I’ve been seeing Darinka for a number of years now. After every massage I leave, attuned, back-in -order and shifted (subtly and/or dramatically depending on my state of being) thanks to Darinka’s intuitive knowing and first class techniques. Highly recommended!!

In 2011 I embarked on my Ka-Huna journey, completing five courses at Mette’s Institute in Queensland, Australia.
Ka Huna 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 style around.

While the foundation of my style is rooted in ka huna, I integrate other modalities that I have trained in. This includes:

  • Mirimiri – Maori Healing
  • Chi Nei Tsang (Chinese abdominal massage)
  • Tibetan and Thai massage techniques
  • Hot Stones

I work with the pressure points, energy lines and centres of the body. Release work forms an integral part of a treatment, unless specifically requested otherwise, or due to illness or disease.

“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”

Your treatment is a full body oil massage, involving long flowing strokes where I use my hands, forearms and elbows. I move from flow to stillness to flow, to stillness again, releasing knots and trapped energy, then moving the energy around the body and out through the arms, head and feet. It is like a dance. The body rocked, pulled, stretched and held. I use hot stones to assist in the release of knots and to increase the elemental connection.

The rhythm and flow calms the nervous system, promoting deep relaxation. Breathing in your belly allows the mind to settle and assists the release of trapped energy. Most physical pain and tension in the body is rooted back to the emotions.
Although the body may be sitting and working all day, we are always generating thoughts and emotions which run like background programs. Many people experience unusual memories and emotional releases during a treatment and this is what makes this form of massage so powerful.

I offer an authentic and safe space for you to bring whatever is going on in your life to the table. Whatever is happening for you, it is welcome here, the invitation is to let go, receive and to drop what you are carrying.

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.

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.
