At Sole Purpose Massage, my sole purpose is to help you feel better.  Whether you need to recover from an injury, are seeking pain relief, or just want to relax from the stresses of life, I'm here to help.  I utilize a variety of massage techniques, including traditional Swedish and deep tissue massage, invigorating sports massage and stretching, neuromuscular and myofascial work, Thai massage, and my specialty,  Ashiatsu Barefoot Massage, to create lasting changes in your body.  You will feel the difference!

What is Ashiatsu and why should I try it?  Ashiatsu is deep tissue done right! It is a barefoot deep tissue massage that uses compression and effleurage strokes that glide over the body.  These strokes create a structural change in muscle tissues, releasing chronic tension and holding patterns. Bars are used above the head for support and balance and warm oil is applied to the body to increase glide. 

The benefit of massage with the foot is the broad, continuous pressure that makes compression strokes smooth and sumptuous instead bony or prodding.  Most strokes are done with one foot on the table and one on the client, so pressure is easily adjusted to your preference.  Ashiatsu is the "deepest, most luxurious massage on the planet."  Try it once and you'll be hooked!
