Ashiatsu Video Demonstration

 

Ashiatsu barefoot massage is a modern take on an ancient practice. 

 

Ashiatsu barefoot massage, unlike most other barefoot methods, is performed on the western-friendly massage table instead of a floor mat. The massage table set up allows clients to put their face down comfortably in a face rest (not off to the side). Since ashiatsu is performed on the table, overhead bars are needed for balance.

When broken down, the word “ashi” means foot and “atsu” means pressureHowever, ashiatsu practitioners may also utilize their knees, elbows, palms, and fingers (“shiatsu” translates to “finger pressure” (“shi” meaning finger). Ashiatsu includes a combination of Swedish, myofascial, and compression massage strokes. It includes long gliding strokes associated with Western or Swedish massage and aspects of the ancient Eastern techniques and philosophies of Shiatsu and Ayurveda. Thai Massage techniques, stretches, and compressions may also be used. It has a long and fascinating history but a relatively new and growing following here in the United States. It may also be referred to as barefoot massage, or gravity assisted massage. Ashiatsu barefoot massage is a modern take on an ancient practice.

A Meeting In Central Park With The Oldest Living Yoga Teacher In The World. ~ Photographed by Robert Sturman

She’s a very cool lady.

Something so poignant occurred—she thanked me. This light filled 93-year-old, beautiful, intelligent, sharp, woman, thanked me (three times) for being patient with her while she got into her poses and we made art together.

Where do I have to be? What do I have to do? Who am I not to be patient?

 

Master Tao Porchon Lynch, a 93-year-old yoga master, ballroom dancer, oenophile (lover of wine) and former actress and model will be inducted into the Guinness Book of World Records for being the oldest living yoga teacher—this Sunday, May 13, Mother’s Day. Inspiration beyond comprehension.

 

93 years young

Patience—the gift that gives so much back.

“And still, after all this time, the Sun has never said to the Earth,
‘You owe me.’
Look what happens with love like that.
It lights up the sky.”
