Kahi Loa Massage
Kahi Loa is one of the traditional methods of working with the body practiced by Hawaiian healers and shamans. Just like Lomi Lomi Nui, it is not only a massage technique but practical reflection of Hawaiian Huna and Aloha Spirit. As a result, in spite of its simplicity, it allows you to effectively restore peace and harmony.
Kahi in Hawaiian means a light touch, fire and unity; Ka – means motion, hi – to swim; Loa refers to the magnification of Kahi, and so is means Great Unity. Kahi Loa is therefore a massage using gentle, smooth motion, which leads to a state of the Great Unity. This massage focuses on the skin and can be performed while being fully clothed. In our skin we accumulate a fairly large amount of power, which is hereby released by the touch and stroking the body as well as the space above it. This allows you to quickly obtain a state of deep relaxation and peace. The energy in the body begins to flow more freely, activating the healing powers contained in it.
Kahi Loa uses the power of the seven elements of nature: fire, water, wind, earth, plants, animals and humans. Therapist unites them and reflects it in his/her movements and imagination. He also engages the imagination of the massaged person in line with the principle that energy follows attention, to further increase the power of influence. Accordingly, the massage is divided into seven parts and is carried on the back and on the front of the body. Kahi Loa massage is forwarded by Serge Kahili King, who learned it in his Hawaiian Kahili family on the island of Kauai and enriched it with his own experiences.
