Ashiatsu massage is a deeply therapeutic technique using the therapist's feet to deliver soothing pressure. It releases tension, improves circulation, and offers unparalleled relaxation. Experience the benefits of deep tissue massage without the discomfort.

Ashiatsu DeepFeet Bar Therapy is a barefoot massage technique in which the therapist delivers deep, broad, consistent pressure while utilizing their feet and body weight. Working with gravity instead of against it, Ashi therapists can provide an effective therapeutic massage without causing pain or discomfort to themselves or the receiving client.

Gravity enables your therapist to deliver up to 3x deeper pressure than with traditional hands-on treatments. Utilizing the broad surface of their foot as their massage tool provides consistent pressure and contours nicely to the body. As a result, clients will enjoy the same extra range of movement and decrease chronic tension relief without enduring painful strokes that a traditional massage might have. So if you’re in the ‘no pain, no gain’ camp and think that bodywork has to hurt to be effective, consider trying an Ashiatsu massage for your next session to see how spectacular it is. Profoundly therapeutic and relaxing all at once.

After only a few treatments, Ashiatsu barefoot massage may help to improve posture and range of motion. It may significantly reduce or eliminate chronic muscle pain and improve bodily functions, which can create a higher sense of balance and well-being within the body. Typically, one treatment a week for upwards of six weeks may produce these kinds of results.

We look forward to seeing you for your next session!

  • Deep Tissue Massage Doesn’t Have To Hurt

    Deep tissue massage need not be painful to work effectively. The misconception of "no pain, no gain" doesn't apply here. Deep tissue techniques can vary in pressure, with lighter methods like myofascial release often yielding significant results without discomfort. Effective massage is about communication and should never cause more than a "good hurt." If it becomes painful, it's counterproductive. Speak up to ensure a comfortable and effective experience.
