    Lomilomi Massage

    Relax & Unwind

    Lomilomi is the word used today to mean "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 Polynesians settlers brought their own form of massage and it evolved to become something uniquely Hawaiiian. It was practiced by everyone, from child to chief. As an indigenous practice, we value it.
