Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy® is a barefoot massage modality that uses deep compression and long soothing strokes. The therapist holds onto bars in the ceiling and provides all massage strokes with the feet. The massage therapist's body weight is used to apply pressure and relax the muscles! This technique is an extremely relaxing treatment!
Ashiatsu compression movements help relieve muscle pain and spasm while elongating the spine. A dramatic increase in circulation brings freshly oxygenated blood to the areas being treated. AOBT works like a steamroller for your lymphatic system, pushing toxins out at a very high rate. The continuous deep tissue pressure that is delivered with the feet covers much larger areas at once than your hands. The foot is broad and makes the compression smooth and sumptuous not bony or prodding like using an elbow, thumb or massage tool. After only a few treatments, clients have improved posture, increased range of motion, improvement in bodily functions, and feel a sense of well being!
