Hawaiian Massage is relatively new to the Australia and particularly to a small town like Kununurra.

What is lomlomi?
Lomilomi is a sacred form of massage used to bring wellness to your being.
It works on all levels: emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual, encouraging you to become more empowered in your being and to walk the path of Pono (righteous and goodness) in life.
What do clients traditionally wear during a session?
Traditionally the client is nude and draped with a sarong for privacy.
Why nude? This allows for the best flow of the massage.

This cupping is particularly effective for loosing the back and opening the heart area, so it is a shame to miss this theraputic opportunity.

If a client wants their chest covered I can place a towel over it, but it will impede the flow and perhaps the
therapeutic power of the session.
Lomilomi massage is a fantastic way to let go and release that which is blocking your energy flow in your life and body,
allowing yourself to be draped for privacy, but otherwise nude is a great place to start for releasing limited beliefs (which can impact the bodies health).
