Do’s & Don’ts after your Ashiatsu Massage

After any massage, there are cautionary don’ts and do’s. After 60 minutes of this technique, your back muscles will be very supple and the chance of injury is greater.  Please take the following precautions for 48 hours after receiving a massage.  Specifically, after an Ashiatsu massage,

 you should:

  • drink LOTS of water
  • do gentle stretches
  • treat yourself with a nice hot shower
  • or sit in a sauna, steam room or hot tub
  • use Biofreeze to your lower lumbar area as needed
  • wear back or neck support if work requires rough activity


 

 You should NOT:

  • lift heavy objects (even a child over 35 lbs.)
  • do any sports that are rough contact or have you twist your back muscles
  • sit for long periods of time in a hard chair (we don’t want you compressing your back for 24 hours
  • or drink heavy alcohol


 

Basically, treat yourself with love and hold off on any activity that is strenuous on your body for at least 24 to 48 hours.

 

Utilizing an overhead bar system for balance, I apply moderate to ultra deep pressure with my feet in the form of long flowing deep compression strokes. Reconnect as several strokes are full length of body. Full body massage in which I use smooth bare feet to stretch out your spine, separate your fascia, and release trigger points. If you enjoy especially deep massage, I can apply my full body weight. Ashiatsu barefoot massage is equally nice for those who enjoy light work as pressure is entirely adjustable and the broad surface of the foot does not feel pointed or painful. I am able to do deep tissue work with light pressure because this massage style allows me to access deep structures of the body.

Increase range of motion, relieve deep down stress, and elongate the spine to improve posture and decrease pressure on nerves between spinous processes.


This is the massage for you if you can't get deep enough pressure from traditional massage.  Deep pressure without the pain!
