Ashiatsu is an ancient art & therapeutic practice of barefoot massage therapy. It is performed on a massage table with overhead parallel bars to ensure stability and precision. It is very relaxing and is well suited to those who like moderate or deep pressure.

The gliding strokes of Ashiatsu offer the experience of incredibly consistent pressure and an incomparable sensation of flow. The broad and rounded surfaces of the feet make deep work much more comfortable with clients often reporting less consequent pain after a deep tissue massage with the feet than with elbows or fingers. This modality is extremely effective in the treatment of most soft tissue complaints including low back pain, sciatica, repetitive strain injuries, stress relief & relaxation.

Ashiatsu is recognized by the CMTO as Registered Massage Therapy. If you have medical insurance or benefits that cover massage therapy, Ashiatsu will be included.
