How is the lomi lomi massage performed? The lomi lomi massage should only be performed by professional masseurs who are perfectly familiar with the manipulation techniques that characterize it.

Before the start of the session, the masseur should carry out a preliminary interview with the same. During the interview, the masseur will question the individual in such a way as to frame his physical, mental and emotional state and then be able to develop a specific treatment for his problems, focused on certain parts of the body rather than others. According to the knowledge of the Hawaiian tradition, feelings and emotions are concentrated in specific areas of the body: for example, feelings such as love and pain would be concentrated at the level of the heart; emotions such as panic and excitement, even if opposite, would be localized in the area occupied by the stomach and so on. Performing the lomi lomi massage Once the possibility of proceeding with the execution of the massage has been established and once the problems that the individual suffers from have been identified, the masseur can start the session.
Just before the actual lomi lomi massage begins, heated basalt stones can be used to promote and increase the individual's relaxation. The massage begins on the stomach starting from the nape of the neck, then the back, arms, legs, hands and feet are massaged; finally, the individual is placed on his stomach and the manipulations are resumed also on the front side of the body.
The manipulation techniques used in lomi lomi massage can be performed with fingers, hands, elbows and arms, but also with knees, feet and even sticks.
Land the same heated stones used before the treatment can also be used during its execution. The movements carried out by the masseur are deep and cyclic and aim to "mimic" the movement of the ocean waves that lap the islands of Hawaii. The lomi lomi massage can be performed by two masseurs who stimulate different areas of the body at the same time.
The lomi lomi massage also involves the use of natural oils and butters, used to facilitate the flow on the body of the individual. To perform the lomi lomi massage, the body of the latter is covered with a towel or cloth; the areas to be massaged are gradually discovered and then covered at the end of the manipulation.
To perform the lomi lomi massage at its best, the surrounding environment must be calm and peaceful, often scented essences and background music are also used to increase relaxation.

These traditions have not been transmitted outside the Hawaiian islands, or in any case they have been minimally, therefore it is difficult to undergo a lomi lomi massage you will witness this "dance" of the masseur.
