Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy is an ancient form of massage practiced mainly in Asia. In 1997, a western twist was brought to Ashiatsu by Ruthie Hardee.
At Zama, our Ashiatsu is a combination of Swedish massage with long, flowing, deep effleurage and deep compression strokes.
Using leg and core strength, along with gravity, allows the therapist to provide a deep/broad pressure that cannot be achieved using the hands.
Ashiatsu massage is great for athletes on all levels. While the deep/broad pressure Ashiatsu moves a lot of blood to muscle tissues, the circulations assist in recovery from long, hard workouts. Increasing blood flow to the muscle tissues will provide relief to sensitive muscles.
Ashiatsu massage is also great for those who just can’t seem to find a therapist who provides them with deep enough pressure. The broad strokes are much more comfortable than manual deep tissue massage. In addition, the combination of even pressure and long strokes provides excellent spinal traction. Many Ashiatsu enthusiasts report better posture and even increased height from the spinal traction provided in Ashiatsu therapy.
