Event Description

Save your hands, stay grounded, and take the option to sit down with this floor-based matwork massage!  Adapted and brought to the United States from the Fijian and New Zealand Islands by Lolita Knight, this style of barefoot massage is performed on a floor mat, with the client clothed. Fijian Massage incorporates specific, deep pressure followed by a vigorous jostle movement to the larger muscle groups. Fijian Massage works with intensity by using our strong toes and bony aspects of our feet to create simple, rhythmic stroke repetitions.Often times the therapist will find themselves seated in a chair or the floor while providing strokes. The use of overhead bars is not required – but a body bolstering/cushioning system is. We may stabilize our balance with the Ashi-Strap, a chair, or any other balancing tools such as a bamboo staff rather than bars.No prerequisite needed – other than you MUST be a licensed massage therapist. Class price: $447. You can choose to pay in full upfront, or make two payments. A non-refundable $223.50 retainer is required to hold your spot in class – the remaining $223.50 balance is due before class starts.

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.
