      Ashiatsu is a type of massage therapy in which the therapist walks on the client's back, using bars and other props to vary pressure. Learning to perform Ashiatsu massage requires advanced training because improper technique could cause damage to the client's spine.


      Zento Massotherapy offers two types of Ashiatsu massage.

      One is based on traditional chinese techniques and targets several pressure points. It is performed in both China and Japan by practitioners who have been trained to take a whole-body approach to wellness. Basically, the client lies on the floor wearing loose clothing while the practitioner walks across his or her back in order to target specific pressure points.

      The other one utilizes traditional Asian skills and uses massage as a relaxation tool. This type of Ashiatsu can address muscle pain and tension. This version is done with the client lying on a table, while covered with a sheet. The massage therapist uses a set of parallel bars above the massage table to support him or herself while essentially dancing on the client's back. The intensity of the massage can be adjusted to the needs of the client.
