August 7th – 8th, 2021 Ashiatsu Bar Basic 18 hr CE Training Class
August 7, 2021 @ 9:00 am - August 8, 2021 @ 5:00 pm$50.00
This course is focused on the “hands-on” technique of Ashiatsu. Ashiatsu is an art, where the feet glide effortlessly over the contours of the client’s body. The pressure can be as light as a Swedish massage or the deepest massage a therapist can give.
WHAT MAKES THIS PROGRAM STAND OUT?
The overhead bars are used for balance and support. You do not have to have a lot of upper body strength to perform Ashiatsu. There are no height or weight restrictions as long as the table can sustain both the weight of the client and the therapist. Ashiatsu treatments are a more effective application of deep tissue massage.
The pressure is constant and evenly maintained. It creates more circulation. More circulation brings about faster healing. Ashiatsu brings about a relaxed state that lasts for hours after a massage service. Clients don’t walk out of a session – they float.
The first deep tissue of the day is as good as the last one when you are a barefoot massage therapist. There is none of the usual pain associated with deep tissue massage for the therapist or client. The therapist gains strength, knowledge, and grace while adding diversity and vitality to their workday. So you can do more of what you love, forever.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING THE ASHIATSU BAREFOOT MASSAGE BASIC CLASS
Ashiatsu training is an intensive and fun class dedicated to the preservation of the bodyworker.
An instructional manual and video are included in the cost of tuition.
The bulk of class time is used to perform the barefoot technique. The main objective of the class is to ensure the success of every therapist in the class. This class is contraindicated for those who have just had implant surgery for less than 9 months or pregnancy.
Cost for the class is $475 per person. We accept cash, check, and credit card payments. If you are paying with a debit card, please consider writing a check to prevent the banking fees associated with using a card. (Thank you)
Class size limited to 3; Please give at least 72 hours cancelation notice as there is typically a waitlist of others that could take your spot given enough time to prepare.
This 18 hour CE course will be taught over a 2-day session; hours are from 9am to 7pm for day one, then 9am to 5pm for day two.
Plenty of breaks will be given, however, please come to class well rested! I strongly suggest trainees bring snacks and a refrigerator is available for drink storage. Please bring a lunch for both days of training to preserve more time for training.
Bring one fitted sheet, one pillowcase (or face cradle cover), and one oversized heavy towel for draping. Therapists need to have their feet freshly pedicured and wear no toe or ankle jewelry. You may want to bring a pair of house shoes to wear while training to keep your bare feet off the floor.
Therapists, please wear loose comfortable clothing. Yoga capris or pants work best; if you wear yoga pants we’ll roll the pant legs up to the knee. Men find basketball shorts or sweatpants to be most appropriate.
Ashiatsu Barefoot massage is based on an ancient ayurvedic practice of Chavutti Thirummal. It combines Swedish, Myofascial, and compression techniques that are applied to the body with the therapist’s feet. Thereby, giving the hands and thumbs a rest.
