Combining Lomi Lomi with Hot stones takes the practice to a deeper level of relaxation
Lomi Lomi massage is an ancient Hawaiian practice, passed down via lineage through a teacher, in Mia's case, she has studied under a number of teachers and lineage holders over the past 8 years and seeks to bring her understanding of trauma informed therapy from the Western world to inform her in her practice of this very special traditional practice with full reverence for its fullness as a practice as it stands.
Lomi Lomi works on the mind, body and spirit, it is a complete treatment covering prevention, therapy and rehabilitation. Lomi Lomi is a cost effective and safe treatment for anxiety, depression, pain management, sleep problems, trauma related issues as well as supporting a shorter recovery time for physical injury while also avoiding risks of side effects.
In Lomi Lomi massage, the muscles, fascia, joints and bones are in focus, enhancing ones mobility and flexibility along with digestion while enhancing ones overall sense of wellbeing, confidence and increasing serotonin and dopamine levels while decreasing cortisol levels and stress.

WHAT WILL A SESSION BE LIKE?
On a practical level, a Lomi Lomi Massage session will begin with a time to check in and to decipher what you best need.
You will then get undressed in private space and lay on the table face down with a large sarong covering your body.
Lomi Lomi Massge itself is a hot oil massage combining long strokes with shorter strokes in a meditational fashion. Over time during the massage experience, through the repetition of touch, and the pressure at the Meridian points and through the lymphatic system, the body, mind and spirit relaxes and replenishes. Lomi Lomi, different to many other massage styles, is a complete therapy, embracing the full human being and life experience and holding space for the inner wisdom to come through also.
As water gently and repetatively washes against the rocks moulding them into new shapes, so Lomi Lomi uses repetition to bring change and release.
These releases can be physical, as with injury or in aligning the lymphatic system, they can be emotional or they can be felt as spiritual release-often times, all three will occur to varying degrees.
To express what Lomi Lomi is, is a difficult thing, once one has experienced it, they then will often comment that they understand why the fullness of the experience could not be explained cohesively- In Sherman Dudiot's (now Raman Daas') words
