"She is creative in approach and really focused on you getting better in the practical way. Her treatments helped me to access 30 years of chronic conditions layer by layer. She knows what she is doing and feeling the positive results as I walk out from the appointment and the freedom lasts very long time after is just amazing. I look forward to keep working with her."

"When arriving in Kauai I researched acupuncturists to help me, my husband and son de stress. I found Flora and booked appointments for us all. I have been to many acupuncturists over the last 20 years and found Flora one of the most knowledgeable practitioners I have met. She immediately got to the core of our separate issues and gave us powerful and relaxing acupuncture and tua nan treatments.
To help me specifically with my circulation issues in my hip and legs, she introduced me to her Flo Stick that she makes. It is comprised of many bamboo like wrapped sticks that you slap against your body. I immediately had to have one and bought one from her. Now I can treat myself with Flo Stick!" Kate Madrigal
"Flora came highly recommened from a few people I know. This was my first time getting acupuncture. Flora was very professional and intuitive. She seemed to know exactly what I needed. I feel really great after the treatment & will definitely visit her office again." Rose Walker
"I arrived in Kaui with a horrible sinus infection that I could not get rid of. I googled and yelped the best acupuncturist in Kaui and Flora kept coming up. I called her and was so nice and understanding on the phone. She came to my hotel and after only spending an hour and a half with her, I felt like a new person. She was extremely gentle, kind and calming. I was so impressed, I immediately scheduled another appointment with her three days later. I was so thankful I did. She did acupuncture and cupping and got everything moving out of my sinuses and lungs. I truly believe if I had not seen her, I would still be feeling horrible. I can not recommend her enough. I only wish I lived closer to her so I could see her on a regular basis." N Hill
"My first experience with acupuncture was with Flora of Dakine hands. She was extremely professional and detail oriented which made the process quite pleasant. Flora made certain I was comfortable and relaxed the entire time. A neck strain that had been bothering me for months is finally starting to feel better after our session together. Im looking forward to a follow up with her soon." Dave M
"Flora was a complete angel and helped me with my horrible shoulder pain. She has a passion for what she does, has amazing knowledge and skills, and above all, is so kind and compassionate. She has an office space in Hanalei and is also willing to come to you. She has obvious skills in acupuncture, cupping, and nutrition. Don't hesitate at all to give her a call and get the help you need." Greg Monaco
"Flora recharged my being & my body ! My 70 years old legs feel like 16 again ! She helps me stay in love with myself ! What a blessing for my body & soul 🙏"
"I came to Flora in a state of confusion. I was desperate for help and not happy with the other things tried. I was provided with the type of bedside manner, consideration of my views other doctors have never given me.
What I can offer is there is no over juiced pill here. It takes time and the more committed one is, sooner and better results you obtain.
I really look forward to each visit as I ALWAYS have an experience to share!
I have done traditional medicine most my life, I am most happy with Dakine Acupuncture.
It is my opinion if one tries Dakine it will prove rewarding
I have much better mobility, brief or non existing headaches, (down from 24-32 hr ones.)
As in all things no two,are exactly alike. Know your practioner!" Magnificent Reg
"I have received 4 sessions from Flora. She has impressed me with her knowledge and skill. She uses a wide array of methods – needles, moxibustion, cups, and tuning forks. What I most appreciate is her passion to understand in general, and particularly to understand my unique constitution. She is a Sherlock Holmes of health. Her demeanor is gentle, compassionate, and relaxed." Stephen Starenko
"I went on vacation and prior to this injured my back badly. I just happen to shop in the Hanalei Organic grocery store when I told the lady about my back and she recommended me to Flora. I called her and even though she was dealing with the flood helping, she managed to come and treat me. I had 2 sessions. Flora is highly professional, explains everything to you before starting. Looks at your tong, eyes, hands, color of your skin. Then she starts and again explains to you what she is doing and why. Her touch is soft and her salves that are 100% homemade are fantastic. When she did acupuncture she knew exactly where I was hurt. Also, she checks up on you after to make sure you are doing well and give you tips to improve your health and well being. I wish i could have taken her back with me ! She cares, her energy puts you in condition by just saying hello to her. Go and see her you will not regret it."
"Flora went out of her way to accommodate my needs. As an expectant mother this meant a lot to have her come to my house and help me at last minutes notice. She gave me an induction treatment that was relaxing and affective. She puts extra time into all the little details that added up to the best acupuncture treatment I’ve ever had. Thank you flora!!" Cheyanne Price
"I am a former pro beach athlete with many experiences keeping the mind body and soul working efficiently to accomplish the goals at hand. One is with Acupunture and the understanding that there is an added benefit to Acupunture when you feel comfortable and confident with the person providing this service. Flora has amazing knowledge and experience that helped me find the right path to keeping me focused and healthy. Because of her help, I have been able to do the things I haven’t been able to do in 5 years. Things as simple as walking up stairs with confidence to playing beach volleyball again at a fun competitive level.
Thank you!" Mark Paaluhi
"I have done a good amount of acupuncture before, and it is not something Where I just trust anyone doing these kinds of treatment to my body. I found Flora to be very knowledgeable and attentive. She really works with what you want out of the session and is all ears. My treatment helped my shoulder with mobility and got the blood flowing through my muscles really well. Would recommend if you have a tight spot that won't let up or are looking to relax!" Brandon Mitchell
