Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy  $85/hour, $125/90 minutes, $170/2 hours


A dance of healing on your back, Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy is deep compression effleurage delivered with the massage therapist's bare feet using overhead bars for balance and support.  The client rests comfortably on a standard massage table.  A modern refinement of ancient techniques, Ashiatsu provides the deepest, most luxurious massage on the planet without painful poking.  Especially effective for the lower back, spinal erectors, shoulders, glutes and hamstrings, this technique is shown to actually increase the intervertebral disc space resulting in fluidity of movement and pain relief.

Sacred Lomi: Open Heart Bodywork for Change

Faces of Sacred Lomi

Sacred Lomi $145
Sacred Lomi (lomi lomi) is a spiritually-oriented, heart-centered style of massage.  It invites transformation and healing.  Physically, it is quite different from Swedish massage, with longer, more flowing strokes.  It is often compared to the feeling of waves washing over you.
Lomi lomi is a healing art practiced by the native Hawaiians.  There are many unique forms, developed and passed down by family tradition.
Sacred Lomi derives from Hawaiian Temple Bodywork, and is a distinctive style practiced by Hawaiian kahunas (shamans) as a sacred rite of passage.  This work supports personal transformation, dying to the old and being born to the new.  It is not outcome-oriented nor directed toward particular bodily issues.  The receiver of Sacred Lomi may experience images and visions, a release of emotion, sleep or even nothing of particular note.  Most people experience the work as deeply relaxing.  Whatever you experience, trust that it is perfect for you at this time.  The work of Sacred Lomi continues to unfold long after the session is over.  
Because of the depth and intent of Sacred Lomi, it is recommended that you allow yourself some time to integrate after your session.  Ideally you will go home or to another quiet place, free of responsibilities for at least a few hours or the rest of the day.  Now is the time to relax, read inspiring material, journal, enjoy nature, sip water or juice, eat delicious healthy food, watch the world go by or just take a nap.
For a sacred lomi session we need:
  • At least 1 1/2 and possibly up to 2 hours
  • Willingness to get oily, even your hair
  • Willingness to receive massage with minimal draping and no breast cover when you are face up
  • Openness to the process and style, just allowing each session to be whatever it is for you
  • IF you shave, clean shaven
