George Davis

Licensed Massage Therapist #5011

I moved to Hawaii in 1986 and quickly fell in love with triathlon, marathon, and open ocean swimming…but the training was hard on my body. My coach suggested I try massage and after experiencing the healing benefits of massage and bodywork for myself, I knew that helping people feel better was what I wanted to do.

I spent 4 intense years of training and emerged with licenses in both massage and acupuncture. Because of my connections within the triathlon community my first clients were all athletes. However, as I began seeing on more and more people – and began experiencing and incorporating new modalities into my work – I was able to address a much broader range of issues along with a more diverse clientele.

Fast forward 20+ years and the result is a very specific and effective pain management technique called Integrated Modalities Bodywork, IMB, that incorporates Western, Eastern, and Energetic work into a style that’s incredibly beneficial to anyone experiencing any level of myofascial pain or discomfort.

I’m so fortunate that The Pain Relief Center has grown from just me to a thriving Center that includes other IMB trained therapists as well as, Acupuncture, and Day Spa Services. I’ve also begun using low level lasers – incredibly effective technology that operates on a cellular level and is the perfect compliment to IMB.

My goal is to help people realize that they don’t have to live in pain… and that the best way to feel more comfortable is with consistent, effective bodywork.

Kevin Schoonmaker

Licensed Massage Therapist #14341

My passion for helping people heal and attain higher levels of wellness began while I was a medic in the U.S. Army. I’d always been a “Gym Rat,” and as I trained myself to be at my top level of fitness, other Army personnel started asking me to help them – which, of course, I did. Watching them grow, and change not only their fitness, but their lives was so satisfying for me that as I transitioned from Army to civilian life, I successfully pursued a career in personal training.

After I moved to Hawaii, I wanted to find more ways to help people heal. I continued my work as a professional personal trainer, but decided that massage therapy school was the first step on the path towards becoming a true body healer. It wasn’t long before my journey led me to Energetic healing practices, specifically Reiki (Japanese), Qi Gong (Chinese), and Huna (Hawaiian).

From there, it was a natural progression to obtaining a Master’s Degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. My studies at The World Medicine Institute, located in Honolulu, HI are now complete and I will receive my Acupuncture license by the end of 2018. My educational areas of study include: traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture, Taoist medicine, Qigong, and herbal medicine.

I’m grateful that my passion for wellness has brought me on this journey and I’m committed to being a benefit to others by teaching them about wellness and helping them to attain the healthiest bodies possible.

Jon Wilson

Licensed Acupuncturist #1257

I’ve been training in the martial arts for many years, not for self-defense but for self-development. The training requires incredible physical exertion, but it also teaches the necessity of daily body maintenance and developing ways to fix any injuries.

I was first introduced to acupuncture through Jiu Jitsu training. The regular treatments helped me recover from physical injuries, but they also effected me at a deeper level – a benefit I never anticipated. I quickly came to realize that not only was acupuncture necessary if I wanted longevity in my sport, but it was also invaluable in helping me maintain a healthy mind.

My journey towards Traditional Chinese Medicine began through the classical teachings of Taoism (and it’s teachings of self-preservation), Qi Gong, and meditation practices. I found a home at The World Medicine Institute in Honolulu where I obtained a Masters of Science in Acupuncture and where they taught me to apply a classical approach to my treatments.

My experience as both a recipient and a practitioner of acupuncture opened my eyes to the idea that true richness in life is the understanding of how to maintain ones health, not only physically but also mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. This realization was a pivotal moment in my life – one that continually guides me on my path to help others achieve optimal health, too.

I’m so excited to be part of a group that is so dedicated to helping people feel better in their bodies and look forward to helping as many people as I can achieve the balance that results in true health.
