Putting the Ahhh in Ashiatsu.
Looking for the deepest "deep tissue" massage in town?
It's time to let me, Hillary at Gaia Bodywork sweep, swirl, and relax your muscles with barefoot bar therapy.
Wanna know why? Well...after a few of our barefoot bar therapy treatments, you can expect to experience better posture and easier movement as well as sweet relief from muscular pain!
Here's the deal...
Barefoot Bar Therapy is a massage that uses deep compression strokes which glide over your body. Gravity combined with centrifugal + centripetal movements can create a structural change in chronic soft tissue damage. We use compression strokes along the lumbar region and paraspinals that can relieve muscle spasms and open the intervertebral foramen. This helps give the surrounding nerves more space and relieves any pressure on the nerve that might be causing pain.
The movements used in my barefoot bar therapy massage actually decompress and help to elongate your spine. These movements can dramatically stretch shortened muscles relieving discomfort and back pain.
It also provides a deeply relaxing experience + is often referred to as the deepest, most luxurious massage on the planet.
During a barefoot bar therapy session, we use a monitoring technique called the "pain scale"
to ensure that the client is always in charge of the amount of pressure being used by the therapist. While barefoot bar therapy is a form of deep tissue work, the client should never feel pain.
It's a deeply relaxing treatment and we like to keep it that way!
Don't fear the foot :) You as the client are always in charge during the massage.
Sound good? Great. Now all you have to do is schedule. It's an experience that you don't want to miss if you're a deep tissue massage lover and is by far my favorite massage to give and receive.
I'll see you soon!
