THIS IS WHERE THE MAGIC BEGINS...
Here's where you begin your barefoot massage career. You'll learn how to use your feet to work intuitively like you do your hands. In our 3 day class, you'll spend most of your time on the table receiving or exploring the art of FasciAshi barefoot massage.
Using bars overhead for balance and a special strap behing you when you work on a diagonal plane, learning deep tissue massage has never been less complicated and more inuitive.
You'll work on fellow students, the instructor, and in a student clinic for a well rounded experience.

WHEN YOU NEED MORE CLINICAL WORK
In our 2 day Intermediate barefoot massage class, you'll add in more detail work in both supine and when the client is side body. Some many therapists may be doubtful that they'll use side lying barefoot massage in their practice. When you learn this positioning in barefoot massage, you'll discover new ways to access muscles that are difficult in either a prone or supine position.
We'll show you easy draping and how to encourage your clients to receive therapeutic side body work. On top of that, the supine work is divine. Working the quads and adductors have never been easier, and our detailed barefoot massage in the neck is unlike anything you'd believe is possible with your feet.

ROM / Stretching
ADD ANOTHER DIMENSION TO YOUR BAREFOOT MASSAGE
ROM (Range of Motion) / Stretching may be taken after Fundamentals, Intermediate, or Advanced. This is a 2 day class where you'll learn types of stretching ( Passive, Active and Resisted Range of Motion).
We teach this so therapists can easily incorporate stretches into their existing barefoot massage sessions.
This barefoot massage technique allows the Massage Therapist to stand on a massage table and maneuver clients limbs with their feet while holding onto overhead support for balance and leverage. This helps a practitioner effortlessly maintain consistent pressure and leverage while providing deep point holds, or long fascial stretches.
Our ROM work can be done with the client fully clothed as well. Perfect for sporting events, farmer's markets, health fairs and when working with anyone who needs to be stretched!

Fijian Barefoot Mat (on the floor)
Fijian barefoot massage is perfect for those who would like to incorporate floor mat work into their massage. It's great for
This is a great introduction into barefoot massage, but it's not JUST that! I personally take a lot of the moves and have added them into my barefoot massage toolbox, which gives me additional ways to effectively treat my clients in "regular" barefoot massage sessions.
This work is derived from Lolita Knight, and we use the FasciAshi-fied version with her permission.

NOT JUST MORE PRESSURE
Our 2 day advanced class will teach certified Fundamentals Barefoot Massage Therapists how to not only use 2 feet on their clients with full body weight but also how to do more intricated moves.

This work is best suited for male clients who weigh a minimum of 50 lbs more than you and are solid. The 2 footed full body strokes are not recommended for female clients, but we'll teach you modifications of our strokes to suit your clients' needs.

Hot Ashi (pre-requisites: certified in Fundamentals)
Heat makes our barefoot work even more effective! It not only feels great, which client LOVE, but it's a perfect way to "marinate" your client's muscles before working them.
Using heated Mother Earth flax pillows, the therapist will use shearing compression through clothing or a sheet. We do not recommend skin-to-pillow contact unless a washable pillowcase is used.
This work is perfect for clients who love heat, are very tight, have a hard time relaxing, want to try something different, or simply want to experience the best you have to offer in your barefoot massage sessions.
