What is Ashiatsu??? (ah-she-aht-su).......It's not "back walking" really it is a graceful, modern version of an ancient form of massage meaning "foot pressure"
Ashiatsu Barefoot Bar Therapy
In Ashiatsu Barefoot Bar Therapy (barefoot massage with oil) the therapist uses the force of gravity and body weight to deliver deeper pressure using her clean, pedicured feet as you would use hands, while holding on to bars overhead for balance and support. The strokes are long ,smooth and flowing as with Swedish Massage. Using firm compression along with traction elongating the spine, easing pain due to spinal compression. This is also a great way to tame the thicker denser muscles in the back and shoulders that tend to require a deeper pressure. Elite Resort Spas around the world offer this specialty form of massage to their clients. Many who try it love it so much that afterwards they do not want anything else!!.....come in and see for yourself why we say Ahhhhh...shiatsu and why we believe when it comes to deep tissue barefoot is better!!!!
