Event Description

For therapists with some barefoot experience. Learn a short, new sequence on the bars then practice with your partner. Ask questions about your current barefoot practice and get feedback from your peers and instructor. All previous training in barefoot bodywork on the table is acceptable - with or without bars, one day classes - all ok. It's ok if you haven't been practicing, this could be your chance to get inspired again or just have an enjoyable time sharing with your classmates.

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.
