Krista Dawn was born in Chatham, Ontario, Canada.  She was intrigued by her grandfather's ability to heal people with the use of prayer.  This is what first inspired her to heal people. She also had a strong connection to plants from a young age and was always fascinated by energy and healing.  Her love of the ocean and sun brought her to Maui in 2002 and she has been a resident ever since.  She currently practices at three locations - at her own, new spa; Island Alchemy Spa in Paia, at Green Ti in Wailuku and The North Shore Chiropractic and Massage in Paia.
