E-Learning is a great option for businesses that have multiple therapists to train. Learning via the web is the most economical option as it allows staff members to study at their own pace without missing work.

Our Ashiatsu E-learning course has been created with the same amount of quality and care that we put forth in our live classroom teachings. We’re here to help students along the way to understand every element of performing the best barefoot massage techniques they can and learn from the comfort of their home or office. Techniques taught are western focused and includes 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 our e-learning series with video
feedback reviews and skype or live certification with an authorized deepfeet instructor.

Upon completion, therapists will be confident in delivering a 60-minute prone Ashiatsu Treatment.
All DeepFeet E-Learning Courses are NCBTMB Approved and include the following:

Our comprehensive Ashiatsu E-learning course has been created with the same amount of quality and care that we put forth in our live classroom teachings. We’re here to help you along the way to understand every element of performing the best barefoot massage techniques you can.

This is not a typical home study massage course that only involves a written manual and video instruction. Our course meets that standards of a true E Learning experience where students will log into a private secure online platform and 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 our lecture portion of class before viewing ashiatsu video instruction. Our number one 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 e learning courses and receive full CE credit.  What sets our E Learning Course apart from others is that our course 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.

We offer three comprehensive packages to choose from that were designed to suit your individual needs. All packages provided will prepare you to offer Ashiatsu as a service in your practice. However, in order to market yourself as a DeepFeet Certified Therapist you must complete the Pro Certification Course.
