In ancient Hawaiian culture, places and things took their names not from their function or surroundings, but from dreams and interpretations of that object. Kupuna an kumu Aunty Malia Crave, a respected Hawaiian poet gave Na Ho'ola Spa the name based on this practice, calling the spot "many healers." To bring her vision to pass, the spa gathered up dozens of therapists and aestheticians whose sole goal is to soothe clients in the 10,000-square foot, two-story facility nestled inside the Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort and Spa.
Massage therapists rub tension from muscles, using products derived from Maui-grown plants. Aestheticians promote healthy skin with Carita treatments, and a line of anti-aging skin care products imported from France. While they relax, visitors enjoy stunning views of Waikiki Beach out floor-to-ceiling windows.

As a kid, Kenji Wrathall’s mother taught him about how shoulder massage can make people feel good. Now, for the last 12 years, Kenji has brought relaxation to his clients through the fine art of massage, a career that’s included work at spas, management stints, and training other therapists. He opened Honolulu Massage and Bodyworks in 2012, where he leads a team with more than 50 years of combined experience that provides massages tailored to each individual’s stress levels, the pain they’re dealing with, and the number of backs they have. Honolulu Massage and Bodyworks is located in the Eaton Square shopping plaza.
Lomilomi, which means “massage” in Hawaiian, represents native islanders’ greater tradition of natural body healing. The therapists at Lomi-Foot N Body specialize in lomilomi as well as other forms of Hawaiian massage—including lomi pohaku, which incorporates hot stones; ha’uki lomi for highly active and athletic clients; and lomi noho, or chair massage. They partner their ancient Hawaiian specialty with other regional massage techniques, such as gentle Swedish massage and Japanese shiatsu, which stimulates bodily energy flow so that clients can recharge batteries by putting them in their ears.
Since 1988, the deal-hunters at Dry Clean Super Saver have connected customers with a trustworthy network of dry-cleaning and automotive-repair technicians. Armed with easy-to-use punch cards, clients save huge amounts money on dry cleaning and automotive maintenance, the two costliest household expenses after plumbing repair and poltergeist removal. The association of participating cleaners and garages stretches across the country, ensuring that cardholders can remove stains from a dress shirt or change an oil filter wherever they happen to be.
The Massage Corner strives to foster a holistic sense of balance with services such as reflexology, as well as lomilomi, deep-tissue, shiatsu, hot stone, and aromatherapy massages. The therapists there also employ traditional Hawaiian modalities, which accentuate the bodywork’s therapeutic effects with organic coconut oils or warmed lava stones. These and other treatments can help lull clients into a deep state of relaxation, relieve muscular stress, and increase circulation more effectively than nagging lazy blood cells to work out more.
