Ashiatsu Massage Aerial Intro
Ashiatsu massage, a thousands of years old tradition, has gained a renewed popularity. Chronic back pain, neck, shoulder and wrist issues have curtailed many a massage career, keeping our global community busy seeking methods equally healthy for bodies of healers as for their patients. Ashiatsu massage not only offers massage therapists permanent relief from these ailments. Ashiatsu massage indeed has quickly gained a following of clients who enjoy the deeper broader pressure with longer strokes. Table massage while still used by ashiatsu therapists has now become their dancing platform to delight their clientele with a totally unique experience.
So what is aerial ashiatsu and is it better?
Aerial Ashiatsu New Dimension
Aerial ashiatsu massage applies all the same concepts of traditional ashiatsu, but allows the therapists to explore and customize the lean of their body to benefit their clients. Silks become extensions of arms and harnesses to support the back, allowing the therapist to drop to lower angles and explore new maneuvers. Aerial ashiatsu allows therapists to innovate and mix up their routine comfortably with good form and biomechanically sound moves. An ability to preserve and nurture your own body makes the difference between a less than 5 year massage career and one that evolves with you over lifetime! The therapist can “weave” the silks hanging down to help support his or her body. Many times such weaves allow better contact and pressure as well as make it possible to hit areas that would normally go skipped as not to wear out the therapist. Clients also report aerial ashiatsu as feeling more fluid and smooth than traditional ashiatsu.
Video Tutorial What to Expect
This aerial ashiatsu massage video tutorial explores two kinds of weaves or harness variations you create with your two silks. In the first part of the video I demonstrate what kinds of angles of pressure and movement fluidity I can achieve while sitting in weave. Next I show you how to get into the weave and movements possible in that weave.
I like to keep my tutorials concise, so I also made a separate video tutorial featuring a third kind of weave, the knee sail. Knee sail, a very simple weave, has several variations and therefore a variety of applications up and down the body.
