What does Time Out mean to me? That’s a question I keep asking myself when I entered this nice Massage place in Buendia Makati. I couldn’t really call it a SPA but this place lives up to its name. It will give you the Time Out that you need to recharge and relax even for just a little while.
It doesn’t provide a lot of services yet but it massages you (Pun intended) where it matters the most. They decided to focus on the limited number of treatments so It can give you the quality that you needed. I was also glad to find out that all the attendants have been certified by TESDA.
What does Lomi lomi mean anyway? By the way please don’t confuse this from the popular noodle soup from Batangas. 'Lomi lomi' translates to 'rub rub' in Hawaiian, and reflects the broad, flowing strokes made with the therapist's fingers, thumbs, palms, arms and elbows. Macadamia, palm and coconut oils are usually used as moisturizers in lomi lomi massage, to keep the strokes smooth and to nourish the skin.
Lomi lomi is a traditional Hawaiian massage that uses a combination of massage techniques, nut oils, and sometimes elements of prayer, breathing and dance to restore energy and soothe the body. It is also known as the 'loving hands' massage. This name helps to explain its principles - the massage works gently yet deeply into the muscles with continuous, flowing strokes, allowing the recipient to relax and give in to the nurturing touch.
Lomi lomi works from the belief that memories are not just stored in the brain and mind, but also in every cell of the human body. The long, continuous strokes of the massage are designed to help the body let go of its old patterns and behaviors, which can cause as many stresses and strains as muscle tension.
