Therapeutic Bodywork

Acupressure
Acupressure involves the application of gentle to firm finger pressure to specific points on the body. Acupressure releases tension and pain, increases circulation and flexibility, and supports vibrant health.
Cranial-Sacral Therapy
Deeply relaxing and therapeutic. Extremely light holds restore the subtle rhythms of your central nervous system and the pulse of your spinal fluid.
Deep Tissue Massage
Similar in technique to Swedish massage but with slower movements and more focused pressure. Deep Tissue Massage is designed to relieve severe tension and realign deep layers of muscle and connective tissue.
The Feldenkrais Method
The Feldenkrais Method is a form of somatic education that aims to reduce pain or limitations in movement, to improve physical function, and to promote general wellbeing by increasing your self-awareness and by expanding your repertoire of movement.
Foot Reflexology
By stimulating specific neurological reflex points on your feet, your organs and body receive a thorough tonification, leaving you and your feet feeling very rejuvenated.
Hawaiian Lomilomi
Lomilomi aligns your body, mind and spirit. According to ancient Hawaiian healing traditions, pule (prayer) and ho'oponopono (forgiveness) accompany the bodywork for a truly holistic treatment. Lomilomi's long, rhythmic, integrating strokes soothe your muscles, tendons and soft tissue to increase circulation and nurture your energy.
Hot Stone Therapy
Throughout your lomilomi session enjoy the soothing warmth and mana (power) radiating from carefully selected hot stones. 1.5 hr. Minimum treatment time. $15 additional special service fee.
Lymphatic Drainage
Uses light flowing movements toward lymphatic nodes, with grapefruit essential oil, to assist gently in cleansing extracellular fluid, a cell's home environment. This modality helps to improve circulation of oxygen and nutrients to cells and removes waste from the body.
Medical Massage
Strategically targets issues in the muscles, ligaments and fascia that cause debilitating medical conditions, such as sciatica, low back pain, headaches, knee pain, frozen shoulder, carpal tunnel syndrome, etc. It is great for relieving chronic and acute pain from misuse, overuse and injury.
Meridian Massage
Meridian Massage is an integrated treatment, which encourages a person's Qi to flow through the meridians of the body, and bring them back into balance.
Prenatal Massage
Prenatal massage shares many of the goals of swedish massage, but is tailored specifically to the needs of pregnant women and their changing bodies.
Reiki
Through laying-on of hands, receive the calming and pain relieving effect of this powerful flow of energy, great for integration, relaxation, and clarity.
Shiatsu/Acupressure
Deep and enjoyable, Japanese "finger pressure" focuses on the body's energy channels and key pressure points to balance organs and restore energetic flow.
Sports Massage
This variation of Swedish massage is helpful for people with injuries, chronic pain, and restricted motion. The massage can be helpful in both preventing and recovering from strain on the body.
Swedish
Extremely relaxing, utilitizes kneading and gliding strokes to improve circulation, soothe nerves, and relieve muscle tension. A great way to improve circulation and achieve an overall sense of well-being.
Tandem Bodywork
The four-hands massage is a powerful integrated physical therapy, which allows the recipient to relax into a deep state of full-body healing. Practitioners work in tandem on one body with long flowing strokes, drawing from the wisdom of Lomi Lomi, Russian and Swedish modalities. Special prices apply: One hour: $175
TARA Approach
Resolve limiting and debilitating physical, emotional and mental patterns through this energy medicine healing system. TARA Approach sessions include gentle acupressure, cranial sacral unwinding, and a dialogue process to support awareness and nervous system re-patterning.
Trigger Point Therapy
Finds and dissipates ‘hot spots' in muscles, ligaments and fascia to decrease pain, increase range of motion and restore correct muscle length, position and function. Trigger points act as protective gatekeepers when muscles get used too much or in the wrong way.
Traditional Thai Massage
Done on a mat on the floor, this bodywork is often compared to passive yoga because of the many stretches and positions used with the pressure points throughout the session. Wear loose comfortable clothing.
Traditional Oriental Medicine (Acupuncture)
Utilizing traditional diagnosis through the tongue, pulse, and abdomen as well as through asking questions, this modality can help discover where energy is lacking or blocked. With this information, a treatment is prescribed that most holistically and effectively treats concerns while improving overall health and wellbeing

Aquatic Bodywork

Aqua Mouvance
This water-movement exercise focuses on a person's awareness and the body's natural dance. The movement of water is used to create undulation in the body, increasing its flexibility and mobility.
Aqua Veechi
Totally supported by soft inflated cushions, receive a nurturing full body massage based on the undulation of a wave movement.
Healing Dance
Healing Dance takes advantage of the full, three-dimensionality of the water with broad dynamic movements. The guiding philosophy is that movement is the "medicine" and in the experience of "received dance," the healing process in the body is activated.
Intuitive Bodywork
Intuitive Aquatic Bodywork is an invitation to slow down and unwind your body and mind in the warm embrace of the body-temperature pool. You will be supported and moved gently by the therapist who will tune in to the client’s breathing rhythm and intuitively incorporate rich dynamic movements and quiet moments of blissful stillness. Each session usually consists of gentle stretches, joint manipulation, acupressure point release, and hands on healing to produce deep relaxation and revitalization.
Waterlomi
Waterlomi is a gentle full-body massage which focuses on undulation of the spine and stretching of the limbs. Flotation cushions are used to support the client’s head and legs which allows the practitioner’s arms and hands to be free to perform a wide spectrum of massage techniques while undulating the client’s body in the water. The fluid experience of Waterlomi is a combination of water-based massage modalities Aqua-Veechi, Aqua-Mouvance, and Watsu with the ancient Hawaiian healing art of Lomilomi. These techniques combine with the full body support of the warm salt water to deliver a deeply nurturing experience which often invokes a deep sense of belonging and transformation.
Watsu (Water Shiatsu)
Float in a comfortable state of deep relaxation as you are massaged, stretched, nurtured, and cradled while being supported at the surface of body-temperature water.

Maya Spiritual Bath
Spiritual Bathing is a ritual for ridding the body of a spiritual disease by unblocking stagnant energy, increasing awareness and clarity and removing obstacles that block the paths in one's life. Calling on the reunion between the elements in our body and the elements in nature, the wisdom of the medicinal plants and flowers from the land, the Maya healer picks plants specifically for the individual treatment.
OSHO Meditation

You will receive some of the broadest spectrum of massage at Kalani for working on the massage table, mat and in the water. It's an amazing program.

testimonial-image

I couldn't imagine a better apprenticeship program. Michael was my advisor 5 years ago. I've been working as a massage therapist ever since.

testimonial-image

The experience you get at a setting like Kalani is quite special. I certainly don't know of any program where you can sneak in a swim in the ocean or the pool during lunch breaks or have quality food available on-site.

testimonial-image

Kalani's a great place to study and learn massage. Great environment and very supportive.
