Meet Our Team
Hi , I'm Aimee the proud owner of Barefoot Bliss massage. Having worked as a therapist in the luxury spa industry for 13 years I developed a passion for creating an exceptional experience for each of my guest. In 2015 I thought that I would be ending my career in massage therapy due to repetitive movement injuries. It was at that time that I received an Ashiatsu massage and fell in love with how amazing it felt. I came to learn that not only could I extend my career by using my feet instead of my hands, but that I could also introduce this technique to deep tissue lovers. I love Ashiatsu massage for the long fluid strokes and depth of pressure that can be achieved while at the same time putting you into a state of deep relaxation.
I'm very proud of the following team members. They are all uniquely gifted therapist and share the same passion I do of creating an exceptional experience for you each time you visit Barefoot Bliss Massage.
