"Kealoha's hands are intuitive and healing, seeking out those muscles that most need help; she gives the best massages! I wish she'd stayed in California!" --Jessica Powers

Many conventional methods of pain management are far from healing. With medication, constant pain, doctors and specialists, years of pain and disappointment, and eventually surgery. I offer a 'stone age' approach to healing and pain managing. Our bodies can achieve homeostasis if we just allow it. With healing hands, and intuitive work. I can help many common issue that dont require medication. A simple touch and change of daily activity can go a long way. The difference is 

Tingling Arms and Carpel Tunnel

  • We live in a society of computers and cellphones. Our bodies were never meant to constantly be sitting and typing. Repetitive motion creates constant wear and tear on the muscle, and in response it tightens up, and can pinch a nerve. That nerve that supplies the arm is the 'Brachial Plexus'. If any of the muscle surrounding that nerve is tight, it will pinch the nerve and create tingling arms, numbness, and constant irritation. You dont have to go to the doctors and get put on medication for 2 years to end up having surgery. All you need is the healing hands to release and allow blood flow back to the area.

Headaches and Migraines

  • Many people suffer from headaches and migraines, it could be a combination of nerve damage, muscle tension, mis-alignment, ect.. The most important thing is to drink water, constant hydration can help with headaches. Along with Massage and proper diet. 
  • Coffee and caffeine is a major cause of headaches, the pharmacological effects of caffeine is a constriction of blood vessels in the brain. Therefore slowly reducing and inevitably cutting out coffee altogether can lead to a happier you. Start with 15% decaf coffee, 75% regular coffee, grind and mix them together, for the next week try 40/60 coffee mixture, third week 50/50% ect.. And eventually switch to decaf all together. Make sure to get Swiss water decaf process and organic if can. Most commercial coffee has addicting additives that damage the body and get you hooked on it. Hence 'Starbucks coffee' is a multi billion dollar industry. 


Back Pain

  • The infamous back pain. In fact, 70 to 85 percent of all people have back pain at some time in their life. That is alot of people in alot of pain. A simple solution is the ground. Think about it, humans have lived and slept on the ground for millions of years, before foam, spring, and air matresses with no back pain. With spring and foam, it creates uneven pressure points, and swaying of the lowerback. 
  • Stretching can make a huge difference in pain management. Stretch the hamstrings, stretch the back 10 min after wake, and 10 min before sleep. 
  • Massage will help to alieviate and break up the tissue to revert back to its natural state. 
  • Yoga is an excellent way to relieve back pain. Not only does it stretch the muscles open, It also strengthens the weak muscles to support the back.

I was getting massages off and on for several years on the mainland and knew it was a good mode of healing for me.  But when I moved to Hawai'i and finally hooked up with Kealoha, she took my experience of massage to a whole new level. 

Kealoha has opened up a new world of possibilities for me to heal and grow in every aspect of my being.  Each visit has awakened healing and growth for me, not just physically but emotionally and spiritually as well.  

My life has changed for the better in every way since I started working with Kealoha six months ago.  I can't totally explain it but it is a fact.  I know her ability to sense and move the blocks in my body both physically and energetically has contributed greatly to these positive changes.  

Kealoha is a skilled and gifted facilitator for healing and growth and I feel very blessed to have found her.
