Sure, massage is regularly used to help relax the body and mind. But for Denise Acain, the treatment is much more therapeutic than that. 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.

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.
