If you are wondering what the long scarves are for, they aren’t scarves, they are Silks that are used by Massage therapists to perform a type of Deep Tissue massage called Ashiatsu. If you read our last Blog, you already know what Ashiatsu is and what it means. If you are catching up, Ashiatsu is rooted in Japanese and broken down, means Foot Pressure.
Therapists use these Silks that are attached to the table to deliver therapeutic myofascial and deep tissue techniques. This fabric strap is used by practitioners for stability and to add tensional and gravitational force to specific manual therapy methods. These methods, combined with the broad contact surface of the foot facilitate less restriction and more ease and relaxation in recipients’ bodies.
We will be adding this service to our menu in the future. We can’t wait to share this with you!
