There is a way to give the depth and pressure many clients seek without taxing your own body- Ashiatsu Massage! And the best way to learn it is YOUR way! Rather than following a “routine”, in this class you’ll be encouraged to make the modality your own from the start-you’ll continue using many of the techniques you already know- you’ll simply learn how to do them with your feet! This is a comprehensive course - you’ll leave ready to practice a full body Ashiatsu Massage!
Ashiatsu is as versatile as traditional massage- pressure is easily adjusted from deep tissue to relaxation massage- plan on practicing Ashiatsu on most of your clients - they love the comforting pressure of feet and frequently comment they can’t tell it’s not hands!
As a therapist you’ll find it fun to practice- like dancing or practicing yoga! And working with the lower body significantly reduces the stresses to your body! Wouldn’t you love to end your massage work day feeling invigorated and stretched?
Diane developed a unique four bar system that allows you to work all areas of the body from supine and prone with no need for side-lying positioning and draping! And forget about going into the ceiling for bar installation! You’ll be given details for free standing Ashiatsu bar construction that can be adapted to fit any treatment space!
Topics covered include: Contraindications, body mechanics, draping and bolstering, foot care, marketing, and bar installation. You should be generally fit, have good balance and coordination and some flexibility. No weight limits, but contact us prior to enrollment if you have concerns regarding the physical requirements of this course.
