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

I had my Ashi "ah ha" moment when I massaged an Ashiatsu Therapist. It was the first time in over 7 years in practice that I massaged an LMT without chronic tension and pain in their forearms. When I found out that the therapist I was massaging worked full time giving deep, therapeutic, bodywork with their feet I was intrigued. Suffering from chronic pain myself I was eager to find a way to stay in the industry and continue to do what I love to do most. The moment I signed up for a course with DeepFeet I felt like I re-invented myself in both my career and my massage style. I have been fortunate to train and work along side Nancy DeLong and Matt Dalton at Mudra Massage for the last three years and grow from an Ashiatsu therapist into a an Certified Ashiatsu Instructor. I am honored to be apart of the DeepFeet team and help save others from repetitive stress injuries. Come be inspired in Portland with me and let me show you a new way of thinking about bodywork and deep tissue massage techniques.

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.
