Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy    $90 for 60 Minutes,  $120 for 90 minutes.  Also known as the deepest, most luxurious massage on earth).  This unique deep pressure work is performed with soothing strokes that are applied to the body using foot pressure to elongate the muscles and spine, release toxins at a very high rate, and relieve tight muscles. Ashiatsu practitioners use soft, clean feet while holding on to two parallel bars above the table for balance and support. The result is deeper pressure without pain or discomfort. This massage modality is ideal for those who desire a gratifying and results-driven treatment, those who have chronic lower and upper back pain, mild scoliosis, physically fit clients and people who can never get enough pressure during a massage.  Ashiatsu  does NOT have to hurt, you control the pressure.
