ALOHA Inspiration Interview: A healer in my backyard, Auntie Fran

Since I can remember, I have been fascinated by the mystical and the magical. I gravitated to see my first psychic, Lan Vo, when I was in my early teens.

Today, wherever I go, I try to tap into the underground network of hidden healers and healing methods.Two years ago, I went to see right in my backyard at the Waikiki Health Center, a Native Hawaiian healer—Auntie Fran. On her door she has a cool wooden sign that says: Lomilomi, La’ua...
