Melanie Jane Hughes would like to invite you to be a part of the ‘Rewards and Loyalty Offering’.
Please continue reading for further info.

As a valued and respected client, your well being is something I take deeply into consideration which is why I want to  encourage you to come and see me regularly to maintain your well being. The benefits of regular body work are so beneficial and to work this into your weekly, fortnightly, monthly, tri-annual routine will far outweigh the cons of denying yourself this deep nurturing. It is called prevention and maintenance of well being for a reason. I know this all full well how beneficial physical, emotional, mental and spiritual maintenance that this service I provide can offer hence making a point of receiving regularly myself.

The regular practice of receiving body work ensures that you will continue to feel healthier, happier & have a much higher chance of remaining clarity, overall wellbeing and the ability to ‘MASTER’ life from a position of presence, calmness and deeper state of balance.

Prevention is much easier than cure – don’t wait until you are “broken” to see me again. You choose to live your life as the creator of your world, so choose the best for yourself.

As part of the “Rewards and Loyalty Offering”, you can purchase 10 x 90 minute Ka Huna Bodywork sessions, or pay as you go. Whether you visit regularly, such as fortnightly, once a month or more, after purchasing your tenth session, you earn yourself a complimentary 90 minute Ka Huna Bodywork session.

You can choose to gift that to a friend or relative or use it for yourself.

Refer a friend and when they secure a booking, you receive a $10 voucher to use on any of the services I provide. (Except for workshops, events or online programs/sessions)

Ka Huna Massage and Bodywork

Ka Huna Bodywork originated in the South Pacific and was used during Rites of Passage as a transformational massage and healing system.  It is also known as Hawaiian Temple Style massage and Lomi Lomi.

This beautiful form of bodywork provides a holistic approach to healing by balancing the body-mind in its physical, emotional and spiritual dimension.

Ka Huna Bodywork is unique in a number of ways.  Melanie uses her hands, forearms and elbows and moves around the table (using flowing rhythmic Hula and Tai Chi style movements).  I work with energy to apply soft and deep tissue massage.  Music is played and Melanie attunes to the flow of the massage to harmonise the various rhythms within your body, mind and subtle energetic body. These rhythms mimic the elements of Earth, Air, Water and Fire. A focus of breath, voice and sound is used through out the session and strongly encouraged by the receiver. As when you allow yourself to surrender, open and be vulnerable, the deeper the healing or more profound is the experience.
It provides a passage that has ability to bring forth an awareness within you that broadens your understanding of yourself.  Bringing you healing on all levels that is deeply therapeutic, and relaxing at the same time.

The sessions are either 1 hour, 90 minutes (preferred) or 2 hourly.

You may also like to discuss opportunities to combine a few of my service offerings and packages available.

Ka Huna Bodywork is a style that was developed in Hawaii by Kahu Abraham Kawai’i, the Kahuna who developed this style of bodywork in the 80s.  He came to visit and teach in Australia for the first time in March 1998, at the old Mount Warning Lodge. Then the ‘massage’ was just part of Kahuna training, one of the modalities Kahu used to teach people is Kahuna perspectives.

Your body is a temple and Ka Huna bodywork is a modality with Ancient principles that teaches and allows you to experience as such.
