Treating the Feet: Turning Tired Feet Into Happy Feet with Debbie DeNardo

Instructor: Debbie DeNardo LMT; NCBTMB #452031-12

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

These classes are normally $90 each and we are offering them at a discounted price of $75 each to encourage LMTs to register for what they are interested in, whether it's 1, 2, 3 or all 4 classes.  If you are interested in more than one class, just add each one to your order.  The other 3 classes are:
