Certified Advanced Rolfer™ LMBT #2153

I have to pinch myself sometimes when I think about how long I have been practicing bodywork.


31 years and counting! It has been quite the journey.


They say the average career span of a massage therapist can be 5-7 years. How have I lasted this long??


By going barefoot!!


After ten years of practicing deep tissue massage, I sought alternative modalities because my arms, hands, and back constantly bothered me.

I began my barefoot journey in 2002 and never looked back!


Three years later, barefoot massage inspired me to return to school at the Dr. Ida Rolf Institute in Boulder, CO, to receive my Rolfing certification.

I love structural work; using and adapting my feet to work with the fascia is incredible! In 2018, I completed my  Advanced Rolfing™️ certification.


Learning barefoot bodywork has changed my life and extended my career beyond my wildest expectations!


Read more about my experience in 'Massage, Rolfing, and Life Experiences' blog.


I've been an Ashiatsu barefoot massage instructor for 17 years and love teaching other therapists the possibilities of barefoot massage.


It's not easy, nor glamorous, and quite time-consuming.


But it's extremely rewarding to help massage therapists find hope after they thought their career was over.


Or to help breathe new life in a boring Swedish slumber massage practice for those fresh out of massage school.


I own and operate Bull City Soles Massage and Bodywork studio, where our therapists provide barefoot massage EVERY DAY.


We have the experience to mentor you on your journey to transform your practice into a full-time barefoot massage and bodywork practice.
