A barefoot modality that delivers myofascial release with every stroke. Sarga is a a very slow and controlled form of massage that hooks into a thin fibrous connective tissue that runs the length of the body called myofascia. Due to the slow nature of this work, a minimum of 90 minutes is needed to perform a full body massage. An hour is ideal for upper body or back side only.
Want to try barefoot but afraid to commit to a whole session? Whether you choose 10 minutes of barefoot, or 30, this hybrid option of barefoot and "traditional" hand massage, may be your answer! Sessions usually begin with Sarga strokes and slowly introduce Ashiatsu, another barefoot modality. If you love it and want to have your whole session barefoot, just say the word! If its just not your thing, let me know and we can finish with hands! This is a no-pressure, truly custom massage!
