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!
"Hows your Pain Management Menu" One of these articles is a national spa publication, "Les Nouvelles Esthetiques and Spa" (ooh, swanky - the foot massage girl goes to the spa!) I co-authored a piece on the clinical applications of Ashiatsu in a spa setting with the founder of Ashiatsu herself, Ruthie Piper Hardee! You can read this beauty here:
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.
