Ashiatsu is the ultimate bodywork for athletes and those that feel that they cannot get enough pressure during a traditional massage.  By supporting myself with overhead bars I'm able to control the amount of pressure for the client's level of tolerance.  I often incorporate traditional deep tissue and trigger point work manually into my Ashiatsu sessions.

I am certified to teach ashiatsu as a massage instructor for Barefoot Masters and will begin teaching continuing education for massage therapists in Atlanta in the Summer of 2018.
