What is Ashiatsu Massage?
Ashiatsu is a barefoot massage technique in which the therapist delivers deep, broad, consistent pressure while utilizing their feet and body weight. Parallel bars are used above the massage table for balance, support and client safety.
Working with gravity instead of against it, Ashiatsu therapists are able to provide an effective therapeutic massage without causing pain or discomfort to themselves or the receiving client.
Is Ashiatsu for you?
Ashiatsu massage is wonderful for those who like a heavy, deep pressure massage. Clients who have large frames, dense muscle tissue and chronic pain can benefit from this deep tissue massage, famous for back and hip pain relief, and deep relaxation. Ashiatsu is particularly popular among athletes, making it a great pre or post-event massage.
Please note that Ashiatsu is not suitable for everyone:
It is not recommended during the 1st trimester of pregnancy, or within 6 weeks of any surgery. Please discuss with your massage therapist any potential health concerns before trying Ashiatsu.
