FRANCESCA CAIRES, LMT
I am a licensed Massage Therapist, Yoga and Dance Teacher who enjoys combining several modalities in my work. My combined professional training spans over more than 20 years. I’ve studied and taught Dance and Yoga for most of my life and have a passion for working with the human body through the healing arts. I began studying Thai Massage with David Roma in 2017 and began studying Swedish Massage in 2019 at the Hawaii Massage Academy (HIMAC). I am certified in Thai Massage, Swedish Massage and Lomi Lomi. I have also developed my own therapeutic techniques with my integrated knowledge of the body, how it moves, and how it heals. In my practice, I like to address the whole body, including the energy field, to encourage optimal health and natural healing. I offer various massage options as well as Private Yoga lessons and I find my clients benefit greatly from sessions which combine the two. In addition to single sessions, I specialize in Private Yoga and Thai Massage Combo sessions which inlcude a hands on Private Yoga lesson, along with meditation, followed by a healing Thai Massage. This is deeply informative and beneficial because my clients learn how to actively align their own body to prevent injury, improve mobility, circulation, digestion, etc. and then we solidify those teachings while my client passively receives my care during Thai Massage, often enjoying a deep release and sweet return to optimal health and bliss, which is our natural state.
I am feeling truly grateful to be practicing out of The Healing Source in Kailua and I look forward to connecting with you.
