Lomi Lomi Nui – A hint of Hawaii in the Schmelzhof

Aloha! Two pieces of good news: Firstly, Carola, our well-being expert, is back here with us at the Schmelzhof Spa. And secondly, after taking a spiritual break, Carola has brought with her a little piece of Hawaii – Lomi Lomi Nui, the queen of treatments.

Mindful and attentive and inspired by the sea waves, Carola goes in search of tensions, blockages and any other issues affecting your body that prevent you from feeling free and energised. The movements are fluid, sometimes slow, sometimes faster and slightly rocking. Plenty warming oil is massaged into the body (Hamo), the deepness of the motions bringing you closer to your own soul. After a Lomi Lomi Nui treatment you feel reborn, a new you, freed from stresses and burdens.

But what exactly is Lomi Lomi Nui?

Lomi Lomi Nui is a traditional Hawaiian treatment. Originally, it was one of the natural healing methods indigenous to Hawaii. In the local language, ‘Lomi’ means rubbing, kneading or pressing. However, it’s more a form of therapeutic bodywork than a massage.

A Lomi Lomi Nui offers not only relaxation, but also physical, mental and spiritual cleansing. The Huna view (a shamanic philosophy in Hawaii) of health and illness is similar to that of traditional Chinese medicine – energy (mana) flows in a healthy body. Blockages result in illnesses or can manifest as physical tension or even numbness or stiffness. The aim of Lomi Lomi Nui is to alleviate these blockages, get the body moving again and rebalance body, mind and soul.

The Lomi Lomi Nui treatment in the Schmelzhof Spa lasts 80 minutes.

We’d be delighted to book you an appointment with Carola before you arrive.
