Ashiatsu is a deep, relaxing style of massage where the therapist uses a mix of feet and hands to perform the massage. This is a great alternative for clients who need and love deep massage, but don’t like the “pokey” feeling of traditional deep tissue styles. The massage therapist holds on to wooden bars above the massage table in order to deliver the correct amount of pressure- it can go from very light all the way to “full body weight” deep! Both Helen and Stephany have received advanced training for Ashiatsu, and love this style of massage for how quickly their clients have taken to it.
At EHM, we’ve developed a custom metal and wood “cage” to help the therapist modulate body weight for the massage. If you’re a massage therapist and interested in a custom cage built for your office, feel free to contact us!
