The Complete Massage Pack: Basic & Professional Massage Therapy version 2.0 – Enhanced Version

Now with enhanced menus and DVD features

This is a combo pack of of two most popular massage instructional videos. This two video set takes the viewer from no knowledge of massage up through and including what professional therapists understand.

The massage therapy instructional DVD is the full-unabridged version of our basic massage video and teaches the techniques used by professional massage therapists in everything from Swedish massage to deep tissue and pressure point therapy.

The video is narrated and demonstrated by a certified massage therapist instructor with years of training and professional experience. The video skillfully covers all the basic introductory massage techniques and shows some advanced maneuvers while providing all the tools necessary to learn the healing art of massage. This video is a great instructional device whether the intent is massaging for fun or pursuing massage therapy as a career.

Professional Massage Therapy has long been a secret to the general public but now the secrets are revealed through this video. In this video class is taught by a massage therapist instructor with over 20 years of teaching who prepares massage students to take state certification tests. While each state has different certification or registration procedures for therapists, the principles and knowledge are the same no matter where you go.

This video shows you what you've always wanted to know. See what up until now could only be seen by enrolling in a professional massage therapy school taking many months and several hundreds of dollars in fees. We bring the hidden techniques of massage therapy to you for use in the comfort of your own home. You can even watch this instructional video over and over again to improve and perfect on your massage therapy technique.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great For Aspiring Massage Therapists June 14, 2003
By Elle
These two dvds really do cover a wide range of massage techniques. The Basic Massage dvd is best to base your routine around. The Professional Massage dvd goes into more technical detail with names of different muscles and tissues. The Professional Massage dvd also goes one step further and gives some tips on setting up your own massage business. The reason why I give this product only 4 stars is the production quality is poor, especially on the Professional Massage dvd. The picture quality is grainy and when the instructer points to notes on a dry erase board, the picture is so over-lighted that you can not read parts of the board. However, this dvd is still worth the cost for all the information that you get. For those people who are interested in massage therapy as a career, I also suggest the book "Massage Therapy Career Guide" by Steve Capellini (ISBN: 1562533827). This book covers all the behind the scenes business to becomming a massage therapist. One of the best parts of the book gives tips on massage tests. I have yet to find anything more nerve racking than giving a test massage to a potential future employer, but this section takes a lot of tension out of the situation. Other great features include liability insurance, taxes, third-party billing, dream and nightmare days in the life a massage therapist and the Resource section is lengthy, concise and filled with addresses, phone numbers and URLs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for massage students June 5, 2004
By A Customer
This is a great learning tool for learning Swedish massage and some trigger points. There is nothing like seeing it done physically as opposed to seeing it in a book. The video is done well and I used it to help me get through massage school. I also found it as a helpful reference when I studied for the National Certification Examination for Massage and Bodywork. I also found the following excellent preparation sources for the national certification exam.
Patrick Leonardi's "The Ultimate Study Guide for the National Certification Examination for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork: Key Review Questions and Answers" Volume 1, Volume 2, and Volume 3. The study guides were so complete for the type of questions encountered on the national exam. This is a must buy for anyone taking the National Certification Exam. These books helped me to pass the first time.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best video I have seen so far... August 17, 2005
I am enrolled in the study of massage therapy in school, and have been looking for a video to help supplement my career field. This is absolutely the best video I have come across so far. It wraps up the basic techniques of massage therapy, and also let me know what to expect as I enter the career field.

So glad I ran across this, I am recommending it to all my classmates and my teacher as well. Thanks again!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for learning some Swedish massage. June 25, 2011
By Corbin
Verified Purchase
I took two little massage courses at a community college and then got this video. It really is pretty good it shows all sorts of different motions you can use while massaging and they explain "how long to" and "positions" etc.. It's nice for helping to learn how to give a nice basic massage.

4.0 out of 5 stars Basic Massage - great video January 10, 2007
This is a very well organized video and explained what I wanted to know about basic massage techniques. It is good to own a video like this, since you will not remember everything you see the first time. I have not had a chance to see the Professional Massage video. This seems to be a lot more detailed with pictures and so on

2.0 out of 5 stars The Complete Massage Pack July 21, 2013
Verified Purchase
This product arrived in great time, but once I received it, I was disappointed. Not because the content of the DVD wasn't good, but because I couldn't get past the quality of the filming. It was horrible. It looked as if the vendor had copied the ORIGINAL DVD over a thousand times. The people were fuzzy and unclear. I won't be ordering from this vendor for a while.

4.0 out of 5 stars Swedish Instruction Only June 11, 2012
Verified Purchase
Complete (as title states) gave me the impression more than technique was taught in this DVD set. Just two different DVDs with two different instructors. The 2nd "Professional Massage Therapy v2.0" is the better DVD. It also goes into a lesson on muscles and Aroma Therapy. 1st one, a bit like watching someone else get a massage and waiting. Anyway, if you have the option, I'd recommend just ordering the 2nd DVD instead of both. I learned more from it.

This DVD was a great buy to me. It secured some skills I already knew and showed me a couple I didnt. The Professional portion got me to thinking about restudying my massage notes.
