Discusses the basics of deep tissue massage and information about trigger points and referral patterns.
This class covers the whole body, everything that is covered in the two Deep Tissue and NMT videos. Get a 3-dimensional view of the muscles, which have been modeled out of clay and feature computer generated trigger point referral overlays. This great video not only covers neuromuscular therapy, but includes functional assessment work, so you know where to work, and how. Along with range of motion and resistive tests, you will learn basic postural evaluation techniques. As part of a comprehensive deep tissue treatment protocol, discover how to work on the tendons, ligaments and muscles with effective neuromuscular and deep tissue strokes. Finally complete the work with stretches.
This lesson shows how to work and test the internal and external rotators, as well as the flexors, extensors and adductor groups. Trigger points and referral patterns are discussed.
How to work on back pain, including working the QL, longissimus, multifidus, iliocostalis, plus how to friction the iliolumbar ligaments and release the psoas, iliacus and rectus abdomens, and more!
This lesson shows how to evaluate for rotation and lateral flexion, and how to work the muscles that limit these motions.
Shows how to evaluate the shoulder in 3 directions, how to release all the muscles that control the shoulder, as well as the trigger points and referral patterns.
How to help tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow and release the muscles that control extension and flexion of the elbow joint.
Learn how to evaluate the flexors and extensors of the thumb, fingers and wrist. Perform massage techniques to release all these muscles, and address carpal tunnel syndrome.
Shows how to evaluate the knee, and work the muscles that control flexion and extension. Also shows how to evaluate the medial and lateral collateral ligaments, and how to cross fiber friction these ligaments plus the coronary ligament, and around the patella.
Show how to work muscles that control the ankle, and friction the ligaments the stabilize the ankle.
