WAIKIKI - A spa therapy combines ancient wisdom and modern science to let people put their best face forward. SpaHalekulani is offering a workshop on Facial Reflex Therapy Sorensensistem, a mixture of  Chinese energy meridians and acupuncture points, Vietnamese and South American body maps, and neuroanatomy that allows the therapist to identify imbalances in the patient’s health and begin the process of healing.

SpaHalekulani's Visiting Master Mariko Hiyama is in Hawaii through September 28 to practice this technique, and to demonstrate it at a public workshop on Saturday, September 23 from 10 a.m. - noon. She'll be teaching people how they can practice it on themselves. 

Hiyama's visit is part of the spa's Visiting Master Series. "In addition to the Reflex Therapy, Hiyama incorporates a technique called Japanese Cosmo Face Lifting, specifically for enhanced cosmetic appearance," describes spa director Kamala Nayeli.
