Bull City Soles is a unique massage and bodywork studio located in Durham, NC. We specialize in Ashiatsu Barefoot Massage and Rolfing® Structural Integration. Yes, we massage and Rolf WITH our feet. We do this because it delivers the most impressive, broad, and AMAZING bodywork that you have ever experienced. We offer clients effective massage and bodywork alternatives in a professional, ethical, and nurturing environment to promote individual health and wellness. We have 27+ years of experience in helping people recover from chronic pain conditions such as back pain, headaches, whiplash, hip/knee pain, shoulder injuries, or surgery.
As experienced massage therapists, we are trained in a variety of modalities such as Deep Tissue Massage, Trigger Point Therapy, Cupping, Pregnancy/Prenatal Massage, and Ashiatsu barefoot massage. Our client testimonials attest to the passion and commitment we have, and we would love the opportunity to work with you.
I received my original massage training from the Carolina School of Massage Therapy in 1992. In 2002, after ten years of providing the deep tissue massage techniques my clients craved, the repetitive wear and tear were taking a toll on my wrists, elbows, and shoulders. I was desperate for an alternative modality and pursued ashiatsu barefoot massage training.
Barefoot massage saved my career and empowered me to begin Rolfing® SI training in 2005. I also started teaching Ashiatsu barefoot to massage therapists. In May 2018 I completed my Advanced certification in Rolfing® SI and, I continue to develop my myofascial barefoot skills. While I no longer offer massage sessions, I continue to personally train the Bull City Soles team in Ashiatsu barefoot massage and instruct other massage therapists under the umbrella of The Center for Barefoot Massage. It's been a remarkable journey!
