6750 Poplar Avenue, Memphis, TN, USA



Event Description

Two days of training (14 CE) that present a choreographed sequence for client’s upper body in supine and prone positions. Students watch demonstrations by the instructor then practice on each other while following instructor cues. On the last day of class students will perform the full sequence from start to finish on a guest client chosen by Elevate Massage Training for their ability to receive the work and provide constructive feedback. No experience required for this beginner level class. Seated Barefoot Bodywork is performed sitting on a stool at the head of the massage table. You’ll need enough flexibility to step up and swing one leg over to the other side of a 28” stool and sit comfortably with your back against the wall, knees together as in a cannonball position. *This course counts as 14hrs of the required 70hrs core coursework requirement for the Primary Barefoot Bodywork Program.

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.
