Herbal Medicine & Essential Oils for Wellness

Aloha! Have you been keeping yourself well with Herbal Supplements, Essential Oils, Vitamin C, Garlic and High Quality, Easily Absorbable Probiotics? I’m here to tell you that if you create a regular regimen of supplements then you will remain well and not get the Coronavirus. Of course the quarantine’s and social distancing has been necessary during this crisis, but we all know that life has to continue and that means getting things back to normal.

How will you be sure not to get it? Of course wash your hands often. Use 99.9% germ killing hand sanitizer ( even on your car steering wheel) and don’t touch your face. If you hear someone not far from you coughing or sneezing, literally run the other way. Hey we can’t live in paranoia or fear but we can take preventive measures and that also includes supplements and probiotics to make your immune system’s stronger!

We need our immune system’s strong to be able too fight off these new, complex viruses in the World today. Herbs I suggest in supplement form that kill virus are Oregano Leaf, Olive Leaf, Holy Basil. Vitamin C daily in high doses 4,000mgs to 6,000mgs. Elderberry is excellent for killing virus and preventing virus. The best product, with the highest milligrams is called Dr. Dunner’s Elderberry Syrup. You can find it online on Amazon.

The herbs I mentioned above can be found on Swanson’s Supplements online. Swanson’s has high quality supplements for a fraction of the cost and they offer free shipping. Shipping to Hawaii only costs $5. The Probiotics I recommend are called Renew Life on Amazon. These probiotics are easily absorbable and #1 Rated. Keep them in your refrigerator and take them at bedtime. There are 50 Billion live cells & 200 Billion live cells of this product.

I recommend getting both, so after you’ve taken the 50 Billion live cells for awhile then you can dabble with the 200 Billion live cells, but caution when you do don’t take the entire packet, just sprinkle some on your yogurt. The thing to know about probiotics folks is that you always need more of them and many different kinds of strains, so just eating yogurt all by it self isn’t nearly enough strains. Now about Essential Oils. The Best Essential Oils on the market you can get are Young Living Essential Oils. Please see my Essential Oils Page.

I recommend having a straight oil ( no water) diffuser for emergency’s like if you got a virus and it’s attacking your lungs. You can diffuse the oils and breath them into your lungs. That’s how I survived the H1N1. I also eat lavender oil sometimes, but only Young Living Lavender Oil because it’s pure. I hold it in the back of my throat and then gargle it and then swallow it down. Although lot of products say they are 100% pure oil ( one’s you find in health food stores etc.)

They aren’t 100% pure. They can say they are because the FDA doesn’t regulate essential oils and other products enough. Please consult your Medical Doctor and Naturopath Doctor before starting a new regime. Every person has a unique body, and of course some people have compromised immune system’s. Garlic is great for your heart and it kills virus and bacteria.

The only thing about garlic is that is also kills some of your good intestinal flora, so a must to take probiotics if you’re consuming garlic. Questions? Call me anytime. We will be open soon as we are a Mobile Massage Business ( We travel to you). Michelle LMT-Owner 808-276-6329 Blessings!

Olive Leaf & Olive Oil

Aloha! Olive Leaf is a great Antioxidant Supplement! Olive Leaf comes in a capsule and is one of the best supplements for killing free radicals in the body! In fact Olive Leaf and Olive Oil are good for you! Olive trees aren’t sprayed with pesticides because they have their own natural built in pesticide. Cooking with Olive Oil is really great for your Heart and Nervous System! Sometimes it’s a good idea to put a tablespoon of Olive Oil in the back of your throat as a medicinal remedy. Let it stay back there for a few minutes working its magic on germs in the back of your throat! Then swallow it down for the the wellness of the rest of your body. Europeans use a lot of olive oil! They eat it, use it in their hair, and use it for massage oil. Olive Oil is really great for your skin! It’s a thick nourishing oil that feeds and hydrates your skin.

Maui Massage Seashells offers Olive Oil Massage! Let us revitalize you with massage and your skin with Olive Oil!

Probiotics. Why they are so important for your Wellness?

Probiotics are very important for maintaining your health. They provide the good intestinal flora that your gut needs to function properly. This includes the breaking down of your food, the absorption of nutrients from the food you eat, by your intestines and the proper elimination of wastes. Your guts intestinal flora is crucial for all of these and the delicate balance of your immune system. Of course you want your immune system working the best so that you don’t become ill. There are many probiotics on the market. Most of them aren’t great quality and they’re not easily absorbable. The probiotic I recommend is Renew Life Ultimate Flora 50 Billion Live cells. Keep them in your refrigerator. You want to build up on them gradually. Take 1 every few days, then eventually take one every other day. Good Health to You!

Please consult your medical doctor before starting a new health regime.

To complete your wellness experience on Maui, we suggest a Swedish Massage to help your body detox. 

Maui Massage Modalities

Aloha Visitors & Locals! I think it’s important to write you about the different modalities of massage in Maui. You’re here in Maui now and you know you want a massage but you’re not certain what kind of massage will best suit you or suit your body. Don’t worry this is absolutely normal because most people haven’t studied massage, and most people aren’t sure what modalities of massage they’ve received in the past.

Now I’m certain that you’ve had Swedish massage, if you’ve had massage in The United States of America. The reason is because Swedish Massage is the most Universal style of massage in the World and especially in the USA. Swedish Massage is often combined with other modalities because it’s an excellent style of massage to use when the Massage Therapist’s intention is to smooth out and knead out the client’s muscle tissue. Swedish massage is done with a flat hand that glides over the body and also with kneading/grasping (grabbing) movements, like squeezing the muscles. The Effleurage of Swedish Massage is the flat handed strokes, and the Petrissage of Swedish Massage is the kneading/ grasping movements. Again Effleurage is best for smoothing out tissues of the body and Petrissage is best for getting lactic acid out of the tissues of the body by engaging the muscle tissues.

Now let’s talk about Lomi Lomi Hawaiian Massage and how it differs from Swedish Massage. In Swedish Massage the Massage Therapist avoids the bones and articulations. Lomi Lomi Hawaiian Massage goes right over the bones and articulations and the massage therapist uses their forearms, elbows and kneading strokes ( in a downward-toward the table) movement. These two styles of massage are great to mix together. I highly recommend a Swedish Lomi Lomi Massage combination for a relaxing massage experience that also works out your muscle tension.

Sports Massage engages the muscle tissue more than a Swedish Massage or Lomi Lomi Massage. It tends to be a deeper pressure but it can be done in a medium pressure. Sports Massage involves addressing the structural alignment of the body and sometimes also stretching the body, however if you don’t like to be stretched you can ask your Sports Massage Therapist to give you a Sports Massage without the stretching. Athletes tend to prefer Sports Massage because they really need their muscle tissue engaged, since they are so physically active, to help their muscles be in a structural balance. The structural balance of opposing muscle groups that Sports Massage facilitates, helps athletes perform. Sports Massage can be combined with Swedish and Lomi Lomi Massage. Combining these modalities together creates a relaxing massage thats more muscle engaging. NMT Sports Massage ( Neuro-muscular Therapy) is a massage modality that cross fiber frictions areas of the body that has scar-tissue. It is affective for helping soft tissue injury heal. The protocol is cross fiber for a few minutes only, then ice therapy, and then rest the area for a few days and repeat. NMT is the best modality for diminishing scar tissue in the tissues, tendons and ligaments ( as long as the injured area can be palpated).

Deep Tissue Massage is a modality of massage that goes deeper into the muscle tissues and addresses the fascia (Connective Tissue) of the body, which in turn helps the structural alignment of the body. Rolfing is deep tissue that is extra deep and specifically addresses the fascia of the body to improve the body’s structural alignment.

Shiatsu Massage is Japanese Massage. It addresses the meridians of the body and the structural alignment of the body. It’s pressure point massage and is characteristically deeper, yet it also relaxes the body nervous system greatly.

Hot Stone Massage is a modality of massage where heated up rocks are used to implement heat into the body’s tissues/ fascia. The heat of the rocks feels amazing and literally helps the tissue melt into a more pliable state making it easier for the massage therapist to get in to the tissues. Again any and all of the modalities listed above can be mixed together! Yay!

Also it’s very important for you tell your massage therapist what’s going on with you and your body, including medical conditions and injuries and what think you need from your Therapeutic Massage in Maui. Mahalo!

Why is Lomi Lomi Massage so great?

Have you ever had a Lomi Lomi (Hawaiian) style Massage? Lomi Lomi Massage is an excellent massage to receive! Lomi Lomi Massage feels amazing! And Lomi Lomi Hot Stone Massage ( Lomi Pohaku) feels even better! The Hawaiians are of Polynesian decent. They created Lomi Lomi Massage. In traditional Hawaiian families there’s always one person that gives massage to their family members. There is no other massage that is similar to Lomi Lomi Massage. It’s a very specific style (modality) of massage. Lomi Lomi massage goes right over your bones and articulations (joints). The long strokes and downward needing strokes release the muscle tissues around and closest to your bones. Lomi Lomi also relaxes your body’s Nervous System the best! Making it possible for the greatest relaxation you’ll ever feel! Lomi Lomi massage is a must to try when you’re in Hawaii and especially in Maui, Hawaii. People come to Paradise to relax, unwind and relieve their stress. Lomi Lomi Massage will help you do exactly that. It will help you get back to your Best Self!

NMT Massage for your Injuries

Aloha Maui vistors and locals! Neuro-Muscular Therapy Massage (NMT) is the best style of massage to receive to heal your injuries. Injured tissue that can be palpated (touched) can have NMT massage to work out scar tissue left behind from injuries. The smallest amount of scar tissue can yield a lot of pain. It’s best to have it gradually massaged out, otherwise you’re prone to pain and further injury. Scar tissue can’t be just left alone or it becomes worse (bigger tears happen). Maui Massage Seashells-Maui Best Massage provides NMT Massage. If you’re injured it’s best to wait 72 hours (longer depending on the severity of the tissue, tendon, or ligament injury) It’s best to start using Ice on it right away ( to prevent further injury and to start the healing process. It’s also crucial that you do lots of ice application after getting NMT Massage. Please call us if you have any questions. Blessings!

Relaxation Tips

Aloha, Owner Michelle Hebert LMT here…Are you having trouble relaxing? Stressed out? A massage is a good idea! Also you may want to avoid caffeine, switch to herbal, non caffeinated teas. Best to buy organic teas only other wise you’re consuming lots of chemicals. Most people have caffeine sensitivity and aren’t aware of it.

Yoga/Meditation are also good. You might want to buy a book on stretching. You don’t have to join a yoga class to learn how to stretch. I recommend stretching 20 min. in the morning and 20 min. in the evening as a routine.

Tips on stretching: Stretching your hip-flexors, quads, hamstrings is very important for your low back. Combining meditation while you stretch is favorable. Mediation is about quieting the mind. Having no thoughts. Being still ( which you can do between stretches) and breathing. Being aware or your breath
