Ashiatsu Massage

Getting its name from the Japanese words "ashi" (foot) and "atsu" (pressure), Ashiatsu massage is an ancient type of Asian bodywork that is done with the massage therapist's feet. This method of deep tissue barefoot Swedish massage uses an overhead support system: the massage therapist holds onto parallel bars that hang from the ceiling, allowing gravity - and the therapist's body weight - to penetrate below the client's superficial layers of tissue, delivering an extra deep massage. The use of the therapist's feet delivers continuous deep tissue pressure and covers much larger areas at one time verse the use of hands. Ashiatsu massage is much deeper than the common Swedish massage and even deeper than a deep tissue massage.
