Traditional Eastern

If you currently provide over-the-clothing modalities, have a set of Mobile Ashiatsu Bars and want to learn clothed barefoot techniques, or simply want to add more varied techniques that do not include any oils or effleurage to your repertoire, this is the course for you. Posterior and Anterior Stretching, Range of Motion (ROM), and Compression techniques are seamlessly blended to create and customize a 90 minute protocol for your clients. Portions of this course focus on techniques for Event and Sport Massage.


Introductory Seated

If you are interested in Ashiatsu but not ready to install bars, or want to try learning a bit of barefoot techniques before committing too much to the modality, this is the course for you. Intro Seated offers a 60 minute protocol of posterior and anterior upper-torso techniques that can be a stand-alone treatment session. Clients get to experience barefoot massage while you learn to incorporate the modality into your every day practice. It serves as a great introduction to Ashiatsu for both therapists and clients.
