Spas and massage parlors are pretty common around Hawaii. Just about every decent-sized resort and hotel has its own on-site faculty of this kind. Although, just because you can conveniently go and enjoy a massage just about anywhere doesn’t mean you should. If you’re going to Hawaii to treat yourself, then why not treat yourself to an exceptional massage? That’s what Aloha Moon Massage is good at, offering exceptional massages at a unique location. 

You will find Aloha Moon Massage nestled just steps away from the beach in Old Town Kapaa. Located on Kou Street off of Kuhio Highway. In fact, it’s so close that you can see the ocean at the end of the street! Again, this massage and spa location is completely separate from any of the big resorts. Instead, it is owned and operated by an award-winning former trainer and massage therapist. 

Owner and operator Michelle Soto opened Aloha Moon Massage in 2017. Michelle previously worked for the famed luxury hotel chain St. Regis. She has an extensive history in the industry. She has worked with some of the world’s biggest sports and entertainment names, including Dustin Hoffman, Kenny Chesney, and Michelle Pfieffer. Today, she happily works with a team of other massage therapy specialists. Michelle provides expert services to clients that visit Kapaa from every corner of the globe.

Some notable services and massages offered at Aloha Moon Massage include:

Hawaiian Clay Treatment
This Hawaiian special begins with a gentle exfoliation to clear up the skin. It is then followed by a very special clay blend. This blend features wild-crafted volcanic clay from the Hawaiian islands mixed with native flowers and plants. This treatment works to detoxify and smooth one’s skin. The team at Aloha Moon Massage then fishes it up with a relaxing massage with your choice of coconut butter or oil. 

Lomi Lomi Massage Treatment
A Lomi Lomi Massage is a traditional Hawaiian massage. You don’t see it available at too many places outside of the Hawaiian islands. This unique treatment combines a special variety of massage techniques and local nut oils to knead the body and bring about rejuvenated energy. Being a traditional massage technique, some masseuses will incorporate elements of spirituality and dancing exercises in the treatment. Michelle and her team offer a highly recommended Lomi Lomi Massage Treatment. However, you might inquire more about it with the therapist team. Especially if it is your first time with this specialty massage option. 

CBD Enhancements
All of the massages available at Aloha Moon Massage have a starting rate and type that clients can then add on to if they desire more specialized services. Their CBD Enhancement is a great example and a great add-on choice for those who might suffer from especially sore muscles. Here, your Aloha Moon Massage massage therapist will take CBD oil and rub it into those sore muscles and painful spots to help relax and offer pain relief. This service also comes with hot stones for the absolute best effects. 

For all of their massage treatments, you can opt to make an appointment for just yourself or enjoy a discounted couples rate. They boast a nice beachside, an air-conditioned cabin that is just perfect for enjoying a first-rate massage with your romantic partner, friend, or family member. 

Insider Tip:
Go ahead and enjoy a walk-in appointment. A lot of massage therapy businesses in Kauai require appointments nowadays, but Aloha Moon Massage is the rare exception that still readily takes walk-ins and day-of calls. This has proved quite handy for many travelers who suddenly find themselves sore following a long hike or rough swim.
