Plus....*Japanese Osteopathic approach(Ken Yamamoto Technique, etc...)
There are so many great Japanese osteopathic practitioners in Japan. Their pain approach is different to here in Australia. As I feel limited to treat only by remedial massage approach I combine with these great mentor's techniques. Their concept about pain causes by wrong positions with joints and bones by tight muscles, so it needs to bring back the body in anatomical good position. These techniques are some similar to Shiatsu techniques with stretching and mobilizations, it can be deep pressure to release these tight muscles.
It's a very effective technique to eliminate pain and restore motion.
Myofascial release is manual soft tissue manupulation technique for stretching the fascia. Fascia is located between the skin and the underlying structure of muscle and bone, it is a seamless web of connective tissue that covers and connects the muscles, organs, and skeletal structures in our body. Injuries, stress, trauma, and poor posture can cause restriction to fascia, and the goal of myofascial release is to unlock fascia restriction and restore its balance.
SLM bodywork (Myotherapy)
It works for pain and you feel balanced!
Its a unique form of muscle therapy that particularly works on rebalancing the bodys muscular system. SLM treats the whole body and focuses on treating the cause, not just the symptoms. It helps to activate the bodys own natural healing potential by stimulating the circulation and nerve response through out the whole body.
When it comes to the true therapeutic aromatherapy, quality does matter.
The inhaled aroma from essential oil which extract from plants is widely believed to stimulate brain function. Essential oils can also be adsorbed through the skin, where they travel through the bloodstream and can promote whole-body healing.
It is used for a variety of applications, including pain relief, mood enhancement and increased cognitive function.
Aromatherapy massage is using essential oils individually blended to your needs, are applied to your body and face by a sequence of massage techniques. Nurturing and deeply relaxing, the combination of therapeutic touch and aromas can be powerfully effective to enhance psycological and physical well-being.
Asako uses the high quality standards of therapeutic essential oil products Essential Therapeutics which has developed the Therapeutic Grade Essential Oil Guarantee(T.G.E.O).
The T.G.E.O Guarantee means:
- 100% Pure No additions or blending

Ka Huna massage
A holistic approach to rejuvenation and healing for body, mind & soul

This beautiful form of bodywork provides a holistic approach to healing by balancing the body-mind in physical, emotional and spiritual dimensions. The practitioner uses their hands, forearms and elbows and moves around the table (using flowing Hula and Tai Chi style movements) They work with energy to apply soft and deep tissue massage.

The lymphatic system is a vital part of our bodys healing, cleansing and regenerative process. It is required to stimulate the lymph flow and assist in the removal of waste & toxins from the body. It stimulates in between skin and muscle so it's not like normal massage and working on abdominal is essential.
Healing through touch by oriental concept of energy
Literally means finger pressure. Its originally coming from Japan an focuses on specific pressure points, meridians (energy channels throughout body) and using some streching to encourage your bodys meridians to flow more freely. Helps release energy blocks, enabling your body to heal itself naturally and for wellbeing.

It's subtle energy healing but you can feel deeply relaxing.
Reiki is a natural and simple healing method which lays the hands gently on the body. This allows you to absorb more life force energy referred to as chi or ki. It vitalizes your life force and balances the energies in your body.
Usui Reiki is traditional Reiki healing system. Karuna Reiki has developed by a Reiki master through channeling. It's more powerful healing energy and goes in to much deeper level. Asako combines these two Reiki together to enhance more healing.
Quantum-Touch is based on the fundamental principles of quantum (or energy) physics
All matter, living and non-living, is made up of energy including every cell in your body. Quantum-Touch works on changing the rate at which your energy is vibrating in order to allow your body to heal itself.
When a Quantum-Touch practitioner raises their life-force energy (also referred to as chi or prana) and holds it around an affected area, the patient naturally matches the vibration of the practitioner, allowing the patients own biological intelligence to do whatever healing their body needs.
Reiki practitioners speak of Quantum-Touch as being like a super-charged Reiki.
Indian head massage
For those people who are stressed out and too much thinking
This technique focuses on the upper back, shoulders, neck, face and head. It helps with the elimination of toxins, relaxes scalp and promotes blood flow which assists in promoting hair growth through stimulation. It's relaxing, soothing and also helping to improve flow of the cerebral-spinal fluid around the brain and spinal cord thus giving you clear thinking and a sense of focus.
Traditionally it uses sesame oil or I can use organic coconuts oil to nourish hair but if you avoid oily messy hair you can use flower water or none. Ask Asako!
Aromatherapy through feet is simple but powerful!
The sole of the feet contain thousands of nerve endings that connect all organs, glands and system of the body. Thus essential oils go through feet which is very powerful. This style of reflexology is aim to be relaxed, releases stress and tension with using essential oils which your needs.
To start with feet massage I will soak your feet with warm herbal tea foot bath...hmm yummy!
