The Kahuna/Lomi Lomi massage technique originated in the South Pacific and provides a wholistic approach to healing by balancing the body-mind in its physical, emotional, mental and spiritual dimensions. It is based around dance and rhythm movements performed by the practitioner to redistribute energy flow within the recepients body, auric field and chakra system.

Each massage is performed to suit the individual's requirements at that time. I use my hands, elbows and forearms in long flowing strokes of varying intensity and rhythm up and down the whole body, starting at the feet and working up through the body and out through the hands. Whilst moving around the table, energy is channeled through me into the client. Whilst music is played, I attune the flow of the massage to harmonise the various rhythms with the client's body-mind-soul. Intuitive Bodywork leaves you feeling lighter, clearer and more energised.

What to expect during and after a massage

Before a massage session I speak with the client to establish their current state of physical health. This assists me to determine what the main focus of the session will be to obtain maximum benefits.

During the massage, you will benefit most from trying to “switch off” and focus your attention on your breathing. It is best not to talk throughout the treatment as this allows you to deepen your experience of relaxation, but it is up to you as to how you are feeling at the time. If you experience discomfort or need to express a particular need, feel free to communicate this at any stage during the treatment.

Kahuna/Lomi Lomi massage is a powerful form of healing which affects people differently and goes beyond what words are able to express. It induces changes in energy levels, emotions and physical feelings. You will be amazed by the energy you receive, physical healing and relaxation. It is important to feel all of your feelings which can include unlocking stuck emotions, crying, laughing, smiling. Other times you may see colours, have ideas come to mind, feel at peace, release past memories or connect more deeply to your soul. It will be different at each session and will depend on what you require.Candles

Client feedback received;

“That was awesome”
“It's the best massage I've ever had”
“I feel so much lighter”
“I have so much more movement in my body now”
“I have never switched off that quickly before”.

It is important to drink plenty of water after a massage as this assists in the detoxifying process. This form of healing can take effect for up to 3 days after a treatment. Simply observe what happens in the following days without getting stuck in it in any way. Enjoy the experience and go with the flow!
