A series of coincidences helped Stephanie Lay to create the system of symmetric rolling. In 2007, she was using the traditional foam rolling techniques used by sports-medicine practitioners to help to correct her alignment problems and persistent pigeon toe on her left leg. She had taken to stuffing a dense rubber ball inside of a hard cardboard cylinder to activate areas and tissues the softer foam equipment couldn't address. Months later, while helping a friend to work out an aching hamstring on a rubber ball, Lay discovered something odd: When her friend's leg was on the rubber, the leg would shake due to the amount of energy blocked inside, but when her foot touched the hardwood floor, the trembling ceased. By incorporating this observation with her foam rolling exercises, she created her own system that integrated mysofascial release with the energy-stabilizing powers of wood.
Lay used her degree in kinesiology and 10-year career in bodywork to create her practice, and today she helps others to align and balance through symmetric rolling. Clients roll across different-size wooden spheres and dowels that place firm pressure on fascia lines to release adhesions. The client is in control of the entire treatment, with Lay on hand to ensure proper movement and offer encouragement.
Those who wish to continue treatment at home can purchase the rebel rollers and mana balls, which are produced by hand. Lay engraves each ball with a checker logo that represents the balance between light and dark. A fruit-tree seed accompanies every purchase
to replace the tree that made each wooden product and to add authenticity to Johnny Appleseed costumes.
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.
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.

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.
