Traditional Ashiastu

ashi = foot / shiatsu = pressure

This Chinese bodywork assesses the tendinomuscular of the body (muscles, tissues, and bones). Using the feet to apply pressure, the therapist is able to access pain or ashi, being released to the surface, thus resolving long standing pain that contributes to dis-ease of the body. Using Chinese meridian mapping, each section of the body correlates to its form and functions.  

The client is fully clothed and bars are used overhead, to allow the therapist to properly distribute weight. It is an unforgettable, deeply healing experience.

Chi Nei Tsang Duluth Minnesota

Chi Nei Tsang

releasing negative energy blockages

Chi Nei Tsang (CNT) is an ancient form of abdominal massage from China.  We also blend in Thai techniques to train the internal organs to work more efficiently, improving physical and emotional health.  

The client is fully clothed with only the abdomen exposed and the therapist uses lotion to work deeply on the organs of the belly.
