Ashiatsu Massage

With the Ashiatsu technique, the therapist holds onto parallel overhead bars and uses their clean feet to apply pressure in broad fluid strokes. The use of the bars allows the practitioner to work with gravity to apply deeper, more even pressure. The result is an intensely relaxing massage session. Ashiatsu massage originated in Japan, “ashi” translates to foot, and “atsu” into pressure. 

The broader surface area of the foot offers a more comfortable sensation when pressure is applied, as opposed to the pointier thumb or elbow used in a deep tissue massage.

Most Ashi techniques are done with one foot at a time, in a specific and focused way, or by sitting on a stool if using both feet at the same time.

Summer uses both hands and feet during her sessions at both our spa locations which allows for a fuller exploration of depth and details. The pressure of the style of massage is completely customizable – it can be light as a feather or as deep as possible. It all depends on what the client wants! The deeper pressure applied with the Ashiatsu method offers a greater sense of relief to the muscles and fascia, leading to increased circulation of the blood, pain relief, and greater feelings of decompression.

We also offer deep tissue massage, sports massage, and more at our downtown spa. Read about the other styles of massages.
