ASHIATSU DEEPFEET BAR THERAPY

“The deepest, most luxurious form of barefoot massage on the planet.” Ashiatsu Deepfeet Bar Therapy (ADBT) provides the deepest pressure with minimal effort by the therapist. Utilizing parallel bars on the ceiling for balance and leverage, the therapist uses his/her body weight to the thick layers of the muscles of the back. This technique is deeply relaxing like a traditional swedish massage. The massage therapist’s body weight is used to press, sweep, swirl and relax the muscles. Correct application will provide deep relaxation and stimulate the lymphatic system of the body. This hour (or ninety minute) session is like no other massage you have ever experienced. Perfect for the person who may suffer from chronic back pain, scoliosis, or bulging herniated disc problems.

The Ashiatsu Deepfeet Bar Therapy has a permanent training center at Stone Temple Institute. We offer training sessions every month for massage therapist looking to save their wrists and back and extend their careers. See training info for information and costs or call 860-669-2548 to register!

ASHI-THAI

An innovative change from traditional Thai massage on the floor, this session is done on the massage table. Thai massage is more energizing and rigorous than more classic forms of massage. It is also called Thai yoga massage, because the therapist uses their hands, knees, legs, and feet to move you into a series of yoga-like stretches. Many people say Thai massage is like doing yoga without any work! Muscle compression, joint mobilization, and acupressure are also used during treatment. No oil is applied, so you are fully dressed. Please plan to bring or wear comfortable clothing to the massage.
