Sexological Bodywork (Educational)
Sexological bodywork supports and educates individuals, couples and groups in learning to direct their own personal and sexual development, to learn more about their bodies, sex and sexuality, or work through sexual issues or concerns. This work is client led, one way touch, the Practitioner remains fully clothed and wears gloves.
Teaching involves a variety of instructive modalities, including breath work, foundations of touch, active receiving, mapping, scar tissue remediation, Wheel of Consent and Orgasmic Yoga coaching.
It’s the Sex Education you should have received but never did. We believe that sexual health is a basic human right. This work is not clinical, it is individualised holistic education and a series of sessions is recommended for optimal learning.
"People learn to endure. We forget – or don’t know - what our Yesses and No’s feel like. And once we’ve been trained to endure, it’s hard to get out of that habit. Enduring is a “default” mode for sexual experience in our culture."
Can be done in sessions or for longer periods over weekends or several days.
Cost : 160 for a 90 minute session or book 5 sessions, pay for 4.
Hawaiian Temple Bodywork
Kahuna massage is a therapeutic massage technique based on the teachings and practices of the ancient Hawaiian Kahunas. The word "huna" is an amalgam of two words: 'hu' is a word for the male energy and 'na' is the female energy. In the language of native Hawaiians, "huna" means "secret knowledge" and a master practitioner of any of the huna arts is known as a "kahuna.
What is Kahuna Massage?
Kahuna massage differs from other types of massage therapy in two important respects:
Kahuna massage technique is a rhythmic dance for the whole body. The practitioner uses his or her fingers, palms, wrists and even their forearms as they move rhythmically around the table.
In Kahuna massage, the intention and focus of the practitioner is of paramount importance. They are trained to be totally focused on their client with an attitude of love and compassion. This is the essence of the "aloha" spirit that is sacred to the people of Hawaii.
It is often said that Kahuna massage is a holistic natural therapy designed to heal the body, mind and spirit.
Benefits of Kahuna Massage
Kahuna massage is said to stimulate the lymphatic, circulatory, respiratory and digestive systems, so may be of therapeutic benefit for a variety of disorders, including irritable bowel syndrome, asthma and headaches amongst others. It is said to be particularly beneficial for a number of emotional problems, including:

Vocal Coaching (The Naked Voice)
For many of us we have become ‘stuck’ in our throat, we have forgotten the wisdom that sits in our bones. How can we deeply listen to the wisdom within and hear that Voice?
The Naked Voice is a place to come back to our primal instinctive selves, to feel the wild and holy Voice that lives within us. It’s a place of embodiment where we sound through our ‘Whole’ body and from the place of our most creative source: the Womb. Speaking or singing with the intention to transform, not perform. To express, not impress, to come back to naked vulnerability and truth, at times beyond our conscious awareness. Using tools of deep listening, breath, sound, movement and deep embodied inquiry.
I start by listening to the story around your Voice. Unconditional, curious. This in itself can be profound.
I listen to you speak or sing and feel what's going on in your body, your breath, your throat. I listen for the raw essence.
Can be done over Zoom, allow an hour.
I have 25 years experience as a Classical/Opera Singer with years of Vocal Training myself in NZ and in the UK (post-graduate study)
A counselling session using somatic (of the body) tools of inquiry, working with the body/mind connection and living with more awareness in the body. Deep listening and presence is held to enable you to feel safe, become curious so you can move through emotions and make change. Through breath, sound, movement and touch we can regulate the neural circuitry in our bodies, change our brains and nervous systems to be more present, connect more, have more choice, have more vibrancy and access more sensation and pleasure. Simple yet highly effective and profound work
This is a mainstream branch of psychotherapy that emphasizes the integration of mind and body. I will draw on a range of techniques including physical interaction (e.g. touch, movement and breathing).
“I really appreciated the support to explore the edges of what was comfortable and found that through this gently held space, I was able to completely immerse myself in the experience. The wisdom gained through this journey continues to resonate through all aspects of my daily life”
Cost: $100 an hour
