Ashiatsu Therapeutic Massage Certification for Beginners

We've designed a 3-month mastery course in ashiatsu. You will learn everything from the basics of ashiatsu massage to the advanced techniques of our very own Ashiatsu Therapeutic Massage. You will also learn how to lead your clients thorough an intake and outtake process that will give you the confidence to create a proper treatment protocol. At the end of our 36 hour program accredited by the State of Texas, you will be certified in Ashiatsu Therapeutic Massage and ready to take your massage career to the next level.

Ashiatsu Therapeutic Massage is the result of owner Cathy Walker’s professional experience over the past two decades combining techniques from her background in Chinese Medicine, cupping therapy, ashiatsu massage, deep tissue therapy, Shiatsu, trigger point therapy and myofascial release.

Our next training course begins on May 15th and meets every other Monday through August 20th. Regular labs and practice sessions are scheduled between classes. To register, email us at info@austinashiatsu.com
