I have thrived on Abby's ashiatsu and therapeutic massage for more than 5 years now, on a regular schedule of between 2 and 4 times a month. What I really appreciate about ashiatsu is the broad stroke technique that using the feet allows. The very first time I tried ashiatsu I was absolutely amazed at how thorough and integrated the treatment left me feeling. It's also worth pointing out the added attention by hand of the feet arms, shoulders, neck and head that round out the complete treatment. I always do 1.5 hours. I have been a regular massage recipient for over 20 years and have tried treatments and therapists everywhere from Australia to Indonesia, South America, Europe and Mexico, along with more than half a dozen therapists here in Hawaii. I think it says a lot that I haven't deviated from Abby and her treatments since first discovering her. Aloha.
I am a very healthy 69 years old female. Massage therapy for years has been a major component of my personal approach to health maintenance. Abby's sensitivity and understanding of how body systems function inform her massage techniques. Her session begins with questions relating to the current body problems followed by a massage addressing any troubling issues. Be it the overworked shoulder, leg pains or lower back trouble, I notice her competent attention during the treatment to those areas. Her educated hands and experienced feet with the ashitsu method fit in perfectly with my belief in a holistic approach to well being. With her massage, I plan to soon become avery healthy 70 year old, the 80 year old and so on.
I have been getting massages for the last 15 years all over the world. I have never had a massage quite like the one I received from Abby. To put it plainly it was magical. I enjoyed every part of the massage. I felt rejuvenated and completely relaxed. It was amazing to me to experience how far superior a massage could be when done with the feet. WOW!!! I will never go to the north shore without contacting Abby. I cant wait to get another massage.
It has been a privilege to receive Abby's massages during the last three years. Her ability to listen and identify areas that need attention is quite remarkable. She is very intuitive and caring in her approach. Ashiatsu was new to me, but without a doubt is now my preferred technique. Thank you Abby for keeping me healthy! > Rick L.
