Ashiatsu Massage - Oriental Bar Therapy
*This service is done by Dayna Orton, LMT - Blooming Massage, Longmont, CO
What is Ashiatsu Massage and Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy?
(AOBT) Ashiatsu Massage is a barefoot massage technique using deep compression effleurage strokes that glide over the body. This creates a structural change in chronic soft tissue. Correct application will provide deep relaxation and stimulate the lymphatic system of the body. Ceiling bars are used to support and balance the therapist and lubricant is applied to the body. This work is known as "The Deepest, Most Luxurious Massage on the Planet" so I'm sure you will enjoy it.

What is the biggest difference between a Deep Tissue & Ashiatsu Massage?
The amount of even pressure that is applied to the body in barefoot massage can rarely be done by the hands. Since the foot is bigger, it covers more tissue, with the result that greater pressure can be applied without bruising the client, and can be held for an extended period of time, thus stimulating a larger area at one time and increasing a larger amount of circulation. Many clients swear they will never go back to traditional massage after experiencing Ashiatsu Massage.
Who will benefit from Ashiatsu Massage?
These techniques are ideal for those who desire a gratifying and results-driven treatment, those who have chronic lower and upper back pain, mild scoliosis or sciatica, physically fit individuals, larger clients, athletes, and those who can never get enough pressure in a massage . Clients seeking improved posture and movement, pain relief and a state of well being, should consider Ashiatsu. Ashiatsu massage also addresses tight or painful hamstrings, calf muscles, tight IT Bands, tight forearms and so much more! Clients with laminectomy, lordosis, kyphosis, fusion or rods can often benefit from a Barefoot Ashiatsu Massage Session.
It should be noted that this type of massage service is not for everyone.

"My massage was great!!! I have a stressful and physcial job that can get my muscles tied up. Other massages in the past have not given me relief, but the Ashiatsu does the trick. For the first time I actually feel relaxed after a massage, Thanks Dayna!!!" - Ryan F.
