“Darinka – thank you so much!!! Your massage was fantastic and cleared out whatever was ailing me. I went home feeling better already and was able to have a good nights sleep and felt fine today too”
In 2011 I embarked on my Ka-Huna journey, completing five courses at Mette’s Institute in Queensland, Australia. I have recently been working @ Sydney Kahuna Centre in Paddington.
Ka Huna is a temple style, intuitive and heart centred style of bodywork based on the practical and spiritual foundations of the Huna philosophy from Hawaii.
Ka Huna Bodywork is a wholistic form of physical therapy that serves as an intermediary between body and mind through breath, rhythm and movement. Powerful, dynamic and unique, Ka Huna is unlike any other massage styles around. The benefits are hard to ignore.
While the foundation of my style comes from Ka-Huna, I choose to blend and integrate specific techniques from other modalities that i have trained in. This includes: Chi Nei Tsang (chinese abdominal massage) Tibetan and Thai massage and Ayurvedic Marma therapy.
“I would highly recommend Darinka to anyone who needs deep integrated & healing body work” – Diane
During your session you will experience long and deep full body strokes that involve the hands and forearms, which has been described as a feeling of waves or water moving over the body. It is a dance. Both hands and arms work at the same time, creating a trance like sensation. The idea is to give the client a strong sense of being in their body, in an attempt to ease the incessant chatter of the mind. The rhythm and flow calms the nervous system, promoting deep relaxation. You will be asked to breathe into your belly, slowly and gently and will hear my breath from time to time as well. This creates a flow and connection between therapist and client. Breath is directly associated with our consciousness, by focussing on breath when there is pain and tightness, you assist in the process of release, rather than tensing up and feeling stuck or trapped
I offer a safe space for you to bring whatever is going on in your life to the table. I have many clients who have been going through major life changes, challenges, grief as well as the daily stresses. I have other clients who just need to feel heard, held and nurtured, and others who just need a firm massage to ease tired and sore muscles.
It is my aim to create a safe and nurturing space for you to let go of the mind, troubles and concerns, and connect to yourself again.
