Fiona has studied in Australia, the UK, USA, Switzerland and Belize under the preeminent practitioners: Ki’a’i Ho’okahi Weber, a direct student of Kahu Abraham Kawai’i, the last traditional Hawaiian Kahuna; Miss Beatrice Waight, a traditional Maya midwife, healer and herbalist; Tammi Lynn Kent; physiotherapist and originator of Holistic Pelvic Care TM, Pauline Venning; recognized leading Polarity Therapy teacher, Patricia Farnsworth; recognized Cranio Sacral and Myofascial Release teacher and leader in Australia and Miranda Gray; originator and trainer of The Moon Mother Blessing and Healings.
Fiona’s journey started during personal life change when she discovered through her own experience that bodywork supports people going through stress, transition and big life changes.
Since then she has dedicated her life to her own growth and how to support that of others. In 2001 Fiona began working with various bodywork modalities to guide and aid people through their journey of life.
Fiona now works with women along their personal journey of life – menstruation, fertility, pregnancy, birth, menopause and beyond. She recognises these major Rites of Passage of women, and how these impact our Being and health. With guidance from Fiona about which modality is appropriate, clients often come through a serious of appointments supporting their healing journey and aiding them towards greater health and awareness of their body and Self. Fiona feels that the pelvis is a powerhouse of wisdom, and accessing this personal knowledge is an empowering and self affirming experience.
Each client presents their own unique needs so Fiona’s approach is to bring to bear the techniques that will help each person unlock their patterns and reconnect to their own source of energy.
Fiona thoroughly enjoys sharing and spreading her work to women in need. As well as her own practices in Adelaide she has also worked in London and Thailand.
Kacie is a Qualified Kahuna Bodywork practitioner as well as an Advanced Pregnancy Massage Therapist and Therapeutic Massage Therapist.
Studying here in Adelaide at the South Australian Health and Education Centre she gained necessary tools to begin working with people and the body. In 2009 after receiving a Kahuna Bodywork she began her training at the Australian College of Kahuna Sciences in NSW. Here she obtained a Certificate IV and discovered a modality that not only empowered her but also her clients. Kacie recently completed her training in Advanced Pregnancy massage in VIC. This means she has the skills to support women in all stages of pregnancy and labor, and post natally once their baby is born. At this stage she is focussing her skills on pregnancy and post natal massage, and is open for advice with labor and delivery massage options.
Kacie is committed to ongoing training and self development. Kacie believes that we have the capacity to lift each other up and reflect the beauty of who we are through what we do. Her journey has taken her to New Zealand to live in community where she practiced meditation daily with a spiritual teacher.
More recently she travelled to Nepal where she joined a group of women contributing to a community program for women, sharing knowledge in their fields of health and art. When she in not working she enjoys tending to a home garden and spending time by the ocean. Kacie feels that connecting to who we are in essence through the body to be an imperative part of life. She has found Kahuna Bodywork to be a means in which this connection with Self; our essential nature is made. She now enjoys extending her connection skills to include mother and baby, as she is fulfilled supporting women and their growing bodies with pregnancy and post natal massage.
