Benefits of Hawaiian Massage
If you enjoy the gentle touch of massage, but would like to add a special spiritual sprinkling, then you might like to try Hawaiian massage.
Hawaiian massage is a traditional therapy that has been used since ancient times for relaxation, restoration, energy healing, and to treat a range of illnesses and issues.
What happens in a Hawaiian massage?
Hawaiian massage is a more spiritual or energy-focused massage than most modern therapies. So not only will your therapist use their hands, arms, elbows, and knees to apply gentle strokes to the body as most massage therapies do, they will also delve into your entire energy system to bring about healing. In this way, Hawaiian massage is a form of bodywork, introducing spirituality and energy healing and incorporating touch for health and healing.
In this way, Hawaiian massage is much more than a massage. It becomes a free-flowing dance to music, as the therapist sensitively and intuitively massages and moves to a gentle rhythm. So you feel not only physical relief and relaxation, but emotional and spiritual renewal and reconnection as well.
Before the massage begins, your therapist might say a prayer or a blessing, and ask you to set an intention for the session.
Bear in mind that Hawaiian or lomilomi massage is different to Kahuna bodywork, which also has its roots in Hawaii. Our article What is Kahuna Bodywork? offers a great introduction into the therapy, interviewing Kia'i Weber from the Australian College of Kahuna Sciences.
