Extended volume video sets of massage can also provide clear demonstrations of virtually any tissue technique the massage therapist will practice. Live demonstrations on video also enhance learning capabilities beyond what is possible to demonstrate and describe in books alone. Videos can explore general demonstrations of specific massage techniques as well as go into further detail to describe subtleties of working with tissue.
Individualized videos as well as sets designed to serve as full supplemental study courses for massage therapy students are available for those wishing to expand their skills. Several massage video resources exist, including general video outlets, computer and electronic stores; massage magazines, and online sources such as Amazon.com.
Reflexology videos incorporate foot and hand massage into practice. Cranial-Sacral therapy massage videos instruct on how to balance each of the cranial bones and sacrum using various massage techniques.
Therapeutic massage videos specializing in compression routines are also available. These various types of general overview massage videos as well as specialization massage videos can be especially effective in not only supplementing massage therapy instruction but also deepening knowledge of what is learned in the classroom and clinic.
