What is a Ka Huna massage?

Ka Huna 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.

Ka Huna 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.
