About Us

Welcome to Aina Kai Massage! Aina Kai has its beginnings on the east side of the Big Island of Hawai‘i. It was here that we discovered our reverence for massage therapy as a way to help people. We specialize in Swedish Massage, Sport Massage, Deep Tissue, and Trigger Point Therapy.

What heals you? Our name comes from the Hawaiian words Aina and Kai. Aina means “Land” and Kai means “Sea”. Just as a delicate balance exists between the Land and the Sea, there is a delicate balance between mind and body. At Aina Kai, we believe that massage is one of the best ways to explore and integrate the two.

Locations: We offer services in Hilo. My studio is in downtown Hilo. It is conveniently located and close to parking. The room is clean, bright, and welcoming.

Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Always an awesome massage from Jesse! Skill and detailed massage is one that I look forward to every time I am in town!!

    Jesse is the best! He is very skilled at what he does - I wouldn't go to anyone else!

  • Very comforting! Focused on the spots that was explained. Great massage! Highly recommend

    I do a combination of a lot of desk sitting during the week and physical labor on the weekends so I’m always sore from something. It’s hard to find somebody that can maintain deep pressure throughout an entire massage, but even during his last appointment of the day Jesse is able to deliver! He is always friendly and happy to see you, but is very attuned you whether or not you are in the mood to talk or not and he engages appropriately. Ive never felt uncomfortable working with Jesse and I’ve always left feeling better and more relaxed than when I’ve arrived. Over the years I’ve probably been to 75 different massage therapists and Jesse is right up there in the Top 2. Do yourself a favor and book an appointment with him.

  • A great massage therapist listens and tailors the massage to the needs of the patient and Jesse does that every time. He can get deep into the muscle tissue or gently relax the fascia. Best massage therapist in Hilo.

    I like feel well taken care of with a good set of intention. Big Mahalo's.

  • Don’t change a thing!

    Jesse has an amazing spirit and vibe that calms the mind and nerves. He is patient and genuine to the core. Vicky Silva

  • A cup of water after would be good.

    I really appreciate that Jesse listens and changes his technique to provide what I'm needing in the moment. I trust that he can listen to what I want as well as listen to what the muscle tissue is telling him it needs. Very professional, flexible, warm and caring.

The ambiance was calm and peaceful and very neat. The massage helped with the achy muscles. I felt good the rest of the day, evening and next day. So I went back to the garden work for another five hours on Saturday though I did treat myself to Pilates before and after the yard work. Mahalo.

Your willingness to accept and protect my body intuitively. I found your coupon after I got home so thanks for honoring it anyway. As I write this, I got a glimpse of a memory of my being so comfortable and relaxed after the treatment that I think I unintentionally flashed you while you were pouring my water.lol I’d apologize except I really just want to thank you for the laughter factor add-on that prepared me for the best ever acupuncture session! That’s a dynamic duo when they’re back to back!! Mahalo nui loa

Jesse was friendly, skilled, and a good conversationalist. He focused on the problem areas I had pointed out in my intake form. His office is modest but cozy, clean, and it has a window facing the ocean.

Jesse was kind, gentle and interseting! He was fun to talk with and at the same time allowed you to just relax and bask in the ambiance! He did a wonderful job! It was relaxing and helped an injury I have in my shoulder.

I really liked the accue-pressure (pushing and kneeding), really liked the quiet meditative space-it produced a feeling of well being. Maybe cut down the guided meditation to about 2 min (i liked getting centered in the room with present noises and smells) i felt cared for and loved...thank you

Jesse was professional and very skilled in massage. I have received massages for years from many people...Jesse was up there with the best! He took time to identify my needs, professionally followed through and was extremely skilled with excellent deep pressure. I would highly recommend.

I feel that you care about me & want to help me move through my pain issues.This link establishes trust. The big plus is that I know you are a good person. My biggest fear is that as you progress in your skills and techniques I may not be able to keep up with the financial commitment. I am happy with what I get to walk away with.

Jesse is so awesome! I especially love his constant outpouring of gratitude throughout my experience with him, always thanking me for every piece of feedback. I also appreciate his humility, openness, and authenticity. He is so very accommodating with every request or suggestion, even making the room as warm as I needed it which must have been a little uncomfortable for him. He went overtime too without even mentioning it.

This is a very responsible & professional follow up. Thank you for a good massage. From the first massage to my third a great improvement with technique and most precious of all your willingness to make sure you are asking what your clients needs are. I've been receiving massage for about 35 years. Practice and your desire to learn will make you the best practitioner that you want to be. You are on your way.
