Temple Lomi Lomi is a distinctive Hawaiian massage technique, celebrated for its holistic approach to healing. It integrates physical, mental, and spiritual elements, setting it apart from other lomilomi styles and massage practices
Key Features of Temple Lomi Lomi:
1. Long flowing strokes: Temple Lomi Lomi is known for its continuous, rhythmic, and flowing massage strokes that use the forearms, hands, and fingers. These strokes are designed to create a sense of harmony and balance in the body.
2. Underbody work: Unique to Temple Lomi Lomi is that the receiver is laying directly on the table which is coated in coconut oil, and this allows for simultaneous work on both sides of the body resulting in luxurious touch. Underbody work also enables work which con be profoundly deep while remaining soft.
3. Connection to nature: Practitioners of Temple Lomi Lomi incorporate elements of nature into the massage, using movements that mimic ocean waves, the wind, and other natural rhythms.
4. Spiritual and emotional healing: More than just physical manipulation, this technique seeks to release emotional and spiritual blockages, fostering well-being and personal transformation. It’s based on the belief that unresolved emotions can lead to physical tension
5. Breathing and energy work: Breathwork is an integral part of Temple Lomi Lomi. Practitioners may use their breath and guide the client’s breath to facilitate the release of tension and energy blockages.
6. Aloha spirit: The Aloha spirit is central to the practice of Temple Lomi Lomi. It emphasizes love, compassion, and respect for the person receiving the massage. The practitioner’s intention is to create a safe and nurturing space for healing.
7. Tradition and lineage: Temple Lomi Lomi is passed down through generations of teachers. I had the privilege of learning from Tom Cochran and Donna Jason, who were students of Kahuna Abraham Kawaii.
8. Minimal draping: Temple Lomi Lomi is performed with minimal draping which allows uninterrupted long weaving flows.
