The word Nalu means 'wave' in Hawaiian.
At the heart of our wellness sanctuary lies a name deeply rooted in Hawaiian culture – 'Nalu'.
Tiffany, (owner & founder - goes by her Hawaiian name, Nalu) was blessed with this name by her Kumu growing up dancing Hula on the island of Oahu. In the Hawaiian language, 'Nalu' is more than just a word; it encapsulates the ebb and flow of life, mirroring the rhythmic patterns of the ocean's waves. 'Nalu' embodies fluidity, movement, and harmony. Not merely a physical movement, but a guiding philosophy.
To ‘Nalu-it’ means to go with the flow. When you learn how to swim in the ocean, you learn not to fight the waves. You flow with them, swim under them, and play with them. “You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf”.
It embodies the wisdom of navigating life's ebbs and flows, resonating deeply with our approach to holistic wellness.
'Nalu' invites us to Imagine that you are sitting on the ocean floor, rooted in the serenity, stillness & quiet of the deep.
There may be a hurricane hitting the surface, creating crashing waves & chaos, but because you are rooted deep in the stillness, what happens on the surface doesn’t affect your sense of security. It still affects you, and the destruction may seem unbearable, but you know it is temporary & it will pass.
It doesn’t matter what’s happening on the surface if your root foundation is strong. Nothing can shake your core because deep in the stillness you are safe.
This is a metaphorical representation of finding inner calm amidst life's currents, learning to navigate challenges by finding & strengthening our own inner peace.
It also represents getting to the root of an ailment in order for the surface symptoms to dissipate.
At Nalu Healing Arts, 'Nalu' serves as a guiding principle, urging us to harmonize mind, body, and spirit. Our sanctuary provides a haven for individuals seeking balance, just as the ocean floor offers a serene respite from the waves above.
Embrace the teachings of 'Nalu' – flow with life's currents, ride the waves, and find balance in the dance of existence.
We invite you to explore 'Nalu' with us, as together, we learn to surf life's beautiful, undulating waves.
