Ka Huna bodywork is unique in a number of respects. The practioner uses their hands, forearms and elbows and moves around the table (using flowing Hula and Tai Chi style movements).

Music is played and the practioner attunes the flow of the massage to harmonise the various rhythms within the client’s body, mind and soul.
