We are excited to partner with Sarga Bodywork and offer a DeepFeet Ashiatsu course utilizing their innovative Sarga Floor System. Please note, that this is not a Sarga Bodywork Course, this is a DeepFeet Course utilizing our trademarked protocols. This course does not qualify as a pre-req for advanced Sarga Bodywork Courses.
Deepfeet Silks is a 2-day course that teaches students how to properly install and utilize the Sarga floor system. Barefoot techniques taught are western-focused and include a variety of new DeepFeet strokes, to deliver an effective and therapeutic Ashiatsu floor massage treatment. The course focuses on the posterior aspect of the body and includes some anterior protocols so that upon completion the body-worker will be able to deliver a 60-90 minute Sarga Silks session. This course is ideal for mobile therapists, therapists who cannot install overhead bars, or anyone seeking NEW barefoot methods to enhance your practice.
We not only do we train you how to use your foot as a massage tool, we also teach you a trademarked sequence that has proven to be successful, so you will walk away with confidence and certainty to start practicing your newly acquired barefoot skills right away. Making sure you are safely up and operational before you leave the workshop is our number one priority. With over 25 years of experience, we set the standards when it comes to barefoot massage.

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.

In addition, picking up marbles or small objects with your feet will help with dexterity and fine motor movements.
