About this Lomi Lomi Massage Course ...
Lomi Lomi is a unique massage that appears like a beautiful dance of the therapist whilst using special movements of palm, elbow and forearm. These delicate movements help to relieve the whole body of pain whilst balancing and resolving potential energy blocks - creating the perfect harmony for body and mind.
The therapist will learn how to complete this massage style as a full routine, or how to incorporate it into their everyday routines.
Please note that this massage technique uses extremely minimal draping techniques, wearing a bikini or swim briefs is highly recommended.
