This is basically a Deep Tissue massage, except with the feet. Ashiatsu is a barefoot massage technique in which the therapist delivers deep broad pressure with their feet. The broad pressure is easier for the client to receive verses a pointy elbow or thumb that is used in a deep tissue massage. With Ashiatsu the pressure can be adjusted if needed. So if the pressure is ever too much or too little it’s a easy to modify during your session. One hour of Ashiatsu is two hours of a Swedish deep tissue. This is because the therapist is able to work with a larger surface area therefore; increasing circulation of blood, lymph, lactic acid and toxins. Book your Ashiatsu appointment today!

Deep tissue massage focuses on stretching fascia, a three-dimensional web of connective tissue that surrounds, which supports all of the muscles, bones, nerves and organs in the body. Deep tissue massage works layer by layer through the connective tissue. It works through the layers to change posture and create freedom of movement by releasing fascial adhesions and chronic muscle tension. Adhesions and scar tissue form in muscles because of injury, chronic poor posture, chronic or acute inflammation and repetitive motions. During a deep tissue massage, the therapist use their fingers, thumbs, fists, forearms and elbows to stretch each muscle and fascia layer. Are you wanting the benefits of a deep tissue massage but dislike the discomforts and specific pressure? Try a Ashiatsu massage which uses the feet, a broader surface area to work adhesions.

Swedish massage therapy is the modality that comes to mind when most people think about massage. As the best-known type of bodywork performed today, one of the primary goals of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body. The techniques of Swedish massage are, effleurage (gliding), petrissage (kneading), tapotement (rhythmic tapping), friction (cross fiber) and vibration/shaking. These techniques are used with a light to medium pressure. Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level or oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, increasing circulation and flexibility while easing tension.
