perfect complement to cardiovascular exercise, sport, rehab
and life. Pilates exercises will leave you looking toned, feeling
revitalized and moving with ease.
This therapeutic energy-based healing modality is designed to
bring relaxation and healing for the body, mind & spirit.
Healing Touch is hands-on therapy that compliments traditional
medical care. Its acceptance by major medical centers clearly
demonstrates its value in the healing process.
Gentle, non-invasive touch is used to influence and support
the human energy system. This process can restore harmony, energy
and balance within the system while supporting the self-healing
process and is comparable to “jump starting” a depleted
battery. When our “batteries” are fully charged,
we heal more easily. The healer acts as the jumper cable, bringing
the body into harmony by balancing energy centers known as chakras.
Healing Touch therapy links the mind, body, emotions and spirit
into the patient’s healing journey, This holistic energy
therapy emphasizes compassionate, heart-centered care in which
the provider and client are equal partners in facilitating healthy
Craniosacral work is a form of bodywork that is performed on
a massage table using very light pressures on selected parts
of the body to affect shifts in the positions of the bones
and tissues and harmonize the subtle pulse or wave of the cerebrospinal
fluid. It incorporates careful listening and sensitive touch
and is deeply relaxing and profoundly healing. Craniosacral work is based on
the principle that all parts of the body/ mind/ spirit are intimately connected.
AquaCranial® applies the philosophy of craniosacral work
to the ocean. The sessions are done in the water. The gentle
waves and the salt water assist in the transformational work
that can occur. To provide warmth, AquaCranial® is usually
performed in a wetsuit.
Kauai has a remarkable selection of professionals to choose from
and the North Shore is no exception.
“Sadly, our fabulous health club facility at the Prince Golf & Country Club has been closed since 2010 and nothing has opened up on the North Shore since. However, most of the classes that were held there have found other venues – many at the Princeville Community Center including yoga & pilates. Aquasize is now being held at the Westin, Aerobics and strength building classes at Hanalei Bay Resort with a variety of teachers offering classes; Taekwondo Doe and ballet continue at other north shore locations. Some of these teachers post notices on our Google Groups, so check it out periodically for news – we are still hopeful that someone will build or open a facility serving the North Shore before too long!
