What is Ka Huna?
Ka Huna is an ancient technique that has its origins in the South Pacific Islands.
In Hawaiian Kahuna means “wise man”, and in North America, it is known as “the person in charge”.
In Ancient times Kahuna Bodywork was performed in the healing temples by Kahuna priests.
These were sacred and formal rituals, offered as ‘rites of passage’ to key members of the community and young adults, in order to develop a strong sense of social and family responsibility with expanded awareness and spiritual empowerment.
Nowadays Kahuna Bodywork is used as a profound way to support the body back into balance, to completely relax the mind, and supports the client in coming back into a space of centredness, calm and clarity.
Irene combines different techniques such as Lomi Lomi and Thai massage, as well as her passion for TCM, to accommodate the client’s needs. She believes that through presence, nurturing and loving touch, the body finds its way back to balance.
Can I have a shower after the massage?
You can have a shower after the treatment, and there is one available on site for you.
I use hot towels to wipe the oil from your body, and you can have the choice to have a shower.
Do I have to be completely undressed?
Despite better effect when done directly on the skin, you can always choose how much you’d like to undress.If you decide to fully undress, your genitals and buttock will always be covered at all time (no exceptions).Irene always check in with you what feels more comfortable for you.
I don’t like my head to be touched
Before starting a session Irene asks you any areas you would not like to be touch, and adjust according to your preferences.
We are unique being and every day is different. Itene is happy to accommodate your needs.
Do you do deep tissue?
Yes. With kahuna we warm up the body so the muscles open to receive deeper work. We use not only our hands snd forearms but also elbow for deep tissue work.
The combination of deep work , relaxation, music, breathing, and moving around the table has profound effects on the system. It allows letting go of tensions in the body and in the mind.
Is it a relaxation massage?
Kahuna combined with lomi lomi has extremely relaxing effects.
The long and repetitive strokes allow the body to drop into the parasympathetic system activating the ‘rest and restore’ capacity of the body.
Although it caries, it is not unusual to fall asleep during a treatment.
