“Sometimes I need to be reminded to be mindful and grateful for today’s gift and living in the present. Tomorrow is never promised to anyone.” Earl damassageguy
It’s been a privilege working on Riku Shibuya for a few weeks now getting him ready with Neural Reset Therapy (NRT) for his August 18, 2017 ONE Championship Flyweight fight in Malaysia. We have overcome our communication barrier by him telling or pointing to me where it hurts, I apply NRT and when he’s satisfied he gives me a thumbs up! Still amazed how fast NRT works on nerves and muscles issues. http://www.sherdog.com/fighter/Riku-Shibuya-40488
This review is for Earl Gushiken only. I have seen Earl about 5 times for a foot massage. His massages are heavenly. He’s very caring about the patient and has a very gentle and calm energy when he’s massaging. He’s also versed in several massage techniques and is attentive to the client’s needs and makes adjustments accordingly.
The other massage therapists look like they’re good too (their clients seem relaxed) but I know that I’ll be guaranteed a great massage with Earl. I always stop by to see if he’s working whenever I’m at Windward Mall (which isn’t often since I don’t live near).
I highly recommend Earl. Note: this business lowers the price a little bit (I think, 10%) if paying with cash.
*Earl – Damassageguy works here Thursday and Friday nights 5-9pm, Sunday 10am-6pm.
“What is Neural Reset Therapy (NRT)?
Neural Reset Therapy® (NRT) is derived from the work of two great scientists, Sherrington and Pflüger, who investigated the nervous system more than a century ago to uncover its basic operating principles.
The Law of Reciprocal Inhibition and the Law of Symmetry have mostly remained in the laboratory until now. NRT is a practical, rapid and reliable way to apply these laws of physiology with an advanced form of manual therapy.
Muscles are controlled by the nervous system. Proper application of NRT resets the nervous system to release a muscle from excessive tension. With the release, the knots, pain and tightness are gone. Joint mobility and posture are improved.
Note that NRT is not an energetic method, but is based on sound physiological and neurological principles.
How NRT is different from the usual methods of massage, physical therapy or chiropractic:
- No massaging of muscles or deep pressure required
- Virtually no use of thumbs – very easy on the therapist’s hands
- Done fully clothed without lotions or creams
- No face-down positions, joint adjustments or stretching
- No mechanical, electrical devices used. (Note 1)
- No drugs or natural substances applied”

Note 1. Since this article was written, a mechanical device has been added to expedite the stimulation in the NRT process.
My journey of massage has allowed me to take care our keikis and kupunas. It has been a blessing to be able to give back to our island community. I will always strive to first administer the gentle techniques I have learned and gradually go to deeper techniques when needed. My intent is to improve each client’s issue by positioning the body in such a way so it can heal itself. Mahalo
This is now my “go to” therapy. Every valuable massage lesson/technique that I have learned so far will be used to augment NRT. I am so grateful for all the teachers/instructors who had taught me about massage and taking care of the client in the most effective manner.
