Get to know your massage: Ashiatsu, Part 1

What is Ashiatsu?

The name of our specialty deep tissue massage technique is Ashiatsu Barefoot Massage, but we tend to just call it Ashiatsu, or “Ashi” for short. The phrase “Ashi” means foot, and -“atsu” means pressure, in Japanese. In plain English, it translates to “pure awesome!” Ashiatsu is a western spin on an ancient form of bodywork, with roots dating back thousands of years from cultures across Asia, India, Africa and the Pacific Rim, but put to use with a modern myofascial, sports, injury treatment based intention underfoot.


What is Ashiatsu? It’s San Antonio’s Deepest Deep Tissue massage, and you need to try it!

Ashiatsu is a barefoot massage technique using deep strokes from the massage therapists’ feet – but it’s not just backwalking – Ashiatsu is more like bodysurfing in that we surf across, around and over your muscles rather than just stand on them.

At Heeling Sole in San Antonio, Texas, we specialize in a deeper than deep tissue massage that can potentially be as deep as each individual therapists body weight plus gravitational forces. If you have had your kids walk on your back, just wait till you get under a trained professionals feet!

Check out what San Antonio is saying about Heeling Sole’s Ashiatsu sessions:

“…She made the environment comfortable and followed through with the best massage I have ever received (and I have had many). It was incredible how she was able to incorporate detailed work with her feet. The level of skill needed to provide this type of massage should not be underestimated…”

“…I cannot believe how much better this is than a traditional “fist and elbow” deep tissue massage!   This technique is immediately relaxing (a little weird at first with someone dancing on your back) but I can’t recommend this enough.  This is perfect for anyone wanting something more effective than a deep tissue massage… or who shies away from massages because they are painful / uncomfortable.  With barefoot massage it is immediately relaxing and relieving, you can feel and hear the knots popping away right away.  And it feels fantastic, like your body is being kneaded and worked like a heavenly piece of cookie dough.”

Ashiatsu training coming up for Massage Therapists

Are you a Massage Therapist in Texas looking for a way to end the aches, pains and strains – not only in your clients body, but in your own while you massage? Hours upon hours each week of traditional hands-on massage can really take a toll on your thumbs, hands, wrists, shoulders, neck…. even with excellent body mechanics, it’s very easy to get hurt while providing the massages you love to do.

Take a look at this newsletter, I think you need to read it. 

I’ve seen so many therapists revive their massage careers after learning Ashiatsu. So many had achey-breakey feeling bodies, burnt out and bored brains, and a flatlined massage practice with no edge or niche to differentiate themselves from the massage crowd. Ashiatsu changes all that.

You’ll literally be raising the bar on your practice, you’ll have a unique and advanced massage modality in your toolbelt to grow into, AND you’ll be giving your body a break so that you can use gravity and your body weight to pull off the deepest, most luxurious massage in your town, that clients will LOVE.

Try it, seriously, you might like it. It’s worked out pretty awesome for me! 😉

…I’ve got a class in April with your name on it.

See you soon!
