MEET THE FEET

About Janel: lmt, mmt, certified barefoot massage therapist 
license #ma00018928

I’ve been a practicing Massage Therapy Professional since 2003.  I put my best foot forward in both educating and 'heeling' my clients, empowering them to live better and healthier lives.


I use traditional swedish massage as well as Ashiatsu: Barefoot massage techniques, in order to provide you with a holistic,  individualized treatment. 

The literal translation of Ashiatsu in Japanese is (ashi) Foot (atsu) Pressure.  Ashiatsu is massagae performed with the practitioners feet, using bars over head as support and balance.  Utilizing my feet provides you with broad, compressive strokes that allows for sustained pressure for the length of the massage.  It is highly therapeutic (especailly with the use of sustained compression, trigger point therapy, fascial release and active or passive Range of Motion techniques) for athletes, those in strenuous or repetitive jobs, people with dense tissue and those of you who feel like they just can't get a deep enough massage.


Barefoot deep tissue massage is direct application of pressure through a muscle into the undrlying bone.  This deep, broad based form of bodywork assists with rest, recovery & repair of muscle tissue and creates a positive structural change in chronic soft tissue damage.


Are you an athlete?  Do you have sports or repetitive strain injuries?  Do you feel like your massage is never to the level of "just quite deep enough".

As well as having completed the training necessary to be a designated Medical Massage Practitioner and certified Barefoot massage specialist.  I am skilled and professionally trained in treating sports related & automoblie injuries.

I look forward to getting to know you!
