Oahu Offers the Spectrum of Spa Experience
Information about day spas and destination spas on the
island of Oahu in Hawaii.
On the island of Oahu, health and wellness awareness has increased over recent years,
and with that, the number of spas has increased. With a dozen spas to choose from,
Oahu offers a spectrum of treatments and experiences to satisfy anybody’s needs.
Oahu’s spas allow visitors to experience the ancient techniques of Hawaiian healing.
The traditional healing philosophies and practices of the Hawaiians, from herbal
healing to massage, complement Western science and can accelerate wellness.
Traditional healers say successful treatment stems in large part from a patient’s
spirituality and use of a number of techniques including lomi lomi massage, which
stimulates the circulatory, muscular and nervous systems.
Hawaiian spa treatments offered by many of Oahu’s spas use Hawaiian plants such
as kalo, awa, noni and kukui, as well as Hawaiian sea salt, kukui nut oil and
tropical fruits to relax and unwind. Visitors can relax with a soothing hot lava
rock massage, lomi lomi massage and other unique treatments created to rejuvenate
the body and spirit.
