Enisa, LMT 

Hawaii State License #15190

Enisa is originally from Los Angeles and in search of healing came to Kauai in 2014. Along with the island's natural rejuvenating properties, she found massage to be very healing. Inspired by her experiences, she pursued a career in body work and graduated from Aloha Lomi Massage Academy in 2017, learning a wide range of modalities including Kauai Lomi Lomi massage. She's been receiving massage for most of her life and is now able to reciprocate the healing she received which she finds deeply satisfying.

Lora is a graduate of Pittsburgh School of Massage Therapy where she learned the techniques and benefits of trigger point therapy, Swedish massage, and Myofascial Release. She relocated to Hawaii to share the healing modalities of massage therapy with the locals and travelers of the islands. She studied Hawaiian Lomi Lomi massage on Kauai in 2016 and began working with Spa Makaiwa in 2018. She brings her knowledge and body awareness from 20 years of yoga practice and 10 years teaching yoga.
