A thorough intake will be done apon your first visit. Please be open & feel free to ask questions, as we will ask you many.

Upon arrival at barefoot space, you will be directed to fill out a intake form. you may want to just breeze through it, but please don’t! you may think that something in your health history does not apply to your massage, but it does!. once completed, your therapist will take you through a series of movements to assess your individual movement patterns and range of motion.

FasciAshi and Stretch Therapy are much different than hands on massage, and there are many health concerns that your therapist will need to know.
