Hawaiian Experience Spa is not a franchise. All spas are owned by the Ibachs. The founders, Steve and Cathy Ibach, have a deep connection with Hawaii and both studied Hawaiian lomi lomi on Maui. They spend a significant amount of time visiting the Hawaiian Islands and bring a genuine spirit of Aloha to the growing chain. Steve is a licensed massage therapist and still works in the Scottsdale spa as a therapist from time to time. Steve believes that this hands on provides him with a firsthand knowledge of the needs of their clients and gives the spa an edge that other spa chains lack. Mike Ibach is the Chief Operating Officer and oversees the spas on a day to day basis. He makes sure the spas run smoothly and that each client’s visit is perfect. Mike’s wife, Nikki Ibach, is a massage therapist and helps with special projects at the spas. The ali’i nui, or spa managers, report directly to Mike and are fully immersed in the spa’s culture of aloha. All the staff, or ‘ohana, are carefully chosen and must be passionate about what they do.

The Goodyear day spa is expected to open in early summer 2015. For more information please visit the spa’s website at
