Spas Are In Season

Here’s a new wide-model spa that we installed near Scappoose, Oregon lately.

This one was installed on Bull Mountain in Tigard

The buyers wanted a custom color scheme with a black cover. Putting the heater cabinet in the flower bed left more room on the patio for seating.

Ashiyu has moved to Northwest Portland

Our new foot spa in Northwest Portland is now open at 2113 NW Northrup St. The new location offers a spacious and secluded soaking room, a serene reflexology treatment room, and a new home for the infrared sauna, jade roller massage bed, whole body vibration machine and more. Ionized alkaline water is sold by the gallon and soon a newly landscaped outdoor event space will be ready for parties and open-air soaking this summer.

Carolyn, John and Rebecca hope you will stop in for a visit and a soak. Parking is about the same here as in Sellwood (not the easiest but do-able). Usually there are spaces a block or two north of Ashiyu on Overton or Pettygrove Streets. Or take the street car, the tracks pass right in front and the stop is mere steps away!

Ashiyu Foot Spa

Ashiyu NW is open Monday through Saturday from 11am to 7pm, and on Sunday by appointment. The phone number is still 503-232-0920. The prices have not changed from our Sellwood days.

By the way, the original Ashiyu location in Sellwood was purchased by Sean, one of the newer reflexologists, who renamed it Feel Good Feet and is focusing on the core business of soaking and reflexology, and selling ionized alkaline water. Their new phone number is 503-505-4640.

Proton Water is Amazing!

The Athena Ionizer makes both alkaline water and proton-rich acid water. While the ionized alkaline water is a terrific way to hydrate the inner body, ionized ACID water is a powerful rejuvenator of the outer body. Skin, hair and nails get an extra strengthening boost from the positive charge in the water, and the astringent action of the water gently but thoroughly washes oils away.

  • Wash your hair with proton water for more body and shine, while cleaning the hair without any impact on the environment.
  • Treat skin conditions like acne and ecxema gently and effectively. Proton water is prescribed and widely used in Japan and other countries to treat dermatitis and psoriasis.
  • Soak your fingers and toes in proton water to drive away nail fungus. The results will amaze you!

Bring an extra bottle when you come in for alkaline water and join our proton water study. Get a free quart of proton water, and give us your email address. We will send a survey asking what proton water has done for you.

Whole Body Vibration Benefits

If you haven’t tried our whole body vibration (WBV) platform yet, here’s some information which might tempt you to ask for a sample session. Research results are verifying WBV health benefits that are comparable and even superior to many forms of exercise.  Here are some of the ways WBV is being used:

  • to enhance weight loss and calorie consumption
  • to increase muscle strength, endurance, and dexterity training
  • to diminish atrophy in muscles affected by movement disorders due to paralysis, injury, stroke, and diseases such as multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, and Parkinson’s
  • to boost bone density
  • to activate and increase lymphatic circulation
  • to decrease joint pain
  • to diminish the appearance of cellulite in the skin
  • to decrease cortisol, the stress hormone
  • to increase serotonin, the mood boosting hormone

Regular whole body vibration sessions are 10 minutes and cost $5 or buy a package of 5 sessions for $20.

Spa Season Begins!

The first sunny day of spring brings us our latest installation. The wide model cabinet is topped with marble. The deck looks out on a wilderness area. Is that a firepit in the background? They won’t be needing that anymore…
