Wellness Programs in Honolulu

Manakai O Malama wellness services focus on lifestyle medicine. Lifestyle medicine is the field of medicine that balances medical treatment with lifestyle modifications. There is substantial evidence that positive lifestyle habits are vital to good health. This approach emphasizes the importance of daily lifestyle decisions and practices and their impact on short and long-term health and quality of life. Our goal is helping patients achieve optimal health and wellness rather than providing only treatment of disease.
