Thai Step-On Massage
Thai Step-On Massage (barefoot massage or Ashiatsu ) is an ancient form of bodywork that uses the feet and the practitioner’s body weight to perform deep tissue work on specific pressure points on the body, resulting in the client feeling refreshed and stimulated.
Using a cane for balance and support to vary position and weight, the practitioner applies pressure by using different foot strokes with the feet on the body’s muscles.
The movement is like a slow motion walk, with the feet pressing and pulling on the client’s muscles, elongating them to release tension, open energy channels, release toxins and stimulate the body’s own self-healing capabilities.
This massage is ideal for those who desire a gratifying and results-driven treatment i.e. athletes, body builder, larger clients, and those who can never get enough pressure in a massage. The massage is performed with the client wearing loose comfortable clothing while lying on a cushioned mat on the floor.
