Ashiatsu is a barefoot massage technique using deep gliding, and sliding Swedish strokes by the therapist feet. It is a western version of an ancient form of body work dating back thousands of years from culture across Asia, India and Africa. The client lays on a comfortable massage table while the therapist uses their feet to massage the client. The therapist uses ashiatsu bars attached to the ceiling for balance and support.
Therapeutic massage is for those who want to relax, and relieve stress. The technique utilizes long strokes and soft kneading strokes to aid the body in relaxing and recuperating. These strokes allow your body to release some of the pent up stress by addressing nerve compression, tender points and aid in the circulation of the body. Many clients leave feeling refreshed, and focused. What you will find at Angie’s Massage is exactly that. I create a relaxing environment designed to aid in your overall rejuvenation. I will help you relax through sight, sound, smell and gentle touch. I will also listen to your specific ailments, and customize your treatment to deliver focus on those points of stress and tension. I am here to help you feel whole again. To learn more about my therapeutic massage, or to schedule an appointment, please contact us.
