What Is Ashiatsu?
In the Japenese language “Ashi” translates to foot and “Atsu” into pressure. Ashiatsu DeepFeet Bar Therapy, is a barefoot massage technique in which the therapist delivers deep, broad, consistent pressure while utilizing their feet and body weight. Working with gravity instead of against it, Ashiatsu therapists are able to provide an effective therapeutic massage without causing pain or discomfort to themselves or the receiving client.

This a just a hand full of conditions that would be contraindicated for receiving an ashiatsu treatment. However, a certified Deepfeet Therapist will have full knowledge of all contraindications for ashiatsu and how to best address their client needs.
