Kaipo’s journey in healing began at a young age, attending to his grandmother during her last days with cancer. Kaipo then focused his academics towards health and well-being, graduating from the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa, double majoring in Psychology and Hawaiian Studies with the focus in Aloha ʻĀina. Through the many mentors that have shown light on this path, Kaipo was then shown the healing art of massage therapy. Kaipoʻs foundation in massage began at HHAC, graduating in 2018. His lomilomi mentors include Dr. Kaliko Chang and Leinaʻala Bright. Kaipo has been working as a Lomilomi Kākoʻo at Waimānalo Health Center since 2019. Kaipoʻs focus in his work is to bring the mind, the body, and the spirit into alignment through the creation of a healing space. He intuitively structures his massages based upon the needs of his clients, while maintaining the invocation of the heart and soul.
Aloha, my is name Robyn, a 2014 graduate of Hawaii Healing Arts College. I have practiced massage as a Licensed Therapist for 7 years and Nationally Certified since 2020. My journey with massage started at a very young age watching my great grandmother and aunt perform their methods of massage on my grandmother, who suffered from chronic arthritis. Their beliefs that healing begins from the inside out is where I gathered my passion to help others. I started my own practice at Arcadia Retirement Home and 15 Craigside Retirement Home, focusing specifically on geriatrics. My techniques include Swedish massage, deep tissue, myofascial release, stretching and muscle energy. Since then I have expanded my experience working in various massage clinics and spas on Oahu, Hilo, Florida and Texas where I was introduced to hot stones and cupping. I look forward to continuing my passion and creating massage sessions that best suit my clients needs.

As a little girl, Karren was no stranger to massage. Her dad would always ask for an elbow in his traps or a neck rub, and she fondly recalls “chopping vegetables for beef stew” on her mom’s back. She decided to pursue a career in massage after changing her major from Mechanical Engineering to Kinesiology at Oregon State University. Karren was sitting in an introductory class to Kinesiology that covered the different career paths one could take when Sports Massage Therapy was presented. “I could do that and get signed to an NFL Team if I wanted to. I’ve been massaging my dad for years, and he’s 6’5” and 340 lbs—piece of cake," she thought to herself. There, the idea of becoming a massage therapist was planted. After leaving Oregon, Karren returned to her family home in Kailua and enrolled in Hawaii Healing Arts College where the once tiny seed took root, and the foundations of massage became woven into her everyday life.While at HHAC, she worked different jobs in restaurants and as a Registered Behavior Technician working with autistic children, but she knew her calling was different. She graduated from HHAC in 2018 and created her practice Knots Out LLC and has been making a living on massage ever since. Through her gift of healing, Karren’s practice addresses the deeper causes of muscle pain, fatigue, and overuse. Her keen understanding of the mental and emotional toll on the body allows her to alleviate the stresses of the mind, body, and spirit by incorporating deep tissue, sports massage, gentle stretching, and contemporary cupping methods to release tension and stored trauma. Karren focuses on creating a genuine relationship with clients and develops a treatment plan based on each client’s individual needs.
