Learning Ashiatsu: Frequently Asked Questions #3

What is the class cancellation policy?

By signing up for one of my classes, your deposit serves as a commitment to train, that you agree to the Code of Ethics (see below) and the Cancellation Policy.

Non-Refundable deposits are required to hold your space in class. Your deposit will not be refunded should you cancel out of your selected workshop dates. Your deposit cannot be transferred to another massage therapist, or applied to another Ashiatsu instructors class. Only in the event of proper documentation of injury, pregnancy, death in the immediate family, or extreme weather prohibiting travel (airports and highways closed) will your deposit be allowed to be rolled over to a workshop at a later date. This special consideration will be allowed one time only by the discretion of the Ashiatsu instructor.

If you have other circumstances besides those listed above and still need to cancel out of your upcoming Ashiatsu class, you may roll your tuition over to the next Ashiatsu course offered at a later date by Jeni Spring, by giving at least 15 days’ notice and paying a $75 fee per class that you wish to roll over. Any notice less than 15 days is not eligible for rollover – unless the situation can be documented as mentioned above (injury, death in the immediate family, or weather prohibiting travel.)

There are absolutely no refunds for courses attended.

What if the class doesn’t meet its minimum enrollment requirements?

Luckily due to the popularity of our classes, we haven’t had to cancel or reschedule a class due to low enrollement in years! Typically it’s the opposite, we sell out months in advance – so early registration is always highly recommended.

Heeling Sole / Jeni Spring will happily refund all money for any cancelled seminars due to our responsibility – such as if the class minimum enrollment requirements are not met.

We reserve the right to cancel class 2 weeks prior to the event should there not be enough interest and minimums not met – for Barefoot Basics, Anterior/Sidelying & Ashi-Thai classes in San Antonio, Class minimum is 4 students. For Advanced Ashiatsu in San Antonio, or for any class held outside of San Antonio, class minimum is 6 students.

If registration is low enough for the instructor to choose to cancel class, you will be notified by phone 2 weeks prior to the scheduled dates. At such time, students can choose:
A) If they would like a 100% refund.
B) Roll your deposit over to the next listed class with no penalty

We do not recommend that you book airfare until you have confirmed with the instructor that your selected class has met the minimum enrollment requirements and will not be cancelled.

Can I leave class early, or arrive late?

This is a question that is unfair to the other students in class. Our Ashiatsu workshops are teamwork based, and being that we have SO MUCH ‘feet on’ practice time each day, if you aren’t there, then your partner is left stranded. We also have so much information jam-packed into class that e-v-e-r-y moment matters. There is no fluff or filler material in Ashiatsu training, we need to start promptly ontime and we typically go right up to the last minute of class each day, because our instructors are trying their best to make you the best barefoot massage therapist you can be!

As such, we do not allow partial credit hours, and cannot allow you to leave the class early. If you have to leave due to an emergency, we will withold your CE’s and eligibility to become certified until you re-attend the course to make up the missing time.

Also, if you are chronically late to class first thing in the morning, after breaks and lunches, we may reduce the number of CE hours awarded, due to lack of full attendance.

Please be respectful of our time as we work hard to teach you Ashiatsu!

Learning Ashiatsu: Frequently Asked Questions #2

Do I have to be a Massage Therapist?

Yes!

You must be a Massage Therapist to legally and ethically apply these advanced massage therapy Ashiatsu techniques to the public as service.
A license to touch and a license work in your region Jeni Spring, Ashiatsu Teacherwithin the massage therapy field is essential to keeping this modality within its profession, scope of practice and intended market. If you are still in massage school, we require that you have completed 75% of your required hours with a passing grade of a B average, currently have some form of massage student insurance (available through all the major massage insurance agencies/associations) and we will need a copy of your transcript. Jeni first learned Ashiatsu 2 days after completing her 1100 hour Massage Therapy school, and hadn’t yet taken her state or national test – but her passing grades, transcript from the school and her AMTA massage student insurance plan gave her the go-ahead to start her massage career out on the right foot! If you are in a state without licensure requirement, we will need a transcript from a 200 hour massage therapy program showing your passing grades, and proof of liability insurance.

Will I receive Continuing Education Credits for attending Ashiatsu Training?

If you are already licensed/registered/certified in your state, then the continuing education credits we offer are eligible for your license, association and board renewals. If you attend class prior to obtaining a state license, then the credits are still awarded but may not be honored by your state, being that the Ashiatsu course occured prior to your licensure. (Check with your state massage board to be sure!)

The Ashiatsu classes held at Heeling Sole are Nationally Certified through the NCBTMB. We are additionally approved for all states who take automatic reciprocity with the NCBTMB. (Arizona, Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia). Louisiana, Mississippi, Florida, Texas and New York are also ready to rock with your CE’s!

What about my Massage Association and National Board Renewals?

All courses offered by Jeni Spring at Heeling Sole meet Association of Bodywork & Massage Professionals (ABMP) and the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) eligibility requirements through the Center for Barefoot Massage’s affiliations. Our courses meet the high standards of the National Certification Board of Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork (NCBTMB), as well as the AFMTE (Alliance for Massage Therapy Educators) competencies. We adhere to professionally recognized codes of ethics and standards of practice with each of these organizations, as well as with the AFMTE, and we are committed to continuing your professional education and development. Most state massage regulatory agencies recognize the same number of continuing education hours reciprocally. Please contact our office if you have questions regarding whether or not your state has automatic reciprocity with the NCBTMB.
