Barefoot Massage Therapy: A Respected Alternative Pain Management Approach
Barefoot massage therapy is taking the alternative pain management industry by storm. It has been written about in countless magazines and featured on CNN, The Discovery Channel, Great Spa Getaways, and The Travel Channel. High-end spas such as Canyon Ranch, The Bellagio, and the Golden Door are just a few of the many that offer this unique massage service. At Somatic Sole, we are excited to bring barefoot massage services to the St. Louis region. Our primary barefoot massage therapies are FasciAshi and Thai yoga massage.
What is FasciAshi Ashiatsu Massage?
Have you received massage therapy before and thought, “My muscles are still tight,” and left wondering what you paid for? At Somatic Sole, our FasciAshi barefoot massage will provide physical relief as well as mind-body balance critical to living a long, healthy, joyful life.
The Massage Technique
During FasciAshi Ashiatsu massage, we glide on your back, holding bars on the ceiling for balance. Using our clean, soft feet, we use flowing strokes to loosen, lengthen, and smooth tight fascia, muscles, ligaments, and tendons. During your session, the deep relaxation you’ll feel within minutes lasts long after your appointment. Ashiatsu (the barefoot technique) is the perfect marriage of pressure and relaxation. Because we are suspended above you, using our feet to perform the massage, you can enter a trance-like state because there are no distractions with changing sides or moving around. You can learn more about the benefits of this technique here.
We are honored and humbled to be the premier Ashiatsu Barefoot Massage Studio in the greater St. Louis region, certified through the one and only FasciAshi program.
What is Thai Yoga Massage?
Thai yoga combines massage with active stretching. As a powerful system of yoga therapy, it includes acupressure, gentle stretching, and massage. Like different yoga postures, this type of massage works on the muscular and skeletal systems as well as the nervous, endocrine, and lymphatic systems.
The Somatic Sole Massage Technique
During our Thai yoga massage sessions, clients stay clothed. Also, we use a mat-based technique during which we use our feet to help compress and stretch muscles. You can learn more about the benefits of this technique here.
