For Bethrenae Tribble, tending to sore muscles is a family business. She inherited her father’s natural talent for shoulder rubs, and found herself giving massages to her relatives and friends whenever she got the chance. They encouraged her to pursue certification and make a career out of this intuitive skill, and in 1995, she did just that. Today, Bethrenae continues to use the power of touch to relieve the pain and stress of all who lie on her treatment table. Her specialty is deep-tissue massage, a form of bodywork that focuses on buried knots and attempts to untangle them with focused pressure.
When Open Palm Shiatsu founder Asher Lyman isn't treating patients at his practice, he is often using shiatsu technique to comfort cancer patients at Amitabha Medical Clinic and Healing Center. Lyman learned the art of shiatsu massage under the direction of Ohashi, an early proponent of the practice in the United States. Using his fingers and open palms, Lyman sends purposeful pressure into the body to promote healing and restore energetic balances thrown off by roller-coaster rides. The treatment also encourages mental well-being.
