Relax, Refresh, Revitalize



Meet Charley

Hi! Welcome! I am so happy you are here. I started my journey studying under Angela Leslee at Aloha Massage Academy in 2019. After graduating I continued on to get my Mana Lomi Level 2 Certification with Kumu Maka'ala Yates. Since then, I have completed trainings in Lymphatic Drainage, Graston Technique and Sennin-So Shiatsu.

While in massage school, I started apprenticing under Dr. Chieko Maekawa to learn Seitai Shinpo Japanese Structural Acupuncture. In December 2022 I graduated with my Master in Acupuncture Degree from the Institute of Clinical Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.

My approach to bodywork is holistic and intentional. I believe the true power to heal comes from within. I am only here to help guide the body to this awareness. I address each client’s specific needs by listening to the body and integrating my knowledge of anatomy and physiology.

Using a blend of techniques, I am able to create a unique treatment.

I am deeply compassionate and seek to help my clients find peace and healing within themselves through safe touch and loving awareness.

Seitai Shinpo Japanese Structural Acupuncture

Seitai Shinpo is a system of acupuncture developed by Daiichi Sorimachi in the 1970s. He was the first to discover that internal organ systems could be balanced through alignment of the spine with acupuncture and moxibustion. Seitai Shinpo has been most influenced by the acupuncture-moxibustion style of Sawada Ken and the structural therapy of Sotai Ho as developed by Dr. Keizo Hashimoto. Dr. Chieko Maekawa brought this style to the United States, where it is exclusively taught on Hawaiʻi Island.


Treatments vary between different practitioners, but generally speaking a Seitai Shinpo treatment incorporates a combination of needling the front and the back of the body and the application of moxibustion using a herb called artemesia vulgaris. Diagnosis and treatment is influenced more strongly by the observation of structural distortions of the body than the reading of pulses or tongue as in other styles of acupuncture.
