I am a massage therapist. This is just a terrible attempt at an instructional DVD. I don't even know where to start. It would have been okay that it looks like it was poorly shot and edited with a bad home video camera IF it contained any useful or good content. But, it didn't. The guy looks like a deer in headlights, very nervous and unorganized in his thoughts and actions, and he mumbles a lot. It's like he's just thinking of things one might be able to do with a hot stone and then he repeats it. Like...you can take a hot stone from the ankle up the leg and back and down the arm? Really? Wow! Come on... That is a basic moved that should have been learned in any good massage school. Of course you could put a hot stone in your hand and do the same move... I just can't believe I bought this terrible DVD. If you have any massage education at all, don't waste your money. I know you can deduct it on your taxes but buy something else that has a chance of being useful. If you don't have any massage education, you probably wouldn't be interested in hot stones anyway. Just don't buy it...I'm sure you'll be as disappointed as I am. It was only $25 BUT it had the potential to be good...it just wasn't...that guy should be embarrassed to have put out such a terrible piece of work. Sadly I ordered the stretching dvd too, I'm hoping he redeems himself.

Like human nerds, this DVD is very smart and full of facts, but also like human nerds, it is awkward and disorganized.

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!!!!

Just purchased this DVD and have been enjoying it since it arrived. Lot's of information, I've had to watch the DVD several times and find my head spinning well before it's over. Some of the stretches are common but there were many that I'd never used before.

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.

This by far is THE WORST DVD on the market. I could only sit through 15 minutes before I shut it off. The information is poorly presented, and he rarely even talks about trigger points. My 8 year old could have done better then he did. Don't waste your time on this, it is not worth the money at all!

There's a LONG DVD movie, without posibility of searching the diferent chapters. You need to watch all the movie if you want to look for what you need. The explanations are poor and I am not satisfied with the product, as I expected.

If you can get past the church basement it's filmed in, the single camera angle, the loss of focus, echoing audio and the therapist blocking a few of the stretches this is the DVD for you!

[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.

The studio used to create this video is very basic and the presentation will not win any awards, but it delivers the claim, 100+ massage chair techniques. There are brief explanations of setup, takedown and some business tips. The remainder of the video demonstrates various techniques for chair massage. The individual who demonstrates and narrates the techniques is very informative.

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.
