The Ultimate Massage for Myofascial & Pain Release
"No one has ever worked on my lower back like this before. Whoever invented this technique is a genius. I don't think I can ever go back to traditional massage again." -Monica, San Francisco
Ashiatsu is truly Amazing when it comes to Myofascial Soft Tissue Release. It uses broad strokes and gliding compression to effect large areas of muscle and connective tissue in a way that can't easily be attained with classic techniques. Angela Bothwell and Amber Tarpley both specialize in Barefoot Ashiatsu. The experience is similar to the feeling Swedish & Deep Tissue Massage but is a powerhouse approach that not only releases multiple muscle groups in one stroke, but it also wakes up the body's energy flow.
Broad Pressure vs. Sharp Pressure
Can you imagine the feeling of a sharp elbow pressing into one small spot on a very large muscle? It hurts, accomplishes very little, and wastes a lot of time. Compare this to the feeling of a broad, sumptuous, gliding stroke, which provides the maximum amount of pressure you want, yet comfortably stretches several large muscle groups at once. 20 minutes of broad, Ashiatsu-style pressure accomplishes what it takes an hour of Classical Swedish Massage to do! We can use both types of pressure, as needed to deliver the most effective tool for the right area of your body. This style of massage stretches tight muscles, increases flexibility & range of motion, improves posture and relieves spasms. Myofascial trigger points, adhesions and chronic holding patterns are released. And the long, expansive strokes increase circulation and stimulate the lymphatic and immune systems.
The Most Effective Deep Tissue Massage Available
Your treatment can be given with gentle pressure, medium, or deep. Many people who don't like firm pressure still love receiving Ashiatsu. However, for those who love Deep Tissue Massage, Ashiatsu is the Gold Standard! With this approach, deeper pressure can be achieved in a more comfortable way. The long, slow, flowing, strokes feel smooth and relaxing. And consistent compression is achieved without discomfort or pain. The therapeutic benefits are greatly magnified and an impressive range of pressure is possible. Every stroke is adjusted for your ideal comfort. Ashiatsu is truly unmatched by other Deep Tissue techniques. It’s more comfortable, more pain free, and more effective. You will leave the session with new freedom of movement, feeling fully rejuvenated in body, mind and soul!
