Socially Acceptable

I realize I'm not the worlds best blogger. I think it's my reading narcolepsy that's to blame. If I read a lot, I fall asleep. If I actually do take the time to sit down and write something, it'll be so long that you'll fall asleep. Naps are nice, but they are kind of inconvenient if it happens face first into your laptop in a Starbucks.

So while I'm busy ~not~ keeping this blog super bogged down with posts, you can follow me on Twitter and Facebook. Whether you are a client of Heeling Sole, a massage therapist interested in learning more about Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy, or a graduate of one of my classes, I'll have a little bit of something for everyone here on the blog (occasionally) but more often it'll be on my social networks, in 140 characters or less.

Update for 2011 Texas Ashiatsu classes

Just a quick update: December's Barefoot Basics is now full, which will cap off a total of 64 new Ashiatsu therapists trained in this year in that class by me! Congratulations to those of you who made it in and are (or will be soon) using a great new tool to massage with -your feet!

I can't fit any more Barefoot Basics classes in this year, unless someone figures out how to clone me, but I did squeeze in an Ashi-Thai on December 15-16th. If you want those toes trained by 12/31/11, that really really is your last chance in Texas!

Texas two steppin' double header

I'm on a boat!

So I'm taking this amazing class this weekend - one I've wanted to take for years. I've had the book, read it cover to cover endless times, lost it, replaced it, read all the articles in every massage publication and have watched every webinar by Tom Myers, now I finally get to learn it "hands on" up in Austin. It's the Myofascial Meridians class from Anatomy Trains. Woo! 

There are alot of examples showing how the body is built like a sailboat, and it got me thinking..... What do you call Ashiatsu on a boat?

 

ASHI-YAUGHT-SU  ;)

 

Hardee har har. (There's another hidden joke right there) In anycase, please enjoy this video of the Fascianado himself, Tom Myers, as he takes you sailing to describe how the body is built like a sailboat.

Ashi-Thai demonstration video

Ashi-Thai is performed without any oils or creams, and requires the client to wear loose flexible clothing, allowing the therapist to stretch the client's passive body beyond its holding patterns. The client relaxes on the massage table, and will feel many gentle compressions along lines of muscle tension. With each long, slow stretch the client will feel the stress, pain and tension melt away. Ashi-Thai revitalizes the body, mind and soul leaving the client deeply centered and at peace. Watch this video of Jeni and the founder of Ashiatsu, Ruthie Hardee demonstrating and explaining the differences between Traditional Thai massage and Ashi-Thai.

  

Ashi-Thai services are available at Heeling Sole Barefoot Massage in San Antonio, Texas. Try the 90 minute session to experience the best possible "Blissed Out" state of mind... Visit http://heelingsole.com/services-ashithai.html to read about the benefits of receiving this style of bodywork. You can also schedule your appointment instantly online there, AND purchase a gift certificate to print or email to your buddy.

Massage Therapists: are you ready to learn Ashi-Thai for yourself!? It's two days of feet-on fun learning a full body series of easy-to-do traditional Thai massage stretches that have been adapted for use on the Ashiatsu bars. Save your wrists and back, learn to use your strong legs and hips to bend clients into pretzels! Visit http://heelingsole.com/workshops-ashithai.html to read more and register!

1 month, 2 feet, 3 states!

June has been a busy busy month for me and Ashiatsu! The 1st weekend of June was sun-tan Ashiatsu up at the Miller Creek Lavendar farm, where I set up my portable bars early in the morning to massage the DetermiNation runners of a Womens 5K/10k race! It was barefoot massage and mimosa's from Barefoot Wine, a great sunblock & lavendar scented morning in the hill country!

242646_10150195197859671_225106514670_6994073_4271695_o

The 2nd weekend brought me and Ashiatsu to downtown San Antonio at Hemisfair Park for Pride Fest, this time we had shade and some real fun music to dance on your back with! One of my local Ashiatsu students came to help, and we had a fabulous time with our rainbow-clad toes. Check out Denise on the bars: 

Img_19901

Then week number 3 brought me to New Orleans for a national scooter rally called Amerivespa! My husband and I rode our scooters around the big easy all week, and on Saturday I had arranged for some local Ashiatsu therapists to massage us and the other Amerivespa attendees, spreading the gospel of Ashiatsu to those who need it most! I worked a short bit and filled in on the massage chair at one point, but rebelled and used my feet. ;) This was by far, (so far) the best week of 2011 for me!

As soon as I got home and somewhat rested from New Orleans, it was time to hop a flight out to Orlando for the Florida State Massage Therapy Association convention. I met up with my fellow Ashiatsu instructor from Florida, Pilar, and the founder of Ashiatsu from Denver, Ruthie, and we demonstrated our work to hundreds of massage therapists! I met so many amazing people in the massage field that I've only ever emailed or read about before in magazines, I was a little bit star struck! By the way... Pilar and I made Top Therapists of 2011 ;)    (so did everyone else who stopped by the Massage Magazine booth, hah hah!)

 

So now that June is calming down, I'll be sticking around San Antonio for the next two months. Schedule a massage with me while you can, or try to squeeze into one of my local classes before I jet out again! I'm looking forward to my September Houston Ashiatsu class trip, where I'll be meeting up with a fun Houston scooter group to ride around with, and in October I'm heading up to Portland Oregon for the national American Massage Therapy Association convention with 4 other Ashiatsu instructors. Fun!

Heeling Sole is listed on Yelp, Foursquare and Facebook Places, so you can tell your friends that you are about to get a rad barefoot massage AND you'll receive special offers! In the month of June, "check in" to receive 5 minutes of Zen! This means that after your massage is over, I'll dim the lights and leave so that you can take a nap. It's a great chance to marinate in your massage for a few minutes, let your body feel the changes that took place, and absorb the good juju. No stress, just zen. I'll come back and wake you up in 5 minutes. The world can wait: just marinate!

Ashiatsu for Athletes

Last weekend I massaged at a cycling/sports expo on the finish line of the Hill Country 600 - a 375 mile qualifier for the Race Across America. The winner of that race, Marko Baloh, who finished on an injury but yet still in record time (19hrs. 14min. 23sec!!) received an Ashiatsu session from me and was pleasantly surprised at what Ashiatsu had to offer! I spent the whole day with some awesome people, especially my booth buddy Nydia! (Who you should all go take a yoga class with:http://www.nydiasyogatherapy.com/


See the full photo gallery on PosterousThe following article was originally "feetured" on a blog for runners in San Antonio, see the original here: http://werunsanantonio.com/ashiatsu-for-athletes
Ashiatsu for Athletes
You can't count the benefits of sports massage on just one hand – boosts performance, breaks down scar tissue, prevents injuries and loss of mobility, reduces delayed onset muscle soreness, decreases anxiety, enhances microcirculation, improvement of tissue elasticity  but can you count it all on both feet?!? You can with Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy, a style of barefoot massage which includes a dynamic range of additional benefits for the sporting life. 
Ashi-what!? It’s pronounced “Ahhh-shiatsu”. “Ashi” means foot, and “-atsu” is pressure.  In this style of massage, the therapist uses gravitational forces and distributes their body weight by holding onto bars in the ceiling, using their feet to deliver the strokes, applying painless pressure directly onto your body. Ashiatsu is not just walking on your back; you will feel a deep, broad, flowing centrifugal pressure that engages the fascia throughout your whole body, loosening adhered tissue, opening tissue membranes, which allows fluids and nutrients to follow more thorough pathways. Additionally, compression of soft tissue is applied throughout the session, helping to release spasm, muscle contraction and tension, always working within your perfect range of pressure. It works fast, typically just 20 minutes of Ashiatsu accomplishes the physical benefits that occur in a 60-minute session of a more traditional style of bodywork. 
Ashiatsu effectiveness comes from treating all layers of your tissue and your entire body as a whole, resulting in a calmed fight-or-flight response and a dramatic dilation of blood vessels. By massaging you with the larger surface area of a foot – in comparison to a hand or forearm – and by accessing the deeper layers of your tissue without the sensation of pokey pain that triggers muscle guarding, the rate of post-event recovery is faster. The depth is more consistent throughout the entire length of the muscle, curbing pain responses and flooding the body with new sensory information to help it evaluate itself and begin to heal. 
To encourage pre or post-workout low intensity exercise, passive stretches are incorporated to improve your tissue elasticity and reduce spasms. Ashi-Thai – another form of barefoot massage developed from Ashiatsu and Thai massage ­– offers a unique chance to rest, relax and recuperate from strenuous activities while the therapist maneuvers your limbs and body into deep stretches that you may not be able to achieve on your own. If you need your Psoas stretched, IT Band unbound, Soleus/Gastroc’s drained and your spine decompressed, this massage will do it all. The benefits of Ashiatsu combined with the passive stretching techniques that are included in Ashi-Thai offer a well-rounded holistic approach to aid in improving your performance and maintaining overall health. 
Track down Jeni Spring, LMT from Heeling Sole Barefoot Massage in San Antonio if you’d like to try Ashiatsu or Ashi-Thai and feel how it benefits you. Jeni is highly trained and certified in these styles of massages, and also offers in-depth training Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy to other massage therapists (in case you don’t want to leave your favorite LMT!)
