Ashiatsu massage is a barefoot massage technique that comes from Asia. During ashiatsu massage, the therapist positions themselves above the client while holding onto parallel bars attached to the ceiling. Using the bars for balance the therapist then uses their feet to combat deep tension in the client’s muscles. The main benefit is that it allows the therapist to apply more pressure then using their hands. This is particularly beneficial for clients dealing with chronic tension that can not be addressed with a traditional deep tissue massage.
