My Sessions
Let your journey to wellness and self healing begin here. I am a European and Hawaiian trained therapist working on Martha's Vineyard.  My practice is based on the east coast, but my Lomi lineage traces directly back to
Kahu Abraham Kawai'i in Hawaii.

I have trained under Mr. Robert Gantke, one of the pre-eminent practitioners of Kahuna bodywork and Lomi Lomi in the world today.  As well as with IIima Margareta Kappl.  Robert learned Kahuna Bodywork at IIima Margareta Kappl, who learned it directly from Kahu Abraham Kawai'i.

Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • I came to MV this summer to recover from a lumpectomy. I had developed a seroma that required periodic drainage and thought I needed to cancel the trip. My surgeon insisted I go, and told me to find a local doctor if necessary. Unfortunately that wasn't as easy as expected, and after calling around to several doctors and hospitals, I thought I'd have to cut my visit short and fly back home. Somehow, I found Virginia. Her treatments cleared the blockage, relieved the pressure, and kept me out of the hospital. Better yet, she made sure I knew how to do this for myself going forward. Virginia is a true healer and a wonderful person.

    Virginia is gifted. It was truly a spiritual experience.

  • Very comfortable and relaxing

  • It was an incredible experience! I felt immediate release and relief where I needed it most.

Edward is a friendly & caring person, and he seems really in tune with people's therapeutic needs. He has created an environment that is multi-sensory and conducive to receiving the full benefits of a massage. I also felt comfortable letting him know about areas of my body that I was concerned about because of muscle aches & pains or past medical issues.
by Anonymous on Aug 13
Edward was very skillful in his knowledge of massage techniques. It was a fulfilling and satisfying massage. Relieved my stress and anxiety. My first masseur. He was very professional. I will definitely go back.
by Anne on Jul 24
Edward provided good questions to determine what I wanted and felt comfortable with, he listened intently to my responses and performed accordingly. I have had many massages in many places- I would describe his touch as - very loving🙏
by Jessica on Jul 11
It was my first prenatal massage and he took the time to walk me through what to expect. Edward was very kind and professional. Highly recommend

by Eileen on Sep 10
Edward's knowledge, techniques, calming voice and professionalism has made every visit an absolute pleasure. He has improved my well being and given me hope in mending my body, both mentally and physically. He makes you feel incredibly safe and comfortable so you can really benefit from everything he offers in the session.

Virginia is personable, professional, and very approachable. She is meticulous about her workspace as well as her skill/knowledge about the human body. I am a cancer survivor who has been receiving massage for over a decade to minimize long term post-treatment side effects. After my first treatment with Virginia I can without a doubt say it was the best massage/most helpful I have ever received to date. No matter what your reason for seeing Virginia she will not disappointment.

Soothing, helpful, energizing. Lovely experience
