Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy

 Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy® (AOBT) is an ancient form of barefoot massage using a deep compression effleurage gliding over the body.  Gravitational force is combined with centrifugal and centripetal movements to bring about structural change in chronic soft tissue damage.  This form of effleurage relieves muscle pain through a push, pull, pumping effect on the muscles of the client.  Developed by Ruthie Hardee Piper in 1995, she combined the elements of traditional Thai massage, barefoot Shiatsu from Japan, and Keralite massage from Southern India.  Although the roots of AOBT are definitely Asian, the technique and application are truly western.  Two parallel bars are used overhead by the therapist for balance and control over the client while they apply soft clean feet for the barefoot massage.
