ASHIYU JAPANESE FOOT SPA
The Ashiyu foot spa provides a deeply relaxing experience using the principles of hydrotherapy in a very simple and inexpensive form.
Soaking the feet in warm water draws the blood downward. Almost immediately, the busy mind experiences a break. Shifting the blood calms the nervous system, allowing the body a greater ability to restore itself.
A visit to the foot spa is a great way to end a stressful day, relax before appointments with any of our skilled practitioners or just as an addition to positive self-care. Schedule a time alone or with friends to support health today!

Far-infrared rays penetrate the skin to encourage sweating from deep within the body’s primary waste deposition site, the subcutaneous fat! Known to increase detoxification and remove toxins from the body up to 7 times more efficiently than the more common dry heat sauna with less stress to the body’s vital organs.
Here are 7 reasons to begin using an infrared sauna on a routine basis:
1. Support Immune Function
4. Pain Relief
5. Lower Blood Pressure
6. Improved Circulation
7. Skin Purification
8. Weight Loss
In accordance with traditional hydrotherapy practices, we encourage all sauna users to alternate the heat of the sauna with the cool of the shower. Our sauna room includes a shower so you can gradually or dramatically cool your body to encourage the warmed blood to move deep into your core organs.
This facilitates far greater benefits and a more comfortable experience.
