Try Lomiloni. The traditional style of Hawaii, it varies by family and by island. Often uses heated stones. Try it the next time you are visiting the islands.
Try reflexology. Therapist stimulates your foot with thumb and finger walking, and static pressure. Based on perceived flow of qi through meridians to the foot
Try stone massage. A therapist uses oil covered, smooth, hot or cold stones, usually basalt or marble, to massage the body.
Try Thai massage. Two hours of rhythmic pressing/stretching of the body, back walking, pulling fingers, ears, knuckles, and arching you into the cobra position
Try Watsu. A form of aquatic bodywork, it combines Shiatsu massage and hydrotherapy in a 95 deg hot tub. Developed in California in the 1980's
