Karyn Chapman - Aroha Nui Massage Therapist
I bring you 17+ years of therapeutic massage experience. 12 years in New Zealand and 5+ years in U.S.A.
Born and raised in the North Island of New Zealand, I began my career mentored in a community house by a gifted Osteopath, Naturopath and Craniosacral Therapist. During the 3 years I was there I also completed a Health Science Certification. I returned to my home town and for 9 years ran a successful massage business from home. During this time I studied and gained certifications in Naturopathy, Aromatherapy, Reflexology, a Diploma in Aquarian Healing and Reiki Master.
I immigrated to U.S.A at the beginning of 2005 to marry my fiance'. While awaiting residency status I volunteered for a therapeutic riding program where I expanded my skills and knowledge of working with horses (my 2nd passion!) in a therapeutic capacity. I discovered that working with equine assisted activities and therapy for children and adults with disabilities was both challenging and fun!
In 2011 I attended U.S.Career Institutes' massage Therapy program where I gained valuable experience in sports massage, chair massage and a form of deep tissue massage;- active/passive release.
I also practice Craniosacral Therapy (CST). This is a gentle form of body work focused on regulating the flow of the cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) via the sutures (synarthrodial joints) of the cranium (head) and the sacrum (triangle shaped bone between the end of the spinal column & the tailbone). I aim to access the clients own inherent health regardless of their presenting symptoms. I act as a reflecting ground for the clients healing experiences therefore the healing process is at the clients own pace. Sessions are facilitated by me and directed by the clients own inner physician.
Eddie Vernon - Licensed Acupuncturist
With a Masters of Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego, California, a certification by the National Commission for the Certification of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) as a Diplomat of Oriental Medicine (Dipl. OM), and a license from the Commonwealth of Virginia Acupuncture Licensing Board, Eddie Vernon has credentials that are unmatched, and he has the experience to equal his certifications.
After earning a four-year degree in acupuncture and Chinese pharmacology from Pacific College, he traveled to China to complete his post-graduate work at Chengdu University Hospital in the Sichuan Province. Spending 6 years apprenticing with Dr. Richard Tan, Master Acupuncturist from Taiwan, he learned the art of pain management and stress relief. By working in the integrative medical department at Rady Children’s Hospital treating children with chronic pain and providing acupuncture at San Diego Hospice for hospice patients’ pain relief and palliative care, he learned a compassion and sensitivity for patients’ needs that permeates his practice of acupuncture. Add two years as the onboard acupuncturist for Royal Caribbean International’s largest cruise ships and extensive clinical experience, and it is clear that Eddie is beyond qualified to provide you with the service that you and your pain have needed.
For the past 3 years, Eddie has worked in Honolulu, Hawaii at Tripler Army Medical Center’s Interdisciplinary Pain Management Center. While there he provided acupuncture to military service members and veterans as part of an integrative team of medical doctors, chiropractors, massage therapists, and yoga instructors.
