Massage Therapy and Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Massage

 Written by: Renee Gosselin, MS MBA RD

I have always been a believer in the healing of the body through relaxation techniques and massage. Currently, my massage therapist offers the options to have regular deep tissue massage or Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Massage.  On a personal note, I have now been a client  receiving massage therapy for over 8 years and I have noticed a huge improvement after an injury. Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Massage has allowed for an even deeper tissue massage for myself so I decided to share the details in case it maybe an option for you or a loved one.  So what can massage therapy do for you and what is Ashiatsu you ask? 

Massage therapy can be utilized for many different reasons including but not limited to: relaxation, injury, sports injury, and stress reduction.  Massage has also been known to help with anxiety, digestive disorders, insomnia, headaches, and more.  There are multiple types of massage including Swedish, deep tissue, sports massage, and trigger point.

Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Massage is a type of massage that utilizes the bare feet to apply pressure to the back and side area. In general, there are ceiling bars that a licensed massaged therapist that is trained in Ashiatsu hangs from to apply pressure to the back/side area. Specific techniques of applying pressure to certain areas of the body are administered.  Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Massage is known to release stress, help with posture and treat spinal problems. Gravity allows for deep tissue work to occur it this type of massage.

 Overall massage therapy can allow for relaxation and healing at the same time. 

*** When choosing a licensed massage therapist, do your research and find one that is right for you. Additionally, consult with your doctor before receiving any treatment.

For the past few weeks, my back has been killing me! My friend suggested that I get a massage, and it sounds like something that would be amazing! The Asian massage technique of using bare feet to apply pressure, sounds like something I need in my life! It would be great to get rid of this pain and stress!
