There is a part of healing and rejuvenation that takes place at Movara that I have been really anxious to share with you! Let me take you with me to our spa.
At the end of each long and exhausting day we open up our spa as a place for guests to relax, heal, and unwind. Yesterday was one of those long and exhausting days for me and I knew exactly what I needed! I usually opt for a traditional Swedish massage because they feel so good and are so relaxing, but as of last night my opinion has officially changed. I still love a good Swedish massage, but I was introduced to something I have never experienced before, and it was amazing! It’s called the lomi lomi massage and only one of our gifted therapists performs this incredible massage.
Marie is fantastic in all modalities that she performs, but this particular massage requires a gift and she has it!
Lomi lomi is a massage originating in Hawaii and traditionally used as a healing practice of native healers, a luxury and an aid to digestion, and restorative massage within the family. Like all endeavors in old Hawaii, lomi lomi is conducted with prayer and intention. I had never met Marie prior to our massage but by the end I felt like I could wrapped my arms around her like we’d been friends our whole lives. Her ability to connect with people using this modality is amazing.
Several different oils are used throughout this massage, which did more than I expected!
My least favorite thing about a massage is how fast the time goes. Sometimes I feel like the therapist is rushing to get through everything before the 50 minutes are up. But with Marie I kept wondering if I had accidentally booked an 80 minute massage because it felt like it just kept going and going. Turns out it was only 50 minutes, but she just flows so well that it felt like a lot longer, which I LOVED! I don’t want to give away all the secrets of the lomi lomi because I want you to experience it for yourself when you come, but I definitely suggest booking at least one lomi lomi during your stay. Since Marie is our only therapist that performs the lomi lomi, you are welcome to call and book way before you even arrive! And make sure you let me know what you think! I’m already ready for another one!
