Our Barefoot Bodyworks Ashiatsu Massage Trainings Classes
Ashiatsu Barefoot Massage Intro – 6 CE
This 6-hour introductory CEU course covers the seated portion of the Ashiatsu Barefoot routine, no bars needed! I can teach this course in my office, a school setting, day spa, or any large room, given the ability to bring portable tables! Contact me for details about setting up class date!
Ashiatsu Barefoot Massage Basic 18 CE’s
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.
Ashiatsu Barefoot Massage Advanced – 6 CE’s
After completing the Basic Bar course and practicing your new barefoot strokes, return for this 6-hour class and learn how to deliver advanced one-footed and two-footed moves!
Your advanced training will include some very site-specific bodywork to allow for more time spent on your client’s “trouble” areas. While there are several double footed strokes in this training session; the majority of the strokes are performed with one foot. So this training is great for you even if you are not strong enough to pull your weight up with the overhead bars!
Ashiatsu Barefoot Massage Floor – 18 CE’s
You can take this as an introductory 18-hour CEU course in performing barefoot Ashiatsu massage or as an additional training session to practice modifying the table moves for floor work.
Ashiatsu Stretch – 12 CE’s
Ashiatsu Stretch Massage 12 Hour CE (Arkansas & NCBTMB approved)
How about learning to use your Ashiatsu bars to deliver some Thai style stretches?? Ashi – Stretch is a brand-new class offered by Barefoot Bodyworks to do just that! I have been using facilitated stretching in my massage practice for years with fabulous results. Using the overhead or floor bars makes this type of bodywork nearly effortless! No more bending over at the waist and risking injury to your own body for some big, full body stretches!
This technique is great to add to your current Ashiatsu protocol or as a stand-alone service. Clients can stay fully dressed while you work your magic in a sequence of stretches and compressions designed to help relieve pain!
What you need to bring for class: Therapists, wear loose, comfortable clothing. Your feet need to be freshly pedicured for class. We will break for lunch – please bring drinks and snacks if needed.
Tuition of $250 includes digital manual and video – no other Ashiatsu experience required for taking this course
