Healing and Treatment
Ho'omana Spa Healing and Treatment
The practitioners who work at Ho'omana Spa are well-versed in the traditional elements of healing—and well-connected to the elements. Those who are familiar with modern spas, like the ones found in the Maui hotels, will feel right at home. Hot-stone treatments, aromatherapy, and facials are all available, using fine Hawaiian botanicals. But that's just one part of the experience. After-sun treatment is especially restorative after visiting the beach. An aloe body wrap or red clay masque will leave you skin feeling renewed and silkier than ever before. Ho'omana Spa also offers several varieties of massage, including Lomi Lomi. This old-style treatment has been passed down through the generations throughout the Hawaiian islands. For another experience entirely, guests can spend time in the sweat lodge. The ceremony, designed to purify both body and mind, features singing and chanting while heated stones are carefully put into place.
