Supine and Side-body training: It’s time to get more intricate: access more muscles in both supine and side-body positions! This intermediate ashiatsu class empowers the experienced barefoot massage therapist to work even slower, maintain long sustained pressure holds on trigger points or adhered layers of tissue, and deliver deep myofascial strokes to the anterior and lateral aspects of your client’s body. Supine and Side-body strokes will give you the tools to provide a comprehensive feet-on practice in the often forgotten, hard to reach areas of the body. We share how to work along the topography of our clients bones, and manipulate the length of each muscle and fascial chain. Intricate use of the ashiatsu support strap is a big focus in this class. This unique addition to the overhead ashiatsu bars allows us to work on variable angles and vectors with consistent, controllable pressure that prevents fatigue for the massage therapist. To attend this class, you must have attended one of the following classes: FasciAshi Fundamentals, Fundamentals Converge (this class is now discontinued, but still honored as a prereq.), or another continuing education providers beginner level ashiatsu course. Must show proof of attendance in a LIVE, in-person training that was at least 16 NCBTMB CE’s. Video audition may be required if your training is untraceable, or if it has been over 5 years. 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.
