Ashiatsu is traced back to Japan in the lineage and tradition of Macrobiotic which was built by Shizuko Yamamoto. Also known as Shizuko Yamamoto’s barefoot; it uses specific techniques to balance the energy system of the client to attain good health and healing. This type of therapy also uses the traditional Chinese medicine in its treatment. Ashiatsu was developed as a form of relaxing massage therapy by Ruthie Hardee. Shiatsu and Thai massage widely use barefoot modalities by walking on the person’s back, shoulder, leg, and feet, which is regarded as common practiced. Pressure is administered with the feet on the persons back, legs and feet. Thai is similar to acupressure and shiatsu but is combined with stretch movements and yoga positions.
