The Ultimate Kahuna Massage
Kahuna massage, also known as Lomi Lomi, was created in the islands of the South Sea. In Hawaii it is called loving hands massage. This description gives a good indication to the intentions of this specific massage technique. Whereas most types of massage are focused on fixing certain problems like pain, stress and injury, Kahuna massage is focused on sending loving energy to the person receiving it. Everyone can agree that receiving loving energy is beneficial in many ways.
7 Principles of HunaThere are seven principles that govern the healing intentions of a Kahuna massage. Each one offers a unique benefit.
Ike is the principle of awareness. Awareness leads to introspection, which leads eventually to healing of self. When the therapist recognizes the recipient as a conscious and loving being, it supports the ability of the recipient to honor their own existence. Feeling the hands of the practitioner brings somatic awareness and allows for a greater mind-body connection.
Kala teaches that everything is connected, and there are no limits except the ones we put on ourselves. The fluid motions of Kahuna massage are continuous and unlimited. They help to erase the stop-and-start boundaries that our analytical minds use to create limitations. The massage begins to deepen the sense of inner freedom.
Makia suggests that energy flows to the things on which we place our focus. As the therapist focuses on the client, loving and compassionate energy flows into the physical and subtle bodies of the recipient. Most people scatter their focus on the mundane tasks of life. This causes stress in the mental and physical bodies. The rhythmic patterns of Kahuna massage help to clean the nervous system slate, redirecting outward flowing thoughts and energies back into the heart and back into the present moment.
Manawa brings focus on the power that is accessible in the present moment. As Makia gathers the outgoing focus, Manawa plants them into the now. The limitations of time begin to blur, and the mind-body connection can transcend normal understanding. The result can be great awakening or deep processing of traumatic events in our past, leading to a stronger sense of self.
Aloha is the stronger sense of self that results from Manawa. When one pulls all of their focus into present moment awareness, and allows for old memories and traumas to let go, the abundant happiness that is ever present in the heart begins to flow freely again.
Mana is the power that is inherent in all things. The flow of Aloha from the practitioner and from the heart of the receiver combine to generate a powerful confidence. When limitations have been removed, the focus gathered, the past released into the present, love realized, then the powerful spiritual center of confidence is accessible.
Pono is the sense of truth that results from the collaborative workings of the first six Huna principles. Truth of one’s own Self gives rise to the greater truths of life.
Sure Kahuna massage is great for your immune system, digestive system, circulatory system and respiratory system. It offers many benefits similar to other forms of massage. The real and lasting benefits of this loving massage technique have to be the planting of the seeds of the Huna principles. Once the seeds are planted by the therapist, then the garden within the receiver will grow and become fruitful.
We all want to live a more balanced life, and one of kinesiology’s aims is to help us find imbalances in our body so that we can work towards finding a sense of equilibrium.
A kinesiologist will assess your state of health by testing your muscles. Muscle testing doesn’t necessarily mean finding out whether your muscles are toned or not. The idea is that any imbalance – physical, chemical, nutritional or emotional can be detected by the variation of stress resistance in various muscle groups.
Kinesiology is a truly holistic therapy, in that it looks at the body as a whole and not as a series of separate parts. If a kinesiologist finds imbalances, he or she can try to increase the flow of energy by the use of acupressure and manipulation on certain points of the body to help energy circulate.
How Can Kinesiology Help Me? If you have an unspecified ache or pain that you can’t seem to get to the bottom of, kinesiology may be for you.
Kinesiology is also thought to be a powerful tool for identifying allergies. The practitioner will test the body’s reaction to different foods by placing the food item (or a homeopathic version of that food) over the body on a particular acupuncture point and then testing muscles. If the muscle reacts weakly an allergy or intolerance to that food is likely; if the muscle reacts strongly, the body probably reacts well to that food. This can be fantastic if you suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome, as it may help you to identify some of the triggers for you.
Other issues that may benefit from choosing kinesiology are:
The treatment has been known to have a powerful effect on a person’s emotional state as well. If you believe that your body has the ability to heal itself, consulting a kinesiologist may be of great benefit to you, as it is based on the premise that we simply need to tap into the body’s innate wisdom to find its way back to balance and harmony.
