept of “aloha!” Aloha means love, unification and breath that promotes harmony and peace. Lomi-Lomi therapists are taught to practice Lomi-Lomi with love as the intention and focus to bring pure healing in a tropical setting.
