Kahuna Bodywork (Lomi Ka’aleleau) is a flowing and dynamic form of massage-like therapy. Performed to music, Kahuna Massage uses sensitivity and long flowing strokes to provide a space for clients to experience healing and wellbeing for themselves. With the aid of posture, leverage and motion, the practitioner is able to perform the bodywork according to the script of the client’s body and facilitate healing. This allows clients to regain balance and awareness. Kahuna Bodywork also enables both practitioner and client how to access pathways to physically, emotionally or spiritually unexplored areas within themselves.
