Through the experience of living and working as a massage therapist on the island of Maui, I discovered lomilomi, the ancient form of Hawaiian healing massage. Dr. Maka'ala Yates, a Kanaka Maoli (of Hawaiian ancestry) is a highly respected Kumu Lomi Elima (master teacher of lomilomi). As my good friend and mentor, he has been fundamental in guiding me to a greater understanding of the principals of Hawaiian healing. He inspires the vision we represent.
Although we live in modern times, to which some of our cutting-edge spa treatments can attest, our spirit lives an ancient truth within our hearts that sustains and endures.
It is our hope that through your time at our spa you will reconnect with yourself…that you will relax, rejuvenate and revitalize.
