Ashiatsu Massage

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.  There are some contraindications to remember and these are as follows:

If any of the above information relates to you I would be happy to provide you with a therapeutic massage in place of the Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy Session. Every person and every case is different so we can discuss it further.

Ashiatsu is a form of barefoot massage that allows the therapist to use deep tissue/ compression strokes to glide over the body. Ashiatsu therapists are able to deliver continuous deep pressure strokes that cover larger areas of the body. Bars are used above the table for support and balance. By receiving gentle but deep foot compression and slow Swedish strokes, you will understand why this is called the deepest, most luxurious form of massage. Lotion used for all massages are paraben-free, certified organic and unscented.

Great massage and wonderful massage therapists! I have gone to both Diana and Donna and they are both wonderful massage therapists. I have chronic neck and shoulder pain and I have been starting to feel relief after just a few visits. I also love how easy and convenient it is to book appointments on-line.

I’ve had two massages with Dayna and she is very caring and does wonderful massages! Super helpful with addressing my issues with neck pain and giving good suggestions and advice for things that might provide relief outside of the massage hour with her. I like the pressure and she’s good at communicating to understand what I’m looking for. Thanks so much!
