“It was an amazing experience, I felt so pampered and so relaxed, just chilled out on my couch for the rest of the day as was not capable of doing anything else.
I just love the Kahuna Experience, there is nothing else like it. it was like I was being massaged by more than one person, like getting both sides of me done at the same time, WOW…”

Where It Originally Came From : Hawaii
Ka Huna massage is the lushest of massages and was created by the priests in the ancient temples of Hawaii. Now that’s a religion I could embrace.
This massage was often received on special ceremonial days by Hawaiian royalty.
There are a few different styles, and until recently it was only passed down verbally from elders to the next generation.
Ripple practices the Ka Huna Temple style of body work from the the ancient Kahuna Lapa’ au who were the master massage practitioners.
The foot work for the Ka Huna massage comes from a dance (kind of like learning the steps for an aerobics class).
This dance was based on the ‘Frigate bird’ which is a large sea bird known for its amazing stamina, endurance and intuition in finding its way. It takes off from land in the morning and flies all day over the sea, feeding, before returning to land at dusk. This is the base for the “flying” that
Anyway, as we Ka Huna massage we also use the flying as our foot work.
KaHuna massage is a deep and rhythmical massage that indulges all the senses. The rhythm is intensely relaxing and works gently but deeply into the muscles using continuous flowing strokes.
Lots of oil is used during the massage and the therapist can massage your entire body, from head to toe, in the one continual flowing movement.
The energy comes from the use of this rhythm and movement, creating a continuous ebb and flow between you and the therapist.
The Ka Huna therapist uses the forearm, fingers, heel and palm of the hand in long, flowing movements over your body which is deep relaxing.
The arms sweep over the body in long movements to the pulse of the music, creating a very fluid massage like a bird flying through the sky.
It is a very beautiful, joyous, happy and lush style of massage. Ali has studied to Level 7 with Mette Sorenson at High Spirits Retreat
