About the Practitioner

Aloha and Mahalo for visiting Ho’omaluhia Healing Bodywork, your retreat for energy healing and therapeutic bodywork.  I am Richard Castro.  I bring to my clients over 20 years of practical bodywork experience.

Ho’omaluhia is defined as the creation of peace and tranquility.  When I moved to Maui from California in 2004, I wanted to create a space that represents my journey, a life that I have found here on Maui, a life of ho’omaluhia.  It is in this space that I offer bodywork to you.

I have been on a spiritual journey for over 30 years.  It was during this time that I discovered the healing arts and was drawn to bodywork.  I knew immediately that this was my path.  I then made the decision to leave the corporate world after 23 years, and follow this new path of healing.  In 1997, I graduated from The Healing Arts Institute in Sacramento, California, and established El Sol, La Luna where I performed bodywork for 7 years.  In 2003, Gale and I were drawn to Hawaii, and after visiting each of the islands, felt the strongest connection to Maui.  We moved to Pukalani in July 2004, leaving behind two grown daughters. Once on Maui I discovered  and connected with the healing energies that I now share  with you.

It is my intention that while working on my clients they experience this healing energy fully, leaving them feeling more spiritually centered, grounded and heart connected.
