Best Massage in Cincinnati---Specializing in barefoot deep tissue massage
Saturday, February 09 2008

I have a client who needs such deep work that no other massage therapist has been of much use to him. He originally contacted me to see if barefoot massage would be deeper than hands on work. 

A prime candidate for Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy, "Sam" (not his real name) has extraordinary tension in his upper body. His job entails very specific work for hours at a time. Although not a large man, he requires deeper work than most massage therapists are comfortable giving.

We found recently that the sidelying work was especially beneficial for really working deeply into the upper traps and levator scapulae. Patience is a virtue, as the saying goes. Really sinking in with my foot and holding position while he lay in a sidelying position slowly released tension in the needed areas.

Could I have done this work with my hands? Maybe. I probably would have thumb/wrist injury. And he more than likely wouldn't have gotten the results we've been seeing. I know this because he told me so!

So if you're wondering if taking our classes may be beneficial, I would say, resoundingly, YES!
