Kaname Ikeda

Hello, my name is Kaname Ikeda (Master Loquat Leaf Heat Treatment Certified Instructor) from Miyazaki, Japan, I moved to Kailua Kona, Hawaii in 2017 and I currently live on Oahu. 

I have been interested in health for a long time, but my interest grew after I had a miscarriage for my first child. As a result of the miscarriage, I decided to focus more strongly on a healthier lifestyle and began to seriously study natural remedies and holistic care.

My first encounter with Loquat Heat Treatment can be traced back when I was looking for something I could do to help a loved one recover from the cancer.(2013)
I decided to start sharing loquat heat treatment as a certified instructor, which helped save our lives, and share our experiences so we can give hope to those who are suffering now.
I had the great opportunity to study under the guidance of Mrs. Akemi Nagatomo (the first certified instructor of loquat leaf heat therapy and was involved in the creation of the loquat heat treatment device), who has been engaged in this therapy in Japan for many years. I was able to acquire the correct knowledge and methods for loquat leaf heat therapy and obtained Master Loquat Leaf Heat Treatment Certified Instructor.
I am grateful to study under Mrs. Nagatomo, a leading expert of loquat heat treatment. I am making daily efforts to provide careful and wholehearted loquat heat treatment with the teachings from my teacher.

Steven Hage

Hello, my name is Steven Hage (Hawaii Licensed Massage Therapist) from Minnesota .

Ever since I was young and massaging my mothers shoulders after a hard day of work or a headache I was told that I should try massage.  I have always been interested in the body and how it works.  Massage therapy was a natural extension of those interests.

After many different paths through life I found myself in Hawaii in 2017 and in 2018 I was again pushed in the direction of massage after meeting Kaname and learning about Loquat Heat Treatment but it wasn’t until 2022 that I took the first steps to become a massage therapist.  Since then I have developed an even deeper appreciation of the body and a love for helping others with their bodies needs and pains.  With my training at MyoPro Institute in Kona I have learned to respect the client, digest their concerns and use that information to design a treatment to help with their issues.  I have learned how life changing massage can be and I enjoy every chance I have to share it with you. 

I believe that my Massage in combination with Loquat Heat treatment can help provide relief and healing for my clients.
