.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" In Ashiatsu (Barefoot deep tissue with oil) the therapist uses her clean pedicured feet along with gravity to deliver a deeper pressure while holding onto bars anchored above the table for balance and control. The strokes are long and flowing so it can feel much like a deep Swedish massage however it is also a very effective form of deep tissue and wonderful for chronic pain due to imbalances or spinal compression.
Ashiatsu Barefoot Bar Therapy
In Ashiatsu we use the broad surface of the foot and 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!!!!
