Massage Technique Library
Great Techniques at your Fingertips
Sign up today and you will lock in the low price of $5 per month! Get instant access to over 500 great techniques!
My vision for the Massage Technique Library is to have an ever-expanding variety of massage techniques organized and linked with relevant anatomy and physiology. I want it to be a place where therapists learn valuable techniques, comment about techniques, and benefit from the comments of others.
Why sign up for the library instead of buying the DVDs?
Sign up now for a monthly membership! We will bill your credit card $5 for the membership and you will have instant access to all the videos in the library. Your credit card will be charged $5 every month, on the same day of each month. If you sign up on January 3rd, your credit card would be charged on February 3, March 3, etc. If you then cancelled your membership on January 5th, you would still have access to the library through February 3 with no further charges to your credit card.
No long term commitment is required. Once you see the content of the library it is likely that you will want to stay. If at any time you find the library doesn't meet your needs you are free to cancel your subscription at any time.
In this library you will have access to videos demonstrating many massage techniques, including all of the information from my three DVDs (Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, and Sports Massage), techniques from Deane Juhan (the author of Job's Body), and techniques from Aaron Mattes' DVDs Active Isolated Stretching - Active Stretching and Active Isolated Stretching - Assisted Stretching. The library also has many exclusive techniques not on any DVD. You will gain instant access to new techniques as well as new information that will be added in response to requests from users like you. The techniques are organized in different ways, making it easy to find specific techniques, and to find techniques for specific muscles or areas. Techniques are also linked to related techniques.
When you "check out" techniques from the library you will have the opportunity to comment on them, and to read the comments of others who have used the techniques. We also have a feature that allows you to upload video footage of techniques that you find useful.

Massage Library Features
Why is the library so inexpensive?
The business model for the library is to have many subscribers paying small amounts monthly. There are many expenses for building, maintaining, promoting, and hosting this library. The only way it can work is to have many subscribers. Your subscription will not only benefit you, but will help support the library and benefit the entire library community as well. You can help to keep the library open and available to everyone by joining the library today.
Are you new to massage?
Start with the Swedish Massage Pages. I would not recommend the Deep Tissue or Sports Massage Techniques unless you have a background in massage.
Are you a massage therapist?
Start with the Deep Tissue or Sports Massage techniques. If you are familiar with these from my DVDs you may wish to check out the new techniques section.
The library has preview pages and technique pages. The preview pages have flash video clips of the techniques. If a technique looks interesting you can click on it and go to a page where you will see full video of the technique, my comments and members comments and ratings of the technique. As a member you can submit your own comments and ratings of the techniques as well. You can also comment on the entire library by using the form at the bottom of this page.
I have more content to add to the library and plan on continually refining it. If you have ideas for me please use the comment form.
If you have techniques you would like to share, please submit a video using our video submission page. It does not have to be high quality, even a cell phone video can work. If it is something that can be used in the library I will re-shoot it and post it. I will give you credit if I use it, and also a few months free use of the library.
It has been said that “tools do not a master make.” This library is a collection of tools. How you use the tools depends upon your approach.
There is a tendency among therapists to work on the painful areas first. It doesn’t help that clients often expect you to focus on the painful areas. Experienced therapists find that the area that is the cause of the pain is often not painful. Clients may wonder why you work on their pectoralis minor when it is their rhomboids that hurt, but they will be happy when their chronic pain is relieved.
There is another saying, “If your only tool is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.” I hope that with the tools you get from this library you will be able to help more people to live pain free. Please let me know how you use these tools, and give feedback so other therapists can benefit from your experience.
