Portable Bar Liability Waiver & Purchaser Agreement 


The following disclaimer is provided for all purchasers and users of this product.  Acknowledgment and signature of all terms and conditions with all clauses are required by the purchaser before sales transaction can be completed. Ashiatsu Institute, LLC DBA Ashiatsu Deepfeet Bar Therapy is referred to as the company throughout this agreement. 

The Deepfeet Portable Bar apparatus is designed to be purchased by massage professionals who have successfully completed our Deepfeet Bar Therapy educational program and work in accordance with the laws of their state regarding massage.

Our company takes seriously the responsibility of educating others in the professional barefoot massage. Our main objective is that the public is safe from harm and the Deepfeet brand and methodologies are represented with the utmost respect, integrity, and quality. While our company is proud to produce this magnificent product, the intended use for the apparatus is not to be a substitute for the standard overhead bar installation shown to you during any instructional class. 

The unit was retrofitted to connect with a wooden adjustable massage table 32″-35″ wide.  To help ensure that the product is used properly, we recommend you use a durable table with similar specifications as the Earthlite 32″ or 35″ inch Spirit table. Static weight: 3200 lbs. Maximum working weight: 800 lbs. Furthermore, the apparatus has an intended use for balancing and leverage while the working foot stands on the table, as opposed to weight-bearing or pulling up into bars for stability. We do not recommend any double-footed strokes on this apparatus. We will not fix any damages, offer refunds or exchanges for any portions of this unit should damage occur due to weight-bearing, excessive force/torque or any other said actions. 

Additionally, the product is designed for use in private practice by licensed professional massage therapists. Deepfeet Portable Bars are intended for non-instructional use only. This unit is not sold for commercial use nor for teaching others by the purchaser or re-sold by the purchaser to a 3rd party for instructional use. By your signature below, you agree that you will never use or resell these bars for the purposes of instruction of any form of massage therapy. Any infraction against this agreement will result in legal action including monetary damages. 

Purchaser waives all liability and claims for any modifications, adjustments, drilling holes or any other means of attaching apparatus to a massage table or altering unit in any way. Ashiatsu Institute, LLC is not responsible for any wear-and-tear, damages or repairs after the first assembly and use, not to exclude: blemishes, scratches, dents, loose hardware, broken hardware, swelling of handrails, creeks or noises coming from articulating wooden joints, or ungluing.

Any damages occurring during shipping will need to be directed to UPS.
