My Ka Huna experience...
I have worked as a healer in Sydney
now for about 9 years, and prior to that I had travelled
extensively through both Europe and the US studying and
doing my energetic healing work where it was needed.
I friend of mine, who could see I was struggling a little
with some stuff suggested that I go and see this guy in
Glebe, my friend described him as a "healers healer".
When I hear names and stuff like that I am very relucent
to actually invest any time or effort as more often than
not it's about ego, but I agreed to book a session with
him which I did for the following week.
I arrived at the Centre in Glebe to be met by huge smile
and wide open eyes and what could only be described as a
HUGE heart space. The practitioner invited me in and we
sat and talked at length about the work I do, my life and
experiences to date. I then suddenly realised all of my
reservations had been left at the door and I felt a true
connection with the soul I was communicating with.
The practitioner took me down stairs and explained a little
more about the work that he does, he also told me about
the building and the space he was working from (what an
amazing space it is indeed). I climbed up onto the table
and then totally surrendered to what was about to happen.
I am actually not really sure what happened, one minute
I was face down on the table feeling the waves of the ocean
washing over me, and the sounds of angles singing and the
next thing I know, I am overcome with emotions that I didn't
even know I was carrying. I feel such anger, and given the
space I was in, I could do nothing more than to let it out,
while I don't remember what actually happened, I do know
I must have used my voice as at the end of it all, my throat
The practitioner then rolled me over and after ensuring
that I was feeling ok, again making sure that I was comfortable
I then started to feel the waves again of the ocean, but
this time the angles where not singing, it was the practitioner,
his voice was so mesmerising, it feel as though every note
he sang went right into my heart. I could feel every vibration
and with that came more tears, I was conscious enough to
know that the tears existed but unsure as to why - was it
sadness, or was it simply pure joy and love. I guess at
the end of it all - it really doesn't matter.
The practitioner then finished the treatment acknowledged
the "great work" I had done and left me to rest
and compose myself. I finally raised myself of the table,
after what felt like hours but in real terms was only 15
or so minutes, when I went to the shower, I found that he
had put a frangipani behind my ear in my hair.
I walked up stairs to again see this smiling face and overflowing
heart space. We sat and talked over some peppermint tea
and fruit and nuts - what an amazing experience this was
and so not what I was expecting.
I know that the practitioner does not refer to himself nor
does he like to be referred to as the "healers healer"
but he did promise to leave my first Ka Huna statement in
My first Ka Huna was a journey to unlock stuff that I didn't
know existed, an experience of filling my heart with love
and a joy to meet an amazing man. I am so grateful for what
I received and am telling everyone I know that they must
experience "the magic of the dance"
My Ka Huna experience...
When I first booked in for a Ka Huna
Massage, I really did not know what to expect. I had heard
a little from friends who had been before but really didn’t
know what it was all about.
There where a couple of big things going
on in my life, things I was not really dealing with. A relationship
that was decaying from the inside and not wanting to face
the conflict or the distrust that was festering, nor to
discuss about the issues in the relationship. Facing pressure
in my job both in corporate world as well as pressures of
working in a community based organisation. All this along
with personal attacks from people around me who I had given
my trust and respect to being either friends or colleagues.
I was trying to keep everyone around me happy at the cost
of my own happiness and health but I had to keep going…
after all that’s what my world expected of me –
or so I thought
After spending a little bit of time
talking to the practitioner I climbed up on the table, not
knowing of the ride I was about to embark upon. What I did
know was I was going to be a nice relaxing massage and in
an hour and a half I would get up and get on with my life.
How wrong I was.
As soon as the practitioner put his
hands on me.. I felt an instant connection; I felt not only
his hands on me, but the hands of many others… who
else was in the room? At this point I got a little nervous,
but was so tied, so exhausted and so over it all I had no
energy to fight any longer and so I surrendered…
The actual massage was a bit of a blur
for me… I remember seeing lots of colour, deep rich
shades of blue and green. I remember lots of tears and I
remember lots of stuff coming to the surface that I had
pushed deep down never wanting to deal with.
When I left the treatment, I felt great
I was not sure why I did. The friend who had told me about
Ka Huna offered to pick me up afterwards but I said I would
be ok… I took my time walking home thinking about
what had just happened to me… and then out of no
where came the tears… they came and came, and didn’t
stop… it took me about 30 min to get home and I cried
for most of the walk I had to call the practitioner when
I arrived home.. he was great and spent another 30 min talking
with me about what I was feeling..
From that day forward, I have been hooked
on Ka Huna … I have been to see lots of different
practitioners and every time is a great experience. Ka Huna
for me has been a way of working through some of the stuff
that is deep inside and to shine a torch on the scariest
parts of my being, only to find that they are not that scary
My Ka Huna experience...
I recently had my first Ka Huna body work
session. I had seen it advertised but didn’t
really know what it was all about. One day I felt
like a massage because I had been working hard at the gym.
I called up to see if I could get in for an appointment.
I walked in, and I have to say, I was
a little taken back by what I saw. A room filled with
candles, oils burning, an alter with flowers and beads on
it and a very strong man, who seemed so caring and compassionate.
I knew that this was not going to be a standard massage
but I thought hey I am up for it.
The body worker and I sat and talked for
about 15 minutes before he started the session, we talked
about lots of stuff, what was going on in my body, what
was going on in my life, a little about my kids and my wife
as well as work… I felt like I had met my practitioner
before, and we did talk about that but could not figure
out if or where we had met. I felt completely at ease
I got up on the table and as the body
worker started, he said to me, enjoy your journey.
I remember thinking “what an odd thing to say”
but when it was all over – I got what he meant.
I tired not to think too much about what
was going on, and what the body worker was doing.
He had strong hands that where very warm… I took his
advice and concentrated on my breath – breathing in
and our slowly and rhythmically.
As I laid face down on the table, I was
transported to a place in my mind; well I think it was a
place in my mind. I walked slowly with the body worker,
though a lush and very green forest; along the way we stopped
and meet a series of men along the way. We spoke without
words to each other, smiled acknowledged one another then
simply kept walking. I knew these people, and they
knew me... It all fell into place for me when I meet the
last man on the path it was my father. I had just
meet a series of men, who where my forefathers. This
is not what I was expecting.
I had never met any of these men before, I
had seen photographs of some of them, heard stories that
had been passed down by others in my family, but this was
a true connection for me of my past and the men that who
had a hand in my existence.
After the session was completed, I felt
so much more connected to myself and my family. The
relationship between my father and I had been strained and
often argumentative. He
lost his battle with Cancer about a year before, I felt
as though that time we spent talking, cleared the air between
us, we said what we needed to say and then moved on..
I have since that day
a stronger relationship with my family, and as I type these
words, I do give thanks and celebrate my father for all
that he has given to me… I miss him more than I realised,
but I know that he is in a beautiful space, and you never
know one day we may visit each other again…
My Ka Huna experience...
I first discovered Ka Huna around 2
years ago. I was physically, emotionally and mentally exhausted
from working too much and taking on too much from other
people in my life. A friend of mine was a practitioner and
she had been offering me her services for some time. I finally
relented and within a few minutes I was concentrating on
the breathing (both hers and mine) and began to experience
the relationship between body, mind and spirit. It left
me with a feeling of love and contentment and I continued
to see her for a few months. It certainly helped to ease
the tension of my life at the time, but without the commitment
to looking after my spiritual self, my world soon started
to fall apart.
For the next 18 months I suffered bouts
of debilitating depression. Traditional therapy and medication
was not helping. I had no motivation for work, social activities
or for my relationship. I had felt like I was living in
a fog of darkness and suffocation and the more I retreated
into the shadows in an attempt to escape, the more depressed
I had become and the more I pushed people away. I was letting
down my partner, my family and my friends and I could not
hold down a job. As much as I fought to try and do things
differently, the relationship I had with myself was not
allowing me the opportunity for change and healing.
Five months ago my partner left me,
unable to believe in the person she first met anymore. Most
of my “friends” were long gone, as my social
skills had deteriorated to a point where I was incapable
of holding a conversation and I could only bear to be around
people where there where drugs involved. Even then, I was
the weird depressed one sitting in the corner who no-one
wanted to talk to. My mind was playing tricks on me, and
I could no longer believe the reality that was being presented
to me on any given moment. I was paranoid, delusional and
I was contemplating ending the pain and darkness inside
when something told me start looking at alternate ways of
dealing with things.
I have known and trusted Craig for many
years now. He is my best friend, my soul brother, my husband
(as far as we can be) and my teacher. I gifted to him his
first Ka Huna massage and to see him transform through his
journey always inspired me. As hard as it was to summon
the courage, I placed myself in his big safe hands and asked
him to heal me.
His response was simple. He said I had
to heal myself, but he would be there to help.
What has begun is an exciting pathway
of personal growth. We have visited many dark spaces in
my mind and body together through touch, through meditation
and through the movement of energy, all on his massage table.
He has filled me with love and hope and worth. He has helped
me heal myself over the past months to the point where I
am once again comfortable with who I am and where I am going.
I am so excited about my own transformations. I cannot imagine
a time in my life where I have been more in touch with myself.
This extended Ka Huna experience will
always be difficult to put into words, but I will attempt
to describe it as this:
It is a nurturing of the mind that combines
with an almost out of body experience for the soul, while
all the time having a magnificent sensation and relaxation
of the flesh. It is cleansing me emotionally as well as
physically, we are removing built up physical tensions,
emotional scars, and mental anguish. We are pushing my mind
to a point of stillness and pure relaxation. I am being
drawn through a variety of emotions that had been lying
dormant for many years and facing them head on and processing
them once and for all.
I am becoming a better person for myself
and for the others around me through this experience and
In 2 weeks time I travel to high spirits retreat to begin
my own journey to become a Ka Huna practitioner. In 6 months
time I travel again to Africa, where I plan to join a project
team building houses for those we are not as fortunate as
ourselves. I have once again found purpose and ways in which
to contribute to the world we live in. And, my journey will
not stop there, I then plan to study holistic counselling
and emotional healing.
In a world where there is so much darkness,
bitterness and hate, where you are never sure when or how
or who to turn to for help, Ka Huna can be a magical experience
to help you re-connect with yourself. And from re-connecting
with yourself, you can take into your own world and circle
of experience your own personal love and joy. Now, imagine
a world where everyone was filled with that!
My Ka Huna experience...
Working daily with massages and energy
exchange can be both draining and exhausting for muscles
and soul. Massage therapists need to recharge and what I
normally would do is to go to the beach, soak up the sun,
listen to the sounds of the waves and re-energise and build
up new power.
Well, for those of you who have met Craig - you will probably
all understand what I am trying to express in words (something
very difficult when I rather would express it with music,
movement or colours)
My first Ka Huna massage with Craig
was a journey. A stunning and colourful journey in a different
space that I totally had forgotten about. I already knew
Craig so it was natural that we had a long chat before the
massage. He told me that this massage would be different
to the ones I do and that I should just relax and not try
to analyse too much what was going to happen. The chat made
me curious, and I knew I was in for a treat. I also knew
I would be able to trust him fully and I was willing to
surrender to his powers, hands and song.
Both Craig and I share the same philosophy
when it comes to massage. It's a 'total' experience that
must attract all senses and boy, does Craig know what he
is talking about the room so full of beauty, so generous
with soft light-music- colour and life. I can't explain
in words what happened during the next 2 hours on the table
but I was taken back to memories from my childhood that
I totally forgot about. I was at my parents' summer house.
Mother was teaching me to swim and she held me safely in
her arms to the surface of the water. She was humming a
song to calm me down: well it wasn't my mother. It was Craig
and his strong warm hands, holding me - just like my mother
used to do, just humming a different song.
You need to experience this journey.
I recommend all my clients to visit Craig too, as it's hard
to describe what a Ka Huna with Craig is all about. My best
word for it would probably be LOVE.
After we finished our first session
we had a long reflection chat about the massage. Craig gave
me compliments and told me how much he enjoyed doing this
with me and THAT'S IT! It's the exchange that is so tremendously
powerful, the flow of energy that flows between us throughout
the massage. Like waves on the ocean. The ocean of love.
Craig has become a very special
friend - much through our daily chats, but most of all through
the power of his hands and heart.
My Ka Huna experience...
I have been on my spiritual journey
for about 8 years, with everything going to plan. I became
a Reiki Master in 2003 and decided that I was content with
what I had achieved until the end of 2005 when I had an
accident at the place I work. Due to this accident, I had
developed RSD and Epycondolytis and with this had bouts
of Depression for two years. I thought I had no choice but
to let the Medical profession and work try to deal with
I was beginning to lose my way spiritually physically and
mentally. I had lost interest in my Reiki and my friends
and just did what I needed to do to get by each day. This
had a major effect on my family as I am a divorced father
of four great boys, who I had become so reliant on to get
chores done around the house while I just sat around feeling
sorry for myself, till one day while surfing the internet
I came across a site for Ka Huna Australia.
I read the web site and found an email address to make contact
with a Practitioner in Sydney. As I live about five hours
west of Sydney, I needed to make plans and set about making
appointments. The week leading up to my trip to Sydney was
quite unusual as the chain of events that took place just
blew me away with so many of my friends calling in and offering
their natural therapies and there help. I am usually the
one running around helping everyone else and being too stubborn
to accept help when I need it, so I gladly accepted.
I went to Sydney and met this great guy at his studio and
was greeted with a large smile and warm handshake, we sat
and talked for about an hour and a half about what we do
and I felt so comfortable. My intuition was telling me that
this man could help me get my life back on track and an
appointment would be arranged for the next day.
I had arrived for my appointment and was soon feeling that
I was in safe hands, I regularly meditate but had never
felt this type of relaxation, love and warmth before, I
had surrendered my mind, body and spirit to this body worker
and soon was having an out of body experience, all this
attention brought a tear to my eye as I was feeling sad
that I had allowed myself to get into the mess I was in,
It wasn't long before I was completely relaxed and began
to enjoy all that this man was doing to help.
It has been a few weeks since my visit to Sydney and I have
so much energy, I am back to doing my house renovations
and doing all the other things including my Reiki again.
This man has helped me get back what I had lost and help
put me back on the path again, sometimes it is just so easy
to fall into the trap of self pity and depression and all
it really takes is warmth love, and some ones kindness and
time to help you overcome it. For this I am so grateful.
I must also add that a few I my closest friends wanted to
experience a Ka Huna Bodywork and asked if it could be arranged
for this man to visit our country town, He accepted the
invitation and in two days of bodywork has made positive
changes to everyone involved, it was a very special two
days of spiritual growth and learning as a couple of amazing
things that just cannot be put into words happened, I feel
that this was all part of the journey and very happy to
have been a part of it.
I have decided that I would like to take the next step of
this journey with a dear friend of mine and become a member
of the great Ka Huna family. I would like to thank you Craig
with all my heart, you have helped me in so many ways and
one day would like to share more of this love and kindness
