Growing up in a family of health advocates, Ms. Hook found it a natural progression that she delve into the world of massage therapy. "It just made sense to me," she says of the motivation behind her career decision, "because I'm passionate about life, and figured that making people feel better and helping them get out of pain was enough on its own." She stands firmly behind the notion that stress is the most influential factor in all illnesses, and one of her goals is to educate her patients in retraining their muscles to remain in a relaxed state.

Our training studio is just minutes away from white sandy beaches and tropical trade winds. The perfect environment to "Go barefoot". So join me for year round warm weather, world famous muy buena Latin cuisine and learn a fabuloso deep tissue massage technique...Para salvar tus manos y tu vida para siempre.
Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy (AOBT)
Our application of this barefoot massage technique uses deep compression effleurage strokes that glide over the body. Bars are used above the head for balance and lubricant is essential for its purest application. We combine flowing centrifugal and centripetal force and also incorporate push, pull, pumping effleurage movements. The results relieve symptoms of chronic soft tissue damage and in some cases when we're lucky, a structural change.
We feel our modality-technique has enhanced the careers of hundreds of therapists who suffer from lumbar pain, wrist and hand problems. The Barefoot Basics first level course is where everyone starts learning fundamentals and contraindications. No matter how large or small, we will train you to deliver safe and effective one footed Swedish protocols to just about anyone on the planet. We will show you various ways to give consistent, deep, luxurious Swedish style compression using your feet with pleasure, client after client and enjoy your career as a therapist for years to come.
