What is Ohashiatsu?

Ohashiatsu is a unique method of healing touch. It’s also a method of meditation, and a way to improve your own health. Different from shiatsu and acupressure, Ohashiatsu was initially developed to keep the “giver’s” body healthy. The relaxed state of the giver actually makes a session more effective and more comfortable for the receiver. Ohashiatsu combines hands-on touch techniques, limb rotation, and stretches, in a seamless flow of movement that leaves you both relaxed and energized.
