Derek Barel

Passionate about facilitating healing bodywork.

I was trained in Swedish massage in school. Since graduating, I have trained with several different Kumu (teachers) of Hawaiian Lomilomi and Rummi-Rummi from the Maori (native Polynesian people of New Zealand). Every year I attend the Hawaiian Lomi Lomi conference and have been a member of the Hawaiian Lomi Lomi Association (HLA) since 2014. I am also a member of the Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals (ABMP).

Derek is a perfect fit for PalmLeaf! His ability to make you feel relaxed and comfortable, while providing an excellent massage, truly fits the PalmLeaf brand that I've come to expect. You won't be disappointed!

Derek was amazing! He did a wonderful job at explaining what he was going to do, so I was as comfortable as possible. He performed massage techniques I have never experienced before and they blew my mind!! The stretches and the minimal pressure of his massage technique really allowed for me to wind down and relax. Being on his table was heaven!
