Description of Services:

This Hawaiian form of bodywork is often called the ‘dance of breath and life from the heart”. It will take you on a journey by beautifully and effortlessly combining breath, touch, music and movement to facilitate real and lasting change on a physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual level. It will soothe your frayed nerves, give you deep rest and connection, and at the same time, revitalize your personal energy. Kahuna bodywork uses dynamic music, movement and breath to unblock stuck energy in the body, to create more flow in your body and your life. Traditionally in Hawaii, this work was used to support people going through life changes and rites of passage. Regular sessions will support you in times of change and crisis. In 2005, after the death of my father, my first Kahuna massage started me on a journey that has changed my life. The movement and rhythm of Kahuna Massage, it’s a connection to nature and the elements, the Huna principles of living and the safe, loving space that is created in Kahuna sessions and retreats made it possible for deep emotional pain and old beliefs to be released. I began to feel more whole. I realized that the body I had neglected for twenty years had a lot of wisdom to share with me. I felt like I had come home. My first massage training with Anthea Hardwick in South Africa in 2011 shook me to my core and lit a fire in me that has not been quenched. I have massaged many bodies since and been on many more Kahuna massage trainings as both participant and assistant. Five years ago, I entered into an initiation process to learn to teach the sacred work of Kahuna Massage. I am now blessed to be part of the group of six core members of the Aloha Life Centre, which has been created to teach Kahuna in South Africa and abroad. In March 2018, I relocated to Seattle from South Africa where I aim to continue massaging and teaching. Sharing this work with others gives me great pleasure, feeds my own soul, and continues to heal my heart and body. I hope to touch many more bodies and hearts with the loving touch of Aloha that Kahuna offers, and through this, bring more Aloha and healing to the world. I invite you to come home to your body and your soul. Kahuna sessions can vary. They can include flowing strokes, oil or fully clothed massage, deep tissue release work, stomach massages, bone washing and floor work. Each session is different, working with your needs, where you are at. A series of weekly massages is highly effective to begin your Kahuna journey and support you through any life-changing experiences. Thereafter, a monthly massage will keep you on track, or you might choose to continue with weekly sessions. As one weekly client says “My regular visits are therapy, physical relief, comfort, hope all wrapped into one.” Types of Bodywork Available:
  • Traditional Kahuna Oil massage Kahuna
  • 2 hour deep tissue spiritual release work (oil massage)
  • Polynesian Floor Treatment (joint rotation and deep pressure work) (fully clothed)
