The island of Hawaii is also known as the "Healing Island"—a place where a strong tradition of wellness combines with the aloha spirit to nurture the soul. The island offers a wide spectrum of healing traditions that can reenergize and rejuvenate. Native Hawaiian kupuna (elders) have shared indigenous wisdom through their cultural practices, including lomilomi massage, laau lapaau (using native plants in healing practices) and hooponopono (“to make right” with others through soul-searching, self-awareness and forgiveness). Uniting all of these healing arts is the most important concept of all: aloha.
Experience the spa services of Hawaii Island’s resorts and day-spas where you’ll find rejuvenating treatments found only in the islands. Succumb to the rhythmic strokes of a lomilomi massage. Add heated pohaku (stones) to relive sore muscles. Renew your skin with a coffee exfoliation and facials using local ingredients to stimulate and increase circulation. Pamper yourself with wraps, scrubs and hydrotherapy in an unforgettable tropical setting. With rewards like this, it’s no wonder why the island of Hawaii is such a popular getaway for destination weddings and honeymoons.
Then extend your spa experience with healthy dining, yoga, Pilates, hiking, kayaking, stand up paddle boarding or an excursion in an outrigger canoe. Even a visit to a sacred Hawaiian heiau like Puukohola Heiau National Historical Site or a remote area like Kalae (South Point) can offer you a peaceful setting for reflection. From spa resorts to secluded sacred sites, you can find a variety of ways to relax and take a few steps along your path to self-discovery.
