Physical expectations:

The art of learning fluid effluerage strokes with the feet can be both mentally and physically challenging.  A successful learning environment depends on everyone participating as a team.  If you have any concerns with weight, coordination, sight, hearing, learning disabilities, language barriers, or any special requirements or health conditions that may interfere with learning, please contact us before registering for a class.  Our number one priority is client and therapist safety.

Whether you are male or female, any therapist that weighs over 200 pounds should contact DeepFeet to discuss fitness levels and upper body/core strength needed to deliver a comfortable session to your receiving partner the first two days of class. 

If you are pregnant or trying to conceive, please wait until after you deliver the baby to attend any training.  Ashiatsu is contraindicated for all pregnancy situations. 

If you've had any type of implants or major surgeries within 9 months, please confirm with your physician that DEEP, gravity assisted compressive massage is not contraindicated for your condition.
