Welcome to MANA

Formerly known as Direct Effect; we are a holistic wellness center rooted in the balance of mind, body and spirit. Our mission is to educate and empower you to create healthy habits and live a purposeful life within a community of like minded people.


What is MANA?

it is defined as a life force energy that flows through all things, you have a chance to gain or lose MANA in everything you do.

Having meaningful work to do,
enjoying harmonious relationships with those around you, and being of service in some way all help to gather MANA
— Fundamentals of Hawaiian Mysticism,Charlotte Berney
