Shiatsu Massage

Shiatsu is a Japanese style of massage that combines an understanding of the Chinese acupuncture points with traditional Japanese massage techniques—where acupuncturists use needles, shiatsu practitioners use finger pressure. Shiatsu is a combination of pressure point release, deep massage and stretches. The receiver lays in comfortable clothing on a shiatsu futon. Treatments last one hour. Suitable for pregnancy. Shiatsu eases aching muscles, increases vitality and relieves fatigue. It is the perfect complement to your stay at a traditional Japanese inn.
Duration: 60 minutes.
Price: $130

Reflexology

Reflexology is a simple and effective form of non-invasive healing. It is based on the idea that reflex points on the feet, hands and ears correspond with parts of the body, and by stimulating these points there will be a direct effect upon the corresponding area. Reflexologists are trained to identify imbalances in the body and aim to bring the body back into balance. Reflexology is beneficial for muscular, skeletal, digestive, reproductive and respiratory conditions, as well as stress.
Duration: 60 minutes.
