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 both 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
construction. Therapists will gain enough knowledge and
confidence to deliver a thorough 60 minute posterior Ashiatsu
Upon completion of class you will receive 25 credit hours, which
