The Tao Ashi Bar which is a Signature Treatment is what I was invited to try. From the warm welcome to the consultation and to the choosing of oils, I was impressed by the staff’s friendliness. I chose the Camomile Oil which was very unique and unlike any I have experienced before.

I was shown around both the male and female areas which are separate and consist of a shower each. First is the foot reflexology area and then comes a corridor filled with massage rooms. Their rooms are extremely hygienic and you will slip into bliss form the minute you lie down on the bed.

Their signature treatment is comprised of Ashiatsu massage, which is an ancient art that originated in Asia and is based on a combination of Ayurvedic, Shiatsu and classic Thai massage. Parallel bars are suspended from the ceiling and used by the therapist for balance & control and the therapist uses a deep, painless form of barefoot massage where the therapist has the potential of applying their entire body weight which is very effective in treating lower and upper back pain.

My body filled with a lot of knots and muscle tension needed exactly this. My therapist was extremely skilled and if my body couldn’t take it because of the stiffness in certain areas, she would use her hands and give me a swedish massage. She was so good, that i almost drifted off to sleep πŸ™‚

The prices for the treatment are:

60 min 375 AED
90 min 440 AED

I enjoyed some Jasmine Tea after my massage which helped me relax further in their quiet surroundings.
