Free Massage For First Responders
To everyone in our community that has been affected by this horrific disaster, we are sending all of our love and support while you heal and Maui comes together to help you during this terrible time. We are all in shock over what has happened on our beautiful island and we are grieving with you.
To the first responders that are on the front lines during this truly devastating time on Maui, we want to show you our support by giving you a break and some malama in a peaceful and caring space Upcountry. We deeply appreciate your efforts to protect us all and will be offering free 50 minute massage sessions to those that are working so hard to keep us safe.
If we get an overwhelming response from Upcountry massage therapists and the office is full, we will look into finding more space to accommodate everyone or help to organize massage therapists to come directly to your homes.
Please contact us if you are interested in receiving a massage so we can get it to you as quickly as possible.
Make sure to inform us that you are a First Responder to ensure you are booked correctly.
Mahalo for all that you do!
For those that are looking for ways to support our first responders directly by giving them some much needed care, we are accepting massage donations of any amount to go towards a discounted rate at $50 for a 50 minute massage for our hard working Maui first responders so we can continue to care for them. To ensure that we can work with as many people in need as possible, every $50 will go to willing massage therapists that have already donated their time and office expenses. If you want your donation to go to a specific First Responder, please leave their name and contact number in the comments section and let us know if you would like it to anonymous.
Any extra or unused proceeds will be donated directly to our Maui Firefighters. If you would like to donate, there is a donation form below and feel free to call or text us at (808)707-7734 if you have any questions.
We will continue accepting new and regular clients because we understand that we all are suffering on Maui right now and everyone needs self care.
