“I’ve been seeing Darinka for a number of years now. After every massage I leave, attuned, back-in -order and shifted thanks to Darinka’s intuitive knowing and first class techniques. Highly recommended !!“
Ka Huna & Lomi Lomi is an intuitive and heart centred style of bodywork based on the practical and spiritual foundations of the Huna philosophy from Hawaii. It is a wholistic form of physical therapy that aims to connect body and mind through breath, flow, rhythm and movement. Dynamic and unique, Ka Huna is unlike any other massage styles around.
“Lomilomi is a word in the Hawaiian and Samoan languages. Lomi, means “to knead, to rub, or soothe; to work in and out, as the paws of a contented cat.”
This form of massage was said to be originally used as a right of passage, to facilitate an individual during a time of transition and transformation; support the manifestation of Self. This bodywork is also known as Trans-personal, as we are working beyond the mind and personality.
During your session, you are respectfully draped, and warm oil is applied to your body in gentle, yet firm rhythmical long flowing strokes up and down your body, in a combination of hands, forearms and elbows.
Moving from flow to stillness to flow, to stillness again, It is like a dance. The body is kneaded, rocked, pulled, stretched and held. The rhythm and flow calms the nervous system, promoting deep relaxation and the release of stored tension/emotions which are held deep in the body.
The purpose of this style of bodywork is to awaken the body consciousness, to assist the individual to expand upon themselves. We are working beyond the mind, with the natural intelligence of the body to clear the natural resistances in the form of trapped emotions or memories that have accumulated and are held in the subtle layers of the body.
Yoga works in a similar way, as a form of self-massage. By bringing our conscious awareness to what feels stuck in the body, we are allowing greater access of life force (Prana), through the tides of breathing to permeate our reality.
I began my training at Mette’s Institute in Queensland in 2011, and draw wisdom from Jody Mountain, and the wisdom teachings of Kahu Abraham, the founder and creator of Ka Huna Bodywork. I have been working professionally for the last 5 years, and weave in my own synthesis and blend of movement, flow and form.
While the main form of my sessions are Ka Huna/Lomi based, I also integrate elements of Cranial Sacral & Chi Nei Tsang (Chinese abdominal massage)

I received the most blissful and healing Ka Huna massage from Darinka. I loved every minute of it. Her technique was superb.
She was able to release the muscle spasm I had in my back, which was a great relief. She also used hot stones and energy work that gave this extra special flavour to the experience.
I couldn’t recommend her highly enough!
“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”
