Barefoot Space is the creation of Dawn R Dotson, a Certified FasciAshi (ashiatsu) Barefoot Massage Therapist and Yoga Teacher. Originally from the Pacific Northwest, Dawn is a sophisticated career therapist dedicated to offering the best of Barefoot Massage Therapy. Dawn is part of a dedicated team of Barefoot Massage Instructors through the Center For Barefoot Massage (CBM).
While Dawn is fun-loving and totally down to earth, she is completely professional in her client/practitioner relationships. Dawn believes massage and bodywork to be both an art and a science and she has a great love of anatomy & movement. Obviously, after extensive FasciAshi Barefoot Massage training the focus of Barefoot Space and the treatments offered there are Barefoot Massage Therapy. However, if you prefer a relaxing Deep Tissue (feet will still be used), specific Injury Treatment (feet will still be used), or if you are an athlete training for that special event... Barefoot Space would love to be that support for you. Barefoot Space believes that our Bodies’ have a powerful ability to heal and Dawn would like to support you and your body through that healing process.
Dawn is not only committed to continuing her education and looking to enhance her professional skills and knowledge, but she also wants to help other Massage Therapists expand their knowledge as well. Dawn offers Continuing Education and mobility workshops here at Barefoot Space. Professionally licensed Massage Therapists will learn to awaken their feet's potential and how to safely use gravity to apply "feet-on" deep tissue, myofascial release and trigger point focused barefoot massage. By choosing to study with Dawn, Center For Barefoot Massage Team (CBM), and using your lovely little feet, Massage Therapists will not only lengthen their careers, they can potentially save them.
As a ERYT - Yoga Teacher, Dawn trained through Frog Lotus and teaches 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.
