Inner Nature offers Kahuna massage – the ultimate balancing treatment. An ancient form of Hawaiian bodywork, this unique deep tissue massage is designed to relax and invigorate the mind and body.
Kahuna bodywork is a wonderful way to pamper a friend or yourself. The treatment will assist you to connect to healing on the deepest level bringing vitality to your body and a feeling of peace to your mind.
What is Kahuna bodywork?
Kahuna bodywork originated in the South Pacific and was used during Rites of Passage as a tranformational massage and healing system. It is also known as Hawaiian Temple Style Massage and Lom Lomi. This beautiful and unique form of bodywork provides a holistic approach to healing.
During a treatment, the practitioner moves around the massage table with flowing hula and tai chi style movements and uses their hands, forearms and elbows to massage the client. Music is played and the practitioner tunes the flow of the massage to harmonise the client’s physical and emotional needs.
This focused attention and open-hearted attitude of love and compassion by your therapist is a key difference of the Kahuna style, the essence of the ‘aloha’ spirit sacred to the people of Hawaii.
