To try and define Hawaiian Ka Huna Massage at Aroha Love is like trying to describe what a flower looks smells and feels like to some who have never seen that flower before. You only ever really ‘know’ by the experience of holding the flower in your hands and breathing in its lush fragrance and being in awe of its magical beauty.

Like the essence of a flower, Hawaiian Ka Huna Massage is beyond words and in that moment of giving and receiving it is best to describe the experience as pure love. Ka Huna Massage is a celebration of our humanity; it is the massage of life. The massage techniques consist of the view that Hawaiian people have; that all aspects of the body are one, believing that the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual are all part of the ‘whole self’.

What makes Ka Huna such a very special style is the combination of movement, dance, rhythm, breath, energy and massage. 

Rosanna is a Ka Huna massage specialist and is in constant movement around the massage table, following specific patterns of foot placement and body posture. Her arms, elbows and hands sweep over the body in long, flowing movements to the pulse of peaceful music, creating a very fluid and rhythmical massage.

The unstructured nature of the massage strokes switches the rational mind off and allows for deep body focused relaxation. 

The results of Aroha Ka Huna Massage are direct and very powerful, requiring little time for integration. Recipients feel immediate changes in the needed areas, be they physical, emotional, spiritual or mental.

This treatment is deeply relaxing to the extreme!

Aroha Hot Stone combined with Aroha Bodywork, incorporating long smooth flowing strokes, the muscles are gently nurtured and softened for the heated stones to work their magic on your back.

This special treatment session is closed with a gentle Chakra Balancing.

Energy - Fertility - Digestion - Healing

The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy® are inspired by the ancient Central American healing traditions of the Maya.  Developed by Dr. Rosita Arvigo, this modality grew out of her apprenticeship with acclaimed Maya Shaman - Don Elijio Panti. 

These techniques address the physical health and position of pelvic and abdominal organs and any emotional holding patterns found therein. Soft and gentle manipulations are used to reposition misaligned organs, thereby stimulating circulation of blood, nerve, lymph and chi to support the body’s innate capacity to self heal.

Dr. Rosita Arvigo learned the original Maya techniques over a 10 year apprenticeship with Don Elijio Panti, the great Maya Shaman of Belize. She was also exposed to other central American ancient traditions that represent an unbroken chain of knowledge handed down from generation to generation of shamans, midwives and healers. Unifying this all with over thirty years of training and experience in the natural sciences of massage, naprapathy, herbology, and spiritual healing; Dr. Arvigo developed the techniques which now bear her name.

The techniques include abdominal and sacral massage, castor oil applications, pelvic steaming, herbal preparations, and intention. A strong emphasis is placed on optimal reproductive anatomy and the uterus is repositioned via gentle external manipulation. 

The Arvigo Technique of Maya Abdominal Therapy® is a non-invasive external massage technique which creates homeostasis-balance within and hemodynamic-good blood circulation in the body. The Arvigo Technique® improves the circulatory, lymphatic, nervous systems and the flow of energy throughout the body. This technique allows the uterus and digestive organs to return to their proper position, releasing physical and emotional congestion, improving health greatly.

Tilted/misaligned uterus • Prolapsed uterus and/or bladder • Fertility challenges • Difficult pregnancy and delivery • Chronic miscarriages • Painful and/or irregular menstrual cycles and ovulation • Blood clots during menstruation and excessive bleeding • Dark thick blood at beginning and end of menses • PMS/Depression • Uterine and/or bladder infections • Ovarian cysts • Uterine fibroids and polyps • Painful intercourse • Difficult menopause • Pelvic congestion/heaviness and pain • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) • Chronic Constipation • Gastroesophageal Reflux (GERD) • Liver and stomach congestion • Superficial and deep scar tissue • Hysterectomy

Vaginal steams (Bajos, in Spanish) have a long history of use by traditional healers in various parts of the world, especially in Central America. Their popularity has been steadily growing in the West, and for good reason – vaginal steams are very beneficial for a wide variety of conditions, from painful menstrual cramps to infertility to nourishment of the area. They can help the uterus empty itself more completely, dislodging old tissue and blood that may have been there for months or even years.

‘Rosanna from Aroha is a miracle worker. I've had a number of Arvigo and Steam treatments from her leading up to fertility treatment which resulted in a pregnancy. I have no doubt that the work I did with Rosanna prepared my womb for the implantation of the embryo. I also found the treatment incredibly relaxing and it relieved stress in a way that I had not experienced before. In the past my stomach had always felt quite tight and I had lots of digestion issues. The self-care Rosanna taught me transformed my stomach into a soft stress free zone in a very short amount of time. I felt connected to my whole body and felt more alive. Once I have my baby I will be going straight back to Rosanna for after birth care. I believe that every woman would benefit from this treatment no matter what your circumstances are. I could not recommend this treatment with Rosanna more highly.' ~ Angela Maurice

* This treatment is not recommended during menses, immediately following pelvic surgery, during the 1st trimester of pregnancy or where an active infection or cancer is present in the pelvic region.

Believed to have begun in Tibet thousands of years ago. Reiki practitioners channel energy in a particular pattern to heal and harmonise. Unlike other healing therapies based on the premise of a human energy field, Reiki seeks to restore order to the body where vital energy has become unbalanced.

Reiki energy has several basic effects; it brings about deep relaxation and peace, disperses negative energy blockages, detoxifies and purifies the system, provides vitality and increases the vibrational frequency of the body.

A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person; including body, emotions, mind and spirit, creating many beneficial effects that include feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Perfect for those going through extreme stress and illness.

Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of energy healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and always creates a positive, beneficial effect.

Reiki also works in conjunction with and supports all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote healing recovery.

Your Reiki session consists of you being fully clothed on the massage table. The practitioner begins with the laying on of hands directly to your face, head and body, concentrating on traditional Reiki hand positions to assist the flow of energy through the body. You will feel an intense warmth from the practitioner's hands resulting in deep healing and relaxation.

Together we are focused on intention, mantra and well-being and as Reiki energy flows, you will discover and feel the incredible feeling of warm circulating energy with our Aroha Reiki sessions.

The Aroha stress package has been designed to allow people to release stress related tension from the body and mind. Healing massages are well documented and known to be effective for both acute and chronic pain. A good massage will assist to break emotional patterns. Suppressing our feelings can embed emotion in muscular tension. Many years of experience has taught us as bodyworkers, that the tension stores the emotion. Carrying these feelings around with us can lead us to react stereotypically in situations where other responses might produce better outcomes.

Skilled human touch reassures and nourishes us, allowing us to feel ‘lighter’ and less burdened with life. The sensitivity, trust and communication good massage requires, reminds us that working together can achieve great results. It is the fastest way to deeply surrender the control that keeps us stressed and armoured. And it feels great!
