Sacred Lomi Massage

Hawaiian Lomi Lomi massage is a sacred form of bodywork that includes flowing movements that are rhythmic in nature. Using broad and specific techniques, this modality is one of our favorites to offer at Blue Marigold Massage + Wellness!

Our Lomi massage therapists use palms, forearms, fingers, elbows, knees, and hot stones to generate a sense of balance and well-being within the scope of this work.  The pressure can range from light to medium, but many claim to have felt “just the right amount of pressure” due to the focused and intentional work being done around the joints, ligaments, attachments, and other crucial areas of the body that hold and store significant tension.  Hawaiian Lomi also incorporates stretching, similar to traditional Thai massage; the main difference is the continuity of the work in the rhythmic fashion that Hawaiian Lomi has become so well-known and regarded for.

The benefits of Lomi Lomi are tenfold.  Lomi Lomi helps release blockages, all the while replenishing and strengthening the life force energy. Lomi Lomi is not just a physical experience, it also has been known to support emotional and spiritual healing.

This technique was traditionally used as a healing practice for master healers of Hawaiian origin, and until recently, this modality was exclusively passed down from generation to generation.  Luckily, some of the greatest Hawaiian teachers, including our own, Jeana Iwalani Naluai of Ho’omana Spa Maui, has imparted this ancient wisdom to practitioners worldwide.

Individuals are required to use a towel or sheets for draping.

Dali was phenomenal, and the space was so lovely. I was in so much pain before my visit–shoulders, back, and hamstrings. Afterwards, I felt like I was walking around the world in a hot bath, completely relaxed and pain free. Her massage style is very thoughtful, present, and purposeful. I’m so thankful she had such amazing availability and for such a great price!

Absolutely amazing. I have chronic pain in my entire back so massage has been out of the question for me until now. This wonderful lady is a miracle worker. I mean it! She is able to massage my pain away. I have had other massages around here and there, you know those franchises… I always left in more pain than when I arrived. Not with Blue Marigold Massage. I find that I am usually pain free, for the most part, until my next appointment. Highly recommend for anyone wether you have pain or just love a nice relaxing massage. Great atmosphere too. Love this place.

I visited Blue Marigold while visiting friends in Portland from NYC. I get weekly massages as I am very sore from running, and training for the marathon. My massage from Dali was personalized to be exactly what I needed. She knew I was on vacation and was able to combine techniques to make sure my sore muscles were attended to with deep pressure, but also that I was able to relax and enjoy soothing touch. I wish I lived there so I could go back regularly — definitely worth the flight cross country so If you are in the neighborhood – take advantage of her custom treatment.

Dali at Blue Marigold is a brilliant massage therapist who also has an extensive knowledge for herbal and essential oil treatments. She provided a wonderful massage experience that melted away my daily stress and addressed specific muscles issues in my shoulder. Highly recommend to everyone. Worth more than she charges.

I’ve been lucky in my life to have some great massage therapists in Hawaii and NYC. So, when I needed a much needed massage in Portland, I found Blue Marigold Massage on yelp and tried it out due to the great reviews. I was not led astray. My Ashiatsu and lomi lomi massages were amazing. Dali is an expert body worker and instinctively knew which part of my body needed work. She tailored her massage for my specific needs. I will definitely visit again on my next Portland trip.

I have not had massage work done in years and after this massage I will switch to regularly getting them from Dali.

I have chronic neck tension and lower back pain, as well as acute stress. I’ve been seeing a chiropractor and had no idea that pairing it with massage could be so useful. The massage was very calming and deeply attentive. Dali was hands down exactly what I needed –  she has the perfect touch.
I’ve already recommended her to my friends, and I will be going back for more visits.
