Connected Bodywork (Midtown)
Barefoot Massage, usually referred to as Ashiatsu, is a full-body deep pressure massage where the therapist uses their feet as the main tool. Like traditional massage, it’s done on a table with the proper draping. The therapist uses overhead bars and a long strap to maintain balance throughout the session.
Why Barefoot Massage?
By allowing gravity to do the work, Barefoot Massage is beneficial to both client and therapist. We’re able to provide deeper, more consistent pressure that doesn’t cause extra stress on our bodies(less burn out).
At Connected Bodywork, we don’t believe in “No pain, No gain” massages. The shape of the foot contours perfectly to the body so clients experience broad pressure that’s not pokey or pointy like elbows and knuckles. This work is also very relaxing. By working above the client, we can do long, continuous strokes without picking up our foot.
Whether you find yourself asking for more pressure when receiving a hands-on massage, dealing with chronic pain, living an active lifestyle, or needing to add a relaxing break to your wellness routine, Connected Bodywork will cater each session to help reach your goals.
