What if...

  • In addition to the wonderful benefits from the usual relaxing massage, you could create a massage that incorporates a whole new approach to touch?
  • A massage that literally communicates trust and relaxation without triggering the client's automatic defense system, in an environment that eliminates distractions?
  • A massage that is centered upon reaching and maintaining the Delta state of relaxation, so crucial to every aspect of healing?

As you can imagine, the therapeutic benefits would be profound.

The Delta Wave Massage,™ created by Brad Drummer, LMT, and based upon his theories on Delta Wave relaxation, IS that massage.

Delta Wave Massage is designed to bring the body and mind into a delta relaxation state, which is the state in which nearly all physical, emotional, and nervous system healing takes place. The results of this new form of massage therapy has garnered the attention of the medical community, sparking interest in research studies to learn more about its healing potential.

Through this video and text-based course, you will:

  • Explain the history behind Delta Wave Massage and why this methodology is important
  • Utilize the Delta Wave philosophy, also understanding the healing aspects it provides
  • Define specific terms and concepts important to Delta Wave success (subconscious, elementals, defensive reflex, sequencing to enhance)
  • Approach and interact with clients through massage via universal physical components
  • Compare pain/fear vs. pleasure/trust approaches, understanding how each impacts the client
  • Observe and perform Delta Wave Massage strokes using proper body mechanics and structure your own Delta Wave Massage therapy session

There is much evidence regarding the effectiveness of massage as a stress reducer and sleep aid. Any relaxing massage can slow down the mind’s activity by easing tension and fear – but only the Delta massage makes deactivating a person’s defensive system central to the session. The potential for dramatically improving every aspect of a person’s well-being should make achieving Delta through massage an aspect of every massage no matter what the modality. What is more – it should be a key component of every patient’s recovery plan.

  • Develop the importance of listening, and how massage/touch can be the most powerful and precise form of communicating with a person

  • Compare the approach that pain and fear vs. pleasure and have on a client's experience and overall therapeutic benefits received from the massage
  • Define the Delta Wave state, its healing aspects and various methods used to achieve Delta Wave activity

Course Reviews

Madelynn Knoespel, LMT


Everything is well set up so the student can learn quickly yet get the required credits easier than going to in person classes. Some of the subjects are very interesting and I enjoyed them much. This one was okay.....

Jana Mahnken


Very little demonstration-- this course is more geared toward learning about how to energetically interact with a client than it is a massage method. I did learn a couple of things that I can implement in a massage, and I appreciate that.



This is a very interesting course! A lot of never before known knowledge and Ive been a therapist for 10 years now. My only complaint is that some of the information wasn't clear that was also on the test and I felt like I had to guess a lot instead of feeling confident in my answers.

I couldn't get the video to work and got suggestions from staff. Thanks. I felt that some of the explanations were long and laborious, other parts didn't seem clear or concise. But I enjoy the information. This is work that the average massage therapist would benefit from however I don't think most want to put that much thought into it.

Michelle Jack


It really took much longer than 4 hrs to complete the course. I would have liked more demonstration of the techniques in the video. Some of what he was showing in the video you couldn't see because he was on the other side of the table.
