Discover Your State of Nirvana with Ashiatsu
Relax with Therapy that Defies Gravity
Alleviate Pain with Ashiatsu
Ashiatsu is a painless barefoot massage that uses deep strokes from the massage therapist’s feet. It releases trigger points and connective tissues to relieve muscle tension and increase deep relaxation.
Relieve Tension and Increase Relaxation
With roots in Asia and India, Ashiatsu massage therapy is a barefoot massage technique that has been performed for thousands of years.
Unlike a traditional deep tissue massage, an Ashiatsu massage adds pressure and compression to manipulate deep layers of tissue, enhance circulation, and decrease inflammation.
During an Ashiatsu massage session, a therapist performs the treatment with his or her feet and holds onto overhead bars for balance. As they glide across your body, they deliver deep, broad pressure with their feet and body weight.
By working with gravity, Ashiatsu therapists provide an effective therapeutic massage without causing pain or discomfort to your body. They can also apply more pressure than possible with only their hands.
The Benefits of an Ashiatsu Massage
Ashiatsu is suitable for people of all ages, including athletes suffering from sprains, joint pain, or other injuries. As a form of sports therapy, Ashiatsu massage enhances athletic performance, breaks down scar tissue, and detoxifies muscles.
Ashiatsu therapy is an effective way to reduce chronic pain, break down knots of tissue, improve flexibility, and reduce stress. It also alleviates back and hip pain, and results in deep relaxation.
How Does It Work?
During your Ashiatsu massage, the therapist positions themselves above you while holding onto parallel bars or ropes attached to the ceiling. You will lie face down on a mattress or table.
Using the bars for balance, the therapist uses their feet to combat deep tension in your muscles. They will also distribute their body weight around your body to deliver a painless, strong pressure.
The therapist will then glide across your body and vary their movements to accommodate your needs. When they apply pressure with their feet, they will flatten and elongate your muscles to relieve tension.
Ashiatsu is available in 60- and 90-minute sessions. All clients receive a complimentary Mother Earth Hot Pillow and aromatherapy. They can also add whipped magnesium cream to their treatment.
