Keith Starkey

Board Member Nicaragua

Keith was trained in Hawaii at the Maui School of Therapeutic Massage in the town of Makawao on the tranquil slopes of Haleakala in 2001. He specializes in Hawaiian Lomi-Lomi and lymphatic drainage and release massage techniques. Over the last 21 years he has accumulated a vast knowledge of the human body and has worked on hundreds of beings both human and animal.

The strokes and pressure used in Lomi-Lomi range from zero as in Reiki to connect energetically, through light lymphatic stimulation up to deep tissue/sports therapies. Lomi-Lomi brings peace, balance and unconditional Aloha in to the body to let the World fall away where healing can begin. Whether its just for relaxation or for therapeutic reasons the result is the same; you are transformed. Traditional Lomi-Lomi is about LOVE, healing and human connection.

Keith lived on the islands of Maui and The Big Island up till 2018 when the lava from the Kilauea eruption took his home, he then moved to the powerful and beautiful area of Sedona, Arizona where he continued to bring love and light into the World. It was in Sedona that he met Xi Miao Jingshen, director of Kaivalya and was introduced to the philosophy of Quantum Naturopathic Cellular Healing. He has since moved to Nicaragua and is a board member of the Kaivalya community.
