KaHuna massage is a therapeutic massage technique based on the teachings and practices of the ancient Hawaiian Kahunas. In the language of native Hawaiians, “huna” means “secret knowledge” and a master practitioner of any of the huna arts is known as a “kahuna.” Traditionally, KaHuna massage (“Lomi Lomi”) was practiced in the Hawaiian Islands both for relaxation and as one of the Kahuna healing arts.
Kahuna massage differs from other types of massage therapy in two important respects:
- Kahuna massage incorporates long, flowing strokes using the forearms, elbows, wrists and hands in a continuous, fluid, rhythmic motion that can energize and ground you at the same time. Beautiful rhythmic music and special oils are used to help you relax, rejuvenate and heal.
- In Kahuna massage, the intention and focus of the practitioner is of paramount importance. They are trained to be totally focused on their client with an attitude of love and compassion. This is the essence of the “aloha” spirit that is sacred to the people of Hawaii.
