Balance Point's owner, Michael Merrimer, LMT 5342 has been teaching and working with clients on Oahu since 1998. A gifted massage therapist, he is focused on helping his clients be more proactive in addressing stiffness, soft tissue pain, and stress-related discomforts. A caring, nurturing massage therapist he understands that discomfort, pain and stiffness often motivate people to seek massage. However, regular massage can PREVENT these undesirable effects of exercise, aging, accident or illness.

Balance Point Health Centered-Massage is focused on the clients needs at the time of the visit. Sometimes you just need to relax, let go, and rejuvenate yourself. We call this a Relaxation Massage Re-Set Through Swedish massage and conscious breathing techniques.
Michael says: "I help you turn off your left-brain and draw your mind into your physical body. Slowly, gently I help you to leave behind the worldly stresses that seem forever present. As the massage progresses to areas of tight muscles and sore tissue, we work to let go of the conscious tension and allow the muscles to melt and relax. Gradually your busy conscious mind quiets and your thinking flows into waves of deep relaxation. Often, time seems to stop. Cares and worries forgotten, you breathe deeply into a world of stillness and peace. Your tissue softens; your joints expand; your heart begins a rejuvenating pace as your blood carries away stress and tiring waste products. For the rest of the massage you seemingly float on a warm cushion of healing touch. Gradually your breathing deepens as your conscious mind merges with your body and you feel refreshed and energized. Re-entering the world, you feel supported by your body and able to handle all those things you have to do today."
