Have you ever visited a world-class Hawaiian spa? If you have, then you may know just how incredible a traditional Hawaiian massage, or lomilomi, can be. With a massage that is uniquely Hawaiian, supported by the beautiful Lake Champlain near Burlington, Vermont, you will truly feel supported by the fusion of the natural elements.
What is Lomilomi?
Lomilomi is Hawaiian massage. It comes in many forms, as taught by different families throughout the islands. Unifying most styles of Lomilomi are a few general characteristics: the work is deep, flowing, and follows the basic rhythms of nature in its patterns and cycles. Most people who experience Lomilomi for the first time absolutely love it. Lomilomi has potential to transform the body, creating more space, ease, and balance within, while also encouraging deep relaxation of mind, body, and heart. Injuries heal, pain is relieved, patterns of holding stress and tension release, and a feeling of well-being is restored.
Hot Stone Massage Therapy- A Treat for the Soul
In Hawaii, healing practitioners collect smooth, round stones from the streams, which are then heated and applied therapeutically to the body. Hawaiian hot stone treatment, unlike other hot stone treatments, does not normally place stones in a stationary position on the body: Lomilomi stones stay in motion. The stone becomes an extension of the practitioner's hand, to comfortably deliver specific, deep relief to the body in the areas of greatest tension.
