It was developed over 35 years by Wataru Ohashi, a Japanese shiatsu master based in New York, who apparently has a loyal roster of famous clients.
His roster of clients for ohashiatsu include Liza Minnelli, George Balanchine, Stan Getz, Ralph Lauren, Muhammad Ali and Henry Kissenger.
BENEFITS OF OHASHIATSU
Well, I have to say that it was unlike any other massage I had ever had before.
It’s bodywork taken to the next level, with the following additional benefits:
– Increased endurance and flexibility – Strength-building and posture-building, similar to Pilates – Revitalization – Release of stress
Ohashiatsu involves a lot of stretching and rotation of limbs to activate energy points and loosen up joints.
“The key to happiness is to know your weaknesses, know your strengths, and live accordingly. Through self knowledge, you discover where your talents lie and those things that do not support your life. Once you make those discoveries, you are enlightened. All there is left to do is to live a happy life.”
– Wataru Ohashi
My session was done by Fahdel, the spa master, and he was excellent.
He was highly recommended by the hotel management.
I ended my session completely relaxed and rejuvenated, and ready to begin my next adventure in my never-ending, and never-endingly eventful Travelife.
