private classes

"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?

 Taking a private class has many benefits, one being that every minute is catered to your needs. The fewer the people in one class, the more time there is for your own detail, attention, and questions to be addressed. Fewer people also means less distraction or intimidation to be a beginner with this challenging-to-learn modality. 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. You can schedule class when it’s convenient for you, your family, and your work schedule.  

To schedule a private class, use the "Contact" page or button to inquire about dates and locations and scroll down to view cost and options.

Private classes result in greater retention of class material & techniques. There is more time for the person working 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. 

HOURLY TUTORING

$50/hour or $350/8 hour day

For therapists who have taken Ashiatsu/barefoot effleurage massage previously (with any company, at any time), wanting to improve their skills and increase their quality of work. Through a complimentary consultation, we will determine what's most important for you to focus on and the number of hours needed for your session. It is possible to choose what you'd like to work on most: body mechanics, creating a protocol, refining specific techniques, gaining knowledge of equipment set-up and supplies to make your work easier.

The rates above are for you to come to the Las Vegas or Tucson location. For Brenda to travel to your location, additional costs such as airfare, transportation, and lodging will be arranged. Please contact her directly to discuss options via email or phone:
