At Melody’s Massage studio, licensed massage therapists harness the therapeutic techniques of ancient Hawaiian healers during traditional lomi lomi massage sessions. Pain and stress head for the getaway car as long, gliding strokes ripple down backs, with practitioners delivering nurturing kneads with the aid of deft hands, elbows, and forearms. Two therapists team up for the tandem massage to jointly manipulate in balance the body’s left and right sides for clients with extra muscle tension and problematic lumps of coal. Faux island getaways unfold in one of the studio’s private massage rooms, where warm incandescent lights ease tired eyes, cool sheets enfold bodies, and an active volcano quietly warms the therapist’s dinner.
