On Hawaii, Polynesian Floor Massage (also called Polynesian Floor Treatment or Polynesian Floorwork) is part of the Kahuna healing arts and a form of (usually clothed) Kahuna bodywork, practiced on a mat on the floor. In contrast to Hawaiian Lomi Lomi and Kahuna Massage, oils are not used.
Polynesian Floor Massage targets stiff and overworked muscles, joint pains, knots, adhesions and contractions, using a wide range of stretches, joint mobilizations and deep pressure. Additionally, benefits include improvement of posture, improved blood circulation, stress-relief, increased vitality, and more flexibility.
The massage can be applied for anyone, young or old, except for pregnant women.
