24 CE HOUR COURSE

$200 DEPOSIT

This is an intensive, entry level course with no pre-requisites.

3 days, 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Ashiatsu Barefoot Massage makes it possible to achieve a more effective massage with longer lasting results, all while conserving energy by using bodyweight & gravity. In this course, therapists will learn skills and techniques of posterior and anterior Ashiatsu Barefoot Massage from seated and standing positions. Upon completion of this course, therapists will be able to provide a 90-120 minute therapeutic session for their clients with their own individual after-class practice time. This course provides a 90 minute protocol to assist therapists in building a strong foundation in this modality. Learning to work seamlessly, with ease, is simplified by using a general protocol to practice with in the initial learning phase. It is necessary to install bars to provide all of the work learned in this course.

This is an intensive, entry level course with no pre-requisites.

1 Day, 9 AM - 6 PM

For a beginning Barefoot Massage Therapist:

This course offers an opportunity to commit to a day-long course, practice replacing hands with feet, develop skills to enhance palpation, and invest in the course and a bar stool instead of the whole kit necessary for most Ashiatsu therapists to practice easily and safely with: a solid, larger-seated bar stool, a wider, softer (electric) table, and the set of bars over the table. This modality has proven easier to learn in levels by far, and this class offers therapists the time to practice barefoot techniques, integrate the Seated work into their current clientele, and build a budget for the bars & table that will come with standing work. It’s also an advantage to be able to share the modality by using for outcall or demonstration purposes which is difficult to do without bars.

For an experienced Ashiatsu Barefoot Massage Therapist: 

This course provides many more techniques taught in this course than the Introductory Course. It offers specific techniques to alleviate shoulder, upper back, and pectoral pain which a large percentage of society suffers from. There are smaller muscles that need to be worked to achieve these results which requires palpation and concentration to learn, even for a skilled barefoot practitioner. This course may be used in demonstrations or outcall massage, as the only necessary equipment is a bar stool, no bars, which can make the two situations difficult to do.

The skills and quality of work that develop through allowing yourself to learn more at any level of practice are invaluable. Southwest Ashiatsu always offers retakes and audits for all classes because we know how important your career and your clients are to you.

See policy information and Register for Retakes & Audits below.

Retakes

A Retake is full participation in all scheduled bodywork hours and optional note-taking hours. Retakes mean that you will be giving and receiving the bodywork, able to ask all the questions you have, and participate fully in as much of the lecture and note taking of class as you wish, including taking pictures and video.

All of our courses contain specific techniques, methods, & information that will be new to you, no matter when or where you took a class. Twice per year, each course is evaluated and effectively revised to keep a consistently, updated foundation of research & development that has put Southwest Ashiatsu at the highest level of quality education. 

If you're experienced with or have taken a Beginning Course with another provider, you are welcome to enroll in our Introductory Course as a Retake. There are many different techniques, body mechanics, and general information taught in all of our classes that it's necessary to enter our method with the Introductory Course at any level of training outside Southwest Ashiatsu

Registration is mandatory to Retake any course.

INTRODUCTORY RETAKE $275*

EXTENDED SEATED RETAKE $100*

EXTENDED STANDING RETAKE $150*

EXTENDED TWO-FOOTED RETAKE $100*

ADVANCED PRO RETAKE $130*

[ *Deposit For All Retakes $50 ]

AUDITs

Once you've taken a course with us, you are welcome to audit portions of the same course(s) for up to 1 year after your original class date -at no cost. After 1 year, audits are $20 per hour audited. Audits do not require bodywork given/received, and may have limited note-taking hours and questions asked dependent upon the number of registrants and other auditors in that class. No credit hours are supplied for auditing a class. You may select the portions of class you would like to hear/see again to be notified of those times in the class schedule. Auditing means you will be observing only - and for limited time frames. You may take notes, however we ask that you refrain from taking video or pictures during audits - it's absolutely ok to do so in a retake, when you are a full-participant in the class. 

It is mandatory to register to audit any course in any of our locations and discuss what portions you'd like to audit with the instructor prior to class. Previous schedules for the same course may have changed since you last attended. We highly recommend retaking a course to be able to give or receive the bodywork portions of that class. 

All of our courses contain specific techniques, methods, & information that will be new to you, no matter when or where you took a class. Twice per year, each course is evaluated and effectively revised to keep a consistently updated foundation of research & development that has always put Southwest Ashiatsu at the highest level of quality education. 

 Registration is mandatory to Audit any course.

 

"Training with this magnitude of intensity deserves one to one attention." -Brenda Blakesley

Learning this modality at any level is intense: initially, it requires a higher level of physical fitness & challenges one’s mental capabilities, all while learning to use your feet as hands. In class, we compare it to getting behind the wheel of your car and trying to drive off using only your feet! Regardless of one’s physical & mental fitness levels, barefoot massage has challenging aspects while learning it and any distraction can be too much. 

Why take a Private Class?

 You can schedule class when it’s convenient for you, your family, and your work schedule. You're able to work at your own pace and on what you need the most, without having to wait on other classmates. How you learn best is determined within the first few minutes of a class and will directly affect the teaching methods used for you to get the most from your work and efforts. 

Private classes result in greater retention of class material & techniques. With only you learning, there is less distraction, more time for your questions and thoughts to process. There is more time to practice, hence more time to receive the work as well. There is a higher level of feedback and communication in a smaller, private setting—honesty & integrity increase with the comfort of fewer people to perform in front of. It’s all scheduled by your pace, not the rest of the class.

Group rates require submitting Registration Forms and sending a deposit of 50% tuition for the total number of therapists taking in order to schedule class, flights, lodging, etc..
