Good vibrations

I’m pickin’ up good vibrations
She’s giving me excitations
Good, good, good—
good vibrations!


Surf’s up in Hawaii. But you won’t need a surfboard to catch this wave. Just follow Rebecca Goff. She’s got all the right moves, and she’ll be sure to get you out there where the Big Boys play. Whales just want to have fun. Tons of fun.

Rebecca is a marine naturalist, and she’ll treat you to AquaCranial Therapy—a spa treatment she developed while studying the behavior and movement of marine mammals. It’s done in the water, using John Upledger’s craniosacral massage technique. Incorporating precise and gentle touches to improve the circulation of cerebrospinal fluid that surrounds your brain and spinal cord, she’ll apply gentle pressure to the bones of your skull and along the lenth of your spine to facilitate your body’s natural healing process. The movement of the ocean’s waves and currents further accentuates her cranial sacral strokes.

During whale watching season, Rebecca—an active member of the Pacific Whale Foundation, a non-profit conservation program to protect Hawaii’s marine life—takes her clients out into the ocean to perform the therapy up-close-and-personal (how close is close, Rebecca?) with the whales. Their underwater vibrations are considered very healing for humans, further enhancing the benefits of AquaCranial Therapy. Contact Pure Maui for reservations.

Great call

refereeSo, who decides what’s fabulous?

I do! And because I’ve been identifying fabulous finds for years and years, you can trust my recommendations. Mostly, we’ll dish about food, wine, travel, and spas. Because that’s what I know best. On occasion, we’ll go off topic and talk about completely fabulous finds in other areas, like shopping, shoes, and Shih Tzus.

Don’t touch that dial…
