The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Sarasota Introduces Aerial Silk Massage

SARASOTA, Fla., Oct. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Sarasota is raising the bar – or rather, the aerial circus silks – with a new, first-of-its-kind massage.

The Spa is introducing the Aerial Silk Massage, a traditional Ashiatsu – or foot pressure – massage, employing the 3,000 year-old techniques of the Far East, but adding a modern and Sarasota-themed element.

During traditional Ashiatsu massage, a therapist holds onto ceiling bars to maintain her balance while using her feet to perform deep tissue work on the client's back and body. As a nod to Sarasota's circus history as the winter home of the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus, during the Aerial Silk Massage the therapist will hold onto aerial silks similar to what a circus aerialist would use during a routine to stabilize herself.  

"The Aerial Silk Massage combines the art and healing properties of Ashiatsu with a truly engaging experience of mind and body for a treatment that helps not only aches and pains, but also the guest's energy or 'chi'," said Veljko Savic, Spa Director, The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Sarasota. "This treatment may seem unconventional to a casual spa guest, but the use of body weight and gravity of the therapist make the Aerial Silk Massage the best way to get a true, deep tissue treatment and body realignment."

Guests who visit the hotel's luxurious spa will be invited to relax and unwind in the Spa's relaxation room, where light snacks and fresh fruit-flavored waters are available. A therapist will lead the guest into the candlelit Aerial Silk Massage room, where she will see the dramatic, beautiful silk panels suspended from the ceiling. The guest will then be asked to lie on the massage bed on the floor, and the therapist will start the massage with long, deep strokes that may feel like a dance. Later in the massage, the therapist will concentrate on specific areas of the body by controlling her weight distribution using the silks as a stabilizer. Guest can choose different therapeutic massage oil, like lavender, eucalyptus or Florida Orange and one of four music categories: water, nature, ambient and multicultural, to customize their experience.

Ashiatsu massage helps relieve pain and stress, treat spinal problems, and improve posture. It is particularly popular among sports enthusiasts, whose musculature may prevent penetration during a regular hand massage.
