Ashiatsu – Signature Male’s New “Must Try” Massage!

Watch out, massage fans! We now have a certified Ashiatsu Massage Therapist!

des moines ashiatsu massge therapyAshiatsu also referred to as “barefoot massage” is exactly that, the therapists utilizing their feet to enhance the massage. Claire Davis who has been a massage therapist at Signature Male for several years recently underwent a week long certification program to learn the technique and has since put in over 50 practicum hours perfecting the technique.

Steve Garrels, Owner of Signature Male says:

As someone who has had more massages then most, being in the spa industry, I must say that once you receive an Ashiatsu Massage it makes it hard to go back to a regular Swedish or Deep Tissue technique.

This technique allows the therapist to more evenly apply deep pressure to muscles that require more force than a hand can exert. The foot is also longer which allows the pressure to be more evenly applied across a larger area versus the “pointy pressure” you feel with fingers, knuckles, or elbows. This allows the muscle to be worked all at the same time which increases the circulation of blood to the muscle and induces the muscle to relax as a whole.

People who are after a relaxing massage need NOT be weary. Claire has spent many hours perfecting the amount of pressure needed while also incorporating techniques of the Swedish Massage into the Ashiatsu massage, so the results of the massage are exactly what every massage should be and that is to work the muscles that are tight and then relax the stress away!

This massage technique simply is the best out there!
