This is where it all starts for everyone...the essential basics. This 3 day introductory course is designed to teach licensed professionals how to administer comprehensive massage techniques and offers students posterior barefoot protocols. Therapists will have lots of “feet on” time in this class. Though we use the parallel bars on the ceiling to regulate our weight, we have some fitness levels /weight guidelines associated with taking the Barefoot Basics class. Our teaching methodologies are designed to work with each practitioner’s skill level, physical characteristics and learning style.

During your study with us, you will have an opportunity to experience and perform barefoot strokes on each other in addition to seasoned guest clients. Emphasis during the three-day workshop will be on body mechanics, barefoot application, contraindications, certification and bar construction. Therapists will gain enough knowledge and confidence to deliver a thorough 60 minute posterior Ashiatsu treatment.
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.
