The Foot Massage Girl. Yep, that's me. You all know by now that I do more than just massage your feet, at Heeling Sole, I massage you with my feet. The ongoing public awareness efforts on the benefits of Ashiatsu for me are always in motion, trying to clue people in and help them better understand the barefoot massage techniques that I do.
(If you've made it this far into the post, and are looking for just a foot massage, well that's not what I do, but you can get an excellent Reflexology session with my office mates - but you might as well try an Ashiatsu bare foot massage in San Antonio with me - because it's awesome!)
Word gets around and sometimes I get picked up by the media. Last year I was featured on Streets Corner, a local news segment, and I was also awarded Best Massage Therapist in the San Antonio Current! 2013 is off to a big start in the news: this month I'm featured in not one, but TWO articles on Ashiatsu!
The second article is a feature in a local magazine, Natural Awakenings. You can pick up a hard copy of this great massage-centered issue for free at our office, Whole Foods and other healthy, happy places around San Antonio.... or just read it here: Sole-Ful Massage
I still hear many locals say "Oh, you are the who gives the Foot Massage!" - so at least people have heard about it, and I'm trying hard to keep spreading the word. You can always check out the Media Page on my website to see more Ashiatsu in the news... barefoot massage is a real thing, I'm not making all this up, I swear.

Over the course of the years since Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy (AOBT) revolutionized barefoot bodywork with it's unique approach and teaching techniques, our brand name has become tantamount with barefoot bar massage worldwide. Other groups have used the term "Ashiatsu" and derivatives of our name in a variety of ways, conscripting themselves to the term that has become so popular. Whether this has been done unintentionally or with ill intentions, the public has often been confused with the similar names.
"...our brand name has become tantamount with barefoot bar massage worldwide."
As our nationwide website www.Deepfeet.com has been THE well-known source that massage therapists have referred to for almost 2 decades, "Deepfeet" has been synonymous with barefoot bar massage across the massage therapy profession. As the pioneers behind westernized gliding barefoot massage on a massage table using overhead support - we are well known for the high quality in our technique, the attention to detail in our courses, and the excellence of our graduates. We're also well known for having such a long name!
"Deepfeet" has been synonymous with barefoot bar massage..."
So - to shorten it up a bit and to continue to best represent this growing massage phenomenon, our modality is subtly going through a name change to "Deepfeet Bar Therapy", and will also be using the term "Ashiatsu BarefootBar" in ways to better describe our work.
Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy is now DeepFeet Bar Therapy!
Both the terms "Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy" and "Deepfeet Bar Therapy" can be used interchangeably, but we will be slowly transitioning to "Deepfeet Bar Therapy" as more time passes. As the terminology evolves, be assured that we are still the same group, still offering the same consistent material worldwide from our highly trained cerrtified instructors every month.
We hope this helps alleviate confusion. Change is never easy -- we feel that, like "Google" or "iPad" and our previous name of "Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy", DeepFeet Bar Therapy will also become a term for who we are and what we do.
Here's to happy feet and happy clients!
