My first class teaching Ashiatsu was so much fun!
By Hillary Arrieta
This year I joined the teaching crew at the Center for barefoot massage!
I've been in a teacher training program since January and I've learned SO MUCH this year.
Even though I've already trained for years in this technique, I can see how I've barely scratched the surface. There's so much to know, refine, and refresh. I think that is why I am so drawn to this massage - and massage therapy in general. I've been truly lucky to have such amazing mentors and now students who teach me so much about my work. Yes, I'm the one teaching but it's incredible how much I also learn.
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. Also, I'm so thankful for my teacher, Jeni Spring who flew up here from San Antonio to make me first class a success. I couldn't have done it without her guidance.
I'll be teaching a semi-monthly FUNdamentals class 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.
