What is Ashiatsu Massage?
In Japanese, Ashi-atsu means foot-pressure. This ancient style of barefoot massage includes the use of overhead bars for support and utilizes deep-tissue massage therapy to reduce chronic fatigue and heal old, stubborn injuries. Barefoot massage refers to bodywork where the therapist is primarily using their feet to deliver the massage.
What is Deep Tissue Massage?
Deep tissue massage focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. In contrast, Swedish massage uses lighter pressure for the purpose of relaxation, whereas deep tissue has a more therapeutic focus to relieve chronic pain and soothe deep muscle tension.
What is Ashi Thai Massage?
Ashi Thai massage combines the use of a massage table and overhead bars to help with delivering stretches, mobilizations, and compressions. It feels a lot like having yoga done to you, and it is especially helpful for increasing range of motion and flexibility.
What is Shiatsu and Thai Massage?
In Japanese, Shi-atsu means finger-pressure. Shiatsu and Thai massage are very similar. They both include stretching, compressions, and acupressure massage. Traditionally, these styles of massage are provided on a cushioned floor mat while the receiver is dressed in loose, comfortable clothing.
*Sessions with Christina primarily blend deep tissue, Ashiatsu, and Ashi Thai massage. Bodywork is provided on a massage table and with massage oil. Acupressure and stretching techniques from Shiatsu and Thai massage are often integrated into sessions.
