Great message & welcoming environment
One of the best massages I’ve ever had. I always leave feeling refreshed, relaxed and taller. Sara and her staff are amazing.
I’ve had several “traditional” massages from Sara, all of which I have enjoyed. We had been doing some deep tissue work on my shoulder, breaking up knots and attempting to return flexibility. While deep tissue was providing some relief, I wasn’t progressing as much as I had hoped.
Sara suggested we try Ashiatsu. She explained that it would provide deeper relief to my shoulder as well as offer tension relief unmatched by other massage styles. Wow, was she right! My shoulder felt much more open and my muscles were looser than they had been in weeks. I also felt an all over relaxation. The tension had melted from my mind, as well as my body.
“Traditional” massage cannot match the level of relief that Ashiatsu provides. I highly recommend Sara Newberry and Ashiatsu massage for my family, friends, and co-workers. With Sara, you’re in good hands (and feet).
When Sara first asked me if I was interested in an ashiatsu massage I was skeptical. Feet? Feet are rough, calloused, smelly, sweaty implements of misery. Really? But I sucked up my reservations, got undressed, and lay on the table.
It was the best decision I could have made that day.
I am an athlete; Sara’s skilled hands have soothed many an achy muscle. But my fear was she would literally walk all over me. Not so. After the first minute I totally forgot she was using her feet. I melted. Ashiatsu massage goes deeper, is stronger than tradition massage. With skill she used the weight of her entire body to stretch and massage my muscles and it felt incredible. It was both relaxing and intense. I felt like I had spent an hour doing yoga.
I’m a convert. I would highly recommend ashiatsu massage to anyone.
Thank you so much for convincing me to try ashiatsu massage. You know how I feel about feet – they are rough, calloused, smelly, sweaty implements of misery. I didn’t know what to expect when I lay down on the table. Eyes closed, teeth clenched, I silently prepared for the worst.
After the first minute I totally forgot you were using your feet! You know I love a good massage, but this was incredible. I thought you were going to walk all over me, maybe crack my spine while you were at it. I didn’t expect the steady, soothing pressure. It was deeper, stronger than a traditional massage…I can’t think of a better word for it. I melted. I may have drooled. After, I felt like I had done an hour of yoga.
I’m a convert! I can’t wait for the next one. Until then I’ll be leaping from rooftop to rooftop singing your praises. Ok, more like sharing it on Facebook, but you know what I mean. Thank you so much!!
I LOVED my therapeutic message experience. After the message, I felt very relaxed and stress free! Thank you.
Sara is truly old school high class, with a pure heart and a ton of integrity. I feel bad that I’m not more established in St. Louis in order to refer people to receive her awesome Ashiatsu bodywork. Sara is an awesome massage therapist that will spend the time needed to ensure you are pampered!
Sara was very accommodating and professional; she made me feel comfortable right from the introductions. The Ashiatsu massage (my first) and stretching was a deep pressure experience that really got down into my tight muscles. It felt great. I recommend Sara’s work!
As far as massages go, Ashiatsu is the best available to you out there. Forget about swedish, pressure point, Ashiatisu is what you want! And as far as therapists go, Sara is simply the best. Excellent service, lovely personality, professional and so knowledgeable. She cares so much about her patient’s health and will educate you to help steer you on the road for better health. Obviously, I highly recommend her!
loved my Ashi Thai mix with Sara. She knows just the right amount of pressure to use and how far to stretch me.
I love my monthly massage, the most relaxing experience I have ever had. Sara is wonderful, remembers my trigger spots and really helps to encourage full ROM of my aging joints in a soothing manner and environment.
The Ashi Thai massage is very relaxing and deep massage. I thought hands were on my body, not feet. You cannot tell the difference and Sara is very experienced and an expertise in this type of massage. I highly recommend this and if one has not experienced it you will be so happy you do.
I’ve used the words “life-changing” more than numerous times to describe Sara! I was a believer in ashiatsu from the first massage. Sara creates a warm environment with her soft tableside manner. Her technique catalyzes your body to heal, grow, and change. You leave feeling amazing and energized!
I had constant pain down my right arm with tingling, etc. My Dr. suggested shots in my spine at the neck area. I decided to try something else and came to Sara. She has carefully manipulated and massaged my neck and back and since I started with Sara almost a year ago, the above symptoms are gone…not to mention my body had been happy all over due to her caring massage. Thank you, Sara!
Loved my recent massage. Sara is very sweet and caring and has a very positive attitude. I thoroughly enjoy every session and leave with a greatly enhanced sense of physical and mental well being. Thanks, Sara!
Sara is excellent. I will return
Sara is very professional and makes you feel very comfortable. The massage was so relaxing even though it was a deep tissue massage. She worked out the kinks and all I wanted to do after that was go to sleep. I was in a fantastic mood for the rest of the day!
Amazing as always! Thank you! Loved the deep stretching you added at the end of the Ashi massage. It was very much needed and appreciated. Can’t wait til I can come in again!
I had an incredible experience and would recommend Sara and the massages she does to my best friend and I’ve been bragging about it to complete strangers!
For years, I would typically go for one massage a year as a way to treat myself and work out the stress I had put on my back at my desk job. However, this was before going to Sara at Remedy Massage Studio for the Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy. Besides being completely relaxing, I finally felt like I got a massage/massage therapist that could work deep into my muscles they way that I needed. Before I left my first appointment, I had scheduled my next–something that I had never done before. I highly recommend both Sara. Fantastic massages at affordable prices is a win-win for all!
Very professional and friendly. Great massage.
The massage I received from Sara was the best massage that I have ever gotten. Her ability to deliver a pain free, deep tissue massage is unparalled. This was definitely the most luxurious massage on the planet!
Wonderful therapy. Enjoy the experience. Highly recommended.
Really great deep massage! My muscles and whole body felt very relaxed after. I will definitely be a repeat customer
This was the best massage I’ve ever had. I have tons of junk built up from months and months of hard manual labor. Sara worked me over more thoroughly, and with more care and attention to detail than any other masseuse I’ve used. I am going back for sure.
Sara offers one of the best deep tissue massages I have ever had. She intuitively knows how to work the muscular tension out of your body.
Top notch massage! Feeling great ever since!
Best massage of my life. Attention to all parts of the body, strength is amazing, I am a convert!
Sara is very in-tune with her client’s needs and works on those areas to achieve the best results. I always look forward to my time with her because it’s both relaxing and therapeutic.
Sara is wonderful. Not only is she exceptionally skilled in massage, but she is also kind, flexible, and easy to work with. I always feel like she goes above and beyond in her work. The little things matter to her. I can almost guarantee you won’t be disappointed! Go see her!
Sara’s massage was one of the best massages I have ever received. It was my first experience with Ashiatsu and I felt as though it helped me release some of the stress I was storing in my body. I can’t wait for my next massage!
Sara always does amazing work. I’ve had various massages over the years…but, none can compare to Sara! I love her follow up after each session, too. I recommend her to everyone I can!
Sara is a very professional massage therapist. She did what she could to work out all the stiff muscles that I had abused over the past weekend. She works with you and is open to any suggestions or complaints. She aims to customize the service.
The ashiatsu bar therapy massage I received from Sara is the single best massage I’ve ever had. I immediately purchased a large package of additional sessions. It was such a peaceful and pleasant experience. I can’t wait to return!
I am completely new to massage and visited Sara for an anniversary celebration with my wife. Sara and her partner were professional and friendly. She really showed an interest in improving my overall physical wellbeing through an initial interview and conversations. Her facility is also super clean and relaxing. Next time, I would really like to experience an athiatsu massage.
Awesome massage. Loved the Ashiatsu. Sara was very personable with me after the massage to make sure I was happy. Thanks Again!!
Sara is, in a word, amazing. I was a little nervous never having done ashiatsu before but she made everything smooth and easy. The pressure was perfect and the relief was incredible. She made me feel comfortable throughout the whole process and was kind but very professional. I can’t recommend this enough if you typically do deep tissue massage. I found this to be intense enough for me but didn’t have the pain I typically feel with deep tissue hand massage. She checked in on me occasionally to make sure I was alright but, in general, just let me enjoy the time.
The most fantastic and relaxing massage ever! Sara’s technique allows her to get to deep tissue without pain and apply gentle stretching as well. I will be back.
Sara is fantastic! I recommend her to everyone. As someone with various athletic hobbies, I find she does a great job of tailoring sessions to my needs, whether I’m having issues with a specific area or just want a full-body treatment. Sara has great intuition about how much pressure to apply and how long to work on different parts, and I always feel like my comfort and wellness are her top priority. Notably, Sara is trained in Ashiatsu massage (she uses her bare feet instead of her hands and supports herself with bars attached to the ceiling–it feels great, especially on big muscle groups that need lots of attention!), and she is one of only a handful of Ashiatsu practitioners in the St. Louis area. The studio is in a nice, quiet location in a cute, very safe, easily accessible neighborhood. I’ve since moved out of state, but every time I’m back in town, Sara Newberry, LMT is a must-visit!
Sara is highly professional. From the moment I step into the building until I leave her sole focus is upon me and helping me to relax and feel better. I would highly recommend Sara to anyone.

The Ashiatsu Session that I had with Sara Newberry was truly amazing! I have never had such deep work with NO pain or even discomfort!! It felt like she was working inside my muscles – stretching them from the inside, and releasing all of the tension and knots! Afterwards, I was incredibly relaxed, and felt rejuvinated and pain free!! Thank you, Sara!!
She was very aware of my prior back surgery’s and it was the Best Message Ever!!!!!!
Sara gave me an excellent massage! She is very professional and an expert at her craft. It was both therapeutic and relaxing and she followed up with me afterward to make sure I was doing OK. I highly recommend her. This being my first session with her, I was very impressed and will definitely be going back.
Sara seems devoted to her service and client! Real results are immediately realized with limbs & joint movements.
Sara was amazing. She put me at ease in conversation beforehand, gave a wonderful and relaxing massage, and did a great job debriefing with me afterwards. I feel great and look forward to another massage with Sara in the future.
Sara is great. Her massages are the deepest, yet most relaxing massages I have ever had! Great for recovery from hard training, and for relaxation.
Love the Sole Shine ladies! They are so welcome and make you feel completely at ease!!
Great experience, everyone is so nice. Sara is so great to work with, she really listens to your needs and enjoys what’s she does. She is a beautiful artist of wellness 😉
I felt wonderful after the massage and hope to see you sooner rather than later. Your touch and presence is a joy and a gift, thanks for sharing it with me.
Amazing! The space is peaceful, clean and beautiful. The massage was perfection
I love love love Sole Shine!!! I can’t say enough about how amazing I feel after my massages. I get the deep feel and effect without all the pain when someone uses their fingertips. The rooms are wonderful and comfortable and I love the aromatherapy
I really like the incense that she used during my massage. Also my body felt so much better after my workout on Sunday from her Thai Yoga Massage.
I liked the questions on the intake form. It felt like they were getting to know me not just my medical history. I loved the massage! Best one of my life and I’ve had my fair share!
From the moment I walked in, I began to relax. By the end of the massage, I was a blissed-out bundle of putty!
I’m hooked on Barefoot Massage.
My therapist had a very quiet demeanor and she is a sweet as can be. I always take a little while to wind down and really relax, but I was almost fast asleep by the time the session was over. I loved my therapists’ touch; I could feel all the knots disappearing and the stress melting away.
The office is relaxed and serene–perfect for a massage. I like that I get regular reminders and confirmations leading up to the appointment. Everything seems very well organized.
I had an amazing Thai Massage! The movements during the massage made me feel like I was going through a completely effortless yoga class. My therapist had a calm quality about her, that that lets you feel welcomed and relaxed. I felt completely refreshed after the massage. If you have never experienced a Thai massage, I highly recommend that you see a therapist at Sole Shine!
I liked the fact that Sara takes the time to give me homework to try and help reduce the stress I have
They are always on schedule and their scheduling is such that it never seems over crowed or rushed. They send email alerts for appointment reminders and have easy online scheduling. The place is always clean and welcoming. They ask what areas need to be worked on and follow through with emphasis in those spots. They continually ask for feedback before, during and after. The location is conveniently located in Maplewood.
I always feel relaxed when walking into Sole Shine.
Great supportive atmosphere. The Thai massage was perfect for my tense muscles.
Sole Shine is amazing! I love the atmosphere, massage therapists and vibe.
I’ve had 35-40 massages and I felt the best after this one.
Always leave with my tight back and neck muscles relaxed. Improves my range of motion in neck. Awesome message!
Always on time, always professional and consistently great bodywork!
Excellent massage. ..great, relaxing environment. ..thank you!
I have received many massages and Shine Barefoot Massage is by far the best, my therapist was very professional, and had me feeling like a brand new person, and the owner Sara was so nice, I will definitely be using your services again. 💆♀️
I always recommend Sole Shine. It’s the absolute best.
The staff and service received is top notch.
Sole Shine is the BEST! I go on a regular basis to keep my body and mind in top shape!
Clean place, great atmosphere and customer service, left there feeling like a million bucks
They are wonderful at treating my aches and helping me to heal my misalignments. True skill and professionalism with a twist of uniqueness!
Incredibly welcoming and personal. Took my needs and lifestyle into consideration. The massage was absolutely amazing. I was having low back pain and tenderness, which felt so much better afterwards.
I love the studio and the people that work there! Plus great massage!
Great massage, no pain, felt terrific.
My experience was relaxing and professional.
Nothing beats a massage from Sara- the atmosphere, the touch, the respect, the results. So very healing!
I elected to have a combination massage, stretch session and it was AWESOME!! I felt great and a different kind of relaxed.
Ive been 10+ times for a massage and I’ve never been unhappy w my experience.
It’s one of the best ways that I find to just relax. Even if it is for 1 hour.
My therapist was really friendly and made me feel comfortable and relaxed. I enjoyed the atmosphere and the massage immensely! I will definitely come back!
Great massage–perfect amount of pressure and time spend on the areas that were important to me; nice relaxing music
My therapist was tremendously skillful at what she does.
My therapist was extremely nice and professional. Her post massage insights were valuable and I hope to work with her again soon.
This was probably the best massage I’ve had. Pressure was perfect. My therapist worked out many of my knots without causing me pain. And I’m feeling great today.
My therapist does a great job of knowing where my body needs the most work. Very comfortable atmosphere and I always leave extremely happy. I look forward to it every month
Every time I visit I feel better than when I arrived there…
It’s always the best massage, great stretching yesterday, staff is always super sweet…
I have been having chronic issues with my shoulders and my therapist has been throwing everything she knows at helping me figure out what I did and how to alleviate the limited range of motion I have been dealing with. She totally dug in with everything she learned from the ROM class the weekend before to help me out and it was great! 😀
I enjoyed my massage treatment. It was very relaxing. Thank you!
Vastly improved neck stiffness and joint articulation.
Nice space, friendly people, great massage!
Best massage in the state.
I really enjoyed my massage. Felt very relaxed afterward.
My therapist paid extra attention to the spots I had mentioned I was having trouble with, and she gave me the deep specific pressure that I asked for, which is often difficult to find.
Professional, organized, comfortable, rejuvenating!
The therapist asked me how I was doing, listened to my complaints about pain in my back, and thoroughly addressed those issues during the session.
