What are the advantages of Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy?

And why should I take a barefoot massage training class?

They are numerous for both the massage therapist and the client. For the client who craves deep tissue work, they receive the pressure they need. Unlike traditional hands on massage where the therapist often uses pointy elbows and fingers/thumbs, the round surfaces of the feet are used in Ashiatsu. Many clients assume that a good deep tissue massage is going to hurt. It doesn't with our style of barefoot massage. The client should never feel any discomfort--maybe a "hurts so good," but that's about it!

The well trained Ashiatsu barefoot massage therapist uses parallel wooden bars above the massage table for balance and support, and the client lies comfortably on the massage table. Because gravity is used, it's easier for the therapist to control pressure with his/her body weight (as opposed to having to "force" their weight/pressure upon the client).

I have a video regarding the subject uploading to my Facebook site:

Check it out! It's totally informal, but it may give you some more ideas!
