Lomi Lomi is best known for long, flowing, dance-like strokes, often using the forearms and generous amounts of oil. Because there are so many styles, the specifics of the massage can vary. Gentle stretches and joint rotations are common in this massage. The massage therapist massages two parts of your body at the same time, for example, using one hand or forearm on your shoulder while simultaneously massaging a hip with the other hand or forearm. The combination of being massaged in two areas at the same time and the long flowing strokes are believed to promote harmony and balance in your body.
