Kahuna Massage is a healing technique inspired by the Hawaiian Lomi-lomi Technique

I’ve spent a large part of my life learning about it and also practicing professionally at one stage in my life (although I don’t actively work as a therapist anymore.)

On this page I’ll share the story of my own personal journey in the learning of this ancient healing art form.

What is Kahuna Massage?

KaHuna combines prayer (pule), breath (ha), energy (mana) and uses the power of flowing massage strokes for deep relaxation, to release blockages in your body and to allowing your spirit to awaken.

Steeped in the ancient traditions of Hawaiian spirituality and healing and made popular to the west by Serge Kahili King and Max Freedom Long, Lomilomi (the original Hawaiian word for what’s know known as Kahuna Massage) is returning to a world which is yearning for a return of gentleness and affectionate touch.

KaHuna massage helps you to accept and love yourself

Using the principles of ho-onoponopo (to make right)words are not powerful enough to express the magic and power of this healing system. You can only appreciate this once you have tried it out for yourself.

Read what some people have said about their Kahuna experience:

During a KaHuna session you will feel deeply nurtured and healed. You may fall into a light trance as the rhythmical massage movements flow over you like warm ocean currents.

This amazing bodywork sets your being into a fluid motion and creates a space within you to bring about a beautiful change in your physical body, flowing into your emotional & psychological levels, changing your mental patterns and integrating it all by bringing about profound changes in your spiritual being.

Kahuna bodywork takes you deep within your self where you can listen to your own body and understand the effects of your past experiences and where necessary, to heal those experiences. Its like a combination of a light aromatherapy massage with the penetration of a deep tissue leaving you relaxed, and invigorated.
