In the Japanese language, “Ashi” translates to foot and “Atsu” into pressure. Ashiatsu is a barefoot massage technique in which the therapist delivers deep, broad, and consistent pressure while utilizing their feet and body weight. 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. Our therapists are Certified in “Deep Feet” Ashiatsu.
Ashi-Thai is an expression of traditional Thai stretches that have been modified utilizing the overhead bar system and therapists’ body so no heavy lifting or bending occurs at the waist. This flowing and rhythmic approach to Thai massage is done on the massage table in stretchable exercise clothes such as Spandex by the receiver and the therapist. This barefoot massage technique uses deep compression effleurage strokes that glide over the body & the resulting movement may help relieve pain.
This therapy will soften tight muscles and therapeutic attachments, loosen adhesions and lift connective tissue, bring hydration and blood flow to body tissues, and drain excess fluids and toxins by opening lymphatic pathways.
