Independent Licensed Massage Therapist and Esthetician.
Skin Care & Massage Therapy
~Ashiatsu is a unique style of massage therapy in which the therapists ‘walks’ on the client’s back, using gravity and their bare feet instead as well as their hands to apply pressure.
~Ashiatsu is perfect for the person who may suffer from chronic back pain, scoliosis, or for those who love deep work, but just cannot seem to find a therapist that can deliver. This work is available to people of large and small stature. Every massage is adjusted to the wants and needs of each individual client. You are always in total control of the amount of pressure that I use.
~Benefits of Ashiatsu Massage: Deep relaxation
Relieve tight muscles
Stimulate the body’s own self-healing capabilities
It is also useful as a sports preparation or athletic maintenance, as the elements of stretching and engaging the large muscle groups are incorporated. It is a great way to quickly warm up the large muscles for more detailed therapy, especially on people who are very muscular, although there are no restrictions on body types who can receive Ashiatsu, due to the therapist having control of weight distribution.
Ashiatsu can be a deep tissue massage that feels like a “good workout” to some, leaving them refreshed and relaxed rather than tired, or a rhythmic relaxation massage. Ideally, an Ashiatsu massage would be 60+ minutes to allow the therapist time to work thoroughly both the large muscle groups with the feet, and the smaller muscle groups with the hands if needed.
