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.
