What is Ashiatsu?
Ashiatsu (ashi = foot, atsu= pressure) is an adaptation of an ancient Japanese form of barefoot massage. Bars are used overhead and used for balance and control. The therapist uses her soft, clean feet to apply deep compression massage and long, gliding strokes over the back of the clients body. Lotion is also applied resulting in a deep luxurious, Swedish-style massage.
Ashiatsu is an effective treatment for suffers of chronic low back pain and neck pain.
This treatment is guaranteed to induce deep relaxation, relieve tight muscles, and stimulate the body’s own self-healing capabilities.
Massage is a key ingredient in any complete workout program- massage speeds muscle recovery, increases endurance, and enhances athletic performance.
Whether your a weekend warrior, or a marathon runner, a regular massage routine can help you reach and maintain your fitness goals.
