Kahuna Wisdom of Hawaii

The Massage of the Future with deep roots from the past.

Hawaiian Massage compasses the teachings of two healing traditions from ancient, mystical Hawaii - Kahuna bodywork and LomiLomi massage. 

Kahuna bodywork was a shamanic rite of passage performed in the healing temples of ancient Hawaii. These were sacred and formal rituals primarily given to key members of the community such as tribal leaders, master craftsmen and the young elite to help develop community responsibility as well as spiritual empowerment.

The Kahunas were highly respected as keepers of the esoteric knowledge of life. In the ancient Hawaiian world view, everything in existence was considered to be alive, thinking, feeling and self determining, as well as highly responsive to human prayer.  The Kahunas used their prayer skills to communicate directly with nature, the ancestors and the Gods for the good of all. This made the Kahunas immensely important and powerful. It was also their sacred duty to pass on this knowledge to the tribal chiefs, who were ultimately responsible for the well-being and prosperity of the people, resources and the islands.

The modern day practice of Hawaiian Massage is deeply influenced by Kahuna wisdom and skills, yet softened by the informality and softness of Hawaiian Lomi Lomi.

Lomilomi was a more accessible massage given by family members for relaxation and recuperation within the extended family.  Lomi Lomi, a respected tradition in itself, was passed down from generation to generation; with each group having it’s own style and merit.  Hawaiian Massage is the practical hands-on expression of this enriching, rejuvenating and compassionate massage system.

Devotedly passed down from the ancients to the present day, Hawaiian Massage is overflowing with the spirit and grace of Aloha, the Hawaiian word for love. Hawaiian Massage was developed in an era when life was abundant with generosity, goodwill and loving kindness. These attitudes, universal to all humanity, continue to be expressed in the practice of Hawaiian Massage.

Hawaiian Massage is a synergy of Hawaiian Lomilomi massage with Kahuna bodywork. By intensifying the glorious energy of Aloha the healing possibilities of Hawaiian Massage are immense.

The practitioner engages their whole being when performing Hawaiian Massage; this includes heart, mind, soul as well as body.  Working with oils the practitioner uses hands, forearms and body weight. As this is an all body massage the participant wears a movable loincloth.  This allows the practitioner to make long sweeping strokes up and down the full length of the body. These continuous, rhythmic strokes of varying intensity gives the delightful impression of many hands working simultaneously.

On another level Hawaiian Massage offers much more than any other type of massage.  It offers a uniquely empowering, inspirational experience creating wonderful feelings, visions and insights beyond your expectations.  Enveloping the body in the magnanimous energy of Aloha, it effortlessly dissolves negative beliefs, patterns and memories inviting permanent change. Blessings of inner assurance, self-love and acceptance give a refreshingly new perspective to life.  Hawaiian Massage allows heart felt clarity, purpose and joy as well as improved relationships.

Having a Hawaiian Massage can be likened to a guided meditation or spiritual visualisation, as deep inner connection with liberation from confusion is truly experienced. Participants leave the table as it born again, extremely relaxed and cleansed by wave upon wave of loving touch.

When the heart, mind, soul and body are in alignment an abundance of healing on every level is possible. Because of these extraordinary benefits many experienced therapists of other massages styles believe that Hawaiian Massage is the best massage system they have ever encountered.
