What is Ashiatsu Barefoot Massage?
In the Japanese language “Ashi” means foot and “Atsu” means pressure . It is a barefoot massage technique in which a therapist uses supportive bars for support & balance to apply deep, broad, consistent pressure utilizing their feet and body weight by using mainly bare feets. Its roots dating back thousands of years across Asia, India, Africa & the Pacific Rim cultures.
What are the benefits?
Deep Tissue Without Discomfort
Alternative to discomfort that accompanies with pointy elbows and thumbs, Ashiatsu barefoot massage is the treatment to go for. Utilizing gravity enables Ashiatsu therapists to deliver up to three times deeper pressure than traditional treatments. Applying the broad surface of the foot allows consistent pressure which contours nicely to the body. As a result, the same extra range of movement can be applied and chronic tension is relieved without enduring painful strokes.
Deeper Compression With Deep Result
As pressure is applied more broadly and more forcefully that aids in the movements of the feet along the para spinals and the lumbar region. This will in turn relieve muscle spasms and open the intervertebral foramen where spinal nerves pass through. This will expand more space for the nerves as well as improving fresh oxygenated blood circulation to the area being treated.
Elongates Muscles and Detoxifies
Many similar Swedish styles with deep compression effleurage & long flowing movements that glide over the body to elongate the spine, stretch shortened muscles. These long fluid effleurage strokes also benefit in flushing the body’s lymphatic system and releases metabolic waste at a higher rate.
Longer Result With Deeper Pressure
Ashiatsu works further into the fascia in a slower and more forceful manner without breaking blood vessels because of broad compression. Also, it throws myofascial stretching into the mix. As a result, effects last longer and clients do not experience the pain as when having traditional or deep tissue massages.
Why get an Ashiatsu Barefoot Massage?
This massage is especially for those who never feel enough pressure with regular massage. Ashiatsu offers a unique experience as the therapist stands straight up, combining gravity, and swiftly coordinating the thigh, knee, and leg to work up the lumbar and the erectors, that can feel like a beautiful six-hand massage.
