OUR Hawaiian Bodywork Massages use warmed coconut oil & are practiced in a warmed environment with the client unclothed & respectfully draped using a sarong & towels.
A Hawaiian style of hot stone massage, this ancient technique of bodywork uses warm basalt stones & coconut oil to massage the body with long gliding smooth strokes.
A luxurious whole body massage, combined with the ancient philosophy of Hawaiian Lomi Lomi, creates a deep experience of relaxation and integration.
It cleanses the lymphatic system, increases circulation, and allows the body to relax and heal, relieving physical & emotional distress.
This beautiful treatment addresses the many levels of healing necessary to restore balance in the body, mind and soul. It combines the long rhythmic strokes of Hawaiian style massage (Hawaiian Lomi Lomi) with the gliding of hot basalt stones along the body, to create a deep experience of relaxation. This unique style of hot stone therapy is one of the most requested massage treatments in spas and practices around the world.
Lomi Lomi in Hawaiian means “to rub, knead, press, squeeze, massage; to work in and out, as the claws of a contented cat.”, and ili ili means “flat pebble in motion”. Together, these elements creates a most luxurious and restorative massage, as the heat and the healing energy of these beautiful stones work on releasing tension, stress and tightness on deeper levels in the body while allowing the mind to go on it’s own blissful vacation and the spirit to find it’s sense of inner peace again. We use warmed Bananban Extra Virgin Coconut Oil as our massage medium, and naturally sourced basalt rocks from South America.
Rachael was first introduced to ili ili stones over 4 years ago, and embraced this unique form of soft tissue therapy, and completes a 16 hour refresher course, biannually.
Appointments are available as 60 or 90 minute treatments, and we can incorporate Sydney Essential Oil Company Blends into the massage medium for another level of luxury. Please see our Essential Oil menu here for our blends.
