Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy

I have been doing Ashiatsu for 3 years. I was certified a year ago for the advanced bar therapy. I can also do this on Outcalls as well without the bars! I can do Ashiastu = Deep or a firm Swedish massage, Ashi-Thai = Stretching on the table with your Ashi session, Ashi-Stone = Hot Stone Ashiatsu, Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy is performed on a massage table. During treatment, the therapist, supported by parallel wooden bars suspended from the ceiling, applies deep foot pressure to strategic points along the spine and body to achieve maximum muscle compression. Ashiatsu's one and two-footed strokes distribute pressure evenly over a large area of the body, thereby providing deep, relaxing massage without the pain often associated with traditional deep tissue massage.

Fijian Massage

I have been incorporating Fijian massage into my Ashiatsu sessions for almost 2 yrs now. Fijian Massage manipulates tissue, helps in passive stretching and assess range of motion. Thus the principles of Trigger Point Therapy, Myofascial Release, and various Sports Massage and Deep Tissue and even cross-fiber friction techniques may be applied more effectively, producing more therapeutic progress and healing per session for the more sophisticated and demanding clients, such as professional dancers, and athletes.Fijian Massage does not include walking on the client's back as one foot remains standing on the floor. Fijian Massage is deeper and often more therapeutic than types of massage utilizing the hands .

Bamboo Massage

This is a new technique I just added to my modalities about 5 months ago. This luxurious treatment involves long, soothing rhythmic strokes and deep pressure application. The combination provides very deep relaxation while soothing away muscle tension and pain. Essential oil blends are added to this treatment to further enhance the benefits. This lavish full body treatment incorporates healing techniques of the Pacific Rim and Tibet and is performed entirely with heated bamboo & rattan tools.

Pedi Karma

I have been using this treatment for 2 years now. A Unique foot treatment that begins with a gentle filing of dry skin on the bottom of the feet, if needed, a balancing, aroma-therapeutic foot soak using Himalayan pink salt infused with essential oils of bay, eucalyptus and ginger. Then while laying on the table you will receive a rejuvenating marma point and reflexology massage using customized oil. Followed by a rare foot massage with a three-metal Kansa. Finally your feet are dusted with a scented herbal powder and wrapped in warm towels.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork, Spa, or Reflexology services

by Laura on Sep 25
Best massage I’ve ever had! She really understood my ailments and worked on those instead of just a normal boring massage.

I appreciated Ann's adherence to COVID protocol to ensure the safely of her clients. The deep tissue message was great. Worked out my knots and was super relaxing. Would definitely return.

A few years ago I tore my rotator cuff. Tried physical therapy, Cortizone shot. It helped but, short lived. Surgery was the only option left, and scar tissue was going to be my next dilemma. My wife suggested I go see Ann Farrel before I do the surgery. After several appointments with Ann, I have full range of movement with my shoulder and no pain, and it’s been 4 years. Being in construction I have chronic back issues. I always try Motrin and stretching which prolongs my decision to go see Ann. After a couple of days to a week of dealing with the pain, I make that appointment. She hasn’t let me down since. Thank You Ann.

Truly one of the best massage therapists I have ever had the blessing of experiencing. Not only did Anne find all my painful spots that needed attention, she stretched them out and helped me feel like I could improve my posture and that is RARE to find with touch! A true gift and intuitive healer- I will be back!

Ann has great hands and a great touch. Her studio is beautifully done. I've been a regular of hers for several years now. You'd know why after one experience on her table.

There is nothing to dislike about Ann or her services. Due to the CoronaVirus I had not had a massage for several months, and was suffering from pain in my left leg. After my massage, I felt no discomfort, and two days later I am still pain free, and able to walk better and get to sleep! Thank you, Ann!

Ann is amazing! She listens and works on specific needs. She always seems to find some spots that needed help that I didn't even know were so bad. I always leave feeling a million times better. My muscles are so tight coming in, and Ann knows how to work on releasing the knots. She is extremely knowledgeable and professional. I have been coming to her for years and will keep coming back!

Anne is very professional and offers many types of massage and other treatments. She took the time to explain the slimware process which looks amazing! Thank you for a great massage

Ann was skillful and professional - her technique is very original yet you still get everything you would expect and more. The shop front itself is a bit inconspicuous but the interior is clean, warm and comfortable. Definitely recommend.
