Introduction to Hawaiian healing

Ka Huna massage originates from the Hawaiian Islands, where it was practised by the local healers or 'ka hunas'.

 

Using breathing techniques, intention, focus and compassion, they were able to channel and direct healing energy as they worked. 

 

The massage style is made up of long, rhythmic flowing strokes and a blend of gentle, but firm, and sometimes deep work using fingers, hands, forearms and elbows.

 

The goal is to relieve tension, calm the mind, bring fresh oxygen to the body, heal physical and emotional aches and pains and strengthen the lymphatic, immune, circulatory, digestive and respiratory systems.

 

Described as the Rolls Royce of massage, Ka Huna feels like no other, and can have deep effects on many levels.
