Stretch Therapy training: Enhancing performance through mobility. Using Passive, Active and Resisted ROM stretch therapy techniques, this barefoot massage technique allows the Massage Therapist to stand on a massage table and maneuver clients limbs with their feet, using the strong muscles of their legs and hips. We hold onto overhead bars and lean into our suspended support straps for balance and leverage as we lift, bend and twist clients into stretches. This helps a practitioner effortlessly maintain consistent pressure and counter balance while providing deep point holds, or long fascial stretches. We also compress or restrict clients compensating body parts down into a neutral alignment while creating various ranges of motion throughout all major joints in the body. The FasciAshi therapist can observe movement patterns and queue the client into resisted actions to help build joint stability, and encourage their interoceptive awareness during passive stretching and proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation. We’ll be reviewing secure draping options while blending ROM into slow gliding, non-lubricated movements along the client’s skin. Can be adapted for more use of creme or provided with the client clothed. A full body sequence is taught. To attend this class, you must have attended one of the following classes: FasciAshi Fundamentals, Fundamentals Converge (this class is now discontinued, but still honored as a prereq.), or another continuing education providers beginner level ashiatsu course. Must show proof of attendance in a LIVE, in-person training that was at least 16 NCBTMB CE’s. Video audition may be required if your training is untraceable, or if it has been over 5 years. Class price: $447. You can choose to pay in full upfront, or make two payments. A non-refundable $223.50 retainer is required to hold your spot in class – the remaining $223.50 balance is due before class starts.
