“Blissfully relaxed” with “Lomi lomi” massage by Maikhao Dream Spa

The Maikhao Dream Spa is immersed in the lush tropical green gardens of the luxurious Maikhao Resort and Spa, Natai, Phang Nga. This classic Thai styled spa is housed within a separate building of the resort making you feel that you have actually stepped out of the resort and is a place where your dreams of an ultimate spa experience can come true.

Using water as its main theme Maikhao Dream Spa has water flowing and trickling through and down the spa’s décor elements, gently embracing the spa’s interior and exterior.

The three storey spa building houses some of the most luxurious facilities you will find within any spa and its facilities include:
– 3 double treatment rooms
– 2 single rooms
– 2 romantic spa suites
– Beauty salon
– Fully equipped fitness centre

For our recent visit Nan was recommended Maikhao Dream Spas Lomi Lomi Massage.
Lomi lomi is a Hawaiian massage, 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 behaviours, which can cause as many stresses and strains as muscle tension.

“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.

The lomi lomi massage is performed on a conventional massage table, and a towel is used to preserve your modesty.

Lomi lomi begins with a period of with the therapist’s hands resting lightly on the back.

There is no set format for the massage itself, so no two Hawaiian massages are the same. The treatment may be slow and relaxing, or faster and more invigorating, depending on how your body responds.

The therapist makes full-body strokes, lightly stretches your limbs and carefully rotates your joints.

The Maikhao Dream Spa’s Loli Lomi Massage left me feeling blissfully relaxed and nurtured from top to toe.
