This year, I joined the teaching crew at the Center for Barefoot Massage.
Since January I've been working my soles off and taking a deep dive in to Ashiatsu.
Even though I've already trained for years in this technique, This process showed me that I'd barely scratched the surface. There's so much to refine, and polish before I could bring Ashiatsu Barefoot Massage classes to Dallas. I've been lucky enough to have Strong mentors and students who teach me the intricate details of my work. When you teach, you learn too. September was my final teacher evaluation in the teacher training program and I had it in my brand new teaching studio. It's small but MIGHTY!! I'm so grateful to the students who challenged themselves physically and mentally through this three day workshop to learn or fine tune their skills.
I'll be teaching a semi-monthly Ashiatsu classes here in DFW for 2018 and I'll be adding some new barefoot massage modalities and workshops to the training schedule in 2019.
I've been wanting to bring more barefoot massage to Dallas and to the North Texas area for a long time and it's finally happening. Trainings are open to any licensed massage therapist. Find out more at on our Texas Ashiatsu training website.
Traveling to Dallas for a Workshop?
Center For Barefoot Massage
You will be getting 2 hours of deep tissue massage each day so please prepare yourself by getting some bodywork before class. Class isn't the time to work out your tissue issues and if you're not prepared, you may have some mild adverse reactions to so much deep work over so little time. Hydration, stretching, working on foot dorsiflexion and mobility as well as hip, knee, leg strength/mobility will give you more confidence during your workshop. See the full guide for all the details.
