**ASHIATSU BAREFOOT MASSAGE** I had pain that would come and go from old injuries in my neck, shoulder and low back that would creep up on me with weather changes or when I would sit too long at work on the computer. I always had my son walk on my back because I felt my body needed that kind pressure and I would actually feel some relief. Well, fast forward to me earning my massage license and attending the World Massage Festival where I saw other massage therapists walking on people's backs! Peeked my curiosity...here was an actual "back walking " technique called Ashiatsu Barefoot Massage. I set up an appointment at Heeling Sole in San Antonio where they offered it and fell in love with the feeling! My body didn't guard in the usual spots that a typical massage would trigger so the therapist was able to go deep enough for the relief I really needed. I knew this was what I was looking for and wanted to offer this kind of experience to my clients back here in the valley. I signed up for my basic training with Jeni Spring, a pioneer of barefoot massage and owner of the Center for Barefoot massage. She has over 20 years experience and is a master of her craft. I am lucky to be able to study with her in San Antonio.

Physical Therapy Technician

My father suffered a back injury at work that caused him lumbar disc ruptures and unable to work. Seeing how one unexpected injury could affect the entire family and what my father went through (physical and emotional pain) drew me to helping others recuperate from injuries and empower them so they can prevent further damage or another injury as well so they can maintain a high quality of life as independent and pain free as possible.I applied physical therapy modalities under the supervision of a Licensed Physical Therapist and Orthopedic Surgeon. Modalities included ultrasound, e-stim, massage, work conditioning program, therapeutic exercises to rehabilitate several injuries mostly low back, rotator cuff repairs and post knee replacement care.
