Jean has a history in the beauty industry but found her calling in Reiki and Lomilomi. Clients have remarked on the “Profound relaxation” her lomilomi massages can induce as well as the relief from pain that it can provide.
Hawaiian Lomilomi is the traditional healing modality used for centuries by the Hawaiian people to re-align the body, mind and spirit. Sometimes called the “loving hands” massage, Lomilomi uses gentle, stretching movements to ease the release of tension and stress, leaving the client with a deep sense of peace and well-being. Jean always includes essential oils in her treatments, selected especially for the clients needs.
