Start here: Deep tissue massage doesn’t have to be hard… even on the big guys. This beginner ashiatsu training will teach you how to use your feet to provide a full body deep tissue, myofascial release and trigger point work focused barefoot massage session. This class focuses on techniques applied on posterior aspects of the client’s body, as your weight and natural gravitational forces are utilized to effortlessly maintain consistent pressure through your feet. While the work is focused primarily with the client prone, therapists will learn supine work as well. Fundamentals is the starting point for those wanting to train in FasciAshi barefoot massage – although it’s a “beginner” class, it is definitely not easy. Review your bony landmarks, endangerment sites, and muscle pathways – as well as the anatomical terminology that goes along with all that! FasciAshi sessions use overhead support bars as well as our proprietary Ashi-Strap to help regulate your pressure, flow and balance while the client lies on a massage table. No prerequisite needed – other than you MUST be a licensed massage therapist. Class price: $670. You can choose to pay in full upfront or make two payments. A non-refundable $335 retainer is required to hold your spot in class – the remaining $335 balance is due before class starts.
