If you’ve ever had a barefoot massage client who is so tall that they have to duck to get through your doorway, then you can bet they’ll be so tall that they’ll dangle off the ends of your ashiatsu massage table, too! Today’s tip tells you about a little-known massage table accessory – the head rest extender. Contact a FasciAshi Instructor to buy one at a discounted price!
You can also use a footrest extender at the other end of the table – but in both cases DON’T STAND ON THEM!! (They really only can hold enough weight to support the client, not also your bodyweight.) We’ve previously shared a barstool trick that allows you to stand off to the side or on a diagonal if you need more leverage to lunge into those larger clients.
While we love a 35″ table, some rooms just aren’t big enough for them. And some massage therapists have a perfectly good table and prefer to stick with a more standard 32″. When you do ashiatsu, you need to have room on the table, but what do you do if there are simply no room for your feet? Stand on your short stool. This will provide a safe footing for you when you do your barefoot magic.
