Lomi Lomi massage is a traditional Polynesian technique that bears repeating. Literally. That's because the term lomi lomi (or "lomilomi") means "massage," but in this case it refers to a spiritual technique based on the Hawaiian philosophy of "huna," and how it relates to our bodies.
In strict terms, huna means "secret," but it has come to define a broad and complex set of beliefs that encompass philosophy, teachings, bodywork practices such as massage, and energy flow. The goal is to find harmony in every aspect of our lives.
Similarly, Hawaiian lomi lomi massage -- or "Loving Hands" massage -- defies easy definition, because the ritualistic therapy is, according to most practitioners, such an instinctive, free-form technique.
