What is "Sokuatsu"?
Sokuatsu is a 'stretch-based' massage in which 95% of the treatment is conducted by the practitioner's feet. The main aim of sokuatsu therapy is to loosen the inner muscles in order to regain a smooth flow of the lymph.
As mentioned above, since this massage is conducted using the feet, you will be able to experience a pressure roughly 3~5 times stronger than a shiatsu-based massage (a type of massage conducted with fingers). That being said, the sole of a foot has a larger mass area than a finger, hence it is less likely that you will experience muscle-tissue tear from the treatment.
What are the results?
The following are some of the many effects you can experience from sokuatsu：
・Your muscles become softer, so you are less likely to injure yourself.
・Toxins will be flushed out of your body, so your body will be less likely to swell up.
・Less toxins mean a healthier body. Your immune system will become stronger.
・Your range of motion could increase by 20% to 40%.
・You will be able to tighten and loosen your pelvis more naturally.
