Kahuna pregnancy massage is a Polynesian full body massage. It is a safe and honouring session working to release stress and tension held on a physical, emotional and mental level of an individual. It is a beautiful meditative experience that allows a natural, loving bond to develop between mother and baby. A deep connection is established between mother and the tender soul she is carrying. A field of love and nurturing envelops the mother and permeates to touch the child within, creating a bond of love and oneness.
I prepare a nurturing and healing atmosphere and the massage soothes mother and baby alike.
