You receive all the class materials in advance to prepare before you even step into class. And you have two years of access to those materials. Deep Tissue Massage is the bread and butter of a massage therapist’s practice. Ashiatsu will produce the results that your clients crave. Please give them the best deep-tissue massage they have ever had.
The pressure of Ashiatsu is constant and maintained. The deep strokes and the increased circulation in the body bring 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.
We base Ashiatsu Bar Massage on an ancient Ayurvedic practice of Chavutti Thirummal. The therapist uses their feet to massage the client’s body instead of using their hands and thumbs. In addition, our training classes and seminars combine Swedish, Myofascial, and compression techniques.
Ashiatsu is an art where the feet glide over the contours of the client’s body. So, 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. Likewise, massage therapists are creative, intelligent, independent, and 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? Ashiatsu treatments are a more efficient application of deep tissue massage.
The overhead or floor Barefoot Bars are for balance and support. You do not have to have a lot of upper body strength to perform Ashiatsu. Furthermore, there are no height or weight restrictions. The massage table must sustain both the weight of the client and the therapist.
USE OF BARS FOR BALANCE AND SUPPORT
NO HEIGHT OR WEIGHT RESTRICTIONS
PRESSURE IS CONSTANT AND EVENLY MAINTAINED
CREATES MORE CIRCULATION
THERAPISTS FEEL LIKE THEY HAVE PERFORMED A DANCE INSTEAD OF A WORKOUT
THIS THERAPY IS A MORE BALANCED APPROACH TO MASSAGE
The first deep tissue of the day is as good as the last one. There is none of the usual pain associated with deep tissue massage for the therapist or client. The therapist gains strength, knowledge, and grace. While at the same time adding diversity and vitality to their workday. So you can do more of what you love forever.

TO HOLD A SPOT FOR Naples FL Ashiatsu Bar Massage CE Training Class 35-7-23
Our Ashiatsu training is an intensive and fun class. Initially, using your feet to massage can feel very awkward. We dedicate this course to the preservation of the body of the bodyworker.
DIGITAL MANUAL: The Ashiatsu course manual consists of pictures with descriptions. As well as for instructions that cover the entire anterior and posterior routine.
VIDEO: We view the video during the workshop as part of the course plan. We use most of the class training for hands-on application of the Ashiatsu technique.
LECTURE TIME: This time use is for discussing marketing and contraindications.
The final part of the seminar is spent putting the routine together, so it flows. The trainee will perform a 20-minute practical on the instructor. We use this time to fine-tune the application of movements, pressure, and placement. The primary goal of the course is to ensure the success of every therapist in the class. Contraindications for the class are the following—those who have had implant surgery for less than nine months of pregnancy.
The cost of the class is $625 per person. This fee includes a digital course manual and instructional video. We accept cash, checks, and credit card payments.
**Cancellation Policy: There is a $75. the non-refundable fee for any cancellations. 1/2 of the class fee is non-refundable 31 days before the workshop. And we can apply all but $75. to a home study or another live training date conducted by the same instructor within a year. The class size is 6. In the rare event that the instructor cancels or reschedules the class, the student receives all monies given for the class tuition only. However, if the rare event instructor reschedules a class again, you will receive $75 off your tuition on the first day of class or when the class is paid in full. Please give at least one month’s cancelation notice as there is typically a waiting list of others that could take your spot given enough time to prepare. The policy does not supersede other Barefoot Masters® instructors.
This class is an 18-hour Hands-On CE course over a 2-day session; hours are from 8:30 am to 6:30 pm on day one, then 8:30 am to 6:30 pm on day two. Also, there are breaks during class, but please come to class well-rested! Trainees need to bring snacks. A refrigerator is available for drink storage. Please bring a bagged lunch for each day of class.
What massage therapists need to bring to class.
Therapists need to have their feet pedicured and take off the toe or ankle jewelry. You may want to bring a pair of socks to wear while training to keep your bare feet off the floor. Also, we recommend tank tops because they can get quite warm when standing at the table: comfortable stretchy capri pants or knee-length shorts without strings and long stretchy pants that roll up. We do not recommend shorts, skirts, or dresses. However, you may want to bring a sweater or cover-up between sessions.
For all workshops, we provide Ashiatsu Bar, Stools, and Lotion.
Classes are held in Naples, FL, and we provide all the linens.
For classes outside of Naples, FL, bring one fitted sheet, a face cradle cover, and one oversized beach towel for draping for each day. Also, you may need to bring a massage table but check first to see if it’s needed. Please read our blog for more information on the Ashiatsu Bar Massage CE Training class.
