Hawaiian Massage – What is it?

Hawaiian massage is the form of therapy whose history dates back to ancient times. It’s one of the most physically and spiritually powerful massages, also known for its healing effects! It maintains a balance between mind and body using some unique massage techniques. Belonging to the Hawaiian Restorative Healing System, the essence of the Hawaiian full-body massage is based on the ‘compassionate touch’.

 

TYPES OF HAWAIIAN MASSAGE:

There are two very popular types of Hawaii massage:

1- Ka Huna Massage:

This is a one-of-its-kind massage that uses a combination of movements and music. The Ka Huna massage practitioner creates a natural rhythm and sync inside the body. Rightfully known as “the healers”, the Hawaiian full body massage therapists use elbows, forearms, and hands to harmonize the rhythm of the body, mind, and soul. This is used with the massage movements. You may be asked about your physical, emotional, and mental health beforehand, this is done to ensure that the massage is tailored to your needs.

 

2- Lomi Lomi Massage:

This type of Hawaii massage is known for incorporating love, respect, and compassion to the client by the hands of a practitioner. An expert Hawaii massage therapist stimulates the energy flow by creating a change in your spiritual, emotional, and physical state. The Lomi Lomi massage is quite popular around the world owing to the rejuvenating and relaxing effect on mind and body. The practitioner will provide a Hawaiian full body massage using hands, fingers, knees, elbows, and, sometimes, sticks and stones on different body parts..
