The word KUA was created while Upuia was attending massage school in 2002, it’s a combination of her first, middle, and last names. Coincidentally, in the Samoan language (Upuia is of Samoan-Chinese heritage) Kua (or Tua) is described as “the Backbone” or alternatively as strength, foundation, courage, determination, steadfastness and fortitude.
