Laura Cavanaugh, LMT
I entered the Massage profession as a way to work for myself while I worked on my art (which has since faded away). That was in 1996 before the spa explosion when there were fewer Licensed Massage Therapists and it was commonplace to have a masseuse (yes, I believe it is ok to use the word masseuse) provide mobile service in your home. I believe there will be a return to this way of receiving Massage and Bodywork as people are becoming more savvy to the fact that luxury spa treatment does not always equal best therapeutic massage session. Besides, do you really want to drive after your session?
I thoroughly love practising the art of Massage Therapy and other Bodywork modalities. I continue to train and learn new skills in order to provide the best Massage or Bodywork session possible for the body on my table. If I had unlimited stores of money, I would still be practising Massage and Bodywork - I believe it is that helpful to people. I would not be doing it otherwise. As I dive deeper into the study of Bodywork... I see a Somatics course on the horizon.
I am professionally trained in: Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Sports Massage, Hawaiian Lomi Lomi Massage, Pregnancy and Chair Massage, Dr Upledger's CranioSacral Therapy, The Ida Rolf Method of Structural Integration, Erik Dalton's MyoSkeletal Alignment, The Flocco Method of Foot Hand and Ear Reflexology, Usui Reiki, Thai Massage, La Stone Therapy and am also a certified Corrective Exercise Specialist by the National Academy of Sports Medicine.

I specialize in listening to what you want and delivering it to you in a custom session. I do not hire staff so all massages are done one after the other. One person, One table, One at a time.
I travel island-wide to most Hotels, Condos, Vacation Rentals, Apartments, and Homes in the various areas of Maui including Wailea, Kihei, Maalaea Harbor, Kahului, Wailuku, Lahaina, Napili, Kaanapali, Kapalua, Paia, Kula, Haiku, and Makawao.
I have worked in high-end spas, chiropractors' offices, gyms, trade shows, low-end spas, sports fishing resorts, parties, events, private homes, wellness centers as well as my own private office. I have worked as a licensed Massage Therapist in Los Angeles, San Diego, Kentucky, Alaska, and Hawaii.
