When Andrea Kane first opened her massage practice she was doling out deep-tissue massages to athletes and chronic-pain sufferers from inside her own home. Today, her business has grown, expanding to a service menu that now includes Andrea's other specialties including chemical peels, waxing, and sugaring treatments. A natural alternative to waxing, sugaring is gentle enough for all skin types, and, unlike some salons that reserve the service only for women, Andrea will gladly book hair-removal treatments for men or lifelike mannequins.
Malahini Day Spa uses everything from aromatherapy to papaya to ensure each customer looks like they’re time traveling during signature facials.

Along with facials and microdermabrasion treatments, the spa's skilled staff also performs soothing massages, body wraps, and waxing services.

The team rejuvenates all skin types with facials, peels, reflexology, and acupressure services, and even hosts a collection of private-label skincare products and exclusive custom-blend makeup formulas that are so powerful they could make a grown man look like a younger grown man.
Ginger Drobrack maximizes “me” time with dual licenses in aesthetics and massage therapy.
