studied at the Aloha Kauai Massage Workshop and trained under Devaki
and Kevin Holman. I learned many modalaties including Swedish Esalen,
Sports massage, Shiatsu, Russian, and a little bit of this and a little
bit of that.
I'm also certified in Shiatsu by Sensei Virginia Dunas of The Kauai
Academy of the Healing Arts
everyone says that I'm one of the best. Maybe I've got some magic
touch, maybe I don't. I don't do "energy" work. I do real physical
massage for real physical results. I've studied anatomy and kinesiology
and have pretty good understanding of the muscular-skeletal system.
Maybe I've got some kind of "gift" but I like to think more that I've
got knowledge and technique. I wont stand over you waving my arms
fluffing your aura or calling upon the spirits to guide me. If thats
what your looking for there are plenty of others on Kauai that claim to
do "energy" work. If you are looking for a real massage where you know
you are being massaged then I'm the guy.
there are several people in your party, I've got stamina and can work
for hours, but if there is a time restraint and you want me to bring one
or more therapists, I know many other good therapists. Give me a little
advance notice and I can line them up.
worked for a couple of years at the Kauai Marriott. It was a great
learning experience. I probably worked on close to a thousand different
bodies a year. All different body types from professional athletes with
near perfect bodies to unfortunates with broken backs, broken necks and
terminal cancer patients. Each body requiring a different massage. One
thing I was told over and over by the other therapists I worked with was
that I was working too hard. People don't really expect a great
massage. They're happy with a mediocre massage. And whatever you do,
don't work up a sweat.
I'm sorry but I just couldn't do it. As long
as I'm there massaging someone, I'm going to give them the best massage
that I can. And I'm sorry if my shirt gets a little wet from sweat, but
massaging is hard work.
Many people want to know what famous people
have I worked on. Not that it really makes a difference. But the only
famous people I'm aware of working on are Mike Singeltary, the great NFL
linebacker from the Superbowl winning Chicago Bears, and Brook Burns
star of Baywatch Hawaii and Dog eat Dog.
