Hawaiian Lomi Pohaku


Lomi Pohaku Massage

Lomi Pohaku massage is an ancient Hawaiian healing practice that incorporates the use of smooth, warmed  stones (Pohaku) to ground, center, and soothe pressure points and cool stones to treat chronic pain and tightness.

This unique massage escape blends traditional Lomi-Lomi massage with healing stones to nurture and massage you from head-to-toe.

Using the long, rhythmic and deeply penetrating strokes of the Lomi massage, and the warmth of specially designed stones, this rejuvenating experience will melt away all your tension, leaving you balanced and relaxed.

For chronic tight muscles, cool stones are also incorporated into the sessions.

It’s been likened to be like restarting your computer to help treat chronic tightness.

The hot and cold stones encourage blood flow through the muscle tissues which flushes toxins and triggers the body’s self healing mechanisms.

Clinically it is the application of thermotherapy, using deep penetrating heated stones and alternating with extremely cold stones. Physiological benefits of alternating hot and cold to the body have long been scientifically and medically proven, and is a very familiar concept to physiotherapists.
