Have you noticed how friendly and relaxed the locals of Maui seem to be? Our secret isn’t hard to discover. It’s difficult to feel stressed when you are surrounded by warm sunshine, a gentle breeze, and the glorious ocean all day long. Also, we’ve learned to operate on “Island Time,” which means we’d rather say hello to our neighbors or finish our chat with the waitress at the café rather than stuff as many activities as possible into our schedule.

Here’s another big secret to our happy outlooks: Maui is filled with amazing holistic spas. These wellness centers offer all sorts of delightful services that will make your stress ooze away, including acupuncture, facials, body treatments, and massages.

If the sun, sand, and water aren’t enough to melt your tension, then call in the big guns. Book yourself a massage to loosen knots, flush toxins, and boost your immune system. Here are five of our favorite places to get a great massage in Maui:
