The Tummy Temple is known for providing unique and effective services that are hard to find in most wellness centers. Here we go again with Ashiatsu, deep tissue barefoot massage! This is an answer to prayer for all of those people craving for someone to “walk” on their backs. The massage is performed by a practitioner using her feet while balancing herself with two bars suspended above the massage table. Part of the training includes foot hygiene and professional level pedicures so no worries about stinky feet interfering with your relaxation! The strokes are long and smooth with varying pressure to meet the needs of the diverse varieties of muscle tension found along neck, shoulders, and spine. Other integrative massage techniques may be applied for a full body relaxation experience that might leave you guilty of drooling.
This therapy is perfect for anyone who really needs the pressure of a full body to totally unwind. It is an incredibly grounding therapy for those heady people who have a hard time “being aware” of their bodies. It is very difficult to resist total relaxation as the practitioner gracefully transfers her weight into your musculoskeletal system pressing your energy deeply into your body. It is also especially beneficial for those seeking to lengthen their spine and release chronic postural patterns.
