" I received the Ashi-Thai. I really enjoyed it. I loved the passive stretching. I could feel the effects from the session even more so the following day. I felt loose and relaxed, and there was no soreness the following day that can sometimes happen after receiving body work."

"While I have had many massages, I was very impressed with Sachiyo and Ashiatsu Barefoot Massage. She is highly professional, very welcoming, and explains her techniques fully and clearly, while being very tuned in to her client's experience, needs and comfort. I was very impressed and will be a regular client from now on. I highly recommend her! "
