Fijian Barefoot Massage

Floor-based training: 2 days, 16 CE's, $447

Prerequisites: Licensed Massage Therapist

Adapted and brought to the United States from the Fijian and New Zealand Islands by Lolita Knight, this style of barefoot massage is performed on a floor mat, with the client clothed. Fijian Massage incorporates specific, deep pressure followed by a vigorous jostle movement to the larger muscle groups. Fijian Massage works with intensity buy using our strong toes and bony aspects of our feet to create simple, rhythmic stroke repetitions.

Often times the therapist will find themselves seated in a chair or the floor while providing strokes. The use of overhead bars is not required  -  but the BodyCusion system is. We may stabilize our balance with the Ashi-Strap, a chair, or any other balancing tools such as a bamboo staff rather than bars. 

A Non-Refundable $223.50 deposit is required to hold your spot in class - the remaining $223.50 balance is due before class starts.

Change is hard, learning is a process.  Maybe you didn't get your bars up right away, and you are forgetting the details.... maybe it's been a few years and you feel rusty. For best retention of the concepts, theories, strokes and adventures we experience in class, you are always welcome back to review everything all over again. No CE's or course materials are provided, but we'll partner you up with either a client or another #AshiatsuTherapist who is also reviewing the class, and you'll get to give and receive FasciAshi all day long while being guided, and tweaked, by the instructor.  (Get a 2 hour massage for $100?! Not bad!)

Attend the 1st day of any Fijian class for a review of:
