Seated Ashiatsu Barefoot Massage Training Class Barefoot Massage is a new course. A 12 CEU NCBTMB approved class training for massages therapist. It requires no bars. You will only need a massage table, a tall stool, and your two feet.
The routine addresses the client’s lateral issues. Instead of putting the client in a side-lying position, the therapists work from the side of the table, while they are face up or face down. Also, it eliminates the awkward draping issues of side-lying position. Plus, you don’t need any special equipment. Along with giving your hands a rest and put your feet to work.
Ashiatsu training is an intensive and fun class. We dedicate this course to the preservation of the bodyworker. The Barefoot technique can feel very awkward in the beginning. We base this barefoot wonder on an ancient Ayurvedic practice of Chavutti Thirummal. In addition, our training classes and workshops combine Swedish, Myofascial, and compression techniques. For Ashiatsu massage, therapist applies their feet to the body of the client. Thereby, giving the hands and thumbs a rest.Ashiatsu is an art, where the feet glide over the contours of the client’s body.
The pressure can be as light as a Swedish massage or the deepest massage a therapist can give. We change and adjust our course program to fit your needs. The workshop focuses on the hands-on technique of Ashiatsu. Also we do not claim that we own massage or invented it. Massage therapists are creative, intelligent, independent free-spirited thinkers. So we want to keep it that way. The Barefoot Masters® is the largest barefoot massage provider in the country.
WHAT MAKES THIS PROGRAM STAND OUT?
The course does not require any Ashiatsu Bars. Plus, all you need is a tall bar stool, you can bring on house calls as well. Furthermore, there are no height or weight restrictions. All the work is done on the massage table. Ashiatsu treatments are a more efficient application of deep tissue massage. Plus you receive your certification in class. We don’t require you give us a log sheet of clients before you can obtain your certification.
WHAT MAKES ASHIATSU GREAT!
The pressure is constant and maintained. Barefoot massage creates circulation. More circulation brings about faster healing. And, Ashiatsu brings about a relaxed state. In fact, this state of well-being lasts for hours after a massage service. Clients don’t walk out of a session – they float.

On day-one, we will eat lunch out and discuss marketing over the meal. Bring two sets of linens, face cradle cover, and one over-sized heavy towel for draping. Also, therapists need to have their feet pedicured and wear no toe or ankle jewelry. You may want to bring a pair of house shoes to wear while training to keep your bare feet off the floor.
For class, please wear loose, comfortable clothing. Yoga capris or pants work best; if you wear yoga pants, we’ll roll the pant legs up to the knee. Men find basketball shorts or sweatpants to be most appropriate.
