Signature spa services at LATHER Spa at THE MODERN HONOLULU reflect the authentic, exclusive experience our guests seek.
Our Lomi Lomi Massage is a must as it references ancient holistic healing traditions brought to the islands by Polynesian settlers. Hawaiian healers honed the technique, which our Waikiki spa massage therapists study today. As if echoing the ocean tides, our Lomi Lomi Massage flows as your therapist rolls areas of your body using his or her arm from the wrist to the elbow. The continuous contact and gentle rhythm, in turn, influence a healthy flow and balance within your mind and body. Indulge in THE MODERN HONOLULU’s Lomi Lomi Massage alone, with a partner or as part of our Luxury Spa Package. This is the Honolulu massage you must experience.
Our Lomi Lomi Retreat and traditional Lomi Lomi Massage are similar in that both incorporate long, flowing, rhythmic strokes using the forearm. The difference lies in the use of intention, connecting deeply to breath and practicing the subtle art of ho’oponopono which can be powerful and transformative, alleviating pain, freeing energy flow and promoting self-healing. Once you set your intention, you’ll melt into a rhythmic ebb and flow of long continuous strokes connecting mind & body from head to toe. You will conclude your session with reflection while enjoying an organic, locally sourced refreshment to renew your spirit, ease your mind and replenish your body.
Dry Cupping is one of the oldest methods of traditional Chinese medicine. Cupping involves the use of cups applied to one’s back in a series of positions in order to produce suction. The vacuum works by opening up skin pores, which helps stimulate the flow of blood, balances and realigns the flow of qi, breaks up obstructions and creates an avenue for toxins to be drawn out of the body. Dry cupping has an effect of redness of the skin and some amount of swelling and or slight bruising when fluids accumulate under the skin. This therapy does not cause any pain and at the most, guest might experience a pinching sensation followed by a relaxed feeling.
