Hawaiian Lomilomi or Big Island Massage
By Nancy S. Kahalewai
Paperback, 192 pages, 2nd Revised edition Edition with 48 illustrations.

"Are you ready to surrender, to completely let go of your body and have it thoroughly massaged from tip to toe with beautiful fragrant warm oils and to allow your mind to sink into a blissful meditation or even a religious or transcendental experience.

Lomi Lomi is a complex massage that is relaxing and therapeutic while fully engaging all bodily senses and all the mind can do is to let go of everything it is holding on to and all stress evaporates.

Lomi Lomi or Kahuna massage has its roots in Hawaii and the Hawaiian word lomi lomi can mean going to and from or 'to knead', 'to squeeze' or 'to make soft' among other similar definitions. In Pukui and Elbert's Hawaiian dictionary lomi lomi is described as "to work in and out, as the claws of a contented cat." But for a person raised in the islands, lomi lomi simply means massage."

This extraordinary overview of traditional and contemporary lomi-lomi massage offers a unique opportunity for readers to discover the value and wisdom of Hawaiian cultural healing practices. Richly illustrated, this book provides an intimate and easy to digest portrait of lomi-lomi from the perspective of the Hawaiian people.

It contains new photos and a thorough presentation of many popular techniques, including the use of hot stones, plant medicines, and salt water. This new second edition is the only comprehensive source in print today on this unique Hawaiian art, and Author Nancy Kahalewai's entire approach is one of reverence and respect.
