In her more than a dozen years of professional experience, she has worked in doctor's offices, chiropractic clinics, and rehabilitation facilities where she used massage to help people find relief from chronic pain and injury. As such, her specialties include deep-tissue massage and myofascial release, and often works to treat conditions ranging fro migraines to frozen shoulders.
In addition to making bodies feel better, Denise can also make them look better—a selection of body-sculpting services is available for those looking to reduce cellulite or tighten skin.

At The Modern Honolulu hotel, where accents such as a Herbie Fletcher surfboard installation join ocean-view pools, soothing scents waft in the air. They’re not from the flowers in the surrounding gardens or the waffles being seared by an iron in one of the guest rooms; rather, the scents are a result of the aromatherapy oils used in the hotel spa. Therapeutic-grade Australian eucalyptus and South African lime oils enhance everything from deep-tissue and hot-stone massages to the flowing strokes of Hawaiian lomi lomi massage.
The spa’s nail technicians rub scented scrubs and a signature blend of oils over feet and hands during luxury pedicures that may include Swarovski crystals to add a little sparkle or entrance any nearby gold diggers. Aestheticians nourish faces with Éminence Organic Skin Care products made from all-natural ingredients full of antioxidants. Luxurious add-ons, such as foot reflexology treatments and Intraceuticals Infusion oxygen facials, help round out the spa's services.
Amar Massage Spa values the connection between inner well-being and outer radiance. Massage therapists revitalize clients physically and mentally by soothing pent-up tension with traditional Swedish and deep-tissue techniques. Alternatively, they can employ specialized modalities such as rolling warm bamboo across aching muscles or applying aromatic Thai herb poultices to key pressure points. Even the clinical-strength skincare treatments double as indulgent escapes from everyday stress. Microdermabrasion treatments, facials, and cellulite-fading treatments target signs of aging while leaving clients as relaxed as a slinky in zero gravity.
Ivana Cablova and her staff are committed to helping clients live their healthiest lifestyle, whether that's through body-balancing acupressure treatments or rehabilitative medical massages for athletes recovering from injuries. Ivana and co. are very invested in the use of essential oils, which are presumably more effective than nonessential oils, incorporating the plant-infused formulas into every treatment and stocking a wide selection in their onsite and online shops. Their massage treatments especially benefit from the essential oils, with modalities ranging from lomi lomi and shiatsu massage to Swedish and prenatal treatments.
