Muscle Energy Technique is one of the most effective and gentle manual techniques for the correction of somatic dysfunction. MET uses accurate assessment techniques

to discover if a joint is stuck out of alignment. Then the practitioner positions the patient and asks for gentle resistance in such a way that the joint is brought back into alignment, and the tight muscle relaxed.

This technique can be incorporated easily into any treatment protocol, and is an excellent addition to any practice.

This beautifully produced DVD covers the pelvis, sacrum and lumbar spine. Specifically, this dvd includes corrections for a pelvis upslip, downslip, rotations, inflair and outflair and pubic bone dysfunctions. It also covers Sacral rotations, and unilateral flexion/extension dysfunctions. The lumbar section covers one or multiple vertebrae stuck in flexion or extensions. In addition to all this, there is also a section on using muscle energy to balance and relax all the muscles surrounding the hips.

Swedish Massage Technique: Therapeutic Applications provides a hands-on overview of a style of message that is particularly appropriate for physically active people-both as a method for enhancing physical (athletic) performance and as a way to help treat injuries. Avoiding extensive use of technical terms concerning the technique, the DVD looks at the five basic movements of Swedish massage: effleurage (long, generous circular strokes, as a rule); petrissage (the lifting and kneading of soft tissue); tapotement (any light or heavy percussive actions); friction (small, firm, and deep circular movements), and vibration (the lifting and shaking of individual muscles). The DVD explains and demonstrates the application of each of these movements on the major areas of the body. The DVD also includes cautionary remarks, as appropriate, concerning the various applications of the technique.

Among the topics covered:

  • Initial face-to-face encounter
  • Massaging the legs
  • Massaging the abdomen
  • Massaging the chest
  • Massaging the neck and shoulders
  • Massaging the arms
  • Massaging the back
  • Massaging problem or trouble spots
  • Cupping and chopping movements
  • Massaging the gluteals
  • Massaging the back of the legs

    With Judith Aron Rubin, PhD

    This program provides an introductory glimpse into the exciting and dynamic world of art therapy. With footage from art therapy sessions conducted all over the world and spanning several decades, you'll see the diversity of the field and the many benefits to incorporating an art therapy approach into your practice.

    Art for healing is as ancient as the drawings on the walls of caves. Famous artists like Vincent Van Gogh, Jackson Pollock and Frida Kahlo used art to cope with their anguish. Now the practice of art as healing is a growing discipline that has been effective in helping those suffering schizophrenia, cancer, depression, trauma, grief, autism, physical or mental disability, AIDS and neurological disorders, among others. Further, art therapy can be used with children, families, the elderly, couples and groups.

    In this program, you will be introduced to two major branches of art therapy: the use of art as a healing method unto itself, and the use of art as a tool in the psychotherapy process. In either approach, art therapy provides a way for clients to tell without talking, and a new way for therapists to listen.

    From watching this program, you will:
  • Understand the many benefits of using an art therapy approach in your practice.
  • Learn how Art Therapy developed into a field, and who were its founders.
  • Be inspired to pursue further education and practice in art therapy.
