What does a Barefoot Yomassage® Session look like?

Barefoot Yomassage® is a transformative experience using medium, broad, consistent pressure with feet and body weight to nourish the mind, body, and soul. Each session begins with a five-minute deep breathing ritual or a unique themed meditation that helps ground you in the present moment. You’ll enter a deep state of relaxation as you’re guided through a series of six restorative stretches while a Yomassage therapist provides therapeutic and guided meditation.

When practiced regularly Yomassage can help with stress, sleep, anxiety, depression, loneliness, feelings of connectedness, digestion, pain, and more. Compared to a normal swedish massage, Yomassage releases more muscle tension, gets deeper into the connective tissues without accessing pain receptors, helps maintain a deeper state of relaxation, helps the client to relax and release earlier in the session, and activates more sensory receptors.

Barefoot Yomassage® sessions are led by massage therapists certified in Barefoot Yomassage® and can be 1-1, or the therapist can serve clients in a small group of 4 or less.

The Yomassage Therapist training was exceptional. The hybrid of virtual and in-person training was ideal. I highly recommend this well-organized, beautifully presented course.

Belita P.

I am so happy during this challenging time to be able to take the Yomassage session I love the idea of combining massage and yoga. I feel very empowered to move forward with this from the virtual training that I just completed.

Linda C.

A fresh new way to care for clients in your practice, and help them make self care a priority. So thankful I took this course, and I highly recommend it to any massage therapist wanting to help more clients, or looking for a way to refresh their practice.

This course was wonderfully informative and supportive. No lollygagging's. Everything was straight to the point, and the practice was effective.

This technique and business opportunity is a great way to offer massage to more clients, while keeping it affordable and accessible to people who don’t get massage often enough. I’m very inspired and excited to bring this technique to my area.

Amazing virtual course. Clear and concise instruction, instructors that care, and a unique learning experience. I'm very happy to have enrolled in this course to share Yomassage with my community.

As a Restorative Yoga Instructor and Massage Therapist, I'd been looking to incorporate hands on in my sessions. This sessionwas just an absolute manifestation of my desire. It really made me feel right at home with the technique.
