Ashi-Atsu meaning: foot pressure
Ashiatsu's history spans several continents and more than 3,000 years; the many different styles of barefoot massage have originated in India, Japan, Thailand and the Philippines.
Ashiatsu is a massage modality in which the massage therapists use bars attached to the ceiling for gravitational assistance and balance. This allows the therapists to glide over muscles, using their feet as hands, working deeper tissue and moving more fascia.
The Western version of Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy is known to improve posture, relieve pain, and reduce stress. Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy is able to treat spinal problems and provide an incredibly deep massage, all while still being relaxing. This type of massage is great for people with tense shoulders and hips and also those with tight ligaments.
