Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy

This treatment is only offered in my Phoenix, Arizona office.

With this innovative method, I work on you using my feet instead of the Western method of hands, forearm, and elbow. Deepfeet Bar Therapy is incredibly effective with profound results. I encourage everyone to experience this type of deep tissue massage. You will be completely amazed at how effective it is. And you won't even be able to tell that you're being worked on with my feet! I especially recommend this treatment for athletes and larger people who need a stronger touch.

One Deepfeet Bar Therapy session can give the same result as two or three consecutive Western style massages.

The forces from the broad pressure of my foot spread the body open and allow us to work deeper. Any blockage or stiffness in the muscles, joints, or spine releases. Your body feels lighter with more freedom of movement, and freedom from pain. The Deepfeet Bar Therapy works systemically on many body systems - the myofascia, the lymphatic, the nervous, the cardiovascular, and perhaps the endocrine system. We are working on the whole body, at the same time that we're focused on any one area of the body.

Deepfeet Bar Therapy was also known as Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy. Pronounced "ah- she- hot- sue". "Ashi" in Japanese means "foot." "Astu" means "pressure." Deepfeet Bar Therapy uses gravitational force from the therapist's feet, instead of the hands. Parallel bars, attached to the ceiling, are used by the therapist for balance and proper weight distribution. The larger size and padding of the soles provide a push-pull-pump technique that is not only deeper, but more comfortable than traditional hands massage. Feet, compared to hands, have a greater affect on the client's parasympathetic nervous system, which allows the client to dive deeper into relaxation.
