If you’re a therapist performing deep tissue massage day after day, and have clients that continually request deep bodywork then Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy is the workshop for you!
We have successfully helped thousands of therapists, saving their hands, back and wrists from repetitive stress injuries. Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy is a truly unique form of barefoot massage that allows you to flow into a creative space where you can utilize your entire body to deliver a deep, soothing, therapeutic massage. Going with gravity instead of fighting it, Ashiatsu therapists enjoy the ease of simply focusing their weight into the area they're working on. This modality will noticeably extend the life of your massage career!

This is the introductory class to Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy. Therapists will have lots of “feet on” time in this class. Strokes learned will be with one foot, focusing on the posterior aspect of the body. By the third day therapists will deliver a full prone Ashiatsu massage on a provided male guest client. Emphasis during the three-day workshop will be on body mechanics, barefoot application, contraindications, marketing, and bar construction. A deposit of $300 is required to hold your spot in class. Only eight students maximum per workshop.

Pre-Requirements: Barefoot Basics
The anterior approach to Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy is a wonderful complement to the posterior strokes learned in Barefoot Basics. This one-day course is conveniently taught right after Barefoot Basics to continue the flowing barefoot effleurage and to deliver a full body Ashiatsu treatment. If you plan on offering an Ashiatsu session over 60 minutes or full body Ashiatsu treatments, then you really want to consider taking this class. The anterior portion of the class focuses on safe application of barefoot massage performed on the supine aspect of the body, while side-lying is more of a clinical approach, working with the client’s assistance to massage muscles such as the QL’s, Teres, Serrates, Lats and upper traps.

Ashi-Thai is an expression of traditional Thai stretches that have been modified utilizing the overhead bar system and therapists’ body so no heavy lifting or bending occurs at the waist. This flowing and rhythmic approach to Thai massage was developed for Ashiatsu therapists seeking to expand their barefoot knowledge and add more strokes to their Ashi tool bag. Ashi-Thai can easily be incorporated into a regular Ashiatsu session or can also be considered as a stand-alone treatment. The Ashi-Thai workshop has been divided into two different modules, the posterior module & the anterior module. The combination of techniques has been arranged following traditional Thai energy lines and stretches for elongating and relieving tightness in commonly used muscle groups. Clients usually feel more range of motion, less tension and an overall sense of balance and well-being.
