Great info! I've always worried about DVTs in my practice, but never had very indepth training on them. I will be much, much more aware as I move forward, and the screening sheet is going to become part of my new-client paperwork. Thank you!

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.

I thought that the course was exceptional. I love the DVD and the handout flipbook coursework. They are presented very clearly and are an excellent reference guide. I know that I will be using these techniques in my practice and I will be able to refer back to both the DVD and handouts whenever I have a client who presents with specific type injuries.
The Side-Lying Massage course exceeded my expectations. The material was very easy to understand. I liked the workbook that can stand on edge and the content in it was very clear and concise. The videos were also very good. I can't wait to use these techniques in my practice, and I would recommend this course to anyone. After taking this course, I am interested in taking other courses taught by Dr. James Mally.

I have been a professional massage therapist since 1999. This course was so educational. I will be honest, I thought it was going to be boring and dull, but it was so informative. I will be looking at my intakes much more carefully, especially when clients request deep tissue therapy.
