Ashiatsu massage is the practice of a trained massage therapist or masseuse applying pressure using their feet by standing on the back of their patient. This allows them to get deeper into the muscles and tissue than they could by using only their hands. Because the therapist uses their feet rather than thumb or elbow, Ashiatsu Massage tends to be much gentler as well as deeper than regular massage.
What to Expect
During a massage appointment, our massage therapist, Pearl, will briefly discuss your massage history, any health issues, and what you would like to get out of a session. She will also ask if there are any specific areas you would like her to work on, and answer any questions you may have.
Receiving a regular massage can reduce stress and muscle tension, increase blood flow and circulation, release toxins, improve immune function, increase flexibility, and much more. Some chiropractors and healthcare professionals recommend getting a massage every 4-6 weeks to see continual health benefits.
Pearl specializes in Ashiatsu massage, but she also offers therapeutic massage.
