Bull CIty Soles Massage & BodyworkStudio

Ashiatsu Training Info &
Other Things

NC Ashiatsu is located inside of Bull City Soles Massage & Bodywork Studio.  If you are FLYING - We are 20 minutes from Raleigh-Durham International( RDU) airport.  In addition to a SouthWest hub, we have several airlines serving RDU, making it extremely easy to travel to our studio!   The following recommended hotels are 5 minutes or less from the studio:


Courtyard Marriott     919.309.1500

Holiday Inn Express  888.465.4329

Hampton Inn              919.688.8880

Hilton Garden Inn      919.286.0774



We recommend checking out Air B&B in the 27705 and surrounding zip codes. Many fantastic accommodations nearby may be cheaper and have more personality than a hotel room(depending on the cleaning fee!). However, you need your sleep, and if possible, make sure that your accommodations will allow you to rest after class.  There are many choices close to downtown or just minutes right around the corner from the studio. Check out our Google map below of cool places to eat and things to do while you're in the Bull City area.

Try not to wait until the day of class to drive into town if you are coming through Research Triangle Park(RTP) or even Greensboro. Allow for an hour of just traveling through RTP during work hours.

You will receive the linen list appropriate for each Ashiatsu massage training once you register with your deposit but here's a general idea of what you need for EACH DAY of class:


  • soft pedicured feet

  • your favorite massage cream/lotion(preferred over oil)

  • 1 top & bottom sheet

  • 1 face cradle cover

  • 1 washcloth or kitchen-sized towel

  • 2 king pillowcase covers

  • clean slippers(cool weather) or flip-flops(warm weather)


We supply all stools, pillows, face cradles, and tables with an 800-pound working weight capacity. Linens may be provided for a $20/day fee if you choose not to bring your own.  The studio is equipped with a fridge and a microwave for you to bring snacks or lunch and there's free ample parking.

There are several things we need to know in order to create the best environment for you to learn.



  • Bring the dimensions(ceiling height, width, length) of your massage studio, mainly where your ashiatsu bars will be installed.

  • Review the Ashiatsu Training and Use Agreement

  • PARKING - Please DO NOT park directly in front of the office(leave these for Bull City Soles Massage & Bodywork clients) but in the parking spaces closest to the road. 

  • Punctuality is a must! Certain guidelines must be adhered to in accordance with the NCBTMB, and with the various states. You will only receive full credit hours on your transcript if you are on time each day. 

Cancellation Policy

Before you sign up for our class, please read, the "Before you sign up for our Barefoot Massage Training" blog post. By signing up for one of our ashiatsu massage classes, your retainer serves as a commitment to training and the Cancellation Policy.


There are no refunds for courses attended.


A non-refundable retainer of 50% is required to hold your space in the class. Your retainer will not be refunded if you cancel out of your selected workshop dates. Only in the event of proper documentation of injury, pregnancy, death in the immediate family, or extreme weather prohibiting travel (airports and highways closed) will your deposit be allowed to be rolled over to a workshop at a later date. This particular consideration will be authorized at the discretion of the Ashiatsu barefoot massage instructor.


If you have other circumstances besides those listed above, you may roll your tuition over to the next FasciAshi barefoot course offered at a later date by Julie Marciniak by giving at least 15 days’ notice and paying a $75 fee per class that you wish to roll over. Any notice less than 15 days is not eligible for rollover – unless the situation can be documented as mentioned above (injury, death in the immediate family, or extreme weather).


Bull City Soles/Julie Marciniak will refund all money for canceled seminars due to our responsibility – i.e., if the class minimum enrollment requirements are not met. We reserve the right to cancel class 2 weeks before the event from lack of interest or if class minimums are not met( 4 students. min). 


If an instructor chooses to cancel class due to low enrollment, you will be notified by phone two weeks before the scheduled dates. In the rare event this happens, we can refund all money paid towards classes or roll over into the next scheduled class.
