This is officially the worst, most poorly produced DVD I have ever seen. It consists 100% of a male therapist's disembodied (disenheaded?) hands working on a demo person while methodically listing muscle names, origins, insertions, and actions. Most of the times he will remember to talk about a trigger point for a muscle, but not always! The DVD is practically useless as a reference tool since the two hour DVD is only separated into two chapters: anterior and posterior. What a pain in the neck if you quickly want to look up something for a particular client! The absolute nadir of the DVD occurs approximately 45 minutes into it. The speaker introduces the rectus femoris, but then messes up. Instead of deleting the goof, the DVD simply has a `do-over'. Unbelieveable! Either there was absolutely no editor at all for this DVD, or it was just so incredibly boring that the editor just fast-forwarded and skimmed! What a waste of my time and money!!!!
Criticism would be sometimes the shot goes out of focus, and the client on the table is much more flexible than the average client. I would have like to have the muscles identified with each stretch - sometimes they are mentioned sometimes they are not - but once you have the stretch preformed on you or you perform it than the muscles affected becomes obvious.
I would and have recommended to my massage therapist friends.
[next stretch, next technique, next stretch....I may hear that im my sleep tonight.]
I have to admit I did burst out laughing a few times watching this DVD. I was trying to imagine doing some of the techniques on my clients! For the majority of the stretches, your clients will have to be clothed in some manner. Draping would not be practical. You will also have to treat your clients quite regularly before trying a lot of these stretches. This isn't stuff you try on someone the first time they come to see you.
It would have been more beneficial to have the therapist explain the muscles being stretched and how he was moving the client. For expample: "I'm going to laterally rotate the foot to stretch the tib..." Rather than, "Next stretch, move the foot this way to stretch the leg."
Physical therapists could benefit from the DVD and possibly OT's as well.
Therapists who work in a spa or any facility other than a chiro's office or rehab clinic may not use the majority of these techniques.
I am a massage therapy student who has yet to take the chair classes. I just bought a massage chair; this video offers enough to give me the head start I hoped for. I believe the price to purchase this DVD was very fair.
