Ashiatsu DeepFeet Therapy
Ashiatsu is a barefoot massage technique…as in my bare feet massage you! The first time I held those bars and used my feet to give the massage I knew this was meant for me! I can't wait for you to experience it!
If you crave deep tissue work, you'll love Ashiatsu DeepFeet Therapy! Inspired by Eastern massage techniques and adapted from ancient forms of barefoot massage, Ashiatsu ( Ashi = foot; atsu = pressure) is a highly effective treatment for those who suffer from chronic back pain. Because I am using the soft flat surfaces of the soles of my feet, this massage is less pinpoint invasive (and therefore less painful) than deep tissue massages given by hand. But don't be fooled, less discomfort does NOT mean I'm doing less for your muscles, it's quite the opposite actually. Your muscles will tighten up with pain as a reflex to try to protect themselves, without that pain from standard deep tissue your muscles will stay pliable and relaxed, allowing me to use my body weight to sink as deeply into the muscle as we need to to create release.
Although the roots of Ashiatsu came from the Far East, this American adaptation is truly a western phenomenon. The barefoot massage technique uses deep compression effleurage strokes that glide over the body. It uses the therapists body weight as the driving force for the massage, a force that simply can't be duplicated by hand. I use overhead parallel bars for support, balance and precise pressure. The bars allow me to make this massage as deep or as gentle as you need.
It's often called the deepest, most luxurious massage on the planet!
