I imagine you would like to know a little about me! I am the owner of Barefoot Space, I am a Certified Ashiatsu DeepFeet Therapist (barefoot massage therapist) and also a Yoga Teacher. I am a sophisticated career therapist with many years of experience. I am dedicated to offering the best Barefoot Massage and bodywork techniques and I believe that yoga should be available and affordable to everyone and every body.
I am trained in several different massage modalities, but I dig my feet into Ashiatsu DeepFeet Therapy (barefoot massage) and of course Yoga. Previously I was a contractor for WAAF Sports and Fitness Center in Wiesbaden Germany from 2006 - Jan 2014, where I worked primarily with US military and Civilian support. The majority of treatments given were to either injured soldiers or individuals returning from deployment with PTSD. In January 2014, I made a big jump across the pond to help my dear friend and colleague, Jeni Spring, LMT of http://www.heelingsole.com/ in San Antonio, Texas. I took my practice a step up and began massaging with my soles alone, TA-ing for monthly Ashiatsu Continuing Education Classes and helping to manage Heeling Sole side by side with Jeni Spring.
Hopefully you have noticed that I take pride in establishing myself within the community as a professional, reliable, caring, and knowledgeable Massage Therapist. My hope is to grow Barefoot Space into a thriving massage practice and a place for continuing education, yoga classes and workshops.
While I am fun-loving and totally down to earth, I am completely professional in my client/practitioner relationships. I believe massage and bodywork to be both an art and a science. I have a great love of anatomy & movement. Obviously, after extensive Ashiatsu DeepFeet Therapy training through http://www.deepfeet.com/ , the main focus of my practice is Barefoot Massage Therapy, but if you prefer a relaxing Deep Tissue ( I might still use my feet), specific Injury Treatment( I might still use my feet) , the delicate touch of CranioSacral Therapy or if you are an athlete training for that special event... I would love to be that Therapist for you. I believe that our Bodies’ have a powerful ability to heal. I would like to support you and your body through that healing process.
I am committed to continuing education, always looking to enhance my skills and knowledge.
As a ERYT - Yoga Teacher, I am trained through http://froglotusyogainternational.com/ and I teach a philosophy and style of Hatha Yoga that emphasizes community, independent thought, creativity, music and spontaneity. This opens the door to many creative, open minded, fun loving, spiritual, fly by the seat of your pants, eclectic individuals.
A "Do It Yourself", guiding, no force and self responsibility!
