Ashiatsu is a form of barefoot massage where the therapist uses their feet to provide a deep, luxurious pain-free massage. Dating as far back as the 12th century, Ashiatsu originates from Asia and India. It is wonderful for athletes or clients with stressful lives. Ashiatsu massage is unique in its ability to maintain constant, even pressure to the entire body. It provides clients with deep pressure without the bruising or residual soreness associated with some deep tissue techniques. Deeply relaxing, Ashiatsu provides longer-lasting effects with increased postural alignment and increased circulation.
Due to the pressure associated with Ashiatsu, please discuss your complete health history with your therapist. We advise against Ashiatsu for clients with the acute conditions of diabetes & osteoporosis, children or pregnant women. During Ashiatsu, the therapist does not walk on the body. Ashiatsu is one of the preferred treatments chosen by clients with Fibromyalgia because of the broad pressure associated with the feet.
We have several therapists at Hands In Harmony who are trained and certified in Ashiatsu. It is priced as a combo massage service.
