Ashiatsu Barefeet Massage Therapy also can be called Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy (AOBT) or “Back-walking”. Word “Ashiatsu” came from Japan. The root “Ashi” means foot and “atsu” means pressure so together they symbolize “foot pressure”. This technique is a deep relaxing treatment and cn be done on full body. The massage therapist’s body weight is used to press, sweep, swirl and relax the muscle. The massage is done in slow, smooth and relaxed manner.
Relaxing Massage is the most common type of massage therapy. It is also known as Swedish massage, which aims to relax muscle tension and improve lymphatic and blood circulation through mild pressure applied to the muscle groups of the body. Massage soothes the nervous system to decrease stress and relieve the symptoms of a number of stress-related conditions. One of the primary goals of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body.
Deep Tissue Massage targets the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. The massage therapist uses slower strokes or friction techniques across the grain of the muscle. DTM is used for chronically tight or painful muscles, repetitive strain, postural problems, or recovery from injury.
Myofascial Release Massage operates on the principle that you store stress and tension in your muscles and your connective tissue. This causes them to become stiff and locked, which results in discomfort, or even pain, in your everyday life. MRM seeks to unlock this discomfort through stretches.Treatment session is performed directly on skin without oils, creams or machinery. This enables the therapist to accurately detect fascial restrictions and apply the appropriate amount of sustained pressure to facilitate release of the fascia.
Sports Massage is specifically designed for people who are involved in physical activity. The focus is preventing and treating injury and enhancing athletic performance. Facilitated stretching is a common technique. It helps to loosen muscles and increase flexibility.
Neuromuscular Therapy is the methods of bodywork that use interaction between the nervous system and muscles to facilitate a change in muscular holding patterns are forms of neuromuscular therapy. Form of therapy focusing on the trigger points and the removal of adhesions. This form of massage is especially helpful in treating chronic pain.
Prenatal Massage designed for the expectant mother. During this massage are used specially designed cushions to provide from swelling and cramping and for better comfort. Massage therapists uses smooth strokes, kneading, and circular movements on superficial layers of muscle.

Massage therapy performed during pregnancy can reduce anxiety, decrease symptoms of depression, relieve muscle aches and joint pains, reduce swelling and improve labor outcomes.

Reiki (ray-key) is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. “Rei”- means universal and “Ki” is life energy. In a reiki healing session, the practitioner, trained to access and serve as a channel for the life force (ki or chi), places her hands on or just above the client’s body in order to activate healing energy within receptive points on the body. The practitioner’s hands move progressively with a passive touch through twelve positions on the body, remaining in each position for three to five minutes. As a harmonic flow of energy is strengthened, within the client and practitioner, healing occurs through the return of physical, mental, and spiritual balance.
An additional 10 minutes of healing energy work for $10.00
