Kahuna is an ancient technique that has its origins in the South Pacific Islands.

In Hawaiian Kahuna means "wise man", and in North America, it is known as "the person in charge".


In Ancient times Kahuna Bodywork was performed in the healing temples by Kahuna priests.

These were sacred and formal rituals, offered as ‘rites of passage’ to key members of the community and young adults, in order to develop a strong sense of social and family responsibility with expanded awareness and spiritual empowerment.


Nowadays Kahuna Bodywork is used as a profound way to support the release traumas and pain from the body, to completely relax the mind, the body, and to support the client in coming back into a space of centredness.

Kahuna honours the tradition and remains a powerful transformative journey for whoever is willing to dive deep into the heart.



Irene believes that through presence, nurturing and loving touch, the body finds its own safe space to let go, to restore, to reborn.

Kahuna is a very unique massage, a deeply therapeutic treatment that relaxes your mind, body and soul, bringing balance and harmony between them.

It has amazing effects at many different levels:

  • it flushes out the toxins

  • treats the lymphatic system​

  • improves circulation and sleep ​

  • It is also very effective when experiencing grief, stress, loneliness, anxiety, or any emotional distress

  • when in need to slow down,

  • or simply because YOU DESERVE IT!

Irene is a beautiful therapist, who always takes you through an incredible experience. I have really felt so many shifts with Irene in her Kahuna massages and always felt very supported and nurtured and a lot of help with releasing any blockages and uncovering breakthroughs!
She is so amazing, and I always feel centred,

restored and transformed after each session!
I highly recommend Irene, she is a powerful healer and a beautiful soul
