What is Barefoot Massage?


         Barefoot Massage is a Ashiatsu technique using aspects of traditional Japanese Ashiatsu in combination with western Deep Tissue, Swedish, Myofascial Massage styles to give Deep Tissue using the massage therapists’ feet as an effective multifaceted tool.The deep strokes from the Barefoot Massage therapists’ feet, along with gravity-assisted depth, and compression delivers a deep tissue, potentially myofascial massage to deliver a better deep massage experience to clients.


Barefoot Massage is an Ashiatsu technique using deep strokes from the massage therapists’ feet, utilizing gravity-assisted depth, and compression, to deliver a deep massage like no other. The style is a combination of western and eastern forms of deep tissue technique and ancient forms of barefoot bodywork dating back thousands of years from cultures across several countries. Here at BareFoot BodyWorks SLO, we utilize all of our extensive training to deliver an effective Barefoot Session.


Mobility Massage is a session focused on your flexibility and range of motion of joints. It's a combination of styles: Thai, Range of Motion, and Stretching facilitated by the therapist. This mostly Massage session is done with you fully clothed, comfortable flexible clothing. No oils or lotion or wax is used. This can be added to Ashiatsu/ Barefoot Sessions to some degree. The benefit of working your body through passive & active mob is to increase movement between layers of connective tissue while decreasing the sensation or awareness of pain. Stretch Therapy enhances performance through mobility. This modality of massage can incorporate more dynamic movements with varying active assisted range of motion(as-rom) and passive range of motion(p-rom) techniques based on your needs and the goals of the session.

Fijian/Barefoot is a different style of barefoot massage, where the client is fully clothed while lying on a mat on the floor, supported by pillows and bolsters. The therapist usually works from a chair and uses her bare feet to provide the deep therapeutic strokes related to this style. No lotions, oils or creams are used in this method.

  Ashiatsu massage is absolutely the best deep tissue massage, and Missy is exceptional. Highest recommendation.

Jennifer, SLO 2019

This is by far the best massage I have ever had. Missy is a skilled and intuitive bodyworker. She is very knowledgeable of her craft and cares deeply for her clients. I trust her implicitly with my massage care.

Today was my second visit to BareFoot body works, and it was just as good as the first time. Missy is a master at her craft. The deep tissue technique she uses is amazing… worth every penny.
