We like to keep our seminars casual and informal. My goal as your instructor is to provide a healthy, learning environment with the emphasis on safety while allowing you the opportunity to grasp the basics of Ashi Thai®. You may feel a bit overwhelmed with all the information you will receive in 2 days time, so bring your energy and enthusiasm with you to class. A healthy fitness level will help you enjoy the stretches from your working partner and we trust that you are coming to class with no injuries. You will need to sign, on the first day of class, ethics & liability agreements. Please contact me at email@example.com with any questions about this prior to class. A 2 disc Ashi-Thai educational DVD set is available for purchase for $100 during class time if you'd like.
Linen List: You will need per day -
ü 1 fitted massage table cover,
ü 1 face cradle cover,
ü 2 medium kitchen or hand towels,
ü 1 queen pillow w/cover
ü 3 king or queen pillow cases.
ü Linen rental is available for $10 per day.
We recommend that you bring things to pamper yourself at the end of each day. It is very common to experience soreness from receiving & giving the Ashi-Thai work if you are not flexible or if you do not stretch on a regular basis. Bath salts and a warm bath or steam shower are highly recommended after class.
To reserve a spot in our small (8) person workshops you need to send a deposit check for $200 or reserve your space with a credit card. Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy® was the first group ever to introduce certification training in barefoot massage with bars over head in the United States. The Ashi-Thai class is accredited for 16 NCBTMB CE hours. We pride ourselves in small intimate seminars. This gives eight lucky therapists the opportunity to experience the ultimate in learning. If you would prefer a private tutorial, the tuition would not fall under the guidelines of the $399 tution and would increase by $100 per student. We reserve the right to cancel class 2 weeks prior to the event should there not be enough interest. At such time, students can choose if they would like a 100% refund, roll their deposit over to another scheduled class. You may also choose to pay the $100 additional for a private workshop.
Your $200 deposit is non refundable should you not show or cancel out of your selected workshop when scheduled workshop takes place (exceptions being dire circumstances). We will refund 100% of the deposit for any cancelled seminar that is due to our responsibility.
Make sure you have plenty of travel time both into and out of Cincinnati. Therapists who rush in the morning of the seminar and/or try to rush out directly after the seminar tend to feel drained and overwhelmed. Arrive the night prior to class and stay close to the seminar site for an easy commute. Please get a good night's rest before class starts each morning. Certain guidelines must be adhered to in accordance with the National Certification Board of Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork, and with the State of Ohio. Punctuality is a must! You will only receive full credit hours on your transcript if you are on time each day. We will be working in teams each day, so if one person is late, it will affect the entire team. Make your travel and hotel plans with this in mind. If you wish, I can send you contact information of other out of town students should you wish to share accommodations at the host hotel near the training facility.
