Be taken on your own shamanic healing journey with sacred Hawaiian massage and   sound healing.

Welcome to Sacred Huna Healing, a place to receive the nurture and rejuvenation of Ka Huna Massage. This is an ancient Hawaiian healing practice that works with basalt hot stones, sound, meditation and massage. You will experience more than your average massage, as this is a ceremony based on hundreds of years of practice by Indigenous people of the Polynesian Islands. 


Karla is your practitioner, with over a decade of training and experience in Hawaiian healing techniques and Earth based medicine. As a facilitator of nature connection and rites of passage, Karla inherently holds space for you to return to your natural state of being. In this state you have a greater capacity for body awareness, mental clarity and self-healing. Her style is gentle and deeply meditative, allowing your nervous system to calm and your body to soften.

This massage is ideal for anyone who feels depleted in their body and their life. If you are looking for more alignment in your body and your life, you can embark on a transformational 3 hour healing journey. If you just need a re-boot and a really good massage, sessions start at 90 minutes allowing you time to fully receive the benefits of Ka Huna.

Ka Huna Massage - an Ancient Healing Art

Ka Huna massage has come from the ancient culture of the Polynesian islands. It is a dance and a ceremony with movements that flow along the energetic lines of the body like waves. It also involves under-body work that cradles and gently massages. Other components of this bodywork include stretching, joint mobility and vibrational healing. It is believed to be such a transformational medium that on some of the islands it was used as a rite of passage.


All the complimentary massage modalities that I incorporate in the massage are based from traditional Hawaiian healing arts, making it a truly unique healing experience that honours the origin of this work.

Karla massages the body with a deeply integrated sensitivity to the fundamental wisdom of Kahuna practice. She is guided both by her intensive training and by her intuitive feel, resulting in a beautiful and deeply feminine practice that allows for the presence of spirit. My experience of her bodywork has been exquisitely healing, as she naturally accesses and applies her energy to addressing disharmony in the physical, energetic and spiritual body. Karla offers a practice unique to my experience, and one that I would highly recommend to all on their healing path.
