Aloha, my name is Michelle Ken Ken. I am originally from Tokyo, Japan, but I am now living on Oahu, Hawaii with my two dogs.
I work as a health guide and my goal is to share useful, free information about alternative medicine and body therapy. Formerly, I worked as a massage therapist at several island hotels. I quickly realized selling unhealthy products that were tested on animals and doing tourist-style “lomi lomi” was disrespectful and not the right fit for me.
After this time, I began working on a project that involved teaching Ayurvedic therapy to Japanese students. Even this was not of the quality that I experienced in India and I felt guilty to continue.
Through volunteering with local animal rights organizations, I found a community of strong, passionate friends. My goal is to offer as much care and advice that I can give to this community.
I love to do illustration, especially for a good cause with animal rights organizations. My most recent project was for Aloha Animal Sanctuary to tell Haku’s story.
