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!
