Experience a different, yet improved way to receive a massage. Ashiatsu, in Japanese, translates to "foot pressure." It is a western version of an ancient form of bodywork, with roots dating back thousands of years.
There are many benefits to receiving Ashiatsu massage. By using the soft padded soles of the feet, broad, deep, even pressure is achieved which helps increase blood and lymph flow, elongate the spine, deepens relaxation by stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system, relieves sciatic and low back pain and provides an overall gentler, effective, relaxing experience. Ashiatsu also helps to achieve better, longer lasting results in less time. Book an appointment today and see why this is called “the most luxurious, unique massage you will ever receive!”
