‘Kahuna Bodywork – a healing modality using a ‘backdoor’ approach via the physical body, bypassing the subconscious guardians that may have patterned the body, the mind, and the spirit. ‘
Ki’a’i Ho’okahi Weber
What is Kahuna Bodywork?
On a physical level Kahuna Bodywork feels very much like a deeply relaxing massage. Clients often state after a treatment that they felt like I have multiple arms! Others comment on the rhythmical flowing motion of the bodywork.
Kahuna Bodywork works like a dynamic re-patterning process on body, mind and spirit that gives clients the opportunity to realign themselves and change old non-contributing patterns within their bodies.
A Kahuna Bodyworker requires great sensitivity and an extensive knowledge of physical human movement. When training as a Kahuna Bodyworker one learns how to access pathways to physically, mentally or spiritually unexplored areas within the Self. The result of these explorations is multilevel and can be subtle or foundationally life changing, for both the bodyworker and the receiver of the bodywork.
Kahuna Bodywork is based on movement. Compassion, and the required motion, positioning, leverage, posture, and focus in performance of bodywork. All bodywork techniques and ‘moves’ are applied with Ki energy through the bodyworker’s own body movement.
What happens during a treatment?
During a Kahuna Bodywork treatment stroking techniques are used to relax and reassure the client. Once relaxation is achieved, specific deeper work can be commenced. Deeper work may involve specific movement techniques, and deep point pressure applied using leverage and focus to release muscles, tendons, and ligaments, and joint movement techniques.
Stroke movements and specific patterns encourage improved cell communication, and synchronisation of the heart beat and breath in the client almost immediately. To achieve this state of communication, the bodyworker works entirely without intent, which makes this work very different to other modalities in its foundation.
Kahuna Bodywork has a strong therapeutic effect, however the major benefit of Kahuna Bodywork lies in the client’s greater sensitivity and allows for a deeper understanding of his/her own body.
I have trained with the Australian College of Kahuna Sciences under the guidance of Ki’a’i Ho’okahi Weber and the lineage of Kahu Abraham Kawai’i.

comes before any other skill,
for the skill exists
