About


img_5419Eri Mahealani Sakai-Virden

Owner, Kumu Lomi, Lomilomi Practitioner, Aromatherapist, LMT

Eri’s love for Hawaii started at an early age. A native of Nagoya, Japan, her family traveled often to Hawaii, and she remembers falling in love with the islands, the culture, and everything Hawaiian from the age of nine, deepening with every trip here.

Eri’s youth included a rich educational background, both scholastically as well as in the healing realm. She credits two teachers who made the greatest impact on her in this way. The first of these was Ms. Saburi, who taught Eri through demonstration and observation, the ability to bring forth healing using energy. Her father also shared with her his gift of an understanding of healing energy through his own spirituality.

Eri studied dance, through ballet, from a very early age. This grace served her later when she began to study hula with Hawaiian kumu who traveled to Japan. Her poise and love of Hawaiian music and hula led her to a coveted spot in a competing halau in the Big Island’s Merrie Monarch Festival in the year 2000. In 2007, she returned to the Merrie Monarch stage with her hula sisters and Kumu Kapua Dalire as a Hawaii resident, and she was truly excited.

Lomilomi and Hawaiian healing arts became a profound interest after successfully completing and becoming certified in a rigorous course of study in aromatherapy, anatomy and physiology in Japan. She enrolled in Long Life Lomilomi under Kumu Dane Silva in Pahoa, Hawaii, and studied with him for several years. She also studied with Kumu Alva Andrews for many years. This led to the opening of her own lomilomi and aromatherapy clinic in Nagoya, which she successfully ran for over four years.

Eri moved to Hawaii twelve years ago, now has two sons, ages seven and nine years. She assisted Kumu Brenda with teaching lomilomi workshops at Hawaii Healing Arts College and other locations. She earned her Kumu Lomi status with HLA 2005, and now shares her many gifts at Lomilomi Hana Lima. One of these gifts is her use of listening skills, which awakens her intuition and allows her to express her loving compassion.

Eri also has many high profile repeat clients. Please contact her directly if you are interested in her high quality private house call services. Eri’s special out call fees are not listed on the spa service menu.

Mission Statement:
As humans we forget how important it is to take time for ourselves. When someone walks into my treatment room they often carry the weight of the world on their shoulders. It is my goal to remind clients that every day is a new beginning, how important it is to not focus on what might have been and to instead look at the possibilities of what can be done. It is my belief that healthy skin goes deeper than the surface. I will share this knowledge by educating people about the importance of skin health. I look forward to becoming your skin care companion in accomplishing YOUR goals with YOUR skin.
