After receiving a gift certificate to Keoni, I decided to give it a try because he came so highly recommended. I was pleasantly surprised how knowledgeable Keoni was, and even more surprised how well I felt afterwards. He has great hands! I was not sore, nor did I feel extremely fatigued, but rather refreshed. I now send my own clients to him when they have completed their physical therapy!Kim Brummett
Keoni Salgado has been my massage therapist for over 15 years. He has worked on me once or twice a week consistently for all of that time. He has never stood me up, missed an appointment, or been late in over 15 years. He is absolutely the best body worker and massage therapist I have ever had or I’ve ever experienced!Ken Kadansky
Keoni is the best. Intuitive, caring and filled with energy. I’ve never experienced more healing hands than his.Alan Arkin
I’ve known Keoni for a few years now. Since I am a health professional by myself I am picky. So finding a massage therapist for myself was not easy. Keoni is knowledgeable and professional. I see him regularly for massages and have referred him to clients and friends.Nicole Hansult
I just love the cupping. As an athlete I am constantly hard on my muscles. Nothing helps relieve the tension as much as the cupping does. Keoni has a way of making me feel like I’m as light as a feather when I walk out of there. I highly recommend him.Piper
