This rich, valuable educational program can enhance the work of even the most experienced massage therapists, physical therapists, chiropractors, acupuncturists, and naturopathic doctors.

State-of-the-art computer graphics, anatomical illustrations, clearly presented demonstrations, and three-dimensional teaching aids enhance the 90-minute video presentation and provide vital insights on how to more effectively help clients.

With thorough, clear cautions, 55 different procedures are introduced and demonstrated. The user-friendly, photographic, 55-page text closely follows the video program. Recommended practice sessions with a colleague or family member are facilitated with a guided exercise included in the workbook.

Course Reviews

P. Campbell, LMT

This was the best online class I have ever taken. Dr. Mally was very specific and detailed. I felt he did not leave anything out when it came to detailing the stroke and also draping the client. The book followed the video so I was able to pause the DVD, read the section and then watch Dr. Mally perform the stroke. After five years as a massage therapist, I felt this was the best class to review my deep tissue massage applications and to learn new strokes. I highly recommend this class.

B. Parry, LMP, NCTMB

This course was one of the most interesting and comprehensive courses I have taken in the past 13 years since my licensure as a massage practitioner. I look forward to ordering other courses offered by Dr. Mally.

J. Marie, LMT, AMTA

Was very informative and kept my interest throughout the course. I liked that the video showed different views of the procedures along with what muscles and bones/joints were involved. Highly recommend this course to anyone interested in learning more about deep tissue techniques!

N. Vandeveer, LMT, NCTMB, AMTA

This is the best of any home study courses I have taken thus far. The video is excellent, clear, and concise. Having the workbook that closely follows the video program is invaluable. One can quickly look up a massage technique to practice and use on a client. It will definitely be a part of my everyday practice.

J. Rapala, NCTMB

The content was well paced, had clarity and did not contain a lot of fluff or trivial details - it just condensed to the most critical points of each move. Also helpful were the adjuncts such as computer skeleton and [under-the-table] plexiglass views.
