Hawaiian Kahuna Bodywork

What is Kahuna Bodywork?
by Ki'a'i Ho'okahi Weber


Kahuna Bodywork comes from Hawaii, but by Principle does not teach something Hawaiian. Instead it teaches people to access their own inherited genetic wisdom. It shows students 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 giver and the receiver of the bodywork.

Kahuna Bodywork is not a form of massage. Rather, it 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. Apart from the possible therapeutic effect the major benefit of Kahuna Bodywork lies in the client's greater sensitivity and understanding of his/her own body.

Kahuna Bodywork requires great sensitivity and an extensive knowledge of physical human movement. All bodywork techniques and moves are applied with Ki energy through the bodyworker's own body movement.

Kahuna Bodywork is based on movement. Compassion, and the required motion, positioning, leverage, posture, and focus in performance of bodywork is taught through an ancient precisely patterned movement, called Ka'alele au. By constantly refining his/her own Ka'alele au movements, the student learns to design technique sequences appropriate for the individual.

The first aim for Kahuna Bodywork is to use stroking techniques to relax and reassure the client. Once relaxation is achieved, specific deeper work can be commenced. It is important that a relaxed and pain-free state is maintained throughout the entire session. (Pain free does of course not mean 'without sensation'.) Deeper work may involve specific Ka'alele au movement techniques, and deep point pressure using leverage and focus to release muscles, tendons, and ligaments, and joint movement techniques.

Stroke movements and specific patterns are initiated through the Ka'alele au movement, encouraging improved cell communication, and synchronisation of the heart beat and breath in the client almost immediately. To achieve this state of communication, the bodyworker has to work entirely without intent, which makes this work very different to other modalities in its foundation.

A Kahuna Evolution Bodyworker (Advanced Diploma level in Australia) understands the ancient concept of movement induced acceleration of molecular communication, and is able to assist in advancing and strengthening the perception of Self.

It is interesting to note that many websites claim that this Kahuna Bodywork has been around for thousands of years, or has been performed in ancient Hawaiian temples. The creation and timeline of this intriguing form of bodywork is foundationally different!
