WHAT IS

ASHIATSU?

“Ashi” in Japanese means “foot.” “Atsu” means “pressure.” In the US, Ashiatsu has become the familiar term to describe barefoot effleurage massage.

This effleurage (which means 'gliding') style originally derived from Chavutti Thirummal, an ancient massage technique developed in Kerala, India by martial artists influenced by Buddhist monk traditions. Read more...

  1. The most comfortable modality to receive due to the padding & strength of the soles that hands, fists, forearms, and elbows do not have.

  2. Stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system to create the most effective, therapeutic massage.
  3. Provides more consistent, satisfactory & desired pressure with a rhythmic delivery.

  4. Elongates the spine; creates space in the vertebral column.

  5. Creates longer lasting results and has greater effectiveness than hand work due to the gliding compression and layers reached with soft, padded, soles.

WHY CHOOSE

Step into Samba?

Ashiatsu has become an increasingly popular modality due to the superior results for clientele, as well as offering incredible benefits to therapists who provide it. It is literally the most evolutionary & progressive modality to add to your repertoire.

"I found learning this artistic, effective modality (ASHIATSU) was akin to riding a motorcycle: it takes time to evolve. Being a motorcyclist, as well as a figure skater, it was a perfect fit for me. My soles were born!"

-Brenda Blakesley, Founder of Southwest Ashiatsu Massage & Bodywork Academy
