Hot Ashi

Relax Track Specialty training: 1 day, 8 CE's, $224

Prerequisites: Certified in FasciAshi Fundamentals

Learn to use heated flaxseed pillows to perform specific barefoot massage protocols for the client in both a supine and prone position, in Hot Ashi part of the our Relax Track specialized classes. Hot Ashi is performed through clothing on a massage table with overhead bars and a flexible strap for balance and shearing ability.

Heat is an effective way to relieve both chronic and new pain and aches as well as promote relaxation. Its use is non-invasive and non-addictive, inexpensive and easy to incorporate into massage services. Using therapist’s feet in conjunction with heat produces almost effortless results, both in relaxation and in stress / pain reduction.

A Non-Refundable $112 retainer is required to hold your spot in class - the remaining $112 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!)
