Cathilyn Kehulani Ward , LMT, HHP
I believe that the body has the ability and will to heal itself however, on occasion needs guidance. I see myself as a sculptor, with each stroke the intention is to move the muscle and soft tissues in your body back to where they belong, thus returning balance to the body, mind and soul . I have studied and continue to study and practice several healing modalities with a special focus on the Hawaiian healing art form of Lomilomi, other modalities include Cranio Sacral, Deep Tissue, Geriatric massage, Hapai (pregnancy) massage, and infant massage. I am also attuned to Reiki in the 2nd degree. (MAT 15226)

Kyra uses a blend of modalities including; swedish, lomilomi, reiki, deep tissue, aromatherapy, and hot stones. Kyra was led to massage at the young age of 8, as she grew up massage seemed to follow. Intrigued by the admirable and altruistic ways the power of touch connects people with each other and to themselves, guides Kyra to continue the path of massage.
