Ashiatsu massage, also known as “barefoot massage” is a unique and deeply relaxing massage therapy technique that offers a truly relaxing and therapeutic experience. The term “Ashiatsu” is derived from the two Japanese words: “ashi” which means foot, and “atsu”, which means pressure. The therapist uses overhead bars for balance and support, allowing them to control the pressure and movements with precision. Using their feet, they glide and compress over your muscles, releasing tension and promoting deep muscle relaxation. The therapists feet cover a much larger surface area, making it possible to access deep layers of muscle tissue that my be challenging to reach with traditional massage techniques. Our highly skilled massage therapists use their feet to deliver a deep and luxurious massage that combines deep tissue, myofascial, and traditional Asian techniques.
