Al is a massage therapist who listens to you as you explain what you need out of the massage, and better yet, he listens to your body as he works through each muscle group. We are both weight lifters and runners, and Al is our go-to therapist for post-workout relief. He’s able to find tension points we didn’t even know existed (even in the face and scalp!), and by the end, we’re rejuvenated and ready for the next workout. When we need it, Al is also there to help us just relax and wind down after a long week, providing a comforting and soothing massage in an environment that is inviting and warm. We recommend Al to everyone we know, and highly recommend him to anyone looking for a great massage therapist they can trust. - Alex and Dan
After working all day in construction. I tend to have some sore muscles. Al has been helpful working out the aches and pains. I highly recommend Al, his deep tissue techniques are great. - Joel
Al at Barefoot Hands earned my trust after the very first visit, and I've had nothing but positive experiences since. Prior to that visit, I'd never received a massage that incorporated Asian bodywork techniques. But since then, Al has introduced me to treatments like Ashiatsu and Tui Na, while incorporating hot stone, reflexology and Swedish techniques. Each session has been a fantastic mix of East-mets-West that have served me on levels deeper than just my body. Al has always been respectful of my comfort and privacy, and importantly to me, he's unwaveringly present throughout the session. I'd highly recommend Al and Barefoot Hands. - Jason F.
