The deep relaxation techniques of barefoot massage aim to ease the mind as well as the body. Muscles can become tight and ineffective for many reasons. Over time, stress, injury, poor circulation, overuse and misuse can cause pain and discomfort as well as restrict your range of motion. When left unattended these conditions can become habitual and hamper the quality of everyday life. Contracted muscles can press on or pinch your nerves causing tingling, numbness or pain. Deep barefoot massage therapy stretches and loosens tight contracted muscles and connective tissue, improving your range of motion and flexibility. Mental stress has been shown to make people more susceptible to physical illness. Massage therapy has an amazing effect on the nervous system, relaxing your body's muscle tension, easing the strain on vital organs and allowing your heart rate, blood pressure and circulation to return to normal, calming the nervous system.
Now you can receive a deep tissue massage without the pain often associated with traditional thumbs and elbows. Bare feet, slowly sinking down into soft tissue using gentle fascia manipulation mobilizing adhesive tissues. Soothing, deep relaxation.
Experience the wonder of barefoot massage ... it is the little known secret to total relaxation. Integrating Eastern techniques from Japan known as Ashi Atsu meaning foot pressure and Western techniques from the USA known as Soothing Swedish, the best of both worlds. Creating a soothing deep tissue massage delivered by gravity-assisted bare feet, better under pressure!
The therapist stands above you on the table, using an overhead support system consisting of parallel bars suspended from the ceiling for balance, leverage and support. Light warm oil applied. Being barefoot, evenly distributing weight with precision and consistent deep compression. The foot's wider surface and natural curves conform to the body skillfully and gently accessing deeper layers. The key is sustained pressure over time combined with smooth gliding pressure to relinquish unhealthy holding patterns. This therapy is a beautiful elongation of the spine. Creating a structural change in chronic soft tissue damage. Resistance is futile.
