Ingrid Levy gave me one of the best massages I have ever experienced in my 22 years of living on Kauai.
This gentle Colombian native, a former flight attendant for Avianca airlines (the official airline of Colombia) has honed her skills by specializing in lomi-lomi. But, that's not all. Ingrid's peaceful and picturesque studio in a shady neighborhood in Poipu, allows total relaxation, while birds chirp and palm trees sway outside the screen doors.
After being well oiled and manipulated by skillful hands, Ingrid applied aroma therapy to my nose and upper lip, delighting the olfactory senses, and she clears the air with the heavenly sounds of tinkling chimes.
This is a full body massage, no doubt about it. Not to mention, this massage also benefits the mind and the 5 senses! Combining the essence of sound, smell and physical sensations, the client emerges refreshed, peaceful and totally relaxed.
"Lomi-lomi massage is a traditional Polynesian technique that works gently, yet deeply into the muscles, using loving hands and a loving heart," Ingrid explains.
"The Hawaiians view all aspects of the body as one, and believe that the physical-mental-emotional and spiritual are all part of the "whole" self. When healing is affected on one level, all levels are affected. The ALOHA spirit refers to the attitude of friendliness and acceptance throughout the massage with the joyful sharing of life energy, or "mana" in the present moment".
