This is our introductory course to Ashiatsu Barefoot Bar Therapy. Therapists will have lots of “feet on” time in this 3-day comprehensive class. Barefoot Curriculum includes prone and supine, seated and standing Ashiatsu Techniques. Our methodology is western focused and includes cross-fiber friction, effleurage, petrissage, compression as well as some trigger point and myofascial techniques.
The emphasis during this course will be on body mechanics, barefoot application, contraindications, certification, and bar construction. Therapists will gain enough knowledge and confidence to offer up to a 90-minute full body Ashiatsu treatment.
A non-refundable deposit of $325 is required to hold your spot. Once you complete the registration process a confirmation email will be sent to you. The remaining tuition balance will be due to your instructor two weeks prior to class.
Upon completion of this course, you will receive 25 CE hours. To become certified in Ashiastu DeepFeet Bar Therapy students are required to perform a practical on day three of class, complete an online quiz and submit 20 documented practice sessions.
Please review the following before registering:
We ask that you are healthy and free of any contraindications that would prevent you from receiving Ashiatsu in class.

The art of learning effleurage fluidly with the feet can be physically and mentally challenging. A successful learning environment depends on team participation.
If you have any physical ailment or debility that may interfere with you or your classmates’ learning process, please contact us in advance. Our #1 priority is safety for all students and guest clients participating in our workshops. A private one on one class may available if you require extra time or attention. Each student will give and receive two or more hours of Ashiatsu on the first two days of class. Although Ashiatsu is incredibly relaxing, it is also a deep compressive form of massage that is not appropriate for all conditions
We reserve the right to cancel class up to two weeks prior to the event if there are less than four students registered. This is highly unlikely to happen, in the event that it does we try and give students as much fair warning as possible. At such time, students can choose a 100% refund, or roll their deposit over to a future training with no penalties.
Your $325 deposit is non refundable should you cancel out of your selected workshop and the scheduled workshop takes place. A tuition roll over to a future workshop is allowed in the event of a healthcare emergency, pregnancy or injury. Two weeks notice is required and the fee to roll over the tuition is $75. When buying airfare, we suggest purchasing a ticket that is refundable should a schedule change occur.
Ashiatsu DeepFeet Bar Therapy
About the Instructor
I graduated from The Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy in 2002 and was immediately known for my deep tissue work. I knew early on that I would burn out quickly if I didn't continue my education and seek more productive and pain-free methods to provide therapeutic techniques. So in 2003, DeepFeet Bar Therapy came to town my town and without any hesitation, I signed up! Shortly after, my class, I started working for the New England DeepFeet instructor and attended classes as often as possible especially if the class needed an extra “student” to even out the group. I became addicted to Ashiatsu and the benefits it was providing to my clients and myself. After having 3 children, and practicing Ashiatsu throughout each pregnancy I was lucky to keep building my practice and now am finding a need for more Ashiatsu therapists in my area. Becoming a Deepfeet Instructor was a natural progression and has allowed me to grow in my skillset and also spread my knowledge for barefoot massage with other therapists seeking new tools and methods for deep bodywork techniques. I look forward to taking you through your first Ashiatsu steps and introducing you to the amazing world of barefoot massage! China Facchini AshiatsuMyrtleBeach.com
