Group Trainings

Virtual Training is a great option for businesses that have multiple therapists to train. Learning remotely is the most economical option as it allows staff members to study at their own pace without missing work. Having a Certified DeepFeet Instructor available throughout their training to mentor and support your staff while they are learning sets your therapists up for success.

Our Ashiatsu virtual course was structured with the same quality and care we provide in a live classroom setting. We’re here to help students understand every element of Ashiatsu and barefoot massage so they can incorporate the best techniques into their practice while learning from the comfort of their home or office. Techniques taught are western focused and include cross-fiber friction, effleurage, petrissage, compression as well as trigger point and myofascial techniques.

Client and therapist safety is our number one priority which is why we have designed a certified level course with video feedback, reviews, and online or live certification with an authorized DeepFeet Instructor.

Upon completion, therapists will be confident in delivering a 60-75 minute posterior Ashiatsu Treatment. DeepFeet Virtual Courses are NCBTMB Approved and include the following:

  1. Posterior Seated/Standing Ashiatsu Techniques
  2. DeepFeet Methodology, Benefits, Top Guidelines
  3. Table Set up, Equipment, Safety, Supplies
  4. Barefoot History, Body Mechanics
  5. Anatomy & Contraindications
  6. Communication & Terminology
  7. Lubrication & Draping, Foot Care
  8. Exams, Client Practice Log & Feedback Forms
  9. Bar Construction Manual
  10. Marketing Ashiatsu

Course Requirements

Therapist Requirements

DeepFeet Courses Available To:

  • Licensed Massage Therapists
  • Massage students with 75% completion of schooling.
  • Licensed Chiropractors, Physical Therapists & Acupuncturists

Physical Expectations: We ask that you are healthy and free of any contraindications that would prevent you from receiving Ashiatsu in class.

Conditions include:

  • Pregnancy or trying to conceive
  • Uncontrolled High blood pressure
  • Recent injuries or surgeries
  • Contagious skin disorders
  • Compromised immune system
  • Acute liver or kidney disorders
  • Certain medications
  • Acute autoimmune disorders

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.

Course Expectations

Students will have 30 days to complete this course and receive full credit. In order to be successful in taking this course we recommend the following:

  1. Be physically healthy & fit and free of any recent injuries
  2. Have a strong understanding of anatomy, physiology and deep tissue techniques
  3. Be able set aside a minimum of 8-10 hours a week for study & practice
  4. Receive Ashiatsu sessions during your training from a Certified DeepFeet Graduate
  5. Perform 20 practice sessions on various body types

This is not a typical home study massage course that only involves a written manual and video instruction. Our course meets the standards of a true virtual training experience where students will log into a private, secure online platform. They follow a detailed course outline, and are tested on each lesson before they are able to move onto the following module. Most students will spend approximately 3-4 hours on the lecture portion of each class before viewing the Ashiatsu Video Instruction. Our primary goal is safety for both the therapist and the client. Making sure you have an understanding of proper bar construction, contraindications, and body mechanics is key to delivering a safe and productive Ashiatsu treatment.

Documented practice sessions are required to complete our virtual online courses and receive full CE credit. What sets our virtual courses apart from others is that our content is delivered in a fashion that is interesting, challenging and most importantly holds students accountable for learning and retaining the content so that you can practice Ashiatsu effectively and successfully beyond your time with us.

If you have multiple therapists you would like trained please email us for more info.
