Aloha is at the center of Lomi Lomi Massage, that is the spirit of love and deep care. Lomi Massage has both a strong connection to your body but equally your mind. For those seeking massage for relaxation, joy and peace - this goes beyond just your physical body - it is a space for you to be cared for in a most amazing way. Through the expression of true aloha, and the power of touch, embrace and freeing of your spirit.
Lomi Lomi (Rub, Rub) takes its style from the rhythmic and flowing nature of the ocean. The massage is to your whole body, so it is best done naked, but if you are shy - we use a lava lava to cover you. A combination of hot oil and hot Lava Stones are used across your body - this creates a unique healing for specific areas you want to work on. Lomi Lomi is in general Not a Sensual Massage, but I am happy to work with you so you are empowered and relaxed.
Traditionally Lomi Massage is done on a Pacific Futon on ground level - this allows me to move freely across and around your whole body - it creates a unique closeness to each other that a massage table sometimes prevents, and perfect for big guys or those wanting more space to spread out!
Back in Hawaiia the work I did there was with all sorts of guys, Married, Single, Professional, Big Body (We are proud to be large!), young, old and disabled men, it doesn't really matter as Aloha does not judge. Lomi is perfect for those wanting to try Male to Male Massage for the first time "Kahuna Nui Hale Kealohalani Makua!"

Marma is an ancient form of Massage originating from South India as part of the traditional Martial Arts. Marma is a deeply sensual massage aimed at empowering your mind, soul and body. Marma goal is to use elements of gentle touch across your whole body, deep breathing, bathing and hot oil to connect core Marma points over your body. You know your body and what empowers you, so click on the Marma Massage Points Picture and work through which Marma Points you want to include in your session.
Marma has 107 key points mapped across your body aimed at targeting key areas associated with your goals of your session. The 108 Marma point is your mind, a key element of your session. Click on the Marama Map above and work out which Marma point or points you want focused on during your session. See below to help you work out which Marma are best for the goals you have for your session
Marma massage has four key elements conducted during your massage
(1) Touch - Marma originated as a male to male massage for men involved in traditional Indian marshal arts. For many being massaged by a male across your entire body maybe new. However we approach this as a very natural and freeing experience. Men know each others body better, and this is done without judgment about your body size, age, values - our focus is deep peace, empowerment and a strong sense of fulfillment in being all that you can be.
(2) Breath - this is a key element of Marma, breath connects your mind to the touch and each marma point across you body. We also reckon it helps guys relax, as often we spend our massage sessions over-thinking! We will start each session with breathing lessons - not only for the session, but also for you to take back to your work and home life as well
(3) Water Water in marma is a symbol of cleansing and also represents the idea that water finds its way to every part of your body - Marma massage is the same, to all parts of your body. Before each session we start by washing you - again for some this is a new experience and an amazing start to your session.
(4) Oil in a traditional marma session large amounts of oil is used, often with herbs designed to assist in healing. In our NZ Studio we use sweet almond oil, and we will add herbal elements only when they are needed and with your guidance
The Focus here is on three Marma areas (1) Simantaka, (2) Ansa (3) Lohitaksha - this is a triangle massage technique is from side of the head, upper shoulder and down to a couple of powerful marma points just each side of the penis and inner groin area. In all three key marma points the thumb/palm of the masseur is used to gently massage, often two areas at once.
This massage is focused on alleviating severe pain. Key Marma Points area (1) Ansa phalak (2) Katika (both hip and buttock area) (3) Kukundaraya (4) Ani & Gulpha - The masseur will use fore-arms, his feet, knee and torso to lie across dorsi muscle area (A group of muscles in the low back, hip area), and use gentle body weight and his body heat to move closed joints and damaged tissue. Some herbal oil can also be used to create a deep healing within
A key element in dealing with stress is breathing. Consider booking a specialised breathing focus into your session. Here both the giver and receiver lie close together and a mindful focus of connected breathing is created as both bodies and mind unit. See booking page to add
Sexual well-being covers three key goals (1) Connecting deeply with your sexual energy through a slow, sensual massage. This is seen as a key part of your day to day well being (2) Supporting those with ED (3) Helping you to increase stronger and or multiple orgasm .
Key Marma points are (1) a grouping of Marma - Vastih, Vitapam, Lohitaksha (see Marma Map)
(2) Traditional Lingam (ling or Penis) massage is strongly focused on massage directly on the Penis. There is a number of techniques which can include using micro--massage of the glands - this is focused and extended over a period of time to create immense energy and powerful release. (3) Guda - is the area just under the testicles, the anal area and inside the sacred spot or prostate - this is a very powerful part of male sexual well being - the masseur uses hand/palm broadly across the buttock area, and if you want your prostate massaged (just ask) the masseur uses fingers to both gently massage the sacred spot within and just under the testicles, often both at the same time
In Marma Massage generally both the giver and receiver are naked - the focus is the connection and energy of each others body to empower that sense of deep peace and connection to your sensual emotions. To hold, to touch, to caress each others bodies - creates a stronger connection of your mind, and to the massage.
The goal is to "disappear" into that space and freeing your physical body - so that is why Marma is a wonderful thing, as no judgement of age, body shape, or who you are matters. Close your eyes, breath and sense the movement and connection across your body and mind!
I use both Lomi and Marma style in Sports Massage depending on what your goals are. Both styles assist in both quick and long term injury rehabilitation. I also use herbal oils and plant based massage wax for specific treatment of injuries. We will discuss your plan and what is best for your sessions.
I have three modalities used in sports massage (1) Using targeted pressure on core Marma Points to create energy to build a release and enable better mobility of muscles and tissues - particularly if they are damaged (2) Effleurage which is broad sweeping lomi lomi strokes across your whole body, limbs - and from head to toe (3) Localised heat using hot lava stones or blended oil to generate heat
