Lomi Lomi is traditional Hawaiian Massage. It uses the forearms and hands in long flowing strokes all around the body, with the deeply present healing touch of Aloha. Aloha is a Hawaiian word meaning unconditional loving kindness.
Lomi Lomi invites the healing powers of nature. A rhythmical ocean wave, of varying speed and intensity, intuitively bringing in the energy of the elements: earth, air, fire, water.
The combination of the long continuous flowing strokes, occasionally working deeper into the muscle in some areas and moving joints, gives a deep energetic massage; helping release energetic blockages, tension and pain.
Two areas of the body are often massaged simultaneously, helping the receiver to let go and experience deep relaxation, harmony and often a sense of timelessness.
Lomi Lomi utilises Ha (breath in Hawaiian) and Pule (prayer), to create a sacred and spiritual element to the massage. Energy work is also integrated into the treatment.
Before the massage there is space for the client to share a little about what may be going on in their life at the moment, or something they wish to bring into the space to receive healing of some kind. The client is invited to set a healing intention before the massage.
Kahuna Harry Uhane Jim says “Lomi Lomi is a gift of spirit to humanity”. It is also an incredible gift that the Hawaiian Kauhunas (Medicine people, priests or ‘keepers of the wise and hidden secrets’) have shared this powerful healing work with us, and given their blessing for us to share it within the Western world. I am deeply honoured to be able to offer this within our community.
There are many benefits of Lomi Lomi which encompass body, mind, heart and soul. Here are a few of the potential benefits:
“I had my first experience of a Lomi Lomi massage with Emily and it was an extremely nourishing, healing experience, unlike any massage I’ve ever had. The experience was extremely varied, we began with a really lovely conversation / consultation which was a soothing way to drop in and become comfortable in the space. When the massage began, Emily opened the space with some beautiful singing / prayer which perfectly set the tone for a deeply relaxing experience. It felt like more of psychological, spiritual journey than simply a physical massage, and I found Emily’s presence to be simultaneously calming and powerful. I was honestly blown away at the end of it. I’ve had hundreds of massages and this was one of the best. I’m looking forward to having another and I strongly recommend trying Emily’s Lomi Lomi massage if you’re looking for a rejuvenating massage experience from someone who is at the top of her game. Thanks Emily!”

“Heaven… blissed out… No sense of me. Forever spacious. Tender, nurturing, nourishing. Worthy of love, care and attention. Luxuriating in it. Felt in the flow of life, open to possibilities. ‘I can do anything’. Not rigid, resistant to change as I have been most of my life”.

“I had a series of massages with Emily and really enjoyed them all. The touch always felt very caring and tender and the long slow strokes allowed my nervous system to really relax into each massage which helped the muscles to release without needing the pressure as firm as I usually like in massage. It felt like it worked on more than just the physical aspect, I felt emotional at times and felt the energy moving too. The tender care helped me to really feel valued and worthy of all the care and attention and this was very healing. I came away each time feeling lighter, floaty even, and yet at the same time grounded. Highly recommended.” Ian, Todmorden, March 2021
“My muscles feel so relaxed. Feeling really tender and nurtured and cared for. Able to fully let go and relax. I was in my body having this physical experience, but there was another sense where I was also somewhere else as well, not quite sure where that was but somewhere really lovely”.
Client, Nov 2022
“It helped me find clarity in my words, my expression, thoughts, feeling, emotions in order for them to be shared in an appropriate way ”
Client, Todmorden, 2021
“It helps me differentiate between actual problems and imagined problems. I usually take on more burdens than necessary. This helps me not do that. ”
