Pain Relief, Injuries, Stress Reduction, Migraines,

Born and raised in Hilo, Hawaii. In 1973 I met and studied under Koichi Tohei Sensei. This began my interest in bodywork. Tohei Sensei taught me the art of Kiatsu i.e. Aikidos' version of Shiatsu. I enjoyed the work and at that time I never thought of doing it professionally. Life went on, I became a DJ and worked in Hilo on KBIG & KWXX radio.

Born and raised in Hilo, Hawaii. In 1973 I met and studied under Koichi Tohei Sensei. This began my interest in bodywork. Tohei Sensei taught me the art of Kiatsu i.e. Aikidos' version of Shiatsu. I enjoyed the work and at that time I never thought of doing it professionally. Life went on, I became a DJ and worked in Hilo on KBIG & KWXX radio. Moved to Honolulu in the late 80's and had the opportunity to work as Jon Kealoha at KQMQ and in the 90's at KSSK. It was great working on the top stations in Honolulu. At KSSK I hosted a show called "Night Magick". It was a show about the unknown, local ghost stories and psychic readings. It was through my guests on the show that sparked my interest again in doing healing work with shiatsu. By chance I met Mark Kauwe "Shiatsu by Mark" and through his guidance I earned my massage license, learning his style of shiatsu. Shiatsu has always been my love. I’ll continue to study, striving to master my practice. I've studied and trained under : ?Sensei ‘‘Indei’’ (Aisen Shiatsu School) Honolulu, Hawaii ?Sensei ‘‘Murakami’’ (Acupuncturist & Koho Shiatsu) North Shore, Hawaii ?’’Paul Pitchford’’ (Heartwood Institute Zen Shiatsu) Northern California ?’’Dan Lobash’’ (Korean Hand Therapy) Santa Barbara, California ?’‘Scott Lozanoff, Ph.D.’’ (John A. Burns-School of Medicine) U.H. Manoa

Jon is a person that has a true gift with what he does. I don't just leave feeling good, I feel like I'm being fixed and healed.

I love the whole shiatsu experience. Healing to my body, mind and soul.

Jonathan has done a great job eliminating fatigue and stimulating my lower back, hips and foot. I feel he corrected irregularities of my back and foot by applying deep pressure to specific areas of my back and foot. Interesting how he uses a pen-like tool to pressure points in my fingers and get the blood flowing to parts of my affected body. Can't wait for my next appointment, which is Friday the 25th. Mahalo

progress made in stopping sciatic pain
by Richard on Oct 17
Jon is familiar with my chronic aches and pains which his treatments help me to manage in spite of my over exerting myself in physically demanding construction work and surfing. Being 65 years of age I occasionally have acute bouts of sharp low back pain that require prescription strength anti-inflammatory and muscle relaxant meds and shiatsu to remedy. I'm grateful for Jon's care.
