Because I am the "Senior Training Instructor" for, I occasionally have to change my barefoot massage ashiatsu class schedule. In December, I get  have to go to St. Petersburg, FL to teach our Advanced Ashiatsu class with fellow instructor Pilar.

Thus, my December class has been changed to the end of November. New dates are now November 29-December 1 for Barefoot Basics and December 2 for Anterior/Side-lying.

Oh, I almost forgot to mention that we'll be presenting Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy at the World Massage Conference in November as well!

Ashiatsu Barefoot Massage Saves Career

Had it not been for Ashiatsu barefoot massage, I would not be a massage therapist today. The average career span of a massage therapist is only 5 years! At the end of 3 years, I was already experiencing pain in my wrists and an elbow.

In the summer of 2002, I read an article about Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy in Massage Therapy Journal. (I still have that article, as a matter of fact!).

A short while later, I flew to Houston to take the class from the founder. About a month after class, I found out I was pregnant--within about 4 months, I could barely bend over to do hands on massge because I couldn't breathe.

So I did barefoot massage, and a lot of it. In fact, many of my clients appreciated my additional weight. It turns out I was having twins-hence the not being able to bend over issue.

I worked until I was 32 weeks pregnant with the girls and took an early maternity leave not because I couldn't do massage any more, but because I was convinced I would deliver the babies early (which I didn't. They were born full term at 38.5 weeks).

Had I not been able to do ashi, as we call it, I wouldn't have been able to work for a long, long time.

So if you're a female therapist interested in having babies but still want to work, I'd highly recommend giving ashiatsu barefoot massage a go!

I teach on a regular basis in Cincinnati but will travel for groups of 8.
p.s. Happy 17th birthday today to my 2nd oldest daughter, Naomi. She was not even 1.5 years old when I started massage school!

Remember me if you need a deep tissue massage! I have some times available in the next few weeks! It's been a while since I have had a slow week, so take advantage of it while you can.

Here's the link to my site with information about all the massages I do. Massage sessions can be as short as 30 minutes or as long as 2 hours.

My office is located in Mt. Healthy (how appropriate is that?), a little northwest of downtown Cincinnati. It's quiet and peaceful with lots of natural light.

If you've never had a massage before, you can click on my What to Expect page. I teach Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy, Ashi-Thai and Bamboo-Fusion and am also certified in prenatal/pregnancy massage.

Want a massage from someone who's reasonably priced and experienced? I've been licensed for massage since January of 1999, so you're looking at the right place

I'm teachig a private Ashi-Thai class soon. If you have at least 2 therapists, I happily teach private barefoot massage classes to you and a pal! Contact me for more information. You can also visit my website, for more information about classes in general.

Want to learn barefoot Thai massage? Some traditional Thai therapists complain about strain on their wrists and back. There's none of that with our modification to Thai massage.

You can also learn barefoot massage, "ashiatsu bar massage" as some people call it, in a private class. With our style of barefoot massage, the client lies on a massage table while the trained massage therapist massages (using clean and soft feet) holds onto overhead bars.
