If you’re in need of deep tissue work, but don’t enjoy the discomfort of pointy elbows and thumbs, then Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy® is the optimal treatment for you. Ashiatsu is a barefoot massage technique in which the therapist delivers deep, broad, consistent pressure while utilizing their feet and body weight.

Warm infused oil is applied to the body making this deep massage very luxurious and relaxing. Parallel bars are used above the massage table for balance, support and client safety. DISCOVER THE BENEFITS OF ASHIATSU MASSAGE: Deep Tissue Without Discomfort If you’re in need of deep tissue work, but don’t want the discomfort that comes with pointy elbows and thumbs, then Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy® is the treatment for you. Gravity enables your therapist to deliver deeper pressure than with hands-on, so you’ll enjoy the same extra range of movement and chronic tension relief without having to endure painful strokes. Frees Up Bundled Nerves Ashiatsu compression movements along the paraspinals and the lumbar region can relieve muscle spasm and open the intervertebral foramen (where spinal nerves pass through). It will give the nerves more space as well as increase circulation by bringing more freshly oxygenated blood to the area being treated. Stretches The Spine Many of Ashiatsu strokes help to elongate the spine. These movements dramatically stretch the shortened muscles, relieving any discomfort. These strokes also help the body’s lymphatic system release toxins at a very high rate, which is why it is important to drink lots of water before and after a treatment. Improves Body Posture After a few treatments, Ashiatsu will help improve your posture and movement, will relieve most if not all chronic pain, improve bodily functions and create a higher sense of balance within the body. Typically, one treatment a week for upwards of six weeks will produce these kinds of results.

tight or stiff, the therapist will still be able to penetrate deep into the tissues. In combination with deep-tissue,
Swedish, and Asiatsu techniques, there’s no muscular problem this massage won’t address.
While all types of massage can help relieve pain caused by tense muscles, stiff joints or injuries, a Fusion massage
may provide greater relief due to its intense nature. The incorporation of heat from the hot stones, deep relaxing
strokes of Ashiatsu and the targeting of specific areas with the hands and fingers, will leave your body completely
renewed and refreshed.
The heat from the stones penetrates deeply into your body tissues, which will enable the blood vessels to open and
circulation to improve. Poor circulation can lead to fatigue, which tenses the muscles, creating a buildup of Cortisol
and lactic acid in the muscles. Increased circulation brings more oxygen to the muscles, which can help alleviate
