Keola Wellness was founded in 2015 with a clear mission – to help integrate massage into urban lifestyles for health promotion.
Massage is a safe, economical, underutilized & underrated tool that can help the body – mind connection, relieve physical & emotional stress; and reduce the build-up & impact of lifestyle induced chronic diseases. Massage can be integrated into primal (pre-natal/ infants) & primary preventive healthcare therapy .
Keola promotes integration of massage therapies into daily lives and preventive healthcare.
We do so by creating awareness about the benefits, providing quality education & services, and advocating standardization, certification & regulation in the field of massage to ensure that therapists & providers have the mastery of core skills & knowledge, and adhere to code of ethics and best practices.
Keola Wellness was founded by Jyoti Devjani, a professional with 25+ years of diverse experience in the health and wellness industry.
She started her early career in the cosmeceutical & dermatological industry, promoting the benefits of baby massage and launching one of India’s most successful baby massage & post-natal massage oils & range of products.
Her experience includes setting up one of India’s first day spas, launching Western Australia’s premier aromatherapy cosmetics company, consulting and managing hotel spas for some of the world leading hospitality chains including the Ritz Carlton & Oberoi group, in the US and India. In addition, Jyoti has worked with numerous spas and medical professionals to help them incorporate natural therapies & enhance their wellness offerings and realize their revenue goals.
She continues to research the benefits of natural formulations and essential oils and promote the benefits of massage therapy. She is internationally trained and certified in a number of alternate therapy fields including massage therapy (in a multitude of modalities, including infant, pediatric, pre-natal), aroma therapy & spa & hotel spa management.
