Intro to Ashiatsu 5 CE

A Barefoot Play Day for Beginners

Course Description

5CE This class is perfect for massage therapists who want to explore the possibility of working with their feet on the massage table. Compare and contrast compression and effleurage techniques performed by the hands and the feet and identify the benefits and limitations of standing on the table and using bars for balance. Practice standing on the table, holding on to the bar support system mounted to the ceiling and allowing gravity to help you deliver deep tissue massage like never before. Ask your most pressing questions about your bar construction project and equipment requirements. $150 In-Person Training. View Upcoming Events

Learning Outcomes

The main objective of this course is to expose massage therapists to the benefits of using their feet and entire body to deliver deep tissue massage. In addition to the opportunity to "play" on the bars, you will be able to demonstrate two new effleurage techniques with your feet that don’t require bars and can be integrated into your current massage practice right away. At the end of this course you will be able to decide if a focus in barefoot bodywork is right for you. Massage students who have completed at least 50% of their massage school curriculum (and hold student-level insurance) are invited to join in on this class.
