Rainbow Falls Hilo, HawaiiWhat is Sacred Lomi?

Open Heart Bodywork

Sacred Lomi (lomilomi) is spiritually-oriented, heart-centered massage. It invites transformation and healing. Physically, it's quite different from Swedish massage, with longer, more flowing strokes. Many say it feels like beautiful waves washing over them.

Lomilomi is a healing art practiced by native Hawaiians. There are many unique forms, developed and passed down by family tradition through history. Part of Hawaiian healing is lomilomi bodywork (lomi means knead).

Sacred Lomi derives from Hawaiian Temple Bodywork, a distinctive style practiced by Hawaiian kahunas (shamans) as a sacred rite of passage. This work supports personal transformation—dying to the old and being reborn to the new. It is experiential, not generally outcome-oriented or directed toward particular bodily issues. The receiver of Sacred Lomi may experience images and visions, a release of emotion, sleep or nothing of particular note. The work is deeply relaxing. Whatever you experience, trust that it is perfect for you at this time. The effect of Sacred Lomi continues to unfold long after the session is over.

Because of the depth and intent of Sacred Lomi, it is recommended that you allow yourself some time to integrate after your session. Ideally you can go home or to another quiet place, free of responsibilities for at least a few hours or the rest of the day. Now is the time to relax, read inspiring material, journal, enjoy nature, sip water or juice, eat delicious healthy food, watch the world go by or just take a nap.

For a Sacred Lomi session we need:

  • At least 1 1/2 and possibly up to 2 hours
  • Willingness to get oily, even your hair
  • Willingness to receive massage with minimal draping and no breast cover when you are face up
  • Openness to the process and style, just allowing each session to be whatever it is for you
  • IF you shave, clean shaven
