Ashiatsu DeepFeet Bar Therapy

About the Instructor

I started my career as a massage therapist in 2011. Directly out of school I started my own practice and I quickly fell in love with helping others. Most of my clientele want to deep tissue work; however, about a year after I began I found that my wrists and lower back we’re in pain from attempting to deliver the pressure needed for affective work. I was heart broken to realize I was going to have to cut back on my clientele and it felt like my career as a massage therapist had a limit. Ashiatsu was a natural choice for my career. It hit a reset button and got me excited about bodywork again. Clients loved the deep and effective work and I was completely pain-free after four months of practicing Ashiatsu. My teaching studio is located right next to the ocean in Ventura, California. A walk on the beach is just a stone throw away. I am exceedingly excited to teach other massage therapists this modality. It is such a gift to watch students walk away with such a solid tool to transform their practice and relieve their lives from repetitive stress injury‘s. Throughout the course you will receive personalized one on one instruction and will leave class with confidence to provide a complete full body Ashiatsu session. I look forward to shining a new light on your career as a barefoot healer! Come get some California sun and enjoy the laid back beach vibe in Ventura while you learn this truly unique form of massage.

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.
