Ashiatsu - A Japanese word meaning foot (ashi) pressure (atsu). It is generally a deep tissue massage performed with the therapist’s well-trained feet instead of the hands! Ashiatsu feels absolutely amazing while giving a deeper, more therapeutic massage than can usually be given with a therapist’s hands. The therapist does not ‘walk on’ the client, rather, traditional style massage strokes are performed with the feet providing a broader surface area of pressure.
Spider veins are small red, pink, and blue blood vessels that appear most frequently on the face and legs. One of the most successful treatments for spider veins is laser therapy. Lasers deliver concentrated light which heats the blood within the vein. The heating of the blood affects the vessels lining which causes the vessels to constrict and eventually fade from view. The vessels will either disappear, darken or shrink. More than one treatment is necessary to achieve full clearance of leg veins.
