We specialize in Ashiatsu massage and blending 12th-century wisdom with 21st-century wellness.
Bozeman Ashiatsu is Montana's premiere barefoot massage studio.
Ashiatsu, or barefoot massage, is an ancient healing art that's experiencing renewed popularity in the United States. And for good reason. Not only does Ashiatsu work deeper tissue, it also stimulates your entire parasympathetic nervous system.
Bottom line: Ashiatsu gets results.
real relaxation. REAL RESULTS.
We hear it time and time again. Once people experience Ashiatsu, they never want to back to traditional massage techniques. Ashiatsu therapists hold onto overhead bars for balance and support as they use gravity to deliver targeted pressure through their feet in this transformative, relaxing, and therapeutic massage. Check out the unique benefits below or read our FAQs.
work deeper tissue
Deeper than a typical "Deep Tissue" massage, Ashiatsu provides a perfect level of consistent pressure and stretch. Enjoy a pain-free, bruise-free massage of your deeper muscle layers, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues.
align your body
Ashiatsu supports greater fascial movement and elongates the spine to open disc spaces and soothe spinal nerves and connective tissue. Barefoot massage can also dramatically increase range of motion and athleticism.
Rest and Digest
Imagine being able to consciously relax your body and mind at will. Activating your parasympathetic nervous system (PNS) helps train your body to adapt and recover faster during times of stress and brings greater peace to every area of your life.

about Lisa Laird
Massage Therapist. Yogini. Dancer. Mama.
Lisa began yoga at a young age as a complement for her first love – ballet. When a dance injury brought her back to the mat as an adult, she was hooked.
Having personally experienced the transformative power of yoga to heal her body (and spirit), Lisa has dedicated her life to teaching and bringing the heartfelt and healthy relief, relaxation, and respite to others.
Lisa discovered Ashiatsu Massage in Mysore, India while studying Ashtanga Yoga. The immediate pain relief she felt was astonishing, and she returned to the States committed to learning the art and sharing her gift with her community.
THE GOOD STUFF BOTANICALS
When it comes to endorsing a skin care line, I'm pretty picky. (OK, ridiculously picky!) I have high standards about all natural ingredients, supporting local businesses and making sure the products actually WORK.
The Good Stuff Botanicals passed every test with flying colors and I'm thrilled to introduce my clients to this amazing line.
