This extensive NEW set (seven DVD’s, 9+ hours) was created after countless requests from therapists who loved the first very detailed set, “Deep Tissue Massage and Myofascial Release,” and wanted help implementing the techniques into a smooth, well-planned full body massage routine. The first set gave you the techniques. THIS SET shows you how to use them, and was designed as an expanded SEQUEL, not just an update of the first. You will be able to see all of the techniques used in real world settings to satisfy your clients’ desire for both extremely effective therapeutic work, but in a fluid full body massage rather than isolated spot work. Both sets work create a a complete encyclopedia of deep tissue massage.

More about this set: Art moves from A to Z, covering the whole body from prone to supine, with an entire DVD devoted to the important side-lying position, followed by two entire DVDs demonstrating full body massage to different models with different needs. Since the focus is upon smooth massage, less time is spent on biomechanics (which is where the great detail on strategies, techniques, anatomy, and treatment of injuries offered in the first set comes into play), but a huge number of specific nuts and bolts techniques are demonstrated. If you have felt constrained by set routines that limit your creativity, great care is taken to provide a logical rationale for session planning according to your individual clients’ needs so each massage is an extremely effective and fun adventure letting you choose which of the numerous techniques you will utilize. This will be particularly beneficial for those working in a therapeutic and spa settings who want to distinguish and elevate themselves from the common cookie cutter routine sometimes associated with that kind of work.

Art Riggs is a Certified Advanced Rolfer and massage therapist who has been teaching bodywork since 1988 and now sells Myofascial release videos and manuals worldwide. A lifetime of hard physical activity and high level athletic pursuits including ultra-marathons led him to bodywork, first as a grateful recipient, and later as a student. The fulfillment he experienced in both receiving and performing bodywork led him away from his graduate studies in Exercise Physiology at the University of California, Berkeley to a full time career as a Rolfer and teacher of Deep Tissue Massage. He has conducted numerous workshops for health spas and for medical professionals, including physical therapists, and has assisted in Rolf Institute trainings.

For the first ten years of his practice, he specialized in myofascial release at a physical therapy clinic where an interest in the treatment of injuries was cultivated. He has worked with several Olympic athletes, professional football and basketball players, and professional dancers and musicians to treat injuries and to improve performance. However, his teaching and the practice of working with the general population to provide a better awareness of their bodies and allow more ease and comfort in their everyday lives remains the most gratifying aspect of his work.
