I believe that the art of massage is a “gift”. Anyone can go to massage school but certain people have that “special touch”. Ever since I was a small keiki I’ve been drawn to human touch. Whether it was snuggling with mom and rubbing her feet, or giving dad a back rub after a long day of yard work, it has always felt natural to me. I entered massage training right out of high school and became licensed in 1998. I began my career at a Chiropractic clinic and thoroughly enjoyed helping patients recover, as well as furthering my knowledge of healing modalities. From there I was employed at numerous “high end” Resort Spa’s including the Four Seasons Hualalai Sports Club and Spa. Working as an L.M.T. at Hualalai for 8 years I received professional “5 star” training, as well as the opportunity to work with numerous famous athletes and celebrities. Having my own space to design and do body work out of has always been my dream. Having the opportunity to do it with the person I love makes it that much better! Over the years our business has shifted from having our own studio to now offering Out Call appointments or in a rented space based on availability. Pua and I share the same passion for helping people feel better as well as providing the highest quality of service possible! PAU HANA MASSAGE is our dream and we would love for you to come and experience it with us!!!

Phil's appreciation for massage began at a really young age. He was blessed with a mother who
regularly massaged him and his siblings. It came very natural for Phil to return the favor and
he was always the first child to volunteer to rub mom's feet or walk on dad's back.
A lifelong Kona resident, Phil graduated from Konawaena High School in 1995 and began working in local restaurants to pay his way through massage school. He attained his Hawaii State Massage Therapy
License in 1998 (MAT# 4994) and began his career working as a Chiropractor's assistance. Working as a Chiropractor's assistant furthered his knowledge in anatomy, physiology, kinesiology and medical massage.
From there he moved on to work at the spa at the Four Season's Hualalai Resort. While working there
he received impeccable training in customer service as well as the opportunity to work
with many celebrities and famous athletes.
Phil has been trained in Medical Massage, Swedish, Lomi Lomi, Sports, Trigger Point Therapy, Shiatsu, Prenatal and he specializes in Deep Tissue Massage. Phil has a calm confidant energy about him
and a natural embodiment of the Aloha Spirit. His massages are therapeutically integrative and
result in an amazing experience of deep healing mixed with soothing relaxation.
