Although many of these techniques were familiar from massage school, this video really shows how to put them together and when it is appropriate to use them. She also goes into nice detail about which techniques to use for which issues - the video comes with a summary book that describes the disorders & associated techniques, which is a nice reference tool. I found it to be very helpful, and it gave me more confidence when I did my first event massage.

Note - if you have taken a course in sports massage, then you probably won't learn anything new from this, but if you are new to it, then it is a good introduction.

I'm currently a studying to become a licensed massage therapist and am extremely disappointed that 'sports massage' isn't one of the classes offered in my studies. Trying to gather as much information as possible on my own - I purchased this video at a local massage supply store. The explanation, demonstration, and timing for each massage is useful - but the techniques are extremely basic and most of them are strokes I already knew. This video just reassured I was on the right track. I do like the demonstrations on injury management and different techniques to use for different situations... but overall, I guess I expected or was looking for a little more. My quest for pre/post event massage information continues.
