Ashiatsu is a modality of bodywork that applies therapeutic pressure to promote health and well-being.  Ashiatsu literally means (ashi) foot (atsu) pressure in Japanese, the use of the elbows, palms, fingers and knees, where necessary, are also techniques that are utilized. Ashiatsu massages are done on the massage table. While holding on to sturdy overhead bars for balance, the therapist stands above you on the massage table and uses her feet to deliver the massage. The advantage of Ashiatsu is that it allows gravity to do the work, leveraging the therapist’s body weight to deliver the deepest massage available today. 

 

Questions arise concerning Ashiatsu.  What is it? Will you hurt my back with your weight? How can using your feet for massage be better than working with your hands?

 

First it is important to understand that your therapist has been fully certified in massaging with her feet – also called Ashiatsu. This training is necessary so as not to hurt you, but rather, to help aid in your relaxation, therapy and healing.

Through Ashiatsu, your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual awareness is heightened.  You will normally receive stretching and acupressure to help in relieving tension and stress throughout your body. It is very therapeutic and clients will feel a very deep work in their body. 

 

Through the use of specific acupressure, the body’s flow of energy is able to open and heal affected areas. The kneading motions that are also used help rid the body of unwanted and harmful toxins.
