Having a massage therapist walk on your back may sound extreme, but if you’re looking for a deep and therapeutic massage, ashiatsu is a wonderful experience. If you’re worried about the safety of this technique, the therapists at Cedar Massage are highly skilled and can assure you that it is safe, effective, and provides the same great benefits as a traditional deep tissue massage. With the use of poles to provide balance and to control the amount of pressure being applied, you can always let your therapist know if the pressure is too heavy.

The use of the therapist’s feet during an ashiatsu massage provides them with an opportunity to leverage a wider surface and provide a deep and relaxing experience that is harder to achieve using only their hands. Using their body weight to apply more controlled pressure, trigger points and dense muscle groups can be kneaded to relieve stress, elongate muscle fibers, and reduce tension.

At Cedar Massage in Lithia Springs, we are dedicated to providing our customers with an experience like no other. If you struggle with chronic pain, stress, or tight shoulders or back, the back walking technique can provide the relief you’re looking for. Our massage therapists are trained in several techniques, including Swedish massage and hot stone massage. If you have any questions or want to schedule your appointment, contact our team today!
