Lomi Lomi Nui
Let yourself be enveloped by the powerful ocean waves of Hawaii and the “Aloha”, the joyful life energy of the present, and the loving breath of life.
Lomi Lomi Nui is a massage done with fluidity and grace. It recalls the movement of water, the actions of the ocean, the energy of the constant and powerful swell. It incorporates circular movements done mainly with the forearms. Hawaiians used this massage for healing, transformation, life passages and more. Attentive to oneself in the present moment, it is in abandonment that real work is possible.
Performed through listening, Lomi Lomi Nui is profound, intuitive and transformational.

Lomi Lomi Nui is a massage with dance
The movements of a Lomi Lomi Nui massage are continuous, fluid strokes, flowing seamlessly from one area of the body to the next, alternating techniques, using the forearms and the palms of the hands with seamless transitions. The hands and forearms are used, with some intentional pressure, creating a relaxing environment for both the mind and body, rather than targeting a specific physical problem.
At the start of each lomi lomi nui massage, I connect with you by performing KAHI and the “KA ALE LEAU (Ka alé léo) “The "Flying”. (Wikipedia) Flying brings energy (Mana) to the person who practices it and will be transmitted to the recipient through conscious touch. “KA ALE LEAU (Ka alé léo) is a dance (Hula). FLYING is an infinite movement performed with grace; it is the basic principle of Hawaiian massage.
to Note: draping
Because of the long, flowing and fluid movements, Lomi Lomi Nui is performed using a generous quantity of natural oil while the client lays on top of a fitted sheet (of the massage table on top of a heated pad) that does not absorb the oil, therefore no top sheet is used.
Instead, special draping is adjusted during the treatment, using sheets or towels used for the areas of privacy as needed.
For oil-on-body massage, due to the direct application of oil, the client is either completely undressed without undergarments or a thong, covered strategically by the linen.
Below is a chart showing some draping options.
Before each session, we will discuss your preference to ensure clarity and discretion. At any time during the massage, the cover can be changed to cover more according to your needs and desires.
