Harumi is a licensed esthetician who is the first one to introduce Facial Reflexology to Hawaii
After studying ballet for 25 years at various ballet companies in Japan, she had to give up her love for ballet because of an injury. She shifted her focus on studying Yoga and Taichi. She also took an interest in learning Eastern medicine where it focuses on bringing the body’s own healing power.

in 2009 and Neuro Foot Reflexology Parxis Veterbrailis diploma in 2010.
Harumi moved to Hawaii last year and obtained her esthetician license, and started to practice Facial Reflexology at local luxurious wellness Spa. She was introduced as the first Facial Reflexology Therapist in Hawaii on KHON-TV’s morning news in August of 2011.
Facial reflexology was developed by Lone Sorensen in Spain. It is a complimentary therapy that combines three ancient therapies with modern science of neurology. It is the combination of traditional Chinese medicine, South American Zone Therapy, and Vietnamese face maps and points to our most current knowledge of neuro-anatomy.
Facial Reflexology therapist examines the face to address the area of possible imbalance. Areas with imbalances are often accumulating deposits (toxins). By stimulating these facial pressure/trigger points and loosening the deposits, it will increase lymphatic and blood circulations, improves body function, and balances the hormones.
Treatment is customized to each individual’s needs to regain optimal physical, psychological and energetic health. Everyone can benefit from this therapy no matter of your age and skin types.
