Lomi-atsu massage

Lomi-Atsu massage is a fusion of Lomi Lomi (Hawaiian massage) and Shiatsu (traditional Japanese massage). Lomi Atsu mixes the loose, fluid movements of Lomi Lomi and sliding pressure. It is a very enveloping and relaxing massage that is practised with oil on a massage table, relaxing deeply while stimulating the vital functions of the body. It also harmonizes body energy with the stimulation of the energy circuits of organs, known as meridians. It is suitable for those who wish to have an intense experience of both regeneration and relaxation.

Benefits

Lomi Atsu is a massage that helps renew the vitality of the body and loosen the muscles. With the stimulation of Shiatsu pressure points, the therapist facilitates the relaxation of profound tension. Abdominal massage, which forms a large part of Lomi Atsu, provides a better detoxifying effect and reduces emotional stress.

Lomi Atsu massage is recommended for:

  • Increasing one’s energy level;
  • Improving one’s overall health;
  • Reducing muscle tension;
  • Reducing stress.

It can also help people with digestive disorders, sleep disorders, headaches, and migraines, as well as fibromyalgia.

Proceedings

Lomi Atsu is a massage that is given on a table with oil. The therapist will use their hands, thumbs, forearms, and elbows to apply pressure to the entire body. They will use the weight and strength of their body to apply pressure on the client. The therapist will pay special attention to the abdomen.

Contraindications

The contraindications for Lomi Atsu massage are the same as for most techniques: fever, infection, wounds or skin problems, and a history of cardiac disorders. It is not recommended for pregnant women.
