Ashi-Thai is an expression of traditional Thai stretches that have been modified utilizing the overhead bar system
and therapists’ body so no heavy lifting or bending occurs at the waist. This flowing and rhythmic approach to
Thai massage were developed for Ashiatsu therapists seeking to expand their barefoot knowledge and add more strokes
to their Ashiatsu tool bag. Ashi-Thai can easily be incorporated into a regular Ashiatsu session or can also be
considered as a stand-alone treatment. The Ashi-Thai workshop has been divided into two different modules, the
posterior module & the anterior module. The combination of techniques has been arranged following traditional Thai
energy lines and stretches for elongating and relieving tightness in commonly used muscle groups. Clients usually
feel more range of motion, less tension and an overall sense of balance and well-being.

About the Instructor
About a year after graduating massage school, I knew I was in trouble. Every night I would come home in pain from a full day of deep tissue massages and wonder if there was a better way. It took me another couple years to find what I was looking for, but oh boy did it all change after I attended my first Ashi class in 2011! Almost seven years later I have a successful career all based around Ashiatsu. And now I have the opportunity to help others find out how amazing and rewarding this type of massage can be; working smarter not harder. Our classroom is half way between Chicago and Detroit and has plenty of activities for outdoor enthusiasts. I invite you to come and see where Ashiatsu can take you!
