Ashiatsu massage therapy is a Western adaption of the early ashiatsu massage technique that was used by Buddhist monks. "Ashiatsu" means "foot pressure." Even though the roots of this bodywork are Asian, the technique and application has been updated to better fit the current client needs.
Spa on the Lake proudly offers ashiatsu massage therapy by a certified ashiatsu instructor. The modern form of ashiatsu is performed by rhythmically stroking pressure over your body.
The rhythmic strokes include a combination of gravitational force and deep compression to relieve pain through a Swedish massage and a push-pull-pumping effect on your muscles.
If you suffer from chronic back pain, fibromyalgia, or restless leg syndrome, ashiatsu massage therapy is extremely beneficial because of the constant foot pressure strokes that are done along the lumbar region of your back, which includes the gluteal and leg muscles.
