DeepFeet 1

Barefoot Basics

 

3 Day, 25 CEU's NCBTMB & NYS approved - $750

We have designed a 

comprehensive three-day class that teaches barefoot massage techniques with a western focus and includes cross-fiber friction, effleurage, petrissage, compression as well as trigger point and myofascial techniques.

You will have lots of “feet on” time in this class. The 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 detailed supine and prone Ashiatsu session.

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.

Bars-Free

Seated Ashiatsu 

8 Hour 8 CUE's, NCBTMB & NYS approved - $225.00

This one-day introduction class to (seated) barefoot massage is taught in our DeepFeet 1 Basics Course. 

 

Taking the Bars Free Seated portion will allow you to dip your toes in the water and get a taste of Ashiatsu without having to install the overhead parallel bars. You will learn a full 60-minute barefoot protocol that combines seated prone, supine as well as side-lying barefoot techniques.

 

This course will not only include warm up strokes such as effleurage, petrissage and compression but will include deeper techniques such as cross fiber friction, positional release and trigger point therapy.

 

 We train our students to work “smart not hard” and find that the seated introduction course is a great class to start the thinking differently in the way you perform deep tissue massage techniques.

DeepFeet Ashi-Thai

2 Day, 16 CAU's NCBTMB & NYS approved - $500

Ashi-Thai is an expression of traditional Thai stretches that have been modified utilizing the overhead bar system and therapists’ body so no heavy lifting or bending occurs at the waist.

The combination of techniques has been arranged following traditional Thai energy lines and stretches for elongating and relieving tightness in commonly used muscle groups. Clients usually feel more range of motion, less tension and an overall sense of balance and well-being.

 

At the end of this course you will have a unique new skill set that your clients will be extremely impressed with.
