Practitioners

We’d love you to meet our incredible team of practitioners! 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 a slower, deeply relaxing massage - inviting stillness and complete nervous system rest. Uur 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 - we can massage you after 12 weeks right up until delivery and beyond!

SIGGY

Available: Every 2nd Thursday PM, Friday PM, Saturday AM & Sunday PM

Siggy detoured from university to follow her passion for holistic healing. When she discovered Ka Huna bodywork she felt deeply connected to the spirit of Aloha. After starting at High Spirits she travelled to study Lomi Lomi 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. 

“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. The opening of the heart through giving this massage leaves me feeling elated and so blessed to offer this”.

Siggy is also a Remedial Massage Therapist, Meditation Teacher and Reiki Master. She offers Reiki sessions at the Centre.

DARINKA

Available: Wednesday PM, Thursday PM & Saturday PM

I started my Ka Huna journey in 2011 when my life was in a flux. The spirit of Aloha has been a grounding aspect of my life since then, gently revealing wisdom and teachings over time. 

To me, Ka Huna is the art of loving touch - both a ceremony and a dance tailored to each individual’s needs. No two sessions are alike, every treatment is a different journey designed to take you deeply into your body, heart and spirit.

Ka Huna is an invitation to let go, be held, nurtured and nourished.

You are invited to surrender whatever is going on for you, to the space, allowing the flow and rhythm of the massage to move and shift stuck or old energy. Ka Huna massage facilitates deep inner changes without having to process in a mental state.

Katerina’s journey as a Ka Huna bodyworker started about 5 years ago.

She says that Ka Huna bodywork training has transformed her, opened her heart to new possibilities and she now loves to share her passion with others.

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.

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 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.

TAMARA

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 15 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.

Ka Huna Lomi Lomi Jay

JAY

Jay has left us to go on his next adventure! In a few months, he'll be back for visits, let us know if you'd like to be on the contact list for those dates.

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.

“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.”
