Health and Wellness for your Big Day
We’ve added this section because too many brides allow stress from their wedding preparation to take over. Don’t be a bridezilla! Shed the stress, find balance, and enjoy every moment. That’s what you should do, and here are some health and wellness practitioners that can help you on Maui.
Maui’s Best Massage
Sometimes your relaxation skills need a little boost, even on Maui. With a cozy studio location in Wailea, Maui’s Best Massage offers professional massage services from 8 am to 6 pm daily, including Relaxation, Deep Tissue, Lomi Lomi, Couples, and Group Massages. Whether you want to work off the stiffness from the flight or simply enjoy ultimate relaxation in a tropical paradise, the professionalism and experience at Maui’s Best Massage are sure to deliver.
Alternately, in case you don’t want to bother with driving to and from the studio, they also offer outcall massage services to any location on Maui, including your resort, hotel, condo, vacation home, and more. With their available mobile massage options, stress relief is only a phone call away. Options include 60, 75, 90, and 120-minute massages. Please visit Maui’s Best Massage or call 808.426.7418 for more information.
Even the most staunchly chill brides can have their stressed-out moments- the compounding pressure of weddings is enough to make anyone break. Take a much-needed moment, or hour, or, heck, a whole day for yourself at the luxuriating Spa Montage Kapalua Bay. Tranquility and pampering are paramount at this upscale spa, and the staff at the Spa Montage treat guests like it’s their mission in life to lull you into a state of harmony and repose. The relaxing spell is cast immediately upon check-in with a complimentary glass of Kava and pineapple juice as you’re led away for your treatment of choice. Rejuvenate in the spa’s hydrotherapy center, spoil your skin with a bamboo and ginger body polish, or melt away stress with a soak in a mineral bath followed by a massage. You’ll leave feeling ready to take on any wedding snafu.
Sprout Vegan Cafe
Weddings tend to involve lots of food, lots of cake, and of course, lots of alcohol. A whirlwind wedding can easily leave you feeling weary. The best way to combat wedding fatigue?

With fresh local ingredients, adaptogen add-on options, and immunity shots also featured on the menu, Sprout can certainly bring you back to tip-top shape.
