Meet Our Massage Therapists
Beth was great at working on my neck to relieve the pain and tension …John Hiscox
I feel much better now-
Since 1998 it has been my great pleasure to work in a field I truly love. I am truly my happiest when I am meeting new people and practicing massage, bodywork and energy healing. It has been my personal journey of healing to explore the mind/body connection in depth and from that realize that our outer conditions have their beginnings in our thought processes and belief systems. When we have understanding of how the mind contributes to our physical problems, we can take a big sigh of relief because the mind can be changed!
In addition to wonderful modalities like Swedish, Deep Tissue, Sports, Shiatsu, Reflexology and Lomi Lomi massage, I have achieved great results using Quantum Touch, A Touch for Health (applied kinesiology), BodyTalk, The Emotion Codes, EFT, PSTEC and acupressure massage. Bringing the mind, body and spirit back into balance leaves the client in the best possible place for continued healing.
My initial training came from The Body Therapy Institute in Santa Barbara Ca. where I was blessed to learn from some of the finest instructors of that time.
Great Massage Today!Jo
Professional, thorough massage delivered by Sarah. She paid attention to all of my trouble areas. How cool to have a massage in your home (or in this case rental home!)-
The beautiful and healing art of massage first caught my interest when I was 13. After a strenuous sports activity, I would trade massages with friends and occasionally receive a massage from a professionally trained massage therapist. Later, while in college, having a positive impact on people’s lives became my life purpose and in my senior year I decided I wanted to attend massage school instead of pursuing a career associated with my chemistry degree. This moment of clarity occurred one day in my medicinal chemistry class as we were learning about the side effects of pharmaceutical treatments. It dawned on me that my path to helping people would be to use alternative healing approaches instead of surgery and pharmaceuticals.
I attended Hokulani Massage Academy on the Big Island of Hawaii immediately after college and once I dove into learning how to share the healing ways of massage, I immediately knew I was in harmony with my passion.
Massage is a way to keep the body in check by breaking up congested areas and preventing others from forming. We often underestimate how capable our bodies are of healing themselves and I strive to work with the body to prevent injuries and to help those that have already occurred.
Releasing the tension in the body helps release the stress we hold in the mind. It helps us think more clearly and calmly, thereby, allowing us to deal with everyday stresses in a healthier way. My goal is for the whole body to work together in harmony so it can function at its optimum level. I enjoy working with each person to create a massage that will meet its specific needs.
As a massage therapist, I am constantly learning and growing to provide my clients with an experience that leaves them feeling lighter, relaxed, and renewed.

Renee, my massage therapist was outstanding. She has excellent therapeutic skills, as well as a truly calm and healing presence. I highly recommend this fine company with extremely reasonable rates.-
Aloha kakou! (Greetings to all)
I was born and raised in Hilo on the Island of Hawaii to the sound of Hilo’s waterfalls in Ka Nahele (the rain forests). My ancestors reside in the sound of each rain drop as it falls from leaf to leaf. Growing up in this magical place of great Mana (powerful life essence) has inspired and charged my being to do great good for others.
Assisting people in their healing, through my hands, was gifted to me through my family lineage and massage therapy came natural to me with great proficiency. Through a series of mysterious events, I discovered that massage is one of my most cherished purposes … massage is my Ala (path) in life. Wonderful and unbelievably great things were happening to people after they left my massage room. At massage school, more and more people were telling me that problems they had for years were actually gone. As positive results with my clients continued, I began to realize that something more than the “usual” massage was happening.
Whether I am working on someone with a physical injury, someone going through emotional pain or a combination of the two; The Spirit of Aloha and gratitude fills my heart greatly that I can be an instrument of healing for that person in that moment. There is still much pain in the world in various forms so if I can help ease that pain for you through massage and with The Spirit of Aloha, I am grateful for the opportunity to make a difference for you.
Mahalo nui loa (thank you so much) and I hope to meet you soon.
I live in a resort town with some of the best message therapists around…This was the best message that I have ever had! Ashlie truly has healing hands and she cares. She makes sure she understands what is going on with your body before you get started. And she is a wonderful soul! Ashlie is beyond Amazing.John B
It is truly a blessing to be able to offer the Spirit of Aloha through my hands in one of the most beautiful places on the earth.
I moved to Maui in 2012 to attend the Maui School of Therapeutic Massage and graduated from the 1,000 hour advanced program. The first time I received an authentic Lomi Lomi massage, I felt all the elements of the island come into play. The soothing, flowing motion like the waves of the ocean with the firmness and depth of the mountains. The result was a profound opening of my body, a softening of my heart and a deeper connection with the Island. I wanted to share that with others and have dedicated over 250 hours to Lomi Lomi Massage training.
Since that profound experience, I have found my home here on the Big Island of Hawaii where I continue to learn and grow both personally and as a therapist.
My intent in my offering is to share the Aloha Spirit with you and to help facilitate a deeper connection with yourself and with the Island.
The focus of my work is centered around releasing and opening up the spine and all of its attachments because this is where it all begins. My background of training includes Deep Tissue, Swedish, Sports Massage, Pregnancy, Hot Stones, Structural Integration, Back Walking, Lymphatic Drainage, among other things. I am currently training in Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy to address pain and dysfunction.
I use a combination of modalities in each treatment depending on your needs and desires. My intent is to share the Aloha Spirit with you and to help facilitate a deeper connection with yourself and with the Island.
I look forward to meeting you! Mahalo.
We had the most relaxing, intuitive massages by Oriana. She was so kind and warm and listened intently to our needs. I felt so calm and blissed out during and after the massage. One of the best massages I’ve had! And in the comfort of our own space … Highly recommend!
I am a second generation massage therapist who grew up highly valuing health and wellbeing, recognizing the correlation between how one feels and quality of their life. I believe in the body’s innate wisdom and ability to find balance and I aim to assist in that process.
Massage is a subtle, yet profound art which has the power to heal and act as a catalyst for transformation.
After graduating from the Hawaiian Islands School of Massage in 2009, I have been practicing in Hawaii and Alaska.
The tool box of modalities I use includes but is not limited to Lomi Lomi, myofascial unwinding and releasing, cranio-sacral, positional release, trigger point therapy, Swedish, deep tissue, joint manipulation and reiki.
I am training for an Ironman race and have a few issues going on as well as regular tight areas. Kyle does a fantastic deep tissue massage and I recommend him 100%. I will definitely be seeing Kyle and using Tiare again.
The mana ‘aina of Hawaii, or spirit of the land, augments the power and efficacy of massage therapy. I feel privileged and deeply grateful to practice the healing arts in such a magical place.
As an athlete and long-time receiver of bodywork and alternative medicine, observing the benefits of these modalities led me to the practice. After receiving my B.S. in Kinesiology from the College of William and Mary, I studied and apprenticed at Hokulani Massage Academy in Waimea.
My massage blends lomilomi, shiatsu, swedish, and reflexology on a canvas of deep tissue and structural kinesiology.
When not doing bodywork I enjoy surfing, paddling, hiking, practicing yoga, and snowboarding (whenever possible!). Aloha
Vandy was able to get my husband’s neck to relax and it relieved his pain. We were completely relaxed. It was a perfect way to end our vacation.-Connie
While being trained as a dancer at North Carolina School of the Arts I was taught massage techniques for dancers. I was certified in reflexology and taught basic meditation to the mentally challenged. I began a Reiki and Swedish massage apprenticeship in Colorado with a blind teacher who taught me to “see” with my fingers, elbows, forearms, and knees.There I found a heightened approach to body work. Since then, I have traveled the world seeking advanced practices in massage, yoga, meditation, skin care, and holistic healing modalities.
Some of the unique modalities, in addition to Swedish, Deep Tissue, Sports Massage and Lomi-Lomi, that I have trained and practice are: Ashiatsu, Thai Massage, Reiki, Polarity, Shiatsu, Cranio-Sacral and Reflexology
Toshie Was Great!Rick and Brandi
Best massage I have had in a long time, including one recently at a luxury hotel on Maui. She came to our condo, setup quickly and made both my wife and I feel better than we have in quite some time. Definitely will have her back when we are back on the Big Island.-
Being Japanese born and Hawaiian by heart, Mana, the energy of this island, led me to the passion of the healing arts.
Since 2002, I have been practicing and leaning many healing and massage techniques and modalities from around the world.
My massage sessions are a blend of various touch and penetrating energy; Island style.
Each culture has its unique expression of philosophy.
I love the simplicity of Hawaiian Language yet with its very deep meaning.
“Kina’ole” can be described as, “Doing the right thing, in the right way, at the right time, in the right place, to the right person, for the right reason, with the right feeling the first time.
I do believe that everything happens for a reason and, therefore, I treasure each meeting and massage session as an opportunity to strive for excellence with “Omotenashi” (Aloha).
Welcome to Paradise!
