We’d love you to meet our incredible team of practitioners here at Sydney Ka Huna!
Keep reading to find out more about each individual practitioner – and just so you know, our days are divided into the AM shift (8:30am – 3pm) and the PM shift (4pm – 9:30pm).

The “Ka Huna” is certainly our signature style, but we do offer a few variations! Heartworks Lomi Lomi is more of a slower, deeply relaxing massage, our Bodyscrub treatment incorporates both a full-body scrub at the beginning of the treatment, followed by a Ka Huna massage, and our Pregnancy Ka Huna massage is designed specifically for pregnant women at any stage of their pregnancy (after 12 weeks).

Sydney Ka Huna Practitioners

Siggy is in the Centre: Friday PM & Sunday PM

Siggy detoured from university to follow her passion for holistic healing beginning with Reiki and massage study. When she discovered Ka Huna bodywork she felt deeply connected to the spirit of Aloha. After studying at High Spirits Retreat she travelled to study Lomi Lomi massage in Maui, Hawaii. This journey sparked a deep love for Hawaiian culture as she saw how traditional Hawaiian healing including Ka Huna (Lomi Lomi) is used everyday. Now back home from travelling Siggy is excited to share what she has learnt.
Through weaving her magic of Reiki, the ocean flow of Ka Huna and Lomi Lomi Siggy intuitively dances with each client tuning into what they uniquely need.
“I love that Ka Huna combines different elements like song, dance, energy and bodywork together. Each element brings a greater state of healing and balance to the body, mind and soul of each person. It sparks bliss in me when I see a client surrender and feel joy, deep relaxation and healing through receiving Ka Huna. The opening of the heart through giving this massage leaves me feeling elated and so blessed to offer this”.
Siggy is a Remedial Massage Therapist, Meditation Teacher and Reiki Master.

Ka Huna Lomi Lomi Jay

Jay is in the Centre: Tuesday PM

Jay’s journey with Kahuna massage started in a workshop where he found himself partnered up with a man whose arm had the continual shakes. Jay intuitively reached out to the man’s arm and pushed on a pressure point. The older man’s arm instantly stopped shaking for the first time in 5 years and he looked at Jay and expressed that he had just miraculous healed him. “No, you healed yourself, I just brought the loving attention to it,” Jay replied.

“For me Hawaiian massage embodies the 4 pillars that I feel are the corner stones to living a beautiful life and combating dis-ease in the human body. These 4 pillars are: Breathe, Movement, Touch and Community… all wrapped in love.”

Jay has had the great feedback from clients and also from our Ka Huna teacher, Mette Sorensen: “You are born to do this work. An old soul with wisdom you share with many, thank you. You are caring, intuitive and have great focus and flow in the Ka Huna massage.”

“The greatest beauty in the human experience is to love and connect. To touch another with love, to calm their weary mind, to nurture, to put them into a state where they can feel and radiate their own inner love… that is magic and where the magic occurs.”

Massage Therapist Katerina

Katerina is in the Centre: Monday PM, Thursday AM, Friday AM & Saturday AM

Katerina also has her Reiki 1 & 2 certificates. “The real power is being truly in our heart and allowing ourselves to go deeper than just physical level. That‘s where the magic begins… I love to connect and open my heart to my clients and create a space for them and to be able to nourish and relax their body.

Ka Huna Therapist

Siobhan is in the Centre: Tuesday PM

Rebates available with all health funds

Siobhan’s back! She’s been busy with her two little bebe’s for a while… and now she’s ready to spread her Ka Huna wings again. xx

From that moment I heard about Ka Huna massage I knew I had to do it!

I began my life path into bodywork whilst on a personal journey to heal myself, during which I gained a huge awareness of the connection of the mind and the body, and the ability we have to heal ourselves.

I’ve always been passionate about music, dance, healing and fitness and amazed at the capabilities of the mind and the body and ka huna is combination of all those things!

I’ve studied and practiced a few areas of bodywork and my passion continuous to grow, inspiring me to learn and share more of my knowledge and passion.

I love doing bodywork, I love the magic of it and seeing people transform coming off the table like they’re floating, or suddenly they have a whole new awareness, a sense of peace, the inner child glowing from within again!

I try to create a magical space in which the client can allow themselves into a deep place for their own healing.

Lomi Lomi Therapist

Steve is in the Centre: Saturday AM

After several years massaging, Steven began his Ka Huna / Lomi Lomi training journey in 2012, following “retirement” from careers in the the corporate world.
“To me, this beautiful form of bodywork is a unique, flowing, energetically vibrant, yet deeply relaxing, whole-body massage. It provides a holistic approach to healing in its physical, emotional and spiritual dimensions”
“I love how clients usually come out of a Ka Huna massage with a radiant glow – perhaps feeling revived, replenished, renewed, uplifted, or enhanced and always… nurtured.”
(Note: If you’ve never experienced Ka Huna massage from a male therapist – you may like to know it can be an amazingly beautiful healing experience to be nurtured and stretched and held so lovingly by a respectful, professional therapist with very strong arms!)

Ka Huna Therapist

Tamara is in the Centre: Wednesday and Sunday PM

Once upon a time Tamara left corporate land and went for a break at a health retreat…and because she’s a curious kind of person she booked in for a 2 hour Ka Huna massage. After the most amazing, mind-blowing massage she’d ever had, the first thing she said to the therapist “How do I learn how to do that?”.

That was 13 years ago… since then she has completed 7 levels of Ka Huna training, Certificate 4 in what she calls ‘normal’ massage (Swedish/deep tissue) and also hot rocks. Tamara believes that healing comes from within each person. She loves to create the space for magic to occur… and then guide you to drop in to yourself where you can allow relaxation / healing / release to happen.
