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

Christy is a proud native of beautiful Colorado. She carries dual licensure in esthetics and massage and has been a trainer in both for big name brands and resort spas across the country. Feeling stagnate in her massage career Christy was ready for a change and signed up for a DeepFeet Ashiatsu course on a whim. Little did she know it would completely take her career to the next level. Immediately after class she felt a new sense of renewal and was excited to be able to stay in the industry and keep doing what she loved most. Her passion now is to share the same gift to massage therapists as she has done for so long with estheticians; teaching professionals how to stay in the business longer and increase their income by offering innovative and in demand massage techniques . Christy has studied and co-taught Ashiatsu with our founder Ruthie Hardee for several years and now teaches out of her home studio in Parker, CO. When Christy is not teaching Ashiatsu she is chasing her toddler, playing with her pups and enjoying the beautiful Rocky Mountains. Come get inspired in the mile high city and get barefoot with Christy!

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.
