What is a Lomi-Lomi Nui massage?

Lomi-Lomi Nui is a form of massage which was created in Hawaii and was originally practiced by kahunas in temples.


Long time ago a so called "work with body" played extremely important role in Hawaii. It included not only various types of massage, known until today, but also many spiritual aspects. Fortunately, many elements of this ancient knowledge have survived to this day.

Lomi-Lomi Nui massage was originally practiced in temples by kahunas, meaning masters in a specified area of expertise. It was called a ritual of passage because it meant to cleanse and prepare a person for a new, important step in life. Also, people who were to perform a special task in their community undertake Lomi-Lomi Nui massage sessions so that their body and spirit were charged with energy.

Lomi-Lomi Nui means a massage that gives a unique feeling of bliss, both inside and outside.


Lomi is the Hawaiian word used for massage. It means pressing, kneading, rubbing, as well as working on the inside and outside. At the same time it means touching by the soft cat's paw. This describes best the effect of the massage: can you recall the gentle walk of a cat, which rubs your leg with sensually closed eyes and calming purr? If so, you can certainly imagine the essence of Lomi-Lomi Nui massage!

In Hawaiian language, when we double the word, e.g. Lomi-Lomi, then its meaning is multiplied. Doubling the word Lomi emphasizes the intensity and quality of the massage. Nui means important, one of a kind, also: big.

Nowadays, it is recommended that one Lomi-Lomi Nui massage should last around two hours - during this time, the body's layers of stress are released from stress, fear and cramps. However, even a shorter massage session will bring positive results!

It is worth mentioning that the purpose of the Lomi-Lomi Nui massage is not only to relax tense muscles, but to work on the whole person by removing tension or blockages in its interior. This massage naturally heals the patient's psyche, one can say that it is a feast for the senses.

Lomi-Lomi Nui massage awakens self-healing forces in the body, because they cause the correct healing process.
