Ashiatsu DeepFeet Bar Therapy® is the original western barefoot bar massage technique using deep tissue/compression effleurage strokes that glide over the body. Movements are combined with centrifugal and centripetal directions. Specific strokes create a structural change in chronic soft tissue damage and provide deep relaxation. Bars are used above the head for support and balance. Lubricant is applied to the body. Developed by massage therapist, Ruthie Piper Hardee in 1995 as a result of her own scoliosis and disk pain associated with bending over the table to deliver deep tissue massage.
Consumers love the continuous deep tissue pressure you are able to deliver with your feet because it covers much larger areas at once than your hands. The foot is broad and makes the compression smooth and sumptuous not bony or prodding like using an elbow, thumb or massage tool.
The consistent pressure is easily maintained hour after hour. Consumers feel like they got a 2 hour deep tissue massage in about 40 minutes. They get relieve from chronic inflammation faster than that of a normal massage. Imagine being able to work client after client and never having to bend at the waist ever again to give deep compression.
Your hands and wrists can take a break too. Clients feel like they got more “bang for their buck” and the stress and strain on your body was effortless. The results of those suffering from chronic back, neck and shoulder pain have amazing testimonials. Our clients show dramatic results with better posture and over all well being.
