What is KAHUNA massage
Kahuna is a Hawaiian word for healer or shaman it literally means guardian of the secret. In old traditions the massage ceremony was used to perserve or improve health as well as for raising awarenes when important decisions were to be made. I chose this name because it shifts the view of masasage services from human body to whole human being.
My vision is to help people take care of their health in a holistic manner at both the physical
and spiritual levels.Having obtained five years hands on experience at Dr. Weber's
Physiotherapy Institute, I gained a valuable insight into how classical and
alternative medicine can be optimised when working together. As a masseuse, I worked in sports arena at the Ice-hockey club Acroni Jesenice, in therapy at the Physiotherapy Institute of Dr. Weber, as well as in the wellness beauty spa, Warmbad Therme.
In June 2018 I finished my Masters at the school of Reiki –and from September 2018, I
study manual therapy (myofascial release - Anatomy Trains method by Tom Myers), so I
have a wide range of techniques to offer. I am looking for the most effective way to
synchronise the body and mind.

Lomi Lomi – Hawaiian massage 75 min
Lomi Lomi or Hawaiian massage is a rythmic whole body massage which is performed to the
rhythm of traditional Hawaiian music. It is a very sensual massage appropriate for open and
not too shy people, as the client is uncovered for most of the treatment. The massage is
performed on an oily massage table without a sheet under or over the client which makes
the movements fluctuate, and is gentle over the whole body. It is a ritual that releases
emotional tension and allowes deep relaxation and sometimes even visions.
Whole body massage 55 min
This is a classical or Swedish whole body massage. Its characteristics are a smooth
superficial beginning which intensifies deeper into the muscles, followed by the
superficial thechniques being repeated. The pressure of the massage is always
directed toward the heart thus it has a significant effect on the vascular lymphatic
system. The alternating pressure from superfical to deep and back also
provides a benefical psychological effect .
Sports massage 50 min
Sports massage is suitable for professional and recreational athletes, as well as physical
workers. It is based on classical massage techniques with stronger pressure and additional
elements of passive stretching. The focus of the massage is on the parts of the body that
carry the most load in the particular sport or physical activity. This massage allows the tissue
to regenerate more quickly and restores its elasticity thus providing greater potential.
Fascial massage 50 min
Fascia is the outer wrapping of all muscles, bones and also internal organs and is very rich in
nerve endings. The massage is applied without oil which allows a better grip. Massage
techniques are very slow to allow the body to adapt. Because it affects the nervous system,
this kind of treatment has a significant impact on the posture of the body and overall muscle
tone. It is suitable forpeople who are moving in compensatory patterns due to injuries or larger loads. It also helps
to improve the structure and function of the tissue after insufficient rehabilitation.
Reflexology - Foot reflex massage 50 min
This massage affects the whole body through reflex points and areas on the foot conected to
the body part that it infuences. It works through the nerve impulses that are simulated on
the foot and then transmitted to the brain and transfered to the appropriate parts of the
body. Massage can be performed gently or with a strong pressure which provokes intense
pain, but promotes a strong therapeutic effect. It is a natural method for balancing the
energy levels of a person, and that contributes to better physical health.
Therapeutic massage 40 min
This massage covers a wide range of techniques, ranging from very mild harmonic to deep
muscular-fascial techniques as well as articulatory mobilization. It adresses the part of the
body that is already painful, therefore an active participation of the client in required. It is
necesary to describe the symptoms as accurately as possible as well ,as well as the feelings
that arise during treatment . It is recommended for people with pain in the musculoskeletal
system, vertigo , ongoing headaches and insomnia.
Lymph drainage 40 min
It is mainly used to treat swelling of the limbs in the case of injuries or swelling of the legs
due to the weakening of the lymphatic system caused by long-standing or seated positions.
The lymphatic system is like a human cleaning device therefore it is also used to improve the
immune system, and supports detox diets or can be used as an anticellulite treatment. It is
also recommended to improve skin conditions, after cosmetic surgery or after surgical
removal of the lymph nodes.
Partial massage (back, legs/arms, head, abdomen) 25/30 min
This kind of massage involves only one area of the body. Back massage is most often
required and can be performed at preferred pressure. However, any part of the body in
need of attention can be addressed. In the case of a head or abdomenal massage, multiple
repetitions are recommended to achieve a long-term therapeutic effect such as reduction of
headaches or the regulation of digestion.
Reiki relaxation treatment 20 min
Reiki treatment is a Japanese relaxation technique that is carried out by simply the laying of
hands on the body. This is an energy technique that allows an increased flow of life energy.
In Japanese culture it is known under the name KI, and REI means supreme, holy or royal. By
laying the hands on the body we direct the increased flow of energy into the area under the
hands. It depends on the openess of a client as to how much energy will be accepted. It
usually produces a light sensation, calms the breath and brings about profound relaxation.
The treatment is suitable for people who find it hard to relax on their own, or after long and
exhausting diseases and for people with symptoms of burnout.
Kinesiotaping 10-15 min
Kinesiotaping is a technique of applying elastic, self-adhesive tape on the skin. A different
style of cutting and applying the tape is used depending on the effect we want to achieve. It
may be an independent treatment, or in combination with a massage for a longer effect. The
muscular technique influences the muscle tone and reduces muscle pain. The ligament
technique helps stabilise the joints and is recommended for training, competitions or long
hikes. The lymphatic technique reduces swelling and has a pain relieving effect.
