Barefoot Massage Training


Our barefoot massage training builds on each other with skill, depth, and theory. We recommend you allow three months between each level of ashiatsu massage training when possible. Use that time to practice and get to know the work before moving on.

The deeper you get into your FasciAshi training, the more you can niche into your specialty. New Ashiatsu MassageTrack classes are in the works, building the rosters within our Relaxation, Sports, and Clinical areas of study. Every Massage Therapist is different based on their training and experiences - and it should be the same for every Barefoot Massage Therapist! Follow the arrows to see what your next step is.

Want to get ashiatsu certified? We are currently revamping on our certification process and will provide "Endorsements" rather than certifications.

What our students are saying:

"Julie is an excellent teacher. I took Fundamentals,intermediate and advance with Julie last year. I learned in grew so much as a barefoot massage therapist. Her Knowledge of an anatomy is amazing. She is a patient supportive And fun, teacher. I highly recommend taking a class from Julie"



"Julie is fantastic! I took her fundamentals class recently. She was so positive, calming, and patient when teaching, demonstrating, correcting technique, and answering questions throughout the three days. In the months leading up to the workshop she was responded quickly to my email inquires. If you are on the fence about taking any of her classes, go for it! You will not be disappointed!! I look forward to taking more of her classes in the future as I embark on this new journey."

-Kate D


"I have had the opportunity to experience training in Ashiatsu classes as a student, along with massage as a client from Julie. She is a wonderful instructor and I learn more each time I attend a class or have a session with her. If you are a massage therapist and interested in expanding your techniques or modalities, I encourage you to attend one (or more) of her classes. If you are seeking a massage therapist for your own personal experience, look no further. Julie not only addresses any issues you may be having but you are guaranteed to truly escape and find that deep, yet invigorating state of relaxation."

 -Penny Wariner



"When I first signed up for Barefoot Basics, I thought it was going to be like any other CE course I've taken. Boring, boring, and boring. But it wasn't. Julie managed to engage all of my senses during the course of the program. Which not only allowed me to learn but also retain the information shared. Her personality is A+ as well as her hospitality. I really loved the fresh hot tea to soothe the lesson over. But to top things of, she has a genuine care for students. While she could probably be in her office during breaks and lunch with her feet kicked up or handling some business stuff, she made herself available to each and every one of us. She keeps is real yet professional. And make sure that you're secure with what you've just learned before leaving for home. And even after you leave, she extends herself to help guide you towards being the best Ashi-practitioner you can be. I highly recommend that if you're in the area and looking for a fun and exciting CE course, stop by the Durham campus to see what new tools you can add to your massage toolbox."

-Sarah McDonald



"Just took my 4th barefoot massage class with Julie! She is a wealth of knowledge and a wonderful instructor! Always willing to help/answer questions after the class ends too, which has very helpful for me."

-Lauren Gardner



"I recently completed the level two Ashiatsu course with gifted instructor and therapist, Julie Marciniak. Bringing Ashiatsu into my massage therapy practice has been tremendously valuable for myself and my clients. Such a powerful way to give a wonderful deep tissue massage. I'm thrilled to have learned level two. My clients are loving it and this kind of work has truly revolutionized my practice. Only the highest praise for Julie Marciniak's insightful and always professional instruction."

-Kirsten Tiedemann

"Yet another great class with Julie and her amazing foot work! I just couldn't wait to come home and implement my new techniques from our intermediate class this past week. My clients are very happy with what I've learned and so are my feet! Thanks again Julie, I'll be back soon to continue my Ashi journey."

-Natasha Thoesen

"This is my first class with Julie for barefoot massage training and what a great experience! I would highly recommend this instructor for your next certification. They are the BEST! A much-added value to my practice and my body. Thank you so much"
