May 1-2, 2021 Ashi Bar Basic 18 hr CE Training Class
May 1, 2021 @ 9:00 am - May 2, 2021 @ 5:00 pm$50.00
The economy has changed and we have modified and adjusted our program to better fit your needs. This course is focused on the hands-on technique of Ashiatsu. We do not claim that we own massage or invented it. Massage therapists are creative intelligent independent free spirited thinkers and we want to keep it that way. The Barefoot Masters school of Ashiatsu has been in business for over 10 years delivering quality training across the nation.
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 or floor Barefoot 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.
BARS ARE USED FOR BALANCE AND SUPPORT
NO HEIGHT OR WEIGHT RESTRICTIONS
PRESSURE IS CONSTANT AND EVENLY MAINTAINED
CREATES MORE CIRCULATION
THERAPIST FEEL LIKE THEY HAVE PERFORMED A DANCE INSTEAD OF A WORKOUT
THIS THERAPY IS A MORE BALANCED APPROACH TO MASSAGE
The first deep tissue of the day is as good as the last one. There is none of the usual pain associated with deep tissue massage for therapist or client. The therapist gains strength, knowledge, and grace while adding diversity and vitality to their work day. 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.
MANUAL: The Ashiatsu manual consists of pictures with descriptions and instructions that cover the entire posterior routine.
VIDEO: A video is viewed as part of the course plan. Most of the training is spent on hands-on application of the posterior Ashiatsu technique.
LECTURE TIME: Time is spent discussing marketing and contraindications.
The final portion of the seminar is spent putting the routine together so it flows. A 45-minute practical is performed on the instructor, to fine-tune the movements, pressure, and placement of the application. 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. For more information on Chavutti Thirummal click here.
Cost for the class is $525 per person. We accept cash, check, and credit card payments. This fee includes digital course manual and instructional video! 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 4; 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. On day 1 we will eat lunch out and discuss marketing over the meal. Bring one fitted sheet, one pillowcase (or face cradle cover), and one over-sized 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 sweat pants to be most appropriate.
Ashiatsu Bar Therapy is a trademarked form of Ashiatsu Bar Therapy. It 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.
