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

Korean Hand Therapy

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.

Ear Seeds

Ariculo Therapy is just another way to help you with your pain and stress. Why do 20 year old injuries of shoulder pain, or years of sciatica, disappear quickly by only applying a few ear seeds on the surface of the ear. And sometimes within minutes! The reason ear seeds work so well is because the ear has a direct connection to your brain and nervous system. Your brain is the control center of your entire body, and your ear is like a keyboard to your brain. When nerve branches on the ear are stimulated with pressure from ear seeds, they send signals to your brain and nervous system and promote a therapeutic effect, or a homeostatic effect to that corresponding body part.

Scheduled an appt for my husband, who works construction as a tile helper. He’s been complaining about lower back pain and other areas. After his appt feb 13, he felt so relaxed with no pain. Today is feb 23rd and he still feels pretty good. Will be scheduling a session once a month!
