Aloha Big Island my name is Annalise. I came to Big Island 7 years ago for school and ended up falling in love with the Big Island and its people. Today I am a recent graduate of Big Island Beauty Academy right here in Kona and certified in the ancient art of sugar waxing. With a new found passion for waxing and skin care, it is a goal of mine to help clients glow from the inside out and also establish long lasting connections to guide you through your skin wellness journey. Let me show you just how fun and relaxing facials and waxing can be!
I began my journey in the healing arts in 2018 with the modality of Reiki. Throughout my training I developed skills in working with the subtle energy field of the body, chakra alignment and understanding the connection between the mind, body and soul. Wanting to ground into the physical knowledge of the body, I began my massage therapist apprenticeship in 2019 at Aloha Massage Academy. While at school we explored techniques and modalities of Swedish, LomiLomi, Prenatal, Deep Tissue and Myofascial Release. In my practice I address the wellness of the client on an emotional, mental, physical and spiritual level. By having a holistic perspective, we can understand the many layers that can create dis-ease or tension within the physical body and get at the root cause generating a deeper sense of wellness and rejuvenation.
Aloha Kakou! I was born and raised in La'ie, Oahu, and being raised in such a small town I realized as I got older that there wasn't any place in my area that offered beauty services that catered specifically to women. So in 2019 I decided to go away to Las Vegas to the Academy of Hair Design and get licensed as an Esthetician. Shortly after graduating I got pregnant and then shortly after that COVID hit. Since then, I've gotten married to a boy from Hilo and been a full time mama, raising our babies here in Kona. The timing couldn't be more perfect for me to make a change and get back to work, waxing one wahine at a time. I look forward to seeing you soon! Aloha!
