Of course, Ashiatsu is a modality that uses your feet. The client can be on the massage table or on a mat on the floor. For this portion, you will learn the seated routine. So, all you need is a face cradle and lotion. We use Elixir of Life Alchimiste, organic and natural deep tissue massage cream. And a chair if you prefer.
Comparatively, the barefoot strokes are long, deep and very relaxing. Use an antibacterial wipe for the body. And be sure your feet are nice an smooth before putting them on your client.
Fijian massage strokes are short. You the therapist sits through the entire routine, so you will need a chair. Unlike, Ashiatsu, the client wears clothes. And you might want to use a mat with a face cradle.
In this case, each stroke is very deep. Furthermore, you can wear socks. Or just make sure your feet are nice and smooth and use an antibacterial wipe to clean them. Here the moves are neuro-muscular like.
Similarly, Barefoot Stretch Massage is done with client fully dressed. In addition, it is an effective way to stretch your client. But instead of getting on your hands and knees, you will stand erect. Instead of picking up body parts with your hands, you will use your feet. And use the back of two chairs for balance.
