Guests are also welcome to enjoy a walk along our quiet countryside road, enjoying the surrounding nature.

What is a KaHuna massage?

KaHuna massage originated in the South Pacific and was used during Rites of Passage as a transformational massage and healing system. It is also know as Hawaiian Temple Style massage and Lomi Lomi.

This beautiful form of massage provides a holistic approach to healing by balancing the body-mind in its physical, emotional and spiritual dimensions.

KaHuna massage is unique in a number of respects. The practitioner uses their hands, forearms and elbows and moves around the table (using flowing Hula an Tai Chi style movements). They work with energy to apply soft and deep tissue massage. Music is played and the practitioner attunes the flow of the massage to harmonise the various rhythms within the client’s body, mind & soul.

At Tivoli Retreat all practitioners have qualified, after in-depth training with Mette’s Institute at High Spirits Retreat and your practitioner will have extensive massage experience.

Do you have an age limit?

Tivoli Retreat is an adults only retreat, so guests need to be 18 or older.

Our closest airport is the Sunshine Coast Airport (also called Maroochydore), which is an hour away, otherwise guests can fly into the Brisbane Airport, which is approximately a 2 hour drive.

Activ Tours & Transfers (https://activetransfers.com.au/) charge approx $110 return for the Sunshine Coast Airport or $160 from the Brisbane Airport and drop you off at the retreat.

Otherwise you could catch a train to the Gympie North Station and we could come and collect you from there.
