There is a centuries-old massage technique growing in popularity in North America, one which gives increased feeling of well-being and stress relief among other benefits.
Back Walking, also known as Ashiatsu, is a bare foot massage option for anyone looking for an extremely beneficial and relaxing deep tissue massage. This ancient Eastern massage technique involves a trained therapist using their feet to walk gently up and down the back of a client. The therapist uses pressure to manipulate the muscles through long, flowing strokes, pushing, and pulling movements.
Controlled pushing, or kneading, of the muscles can loosen even the tightest areas and can free up all the tension for months of relief. The pressure is controlled and can be eased or elevated depending on the clients needs and it is always focused on the muscles, never pushing on the ts or spine.
While the client gets a deep, relaxing massage the therapist can get quite the workout as the movements are gliding and pushing, similar to a slow dance. There are many exciting benefits from Back Walking, or Ashiatsu, deep tissue massage that will elevate your well-being and work out those problem areas.
Some of the benefits include:. Want to help that chronic pain, those stiff ts, and tight muscles then walk out of the ordinary massage zone and let a trained Ashiatsu massage therapist walk on you. Imagine laying face down on the massage table with your head in the hole.
