AMY HASTANAN, L.Ac, LMT is a dually licensed Acupuncturist and Massage Therapist, with over 13 years of experience in the field of complimentary and alternative medicine. Amy's private practice is located in the heart of Kaimuki on the island of Oahu.
She received her initial massage training in Thai Bodywork, from Asokananda's Sunshine Network, Thailand (2005) and continued her studies at NYC's, Swedish Institute (2008), the oldest continuously operating massage therapy institution in the United States. She has spent her career working alongside chiropractors and physical therapists, which has guided her focus towards pain management and rehabilitation for acute and chronic pain, post-surgery and injuries. Amy completed her Master's of Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) in 2015, from Honolulu's Institute for Clinical Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.
Amy now blends the anatomical knowledge gained from her medical massage experiences with her understanding of the meridian system to create individualized treatments; a mix of East and West. Amy’s massage style of choice is deep tissue with acupressure and ashiatsu; switching between the use of hands and feet. Amy is certified in both Sarga Bodywork® and Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy® (AOBT).
I am intrigued by the anatomy and the bodies potential. My goal is to alleviate peoples' pain, so it is no longer a hindrance or burden to their joy. Maintenance through self care and bodywork is a lifestyle.
