We have designed a comprehensive three day class that teaches licensed professionals how to administer barefoot massage techniques that offer students both posterior and anterior protocols. Barefoot massage techniques taught are western focused and includes: effleurage, petrissage, compression as well as some trigger point and myofascial techniques.
You will have lots of “feet on” time in this class. Though we use the parallel bars in the ceiling to regulate our weight, we do have some fitness levels /weight guidelines associated with taking this course. Our teaching methodologies are designed to work with each practitioner’s skill level, physical characteristics and learning style. Emphasis during the three-day workshop will be on body mechanics, barefoot application, contraindications, certification and bar construction.
This introduction to barefoot massage course includes both posterior and anterior protocols so that upon completion the body-worker will be able to deliver a 90 minute rich and detailed supine and prone Ashiatsu session. .
We not only do we train you how to use your foot as a massage tool – we also teach you trademarked sequence that has proven to be successful, so you will walk away with confidence and certainty to start practicing your newly acquired barefoot skills right away. Making sure you are safely up and operational before you leave the workshop is our number one priority. With over 25 years of experience, we set the standards when it comes to barefoot bar work.
Upon completion of class you will receive 25 credit hours, which you can apply to your NCBTMB certification, AMTA or ABMP renewal. 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.
