Ka Huna or Lomi Lomi is one of the most profound forms of massage.

It is a unique healing massage derived from the ancient Polynesians and more specifically the master healers, (the Ka Huna) of Hawaii.

The seven principles for the Ka Huna:

Ike – Be Aware!  The world is what you think it is

Kala – Be Free!  There are no limits

Makia – Be Focused!  Energy flows where attention goes

Manawa – Be Here!  Now is the moment of power

Aloha – Be Happy!  To love is to be happy with

Mana – Be Confident!  All power comes from within

Pono – Be Positive!  Effectiveness is the measure of truth

One of the alternate names for Ka Huna, is “Loving Hands” massage. The reason for this is that it works gently yet deeply into the muscles with continuous, flowing strokes, totally nurturing the body and enabling the recipient to relax, let go and simply be.

The massage is given in flowing, rhythmic motion using the forearms and hands. Some people have described this as feeling like gentle waves moving over the body and others, floating on air.

Another feature is that different parts of the body may be massaged at the same time, for example one arm or hand may be working on a shoulder and the other hand may be working on the opposite hip. By not working on areas in isolation a deep sense of balance and harmony is achieved.

Whilst technique is important, the priority is Aloha (loving) the body, using intuition so the massage is “right” for the client.

When harmony is lacking in the person, the effect is pain; physically, mentally, emotionally or spiritually resulting in illness. Illness is a state of tension, which can lead to restriction in the energy flow.  Ka Huna massage helps release this and therefore facilitates the person’s ability to heal.

On the physical level, through Ka Huna massage stress and tensions are relieved, blood and lymphatic flow is assisted and the elimination of wastes and toxins stimulated.
