Rebecca | Instructor

About a year after graduating massage school, I knew I was in trouble. Every night I would come home in pain from a full day of deep tissue massages and wonder if there was a better way. It took me another couple years to find what I was looking for, but oh boy did it all change after I attended my first Ashi class in 2011! Almost seven years later I have a successful career all based around Ashiatsu. And now I have the opportunity to help others find out how amazing and rewarding this type of massage can be; working smarter not harder. Our classroom is half way between Chicago and Detroit and has plenty of activities for outdoor enthusiasts. I invite you to come and see where Ashiatsu can take you!
