BAREFOOT HANDS IS THE HOME OF THE ORIGINAL DEEPFEET BAR THERAPY ® IN MADISON

The Original Deepfeet Bar Therapy was also known as Ashiatsu. "Ashi" in Japanese means "foot." "Atsu" means "pressure." Deepfeet Bar Therapy uses gravitational force  combining centrifugal and centripetal movements to create a structural change in chronic soft tissue damage, instead of the hands . 

 

Al Poliarco, is a Certified Deepfeet Bar Therapy Practitioner. He uses parallel bars, attached to the ceiling, for balance and proper weight distribution. The larger size and padding of his soles provide a push-pull-pump technique that is not only deeper, but more comfortable than traditional hands massage. Feet, compared to hands, have a greater affect on the client's parasympathetic nervous system, which allows the client to dive deeper into relaxation. It provides deep relaxation while stimulating the lymphatic and circulatory systems of the body. Treatment helps relieve muscle pain, increases range of motion and flexibility, improves posture and creates a state of well-being. ​

 

Deepfeet Bar Therapy is incredibly effective with profound results! Al highly recommend this treatment for everyone particularly to those active individuals, athletes, and larger people who need a stronger treatment. One Deepfeet Bar Therapy session can give the same result as two or three consecutive Western style massages. The forces from the broad pressure of Al's foot spread the body open and allow him to work deeper. Any blockage or stiffness in the muscles, joints, or spine releases. Your body feels lighter with more freedom of movement, and freedom from pain. The Deepfeet Bar Therapy works systemically on many body systems - the myofascia, the lymphatic, the nervous, the cardiovascular, and perhaps the endocrine system. Al's Deepfeet Bar Therapy routines will work on the whole body, while honing on any particular area of the body.
