Homme, Sweet Homme – Our reporter goes where the boys (and only the boys) are – NYC’s sleek new Nickel: John, a buff, ponytail masseur who specializes in a traditional type of Hawaiian massage called Lomi Lomi.  Compared to other methods, in which the masseur slowly and deliberately works on particular parts of your body, Lomi Lomi is much more fluid.  John’s hands rapidly and forcefully glide across my body, and with vision of surfers skimming the ocean, I let myself go limp as I’m pummeled of all my stresses and strains.
