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.

Hawaiian sitar music hums softly in the background of spacious, private rooms, setting a tranquil mood as licensed massage therapists ease aches with a blend of shiatsu and lomi-lomi techniques. As a heating pad warms muscles and helps release tension, the kahuna (teacher) delivers specialized strokes from other modalities, using various yoga positions and techniques to optimize breathing and flexibility. The relaxation can also be taken outside, as practitioners perform these massages in the salty breeze of the beach. During ocean massages, therapists use the weightless buoyancy of an outdoor salt pool to manipulate bodies into positions that both release tension from muscles and communicate with nearby migrating whales.

Hawaii-native Mimi Mix spent more than two decades as a nurse healing patients at plastic surgery, orthopedic, and gastroenterology offices while also becoming a Certified Hypnotherapist, Certified Laser Technician, Reiki practioner, and personal transformation coach. But her curiosity got the better of her when she enrolled in a laser technology certification program. There, she was introduced to the Italian-made Vaser Shape MC-1 system, which is an FDA-approved device designed to painlessly melt fat and reduce the appearance of cellulite via ultrasound technology. With a leap of faith, Mimi decided to open Spectrum of Beauty, located in the PanAm Building, where she could feature the VaserShape's no-downtime treatments.

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.
