Massage is a very ancient technique that has been used by humans and animals alike. Early humans would rub bruises and sore muscles,
just as we do today. Massage has long been used as one of the most natural ways to ease pain and discomfort. The
instinctive behavior in animals of using pressure, or licking, is a way to relieve pain or respond to injury. The mother
animal licking her newborn is another example of massage that helps stimulate circulation, bonding, and socialization of the
massage is the application of various techniques to soft tissues of the body such as skin, muscles, and fascia. These
techniques are usually applied with the hands, but may also be applied with the foot, knee, forearm, or elbow depending on
the size and location of the muscles that are being worked. Varying dept of pressure and intensity is offered through our
Swedish, Deep Tissue, Ashiatsu and Bamboo Fusion massges....and as always,the therapy is customized to meet our clients needs
Ashiatsu Massage...What is it?
Ashiatsu is a type of massage therapy in which the therapist walks on
the client’s back, using bars for support to vary pressure and weight. Beginning in the East, ashiatsu’s
history spans several continents and more than 3,000 years. Many different styles of barefoot massage have originated
from India, Japan, Thailand, China, and the Phillipines. Brought into the mainstream U.S. massage industry as "ashiatsu
oriental bar therapy" in 1999 by Ruthie Hardee, this western application was derived from a myriad of classic sources.
This style of massage is done with the client lying face down on the massage table, draped in a sheet. The massage therapist
uses a set pf parallel bars above the massage table for support while essentially dancing on the client’s back combining
long, flowing strokes with the feet. The western spin on barefoot massage is known to improve posture, relieve pain
and stress, treat spinal problems, and provide an incredibly deep massage, all while still being gentle. “With
regular massage, the #1 complaint is that the therapist didn’t go deep enough” Hardee says. The intensity
of this massage can be tailored to the needs of the client.
