The meaning of the word Ashiatsu means "feet pressure". This modality dates back thousands of years ago in countries of Japan, India, Fiji, Phillipines, and the US.
What will my first Barefoot Massage be like?
Not sure what to expect? No worries, I hope that the next little bit of information will help better prepare you for your first barefoot massage experience. If you have any questions, you are always welcome to give me a call or text at 336-715-0222.
So let's dive in.
Massage has been a passion of mine, to help people our of their mental and physical pain through massage, and with that, I understand that I need to take measures to prepare my body to stay around for the years to come. This led me to Ashiatsu Barefoot Massage. I have been trained to deliver Ashiatsu Barefoot Massage to my clients and the benefits are too many to name, but I will try.
Who can benefit from Ashiatsu?
It's great for individuals who have chronic conditions such as back/hip pain, shoulder pain, or scoliosis. It's also extremely beneficial for all types of athletes looking for treatment and prevention of injuries, increased range of motion, fast recovery, and long-lasting results.
What will my session be like?
Before we begin your session, you will have a chance to ask any questions you may have. You will see that I have two parallel bars attached to the ceiling, this is used to help me balance.
Once I step out of the room, you will have time to undress to your comfort level. While you are doing this, I will be washing and my hands and soles. I'll return with a knock on the door.
During your session, you will be able to relax, unwind and enjoy the techniques of this special modality. The back, hips and legs are the most ideal place to receive Ashaitsu massage. When you are face up (supine) I may choose to only use my hands, depending on your goals for the session.
It’s great if you can let your body relax and sink into the table. If we need to move your arms or legs, etc, we'll do the work or ask for your assistance! This takes practice.
It’s really important for you to tell us if any massage techniques we use causes pain. Pain is not okay. There may be a certain level of discomfort and ‘good ache’ if we’re working on a problem area. It’s important that you tell us about that, too, so we can tailor the massage to be most effective.
We’ll check in with you as we go, but please speak up if you become too warm or too cool, if you are not comfortable on the table, need another pillow, or if you just hate the music! We have tons of music genres for you to choose from.
After the session >>
You will likely feel very relaxed and chilled after your massage or bodywork session or you might even feel energized! If we addressed pain issues, you may immediately feel a reduction in pain, or it may take a few days before you feel that relief. If you are ever REALLY sore following a session (it can happen), we recommend that you drink lots of water, take a hot shower or an Epsom salt bath. These are always beneficial after every session anyway!
