Ho’ono ho’iwi Healing – known as Bone Washing Client Reviews
♠ Karen explained that bone washing is a Hawaiian form of fully clothed energy healing that’s been practised for a very long time; “a process of clearing cherished wounds” and that I should try to maintain a focus on what it was that I wished to release. My first reaction was to think that’s an odd contraction because how could memories of bad life impacts held within bones be called cherished!
From my experience I soon realised that, Karen, was referring to energy of memories good or otherwise that I was holding onto within me, and that the intent of bone washing was to find those spots of negative trapped memories and to release them. Karen used of a series of small circular light pressure movements segmented along the body. I mostly experienced a very subtle and relaxing release of tension. however, along the side of my leg close to the knee which took a big hit it in a motorbike crash years back; I sensed a significant shift of something leaving me. Next morning, I awoke without an aching knee and no explanation for it but the Bone Healing. Thank you, Karen, for yet another extraordinary experience. James Bolland, Aberdeen
♠ I decided to try Karen’s Hawaiian Bone washing treatment with the intention of aiding relaxation, releasing tension and regaining focus and grounding. I’m not usually a fan of regular massages but this alternative treatment has me converted. The non invasive fully clothed style is comfortable and perfect for those like myself who are busy or a little shy. Karen took great care and time to explain the aim of bone washing and instantly made me feel at ease. Gentle pressure is applied to the muscles around the bones starting from the top of the body and working down.
Perfect pressure applied by Karen that is incredibly relaxing, releasing and leaves you feeling restored and peaceful. The treatment also gently encourages the receiver to acknowledge any past or present events that may be inhibiting growth and preventing healing and overcomes these barriers by working with aim, intention and forgiveness to self and others in a calm and relaxed way. For those looking to release tension, emotional and mental fatigue, or to centre themselves and regroup this is the ideal treatment. One 90 minute session left me feeling balanced, focused and deeply relaxed. I have no doubt a block booking would allow the recipient to really work towards Healing and restoration. Highly, highly recommend Karen and her wonderful work. Nicola, Aberdeen
♠ I was honoured to receive a Kahi Loa Hawaiian treatment from Karen last week. I wasn’t sure what to expect but knew it would be relaxing as Karen always creates a relaxing loving environment with her treatments. The treatment involves a 7 strokes healing massage, fully clothed, and each technique brought me deeper into a wonderfully relaxed space where I was able to zone out into a meditative state.During the treatment I felt little twinges of releasing energy and that night, for the first night in several weeks, I slept deeply. The next morning my lower back, which has been problematic for months, was looser and needed far less stretching than normal. Karen is first port of call for any holistic therapy as I trust her completely and just love the feeling I’m left with even hours after the treatment is finished. Angela, Aberdeen
♠ Bone Washing is a very relaxing and soothing experience where Karen gently massages in small circular movements systematically all over the body. She asked me to set my intention for releasing unwanted energy before the treatment. It left me feeling relaxed, peaceful and calm. Dana, Aberdeen
Kahi Loa Healing Client Reviews
♠ Had my 1st Kahi Loa shamanic healing treatment with Karen Rome yesterday and wasn’t quite sure what to expect. Karen explained the procedure thoroughly before we started, explaining it was done fully clothed, like Reiki or Shiatsu as oppose to a skin touch massage. The different strokes and techniques transported me into a totally relaxed blissful state right from the start, even the face ring on the coach didn’t bother me as she put some cloth over it to stop my face getting sweaty and sticking to it.
Felt the stress n tensions quickly wash away as I saw myself as an eagle soaring high, totally free as the wind blew through my feathers as Karen swept the stress and tension off of my physical body, it felt truly magical. If she hadn’t asked me softly to turn onto my back I think I would have fallen asleep as I was already in a deep meditative state. As I relaxed onto my back all I could see was the most amazing bright purple glowing and radiating from behind my closed eyes and felt Karen doing gentle strokes down the front of my body as I felt the energy move the stress and tension down my body and out through my feet, leaving me feeling light and energized. She gave me ample time to come back to myself, integrating my experience into this reality as she went and got me some water.
When I left I was amazed at how light and relaxed I felt, having felt so heavy as if the world was on my shoulders before I went in. Was releasing through yawning for quite a while afterwards. Had a lovely rejuvenating sleep that night and awoke feeling bright eyed and bushy tailed, even my teenage son holding me up the next morning didn’t phase me i just took it in my stride!
Huge heartfelt thank you for a beautifully relaxing treatment Karen in a warm safe place to totally let go. I booked another appointment the next day! Highly recommend a treatment from Karen as she truly works from the heart and loves what she does so you feel the love flowing through her treatments. A very gentle, loving, caring soul 🙏💕🙏 Thank You Karen you’re a Star 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Mo, Peterculter
♠ Kahi Loa with some Bone Washing ( Ho”ono ho’iwi )
Karen explained in full the principles of both of the above healing sessions, which sounded wonderful and something I definitely wanted to try. Karen is a very professional and caring therapist and put me at ease straight away.
The room had a lovely feel to it. I felt relaxed straight away especially when I sank into the very comfortable treatment bed.
We started with Kahi Loa a gentle healing treatment. I felt very safe. Karen’s touch was gentle and I could feel the warmth in her hands as she worked. I could feel something shifting in my body which she explained was a release of energy moving around. My session also covered bone washing (I thought how is she going to wash my bones)! The movements were very gentle. Karen picked up on a problem I hadn’t told her about and worked gently on that area. I was very aware of definite shifts in my body energy. I would certainly recommend these treatments. Maggie – Aberdeen
