Developed in Japan and based on Chinese medical principles, shiatsu treats fully clothed clients with a sequence of rocking, direct pressure, vibration, percussion, and kneading. The therapist strives to reach every part of the body—from the crown of the head to the soles of the feet—with firm pressure and creative angles, often even climbing on the table to target specific areas.
As a teenager, Brad Hogle suffered from many health problems—from pounding headaches and chronic vertigo to weak ligaments, he was rarely comfortable. After visiting numerous doctors' offices and seeing little improvement, his lifelong interest in martial arts led him to research Eastern therapies. With this knowledge, he developed a set of daily stretches and exercises that helped him overcome his ailments. A new believer in the potency of alternative healing practices, Brad then went on to become a licensed massage therapist and open Vibe Shiatsu in 2011.
All of his treatments begin with an assessment that involves closely examining each client. By noticing the way a person breathes, as well as their arm, leg and spine movements, Hogle is able to predict the best way to release large amounts of tension. Alternatively, an assessment may also show him where to direct his focus, so that he may help heal an overlooked area. To complement Hogle's massage therapy, Vibe Shiatsu's decor exudes a professional-yet-peaceful aura, where sleek off-white walls bear photography by one of Brad's friends and finger paintings by big-name CEOs.
