The Advanced Deepfeet Bar Therapy™curriculum utilizes a variety of barefoot techniques to improve the client’s postural alignment, range of motion, muscle responsiveness and overall health and well-being. As a practice, it is compromised of a set of unique and proprietary foundational and structural techniques, Utilizing what we call the “3 Connects”. The first connect is compression, the second connect is engage and the third connect is activate.
Together these three techniques work in harmony to provide an effective muscle release technique that is beneficial for clients experiencing pain and limited range of motion from repetitive stress injuries, work out related soreness and past traumas or injuries resulting in scar tissue formation.
Client assistance during the application is involved with multi-positioning to locate the anterior, lateral, medial and sagittal muscles in relationship to surrounding structures and landmarks.
Upon completion and practice, students will gain enough confidence and knowledge to perform up to a 2-hour Ashiatsu including posterior, anterior and side lying barefoot massage techniques.

The art of learning effleurage fluidly with the feet can be physically and mentally challenging. A successful learning environment depends on team participation.
If you have any physical ailment or debility that may interfere with you or your classmates’ learning process, please contact us in advance. Our first priority is safety for all students and guest clients participating in our workshops. A private one-on-one class may be available if you require extra time or attention. Each student will give and receive two or more hours of Ashiatsu on the first two days of class. Although Ashiatsu is incredibly relaxing, it is also a deep compressive form of massage that is not appropriate for all conditions.
