ZB.) Treating the Feet & Indian Head Massage: Both Classes (Seattle November 4, 2017)


Product Description

Instructor: Debbie DeNardo LMT; NCBTMB #452031-12

Saturday Morning - (Treating the Feet: Turning Tired Feet Into Happy Feet)

Feet function as the body’s shock absorbers and are many times the hardest worked of all body parts. They are what hold our weight up all day long, and the longer we walk or stand, the more tired they become. When walking, there are times the pressure on the feet exceeds the body weight and when running, it can be 3 or 4 times the body weight. Unfortunately, many of our clients experience foot fatigue on a regular basis and a one hour massage session does not allow us enough time to pamper and fully address the issues of the feet.

This specialized foot treatment requires a minimum of 30 minutes to perform and can extend up to an hour to fit the needs of the client. It is a 4-part treatment employing 4 different products and massage therapies as follows: 1) foot soak with compression, 2) circular effleurage with abrasives, 3) pressure point therapy with foot mask and 4) rejuvenating foot massage with lotion. The client is comfortably seated during the entire process. It can be offered as an add-on service to a full body massage or it can be a focused session on its own. Add it to your menu of services to increase your income and to further service your clients.

What to Bring: Set of sheets and bolster/pillow. 1 bath towel, 3 hand towels, 1 coffee carafe or pitcher, 1 pair of latex or vinyl gloves (optional) and a pillow/bolster. Please wear loose pants that can be pulled or rolled up to the knees (or a pair of shorts).

Saturday Morning - (The Best of Indian Head Massage)

Indian Head Massage is based on the ancient Indian healing system of Ayurveda and has been practiced for over a thousand years. This course focuses on scalp and face techniques and includes over 30 of the most useful and beneficial strokes that Indian Head Massage has to offer. The massage is calming yet revitalizing and combines effleurage, stroking, kneading, friction, percussion and pressure point techniques. It supports the nervous system by alleviating stress, encouraging the elimination of toxins and increasing oxygen uptake in tissues. Indian Head Massage encourages deep relaxation and can help eyestrain and headaches. It boosts hair health, improves concentration by enhancing blood flow, calms the mind and eases emotional stress.

Participants learn not only the best of traditional seated Indian Head Massage techniques, but also how to adapt the strokes to every day table work. Oil is recommended but optional for the scalp massage. The instructor includes organic Ayurvedic herbal scalp oils from Solavedi.

What to Bring: Set of sheets and bolster/pillow. Please have clean hair and use no hair products on the day of the class.
