Event Description

Stand on the table and apply a flowing, deep, Swedish-style massage with one foot while using the non-working foot and bars on the ceiling for support. You'll need a moderate level of core and upper body strength and some confidence in your ability to balance.

Learn protocols for treating sciatica, shin splints, back pain, limited shoulder ROM, tennis elbow and more. Throughout the training students will give and receive techniques with classmates and instructor then put the entire sequence together at the end of class. With a few practice sessions and some modifications to your treatment space you will be ready to offer ashiatsu on your menu of services!

Ashiatsu Massage

Few deep tissue techniques can work deeper than ashiatsu massage, a type of massage that uses the practitioner’s feet as well as hands, fingers and elbows to apply pressure. A typical ashiatsu setup includes both a massage table and ceiling-mounted bars that allow the practitioner to stay steady while standing on the table and applying targeted pressure with bare feet. It is an ideal way for massage therapists to reduce hand strain, and it can be performed with the client clothed.

Because ashiatsu is founded on traditional Chinese medicine, many ashiatsu massage trainings will cover energy meridians and mind-body balance, but not all courses take this approach. Some focus only on proper technique, safety and building your own strength and balance for better sessions.
