Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy, also known as Ashiatsu Deep Tissue Massage (or barefoot massage), is one of the most luxurious and therapeutic forms of massage. Clients that prefer medium to deep pressure are perfect candidates for Ashiatsu Massage. Matter of fact, it has become our studio’s most popular modality as it combines the perfect amount of pressure and weight, while calming the mind with its balanced, broad, and rhythmic movements.
Ashiatsu massage is a blend of techniques from India and Japan. Ashi means ‘foot’ and atsu means ‘pressure’, thereby indicating the pressure created by the feet during massage. It increases athletic endurance, stamina, and performance. It improves circulation, blood flow, and one can experience significant reduction in stress levels, in addition to flexibility of joints. It also helps to heal wounds quicker, caused by work or sports, as well as long term chronic stress of the back, shoulders, hips, hamstrings, and other prime areas of the body.
