Ashiatsu means "foot pressure", effective strokes that are broad, evenly maintained pressure that can be light, medium or deep. The foot fits the contours of the body bringing relief to tight, sore muscles and really relaxing the entire body! The foot pressure gives the client a very comfortable deep tissue massage. Most people say they love ashiatsu more than a massage with hands, forearms and elbows!! (I hear this every day I work!) 

I have been practicing ashiatsu since 2007 and became an Instructor in 20012. Ashiatsu has become my specialty. It is why clients come back to see me and why they refer their family and friends to me! The best part is that it is easy on my body! 

I truly enjoy sharing my experience and expertise in the art of barefoot massage with massage therapists like YOU!  

My classes are held in a professional setting. Students are given respect and personal attention to assist you in learning with passion. This massage technique takes practice and I want my students to be the BEST!  

Please contact me if you have any questions, or if you'd like to set up an ashiatsu appointment with me.

A few side notes: Ashiatsu is absolutely the best for work on the hips and legs! The foot fits around the scapula and gets into the terres- lats atatchments so effectively! Broad deep strokes up the erector spinae group is oh so easy! I love being an ashiatsu therapist!
