Using Passive, Active and Resisted Range of Motion techniques Traditional Thai massage, this Ashiatsu barefoot massage technique allows the Massage Therapist to stand on a massage table and maneuver clients limbs with their feet, while holding onto overhead support for balance and leverage. This helps a practitioner effortlessly maintain consistent pressure and leverage while providing deep point holds, or long fascial stretches.
A full body sequence is taught, and can be applied while the client wears loose clothing, or embedded into any barefoot massage session using secure draping while blending ROM with gliding movements along the client's skin.
Comprehensive “feet-on” practice will allow you to explore the strokes on different clients in class, and you’ll awaken your feet’s potential to intuitively “heel” and heal within a short period of time.
The strokes designed are based on years of barefoot massage experience with the Authors’ personal clientele base and of other therapists.
