Ken and Christine Bevis, both healing practitioners, had worked in many different places, both in Hawai‘i and internationally. They wanted to take the quality of service they could provide to the next level and decided to open their own business with an eclectic menu of services.
The couple chose the location of the former Hawai‘i Island School of Massage, which was closing its doors at Pualani Terrace in Kealakekua, and the space became available. “The school always had such wonderful energy,” Ken explained, “and the area is known for its healing properties.”
Island Spirit is open seven days a week, from 10 a.m. to
6 p.m., offering a full range of massage therapy and spa services, plus herbal hand-and-foot care, facials and waxing. “We also offer acupuncture, shiatsu, reiki, lomi lomi, hypnotherapy and more. We take most insurance that supports acupuncture and massage. We feel fortunate to have attracted our excellent team of therapists,” says Ken.
The couple has lived on the island for 10 years. Christine has a masters’ degree in health education and has worked with Olympic athletes in Switzerland, along with owning her own fitness studio. Ken studied hypnotherapy in the ‘80s, then added many different styles of healing therapies and has continued to expand his range of experiences in physical and metaphysical arenas. Both have studied many kinds of massage therapy, are nationally recognized and licensed.
“Island Spirit has a wonderful healing atmosphere that has to be experienced to be appreciated, Our primary goal is to have our guests feel safe and comfortable and to match them with the best therapist possible. If you are looking for relaxation, stress- or pain relief and desiring a deeper level of healing or just simply wanting to look and feel more beautiful, we invite you to stop by,” offer Ken and Christine.
