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. 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 t... more

Studied and still studying under Dr.Dan Lobash and Dr. Majid Joneidi. Through them I uses pellets on the hand and no needles. The effects of this therapy is almost instant! Its unbelievable. In most cases it's magic.

I've had a chronic back problem for sometime I've been to Jonathatwice now and I'm already seeing a lot of improvement. I have never tried shiatsu before but I'm really surprised at how my body is reacting to it. Jonathan has really taken the time to work with me thus far and is really pushing me so I get better. I'm looking forward to several more sessions with him and great improvement

Sensei asks questions and then listens, watches my pelvis, knees, for symmetry as I walk. Then he proceeds to massage, address areas of pain/discomfort as his fingers "find" the knots. My recovery from knee and back surgery has been enhanced from his touch.

I was not expecting a miracle cure for my back pain, but John gave my problem his close attention and I felt very comfortable through the whole process. My back does feel better, but I need to give it more time. It's only been two days since I had the massage.

I always wait until I'm in pain before I go to see Mr. Jon, but I love the fact that when I leave I feel 100% better. The movement in my back feels so much better. My sciatica is under control, and my migraines diminish. I really should start booking appointments for maintenance too.

I’ve seen Jonathan twenty times over a 9 month period & typically schedule a next day appointment when I’m hurting beyond what over the counter & prescription drugs can manage. I normally have immediate relief that helps me to walk straighter & taller with a spring in my step that enables me to have a good night sleep and to return to work doing construction that require flexibility, strength & coordination. At least until I re-injury myself with long & strenuous periods of work without rest. I was referred to Jonathan by my primary care physician. I have carpal tunnel syndrome & degenerative neck disease. Due to sprains, dislocations, concussions, etc from sport injuries, one auto accident & 20 yrs on a computer. I’ve been retired 20 months and am busy doing home repair, construction and remodeling on a full time basis that severely taxes my aging body. I’ve tried traditional and non traditional medicines and am happy to have found Jonathan. I appreciate his senior rate since my insurance doesn’t cover this. His office has a modest but nice Japanese/Chinese traditional healing arts atmosphere with jazz music in the bkgd & I always able to find parking.

Jonathan uses various skills he learned to address my neck, shoulder and arm pain. Amazing how pressure points on the fingers have an immediate relief of pain. I went yesterday and this morning I am still pain free!
