Koolau Massage's therapists soothe muscles and alleviate aches with a wide range of massage techniques and scrubs forged from Canadian mineral sea salt. With more than 30 years combined experience, the therapists specialize in multiple modalities, including detoxifying hot-stone massage, trigger-point therapy, thai massage, neuromuscular therapy, and styles designed to rehabilitate injuries. Hot-stone massages ease tension, improve circulation, and banish toxins, aromatherapy soothes breathing tubes, and mineral salt scrubs invigorate backs, feet, and baked potatoes.
When it comes to pain relief, a one-size-fits-all approach is rarely the answer. That’s why Portner Orthopedic Rehabilitation’s team isn’t populated by professionals versed in a single field or specialty. Instead, the roster consists of medical doctors, non-surgical orthopedic doctors, a chiropractor, physical therapists, an acupuncturist, and rehabilitative massage therapists who help treat such conditions as whiplash, carpal-tunnel syndrome, and sports injuries. Their diagnostic services mix old-fashioned physical examinations with electromyography and ultrasound testing. After determining the underlying cause of discomfort, doctors might ease inflammation in the joints, alleviate muscle spasms, and reduce swelling with injection therapy. They also perform chiropractic services that realign the spine to remove discomfort and aid in healing. When conditions call for extra relief, the doctors call in colleagues including physical therapists, licensed massage therapists, and an acupuncturist. They set to work dissipating deep-seated problems with their specialized treatments, whether they’re applying pressure to problem areas and kneading out knotted tissue or unblocking energy pathways and promoting inner healing through the strategic insertion of tiny needles.
Though massage is Arnaud Adam's passion, Midweek.com reports that he's always been fascinated with paddling. So in 2009, when he moved to Hawaii from France, he joined the Kailua Canoe Club and taught himself the sport. Today, Arnaud finds that many of his clients are fellow paddlers, due in part to his title as massage therapist for Keahiakahoe men's crew. But his services aren't strictly for athletes. Nestled within his Hale 'e pa nui Arnaud eases tension in a diversity of clients with his flowing Swedish strokes, lomi lomi techniques, deep-tissue pressure, and cervical spine and cranial work to alleviate headaches, migraines, and TMJ pain.
Following the lead of medical director Choon Kia Yeo, who boasts 30 years of medical experience, the team at Honolulu MedSpa strives to make clients feel happier, healthier, and more youthful without spending too much time or money. They customize treatment programs to meet each individual's needs and budget, and they offer free consultations to any patients who are still trying to determine their beauty paths.
Despite being a board-certified surgeon, Choon Kia Yeo promotes many noninvasive skin therapies at his practice, including virtually painless laser hair removal and skin-rejuvenation facials that employ laser light, oxygen infusions, and chemical peels. To contour bodies, he and his team use a Venus Freeze skin-tightening system that reduces the appearance of cellulite without breaking the skin. The medspa is also the only certified CoolSculpting practice in the state; there, highly trained technicians target especially stubborn bulges from the outside with the help of noninvasive fat-reduction panels. They also administer injections of Botox and Juvéderm, which help to fill in lines and creases on the face.
In order to make beauty maintenance as accessible to all as possible, Honolulu MedSpa offers evening and Saturday appointments, patient rewards, financing options, a military discount, and monthly promotions.
The skillful stylists at Salon R & Spa know how to craft winning looks, including gussying up beauty queens for Miss Teen USA and Miss Hawaii USA pageants. With these glamorous credentials in hand, Salon R's stylists strive to give all of their clients the same star treatment as they care for hair with cuts, smoothing keratin treatments, Japanese perms, and delicate updos. Elsewhere in the salon, qualified aestheticians wax unwanted hair and apply makeup to make peepers pop and mouths drool over themselves, and massage therapists ease tension with deep-tissue techniques.
At Beauty Bar Salon & Skincare, stylists streamline tresses with custom cuts and formaldehyde-free KeraSmooth anti-frizz treatments. A complimentary consultation kicks off haircut sessions, serving as a compass as stylists reunite split ends and boost drooping 'dos. The KeraSmooth treatment, which runs between 60 and 90 minutes, transforms unruly locks into manageable manes for up to 12 weeks. The hydrating formula helps to strengthen hair, improve elasticity, and make strands sleeker than a show horse after a constitutional swim in a river of olive oil.
