If you were at ICES in Philly or Dallas this year, you probably saw some of our instructors, Kate and Charlene, promoting BonVital, Performance Health and how their products work so well with Ashiatsu and Ashi-Thai.
We love to use their Foot Balm during Ashi-Thai when we focus on the clients feet – it gives great traction for us, and a lovely tingle for them. During the Ashiatsu massages that glide on the skin, we’ve found that a small mix of the Fractionated Coconut Oil added to the Therapeutic Touch Creme make for a great medium to engage tissue while still maintaining an even paced and pressured slide from our feet. The Muscle Therapy creme has the same traction as the Therapeutic Touch line, but has the added benefits of Peppermint, Eucalyptus, Rosemary, and Arnica in it! For years we’ve been adding a small drop of Prossage oil onto the small of the back when we do our warming strokes before moving deeper-deeper-deeper into the two footed Advanced Ashiatsu moves, and we close the session with a nice topical spritz of BioFreeze to the neck, especially at events, to help ease the stiff and achey, cranky joints.
They have even more goodies – like the Waterless Hand Cleanser that was handy for us to clean our feet and hands off with – but also the clients before starting each session.
