An Essential Massage Training VideoStreaming Video - 2013
In this two-section program-updated and a full hour long!-licensed massage therapist Richard Sager presents a step-by-step tutorial on how to give a Swedish massage. Demonstrating on a draped male client, he begins by clearly explaining four styles of strokes: effleurage (sliding), petrissage (kneading), friction (cross fiber), and tapotement (rhythmic tapping). Sager also advises on draping methods, on ways to rest the hands, and on oil and lotion use. In the video's second section, Sager performs a full, uninterrupted Swedish massage. With detailed instruction, tips, and recommendations, this video is perfect for bodywork students or for anyone interested in massage techniques.
