Ashiatsu Barefoot Therapy


Ashiatsu is unlike any deep tissue massage you have ever experienced! The root word 'ashi' means 'foot' and 'atsu' means 'pressure' so together they symbolize 'foot pressure' in a technique that delivers a consistent, deep,  luxurious massage.  Correct application provides deep relaxation and stimulates the lymphatic system of the body. Bars are used overhead for support and balance.

I have found no other technique that melts the tensions away from a muscle the way Ashi does. The slow, consistent pressure relax the nervous system while the long, fluid strokes stretch and elongate even the tightest muscles, without 'muscling' them into submission. All deep tissue work should feel this relaxing. This is a truly amazing technique! Click here to read what one client has to say.

I am an advanced level Ashiatsu practioner. I have received many hours of instruction and practice on this modality including the use of both feet for added pressure. I am certified by the founder and work very hard to make each session pleasurable and safe for every client. Beware of therapists practicing forms of barefoot massage without the proper training. This endangers you and puts you at risk for injury. If you are interested in learning more about this amazing work, please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have. We can work together to see if this work is right for you.

You can also visit the founder's website at to learn more about Ashiatsu, training, the founder and how it works.
