To BareFoot Bodyworks
My name is Missy and I’m the owner. I started my training in 1998 at The Acupressure Institute in Berkeley CA. It was there that I first learned about Ashiatsu massage and fell in love! I later continued my education on the Central coast at Hirudaya Holistic Life Center and California Holistic Institute. I began my career in 2002, working and honing my skills practicing in spa settings and then in Physical Therapy, Chiropractic and Medical Offices. In 2009 I began my training as an Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapist, opening Barefoot Bodyworks in 2010. I continued my love for Ashiatsu by taking more advanced classes in the modality and learning variations including Barefoot Massage, Fijian among others. My passion for Ashiatsu has only grown as I've learned. Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to learn more about me and the benefits of Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy!
