Aloha! My name is Denise Ramsay and I have been practicing massage for over 15 years. It is a privilege to work at the Hawaiian Experience Spa and to serve members seeking a unique healing experience. I work hard to deliver a tailored treatment that is suited to the specific needs and wishes of each honored quest. As a practitioner, I excel at Swedish massage, but I can also perform deep tissue and other therapeutic modalities designed to address soft tissue problems. In addition, I enjoy practicing the sacred art of lomi lomi and the other body treatments offered as part of the Hawaiian Experience.
I am originally from southern California, where I spent the first 30 years of my life. To get away from the rat race, and to heal a stress related illness, I decided to move to Arizona nearly 8 years ago. When I made the change, I quickly learned the truth behind the statement, no matter where you go, there you are. Consequently, it took some time, but once I began to change myself from the inside-out, mostly by making choices that supported my own wellbeing and honored my own truth, I eventually found healing.
As a result of my healing journey, my philosophy on the topic of health is both holistic and comprehensive. Today, I strive to maintain a balanced lifestyle that addresses the needs of the mind, body, and spirit. Some of my favorite self-care activities include fitness, yoga, nutrition, reading, play, and spending time with loved ones. To round out my healing pursuits, I am currently seeking a master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling. Someday I hope to open a studio that places different mind-body therapies under one roof, thus providing individuals with an experiential understanding of the holistic nature of healing.
In our fast-paced culture, where we are encouraged to achieve more, consume more, and do more, finding time to rejuvenate, and to simply be, is unconventional. In this regard, I am dedicated to living rebelliously. It is therefore my greatest passion to fulfill the intention of living a healthy, balanced lifestyle, and to help others do the same.
