Ashiatsu Massage

Ashiatsu (pronounced awe-shee-at-sue) has been around for centuries and is considered the planet's deepest, most luxurious massage. The unique technique, often called a barefoot massage, involves specially educated massage therapists using their feet to apply deep pressure to your body. Ashiatsu allows the deep tissues, joints, and muscles to be massaged while easing the nervous system, feeling like a mesmerizing massage with deep, broad, pressured strokes and no pain.

Additionally, its healing potential can be harnessed for:

  • symptom relief from pain or injuries
  • improved circulation
  • improved digestion and lymphatic drainage
  • enhanced sleep quality
  • improved mental clarity
  • restored range of motion in joints

What are the different types of massage therapy?

There are several types of massages available, including Swedish massage, deep tissue massage, sports massage, lymphatic massage, and prenatal massage.

Each type of massage uses its techniques to relax the muscles, reduce stress levels, and improve overall health. 

  • Swedish massage combines effleurage (light strokes) with petrissage (kneading and pressing movements), which may be accompanied by tapping or joint movement for increased relaxation. 
  • Deep tissue massage is used to target deeper muscle layers and connective tissue and can help relieve chronic pains from tension or injury. 
  • Sports massage uses an array of stretching exercises in targeted areas to improve athletic performance while providing pain relief. 
  • Lymphatic massage promotes improved circulation by boosting the flow of lymph fluid around the body. 
  • Prenatal massage is designed specifically for expecting mothers to reduce muscle cramps, pregnancy-related hormones, and tension in the lower back caused by added weight gain during pregnancy.

What type of massage therapy is best for me?

The most suitable type of massage therapy for an individual depends on the person's specific needs. 

  • Those seeking relief from muscle tension might benefit from Swedish massage techniques.
  • Those experiencing pain due to a sports injury may find greater success with deep-tissue methods. 
  • Additionally, individuals that are suffering from depression or anxiety may enjoy a session of reflexology, which focuses more on treating tension related to specific points on the body. 

Whichever type of massage you choose, it's important to consider your health and speak to our highly trained masseuse before your session.
