Jonathan Cobb, LMT
A lifelong learner, Jonathan was brought into the massage world by invitation from an accomplished Thai Yoga therapist. He received his certification in 2019 from Golden Lotus Massage Studio in Kapaa, Hawaii, and is practiced in many modalities.
Every client has different needs, so Jonathan intuitively blends his knowledge of multiple Lomi Lomi styles, Swedish massage, deep tissue work, and Thai Yoga therapy to create a deep healing experience in each session.
Outside of the massage studio, Jonathan also works as a kayak guide on the Wailua River, Kauai's traditional spiritual center. His love for the Wailua area (from which Two Waters derives its name) is what has kept him rooted on the little island of Kauai for the last seven years. Every journey up the Wailua river is a sacred pilgrimage —just as, potentially, every massage session is a deep journey in healing.
During his free time, Jonathan enjoys staying active, including weightlifting, hiking, and flowing with the rhythms of the island to find the perfect moments of beauty that Kauai has to offer. If you book with Jonathan, perhaps one of those perfect moments of beauty will be shared together in the massage studio!
Jonathan was amazing. So relaxing, made sure you were comfortable the whole time! Great experience!

He was able to learn several different modalities and has now integrated his favorite components into his own signature massage blend with aspects of swedish, lomi lomi, thai, and reflexology. He has a particular fondness of Hawaiian lomi lomi, which he received additional training for at the #1 spa in Maui, Ho’omana.
In his free time, Javier enjoys hiking the beautiful trails throughout the island, especially the mighty Kalalau trail, on the Napali coast.
