    Lomilomi Massage

    Relax & Unwind

    Lomilomi is the word used today to mean "massage therapist" or "Hawaiian Massage." In the Hawaiian language, the word used traditionally, called Lomi, means "to knead, to rub, or soothe, to work in and out, as the paws of a contented cat. The early Polynesian settlers brought their own form of massage and it evolved to become something uniquely Hawaiian. It was practiced by everyone, from child to chief. As an indigenous practice, we value it.
