Ashiatsu comes from "ashi" meaning foot "atsu" meaning pressure.
The ABT therapist applies massage techniques directed through her bare feet. Clients receive anything from moderate pressure to very deep work without the pain and discomfort that often accompanies the use of a therapist's thumbs or elbows. This modality has been shown to be especially effective in the treatment of low back pain, however, it is also safe and effective on almost all areas where "hands on" techniques are used. This pressure is broad and more areas of the body can be treated in less time that it would take with the therapist’s hands. Once clients try this modality, they tend not to go back to regular massage.
