Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy deep tissue barefoot massage is really a massage treatment that is like no other. Well, others have imitated it, but it's the orignal source of barefoot massage using an overhead bar system with a table and client underneath.
Why so different? Because with traditional deep tissue massage, the therapist uses bony thumbs and elbows to give deep pressure. Unless their arms are well insulated/padded, it usually hurts the client. Enter a soft heel and ball of the foot. A much broader surface, it is the perfect tool to work out knots on the client without their silently (or loudly!) swearing at the therapist.
Ashiatsu is the perfect choice for clients who need deep tissue work but don't feel like lying on the massage table for an hour or more of torture. (Just my opinion, by the way).
