ido Holistic Center
Working within a clean, ozonated environment just off 5th Avenue in Midtown, the specialists at ido Holistic Center bolster patients' wellness with their house specialty treatment, Japanese shiatsu, as well as a one-of-a-kind herbal sauna. Also termed acupressure, traditional shiatsu massages apply manual pressure to key surface points tied to the central nervous system, fostering harmony within the body. Before each shiatsu treatment, therapists empirically examine patients’ appearances, odors, and bodily sounds for signs of disharmony, such as stomach gurgles that mimic blues guitar. Gentle Swedish and more intense deep-tissue massages complete the kneading offerings, which can soothe individuals or relax duos in couples rooms. Specialists can augment massages with treatments such as Japanese acupuncture, which uses finer and gentler needles than its mainstream Chinese cousin, and reiki, which aligns body and mind with healing energy. The onsite herbal sauna, perfumed by 15 Japanese herbs, glows with infrared light as it helps boost oxygen flow by dilating blood vessels.
