Ashiatsu in Japanese translates to "foot pressure". In this luxurious and effective deep tissue massage, I use my bare feet and own body weight to deliver firm, broad strokes that lengthen tight, sore muscles. Parallel bars are used above the massage table for balance and to deliver deeper pressure. This is my specialty and a truly transformative massage experience. Ashiatsu is a descendant of an Ayurvedic practice called Chavutti Thirummal, a specialized foot-massage technique associated with a form of martial arts in India. Here in the U.S., the treatment has evolved into a Western form of Ashiatsu, where a massage table with overhead bars is used for support and balance. Ashiatsu is such a powerful technique because it fuses compression and pressure. Compression massage manipulates the circulatory system, which encourages healing. To administer deep pressure, the use of the feet, rather than hands, is most appropriate, and the result enhances circulation and accelerates healing. This balanced approach to massage therapy uses the lower extremities, as well as the feet, as these parts of the body are better equipped to handle deep-tissue, compression massage. In fact, the Ashiatsu massage is the deepest pressure that a massage therapist can give.
