Massage

Shiatsu massage is an old healing process that uses thumb and hand pressure on certain points called “Tsubo” (vital points). Muscle tension in your upper and lower back is caused by an accumulation of lactic acid and carbon dioxide gas, which makes the muscles contract and causes fatigue. Shiatsu will help relieve muscle tension, increase your circulation, and eliminate the toxins from your body.  Choose your focus; upper back tension relief, lower back, neck and scalp massage or foot care.

Costs for Y Members:

  • 10 minute shiatsu:   $10
  • 15 minute shiatsu:  $15
  • 30 minute shiatsu:  $30
  • Foot Care for 30 minutes:  $30
