Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy® is a deeply relaxing treatment and is known as “the deepest most luxurious massage on the planet.” Deep tissue massage fanatics often ask for more pressure than the therapist is able to consistently provide. Well, with Ashiatsu, we have the potential of applying our entire body weight when appropriate – can’t get much deeper than that! (And a true lady never reveals her weight or shoe size, so please don’t ask!) If you are looking for a massage deep enough to relax every fiber of your being, THIS IS IT! It can be very deep and yet feel astonishingly relaxing. You will lie comfortably on a massage table with traditional draping and our therapists will use soft, clean feet to massage muscle fibers with oil and lotion. Bars are used above our therapist’s head for support and balance.
