Karma Skin + Massage Studio - New! Ashiatsu!
Sandy spent some time in Florida training with Pilar Hook of Synergie Studios to learn Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy. This is a massage where the therapist uses bars mounted in the ceiling for balance while using foot pressure on the client.  Sandy had several of these treatments herself while in Florida and says it was by far the best and most effective massage she has EVER had!  This is great for people who like a medium to deeper pressure massage but without the pain. The feet allow for a broader pressure that helps relax the muscle without harming the tissue.
Regular Price $80/hr INTRO PRICE $65 limited time only!
You can book Ashiatsu online!
