Dan Williams

Working with his hands has always come naturally for Dan. As a professionally trained classical violinist, the human body also became part of his repertoire, with 12 years of work and study in the field of massage.

“It’s the connection between the body, mind and spirit that makes Kahuna massage so unique. It really is the “limousine” of bodywork, enabling the practitioner to utilize all the tools and techniques they have studied over the years, within a safe, nurturing and dynamic flow, providing the client the perfect space for deep healing and relaxation.”
