A message from therapist Katie Espy

I am officially certified in Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy®!! I am so proud to be a part of this elite group of massage therapists in the United States. Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy® is a very unique modality of massage, it is a barefoot technique using deep compression effleurage strokes that glide over the body. Bars are used above the head by the therapist for support and balance.

Interested in trying Ashiatsu, but a little nervous? Please contact me to discuss if Ashiatsu is right for you!!
