What is Ashiatsu?

Ashiatsu deep feet bar Therpay is a barefoot massage technique using deep strokes from the massage therapists' feet. This treatment is highly efffective for those who suffer from chronic neck and back pain or spinal issues, as well as for athletes or for those who enjoy deep tissue massage. It combines elements of Thai Massage, Japanese Shiatsu, and India's Keralite Massage with underlying dynamics in the study of Traditional Chinese Medicine.  There are several advantages to a barefoot massage including: being able to warm up muscles fasters due to the feets' larger surface area and deeper pressure if needed because it uses gravity and body weight to provide pressure. 
During treatment, the therapist uses the parallel bars overhead for balance while applying slow , gliding foot pressure and compression to strategic points along the spine and body. Ashiatsu's one and two-footed strokes distribute pressure evenly over a large area of the body, providing a deep and relaxing massage without the pain often associated with a traditional massage.
