Frequently Asked Questions

This type of massage differs from traditional massage in that the therapist primarily uses their feet instead of their hands to apply pressure to the client’s body. This technique allows for broader, deeper pressure compared to traditional massage, as the therapist can use their body weight to deliver consistent pressure over a larger area. Additionally, it often incorporates the use of overhead bars for balance and support, allowing the therapist to adjust the pressure and angle of their feet more effectively.

During a session, the client typically lies face down on a massage table, while the therapist stands on the table and uses overhead bars for support. The therapist then applies deep, gliding strokes using their feet, adjusting the pressure and technique based on the client’s preferences and needs. The therapist may also use their hands, elbows, or props to complement the footwork and address specific areas of tension.

There isn’t typically extensive preparation required before receiving this type of massage. However, clients may be advised to wear comfortable clothing and communicate any specific areas of concern or preferences to the therapist before the session. Additionally, clients should inform the therapist of any medical conditions or contraindications they may have to ensure a safe and effective treatment.
