Karyna Verzwyelt Instructor

I fell head over heels for Ashiatsu shortly after moving to Portland, Oregon in 2012. As a new massage therapist in a new city, fate intervened and I happened to meet Nancy Delong, now CEO of DeepFeet. After receiving my first Ashiatsu massage, I instantly knew that I had to share this amazing modality that delivers deep, yet comfortable pressure almost effortlessly. I’ve been practicing Ashiatsu for 11 years and converting clients from regular massage from day one. After leaving Portland in 2014, I returned to the outdoor recreation hub of Bend, Oregon, where I’ve built a thriving massage studio specializing exclusively in barefoot massage. Bend, Oregon offers a unique learning environment to study Ashiatsu. Nestled at the foot of the Cascade Mountains in a high desert, volcanic landscape, Bend boasts breathtaking scenery. From the snow-capped peaks of the Three Sisters to the Deschutes River that flows through the heart of the city, there's something for everyone to enjoy. Whether you’re into mountain biking, hiking, snow sports, or just floating down the river after class, there are endless ways to enjoy the outdoors here. There are also excellent shopping and dining opportunities, with a vibrant downtown only two blocks away from the Sole Purpose Massage training studio. If you are ready to uplevel your massage skills, use gravity to your advantage, and deliver deep, effective massage sessions that don’t leave you feeling exhausted at the end of the day, it’s time to learn Ashiatsu! There is so much depth to a barefoot massage practice—so much that will benefit both you and your clients. This modality will spark your creativity, rekindle your passion for massage, and give you a skill set that will set you apart from other therapists. I hope to see you in Bend for one of our classes soon!
