About the Instructor
I have to pinch myself sometimes when I think about how long I have been practicing bodywork. 28 years and counting! It has been quite the journey. They say the average career span of a massage therapist can be 5-7 years. How have I lasted this long?? Ashiatsu barefoot massage!! After 10 years of practicing deep tissue massage, I was looking for alternative modalities because my arms, hands, and back were constantly bothering me.
In 2002 I began my barefoot journey, and I’ve never looked back! Three years later barefoot massage inspired me to go back to school to the Dr. Ida Rolf Institute in Boulder, CO and receive my Rolfing certification. I love structural work and being able to use my feet and adapt it to work with the fascia is incredible! In 2018, I completed my 168 hr Advanced Rolfing™️ certification. Learning barefoot bodywork has changed my life and extended my career beyond my wildest expectations! Read more about my experience in my blog 'Massage, Rolfing and Life Experiences'.
I've been an Ashiatsu barefoot massage instructor for 12 years now and I love teaching other therapists the possibilities of barefoot massage. It's not easy, nor glamorous, and quite time-consuming. But it's extremely rewarding to help massage therapists find hope after they thought their career was over. Or to help breathe new life in a boring Swedish slumber massage practice for those fresh out of massage school. I also own and run Bull City Soles Massage and Bodywork studio where our therapists provide barefoot massage EVERY DAY. We have the experience to help you transform your practice into a full-time barefoot massage practice. Register now to begin YOUR ashiatsu massage training and get ready to be blown away!
