Student course review

“After receiving my first Kahuna massage from Kaye, I realized that this was a whole new level of bodywork that was profound and effective in restoring physical balance and spiritual well being. I have had a lot of massage over the years but the sheer fluidity, depth and beauty of the massage allowed me to totally let go and surrender to the experience. Kaye is a master of bodywork.” Francis Guerin.

About this course

Kahuna massage is unique in a number of respects. It is a flowing energetically vibrant and completely relaxing whole body massage where the practitioner uses their forearm and hands in long flowing strokes. Stretches, under bodywork and deep tissue techniques combined with healing intent and the rhythmic dance like flow (tai chi like movements) all contribute to a unique massage that heals the body, soul and mind .

You will be shown a number of different draping techniques so trust and safety is maintained for the needs of all clients and therapists. For example, chest draping for females. Kahuna massage is a sacred experience where client and therapist adapt massage style, draping and strokes to needs of the client to be able to let go and relax in a safe and nurturing environment free of judgments.

The use of the forearm in a dance like style enables practitioner to work at all levels of intensity with grace and ease. It truly makes deep work easy.

KaHuna Bodywork helps us open up pathways to ancient genetic wisdom in our own bodies. The seven Huna principles which are an intricate part of the course provide a life affirming spiritual philosophy to live by and integrate into one’s life. The course also gives time out in nature’s womb to connect to one’s soul self , cleanse, dream, reflect, and set goals. It’s a chance to receive and give lots of healing massages and connect to all that is in a beautiful, relaxing, country setting.

Hello Kaye,Thank you so much for your wonderful teaching and your kind hospitality, it truly was a wonderful experience, one I am sure I will journey with you again…
We covered a lot in a very short time and I am already feeling the affects in my mind, body and soul..
The course really exceeded my expectations and I am so happy I have chosen the path of Kahuna massage.
I have been fortunate to go straight in to using my new found skills and those whom I have shared with have had “magical experiences”
One comment was “you have given me so much more than a massage”, so I have been able to gain insight and bring much needed positive energy to myself and those whom I touch,
it has a very up lifting effect 🙂 Must keep grounded!!
much love and hugs
Nicole April 2015 Received the DVDs… Love them!  These are a great resource for me. Thank you for letting me buy both DVDs.!Roz
