During Swedish massages, massage therapist Karen Reifinger performs a continual sequence of gliding, tapping, and kneading motions to gently relax the body and increase circulation. During Hawaiian lomilomi massages, Karen circles the massage table and uses her elbows, forearms, and hands in long, wave-like movements that cover the full length of the body. Lomilomi dissipates neuromuscular tension and instills a sense of mental tranquility.
