3 DAYS, 24 CE'S, $670

Fundamentals barefoot massage is where it all begins! This is our introductory barefoot massage class where we use predominately one-footed strokes so that we can vary the pressure and weight of strokes depending on the clients' needs. Even if you have previous barefoot massage training this is a great place to start learning Fasciashi and how the Center for Barefoot Massage is different.

Barefoot massage techniques are applied to posterior aspects of the client’s body, and your weight and natural gravitational forces are utilized to effortlessly maintain consistent pressure. Comprehensive “feet-on” practice will allow you to explore the strokes on different clients in class, and you will awaken your feet’s therapeutic potential. You will also experience TWO days of the work from other therapists learning the technique. It's an amazing learning experience!


The strokes designed are based on years of barefoot massage experience with the authors’ personal clientele base and of other therapists.

Class time is usually 9 am-6 pm every day with a 1-hour lunch at 12 pm.

Retake Fundamentals for $100/day Learning to massage with your feet is a whole new ball game! Going back and getting your ashiatsu bars up took some time and you lost your edge... or you forgot some details… You are always welcome back to review everything all over again. No CE’s or course materials are provided, but you'll be partnered up with either a client or another Ashiatsu therapist who is also reviewing the class. So you’ll get to give and receive FasciAshi all day long while being tweaked and guided by the instructor. That's a WHOLE day of being a sponge, catching concepts or body mechanics that you may have missed before, AND getting a TWO hour massage for $100! Email instructor to see if there's room in the next Fundamentals class! Review just one day or all 3!
