Ashiatsu massage, or barefoot massage, is a deeply therapeutic massage technique. During this unique session, your massage therapist will “surf” up and down your body, taking advantage of gravity and his or her own body weight to release tense muscles and access myofascial trigger points.
We are proud to offer ashiatsu massage in our Colorado Springs location.
WHAT IS ASHIATSU MASSAGE?
Ashiatsu barefoot massage is a type of myofascial massage, which helps loosens tight muscles and ligaments. Accessing the body from above provides the massage therapist with direct access to muscles and trouble spots, allowing him or her to apply much more pressure to the tissues than is possible when standing on the ground, leaning over you. This deep access treats all layers of tissue, effectively ironing out tight muscles and soothing the nervous system for full body relaxation.
The pressure from ashiatsu barefoot massage not only feels amazing for your muscles, but is also calming to your nervous system. All day long, our bodies receive messages telling us to “go”, “do”, “be”, and “run”. During an ashiatsu massage session, all of those messages are hushed by the deep downward pressure exerted on the body. This pressure signals the mind and body to stop, slow down, and enter resting mode.
The best part is you don’t have to do anything. The reaction happens naturally. You’ll receive a deeply therapeutic massage that your muscles crave and your nervous system desperately needs. After an ashiatsu massage in our Colorado Springs office, you’ll feel like you are floating out the door.
We call it “Camino Bliss” and you have to experience it for yourself!
