This is an amazingly comfortable, significantly effective modality to provide and receive. It deserves the research and development SAMBA, LLC is committed to offer. We hope to meet you in this wonderful world of barefoot massage and share the passion with you!
“In the early 2000’s, I began practicing barefoot massage techniques through a training with a former employer. Immediately, I fell in love with the grace and gravity of the modality, and I found the challenge of learning it motivating.
After experiencing first-hand that while Ashiatsu can save hands, arms, and overall energy of the therapist, if providing more than one a day, it could also be more exerting than traditional hand-delivered modalities. Due to the love of this new work, research of how to resolve all issues arising from providing it for all of my colleagues and myself became my goal.
Several years after providing this work, I was asked to become an instructor of it. Hesitant but excited, I began my own teacher-training program by flying to different classes across the states, and eventually going over-seas to gather a deeper understanding of the origin and evolution of the work. During the years of teaching under a more commercial umbrella, it was clear this modality deserved the honor of sharing facts, truth, and resolutions in order for it to grow and truly add longevity to therapists’ careers. Because of the restrictions I was under, I felt the need to step out from under the umbrella and share the discoveries that were helping many therapists keep safe and happy while developing their skills. That’s when SAMBA first got to bare its sole, and we’re still learning and growing ourselves.”
Today, we have shared details and techniques that have saved not only therapists from leaving the modality, but converted many prior recipients of the modality to return to it, all reaping the benefits of it. Sharing “secrets” of the work and the set up required to keep providing it without injury to therapist or client, have become a passion that continues to grow.
