Watch a Live Demo of Ashiatsu Deep Feet Therapy
When: Monday April 11, 2017, 4:30 – 6:30 pm at Athletic Lab
Ashiatsu Deepfeet Bar Therapy® aka Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy® is a deep compression barefoot massage where the therapist utilizes parallel bars on the ceiling for support and balance. This massage is like no other deep tissue massage you have ever experienced! Using gravity and their body weight, the therapist is able to deliver a consistently deep pressure massage with the feet. Its great for those who suffer from chronic conditions such as back/hip pain, shoulder pain, or scoliosis. It’s also extremely beneficial for crossfitters, runners, cyclists and all types of athletes looking for treatment and prevention of injuries, increased range of motion, fast recovery and long lasting results!

Here is a wonderful example of Cupping Therapy. In the video the therapist uses a method called Fire Cupping. Not a lot of people know about Cupping and are a little apprehensive about trying it but just about everyone loves it & wants more!
At our studio, we don’t use the fire method, not because it isn’t good but we prefer the manual suction cups instead. Contact us if you want to book a Cupping session.
