Ohashi Method®

The  crème de la crème of all bodywork, the Ohashi Method is based on ancient Asian healing techniques. Oriental diagnosis tailors the session to your needs.  Deep, but gentle pressure along the acupuncture meridians, along with gentle stretches and limb rotations relieves stress, allows freedom of movement and eases aches and pains. Relaxes and rejuvenates the body, mind and spirit. Especially effective for shoulders, hips, back and necks.

Age-old technique stimulates the body's healing process. Specific areas on the feet are kneaded to  release tension throughout the body and influence natural flow of energy. Relaxes, improves blood flow,             eases symptoms associated with chemotherapy.


Warm Bamboo Massage

Gently heated pieces of smooth bamboo are used to knead tight muscles and roll out tension for a deep tissue or relaxing massage. Soothing heat penetrates the muscles, triggering the body’s automatic relaxation response. Muscles get looser, joints become more flexible and an amazing sense of well-being washes over you.

We carry a lot of stress in our face, hands and feet.  Delicate sections of bamboo are                       heated and the warmth and flowing strokes on the face roll out tension.  Deeper work                            is applied to the hands and feet. Bamboo has a luxurious feeling and you may feel                             energized and revitalized, but also relaxed.  Because the matrix of bamboo is similar                        to our own connective tissue, skin may appear more supple.
