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.

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
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) and learn how to incorporate the moves into your regular deep tissue ashiatsu barefoot massage session.
Techniques are blended with Table Thai massage--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.
A full body sequence is taught, and can be applied while the client wears loose clothing, which is perfect for clients who want to try "lazy man's yoga" or as a sport type massage.

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 advanced FasciAshi work encompasses more than just posterior work--we add in a Rotisserie series with partial and full side body work as well as more complicated anterior moves.
Make sure you are certified before signing up for our Advanced FasciAshi barefoot massage. 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.
