Event Description

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

When I first started massage school I read about Ashiatsu Bar Therapy and I was amazed and intrigued. I found a certified practitioner in my area and after receiving my first session, I was blown away and knew it was for me! It became my goal to become a Certified AOBT therapist as soon as I could. I took my barefoot basics course just before I graduated from massage school and doing so was the best thing I ever did for career. I have continued to work smarter not harder, giving my clients the therapeutic deep pressure they need with out injuring myself. I hope to see you in one of my workshops in Clinton, Connecticut. The shoreline of CT is a relaxed beach community - with beautiful views of the tidal Hammonassett River from my studio - I encourage you to pursue this amazing modality. It will change your life!

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.
