These seven videos can stand alone, or act as a companion / visual guide to the Art Riggs Massage Therapist Manual: A Visual Guide to Techniques. The set is designed as a full study clinical training course for massage therapists wishing to expand their skills within the realm of deep tissue massage and myofascial release.

The program is so comprehensive, that schools have been able to formulate a comprehensive education course of up to 100 hours (including hands-on practice) around the progressive format of this video series. Many massage training products just show "strokes" without delving into the complex issues of soft tissue restrictions, osseous articulations and strategies for working with the multitude of different issues we face as therapists.

This extensive training series not only shows countless strokes and techniques, but will, more importantly, demonstrate the qualitative art of working with deep tissues to effect profound change.

Many additional strategies are also covered, such as working off the massage table in seated and standing postures and suggestions for rehabilitative home programs of strengthening and stretching for your clients.

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.
