The aestheticians at Lotus Skin Studio focus on the face, performing a quintet of services that makes complexions healthier and brighter. Facials involve seven steps, each one infused with potent, nutrient-rich Dermalogica products. Peels and microdermabrasion rejuvenate complexions by eliminating topmost skin layers and causing underlying proteins to multiply. Waxes for both the face and body yield smooth, hairless surfaces that soak up less dew when you logroll down a hill. Makeup applications, designed for everyday life or special galas, include lessons on how to tend lashes.
JoDana Newman was working as a compounding and nuclear pharmacy technician on the East Coast when she was first introduced to colon hydrotherapy. At the time, she was suffering from an autoimmune skin condition and couldn't find relief anywhere. But after six months of colonics, her skin condition disappeared and her energy levels increased. JoDana became such a big believer in colonics' healing properties that she signed up for an intensive colon-hydrotherapy certification course so that she could begin helping others fight their health woes. That eventually led JoDana to Hawaii, where she opened her own colon-hydrotherapy and detoxification center, M.O. Wellness Center, in January 2011. There, she flushes built-up toxins from colons, cleanses gallbladders and livers, and coaches clients through 10-week weight-loss programs that involve colon hydrotherapy, supplements, and at least 147 words of encouragement.
For licensed massage therapist Michele Czara, holistic wellness is a family business. Her father was a chiropractor, and her daughter has followed in her footsteps with a career in massage. For more than two decades, Michele has operated out of North Shore Sports Therapy— where she slackens the shoulders of national and international sports teams, NFL Pro Bowl athletes, and world surfing champions. Now, guests and island mainstays can call on Michele for a therapeutic session with flowing deep-tissue bodywork or the firm acupressure of lomilomi techniques.
Despite their workplace's name, the staff at Freedom Laser Hair Removal have more than one beauty trick up their sleeves. Of course, they use laser light to damage hair follicles so that legs, arms, upper lips, and backs stay smoother than a newborn bowling ball. But they also use lasers to tighten facial skin, diminish the size of pores, and reduce the appearance of spider veins.
The therapists at Healing Elements Haleiwa ease achy musculature with the ancient Five Element approach, an East Asian philosophy that incorporates the innate properties and movements of water, wood, fire, earth, and metal into therapeutic strokes. Massage sessions thwart a variety of twinges by intertwining modalities ranging from Swedish to deep-tissue techniques. Clients burrow into soft Comphy Company microfiber linens as nimble hands mirror the ebb and flow of ocean tides. Select services cultivate additional indulgence with extras including aromatherapy, acupressure herbal foot soaks, and hot, soothing pours of freshly brewed herbal tea.
