Video Encyclopedia of Medical Massage

Dear colleagues,

Fifteen years ago I was the first one to introduce Medical Massage to American massage therapy society at large and I am glad to be that pioneer. Teaching and practicing Medical Massage became my life long goal. Since my book is more about practice of massage then about a theory, it would be incomplete without me giving your a reference material, a collection of 12 instructional DVDs, that would validate all the opinion statements that I’ve made throughout the book. Below you’ll find the list of more than 55 topics that I cover on these DVDs. By choosing to study from my hands-on DVD instructions, you can be sure that you study from original source and from practitioner with 35 years of clinical, research and educational experience.

Why choose these DVDs instructional material?

1. This method is very easy to study at home, because of the step by step protocol design.
2. Some individuals learn material better in a classroom setting, and some learn better in the comfort of their homes using text and DVD’s. Also this DVDs should be used as video library.
3. Due to the nature of human brain, by viewing my demonstration multiple times you will adopt (copy) the details of the presentation, such as rhythm (frequency) and aspects of gradually increasing pressure, correct bio-mechanics and more, which can significantly improve the your sense of touch and will help you to prevent job related injuries. It’s like having a private lesson with me in your living room with the only difference that you can always view it again and again.
I believe that continuing education courses are fully dedicated to improve and complete professional skills of practitioners. From 12 home study courses, practitioners will be able to choose a topic of their interest in order to enrich their knowledge and enhance their professional repertoire.
