Testimonial: "I truly love the massage videos--they've truly boosted my knowledge and have increased productivity in my practice!" — John B, Arizona

"I enjoyed your skillful videos." Yun Lumbard, NH, USA

"I am a medical esthetician and these are the best educational DVDs I have ever found. I will definitely purchase more videos from you in the future. Thank you for your quality videos." Donna Kashian, Woburn, MA.

"Wow, This video is absolutely great! Many of these instructional videos are down right boring. They usually have some mono-tone instructor in a room showing the techniques. This video is different. The instructor is excited about what he's doing and you can tell from watching the video. Also, a lot of it is filmed outside so it captures the tranquility of what the massage is all about. I would have to say that it's one of the most unique instructional videos I have ever seen and I have seen a lot of them! All in all, a great video and a great price and would recommend it to anyone, advanced or beginner, who wants to learn more about Swedish massage!" Kaylee Barnes, NY, USA

"Excellent video, I was very pleased with this DVD. Meade Steadman demonstrates numerous techniques using male and female models. He covers the entire body thoroughly and offers practical advice throughout the video. Unlike other videos, Steadman both performs the massage and explains the techniques at the same time. Other videos use voice-over narration to explain what you're seeing, which is not nearly as enjoyable or as effective." Lorne L Carignan, MI, USA

"Very good tape, I learned more from this tape than any other tapes, books, and school combined." S. Kim, NY, USA

"Students and Instructors Love this!, I have viewed this video many times with my massage therapy students and I learn something new each and every time. I'm happy that quality videos are being put out for all of us to learn from!" Elizabeth M Bryan, USA

"Great massage technique video, This video gives many techniques for massage. If you're looking for additional massage techniques for forearms, knuckles & elbows this is great!" Kara A Dorman, USA

"Excellent instructional DVD!!, I have viewed this dvd several times, each time I seem to notice something new previously missed. Mead Steadman is very professional showing step by step techniques in a well known modality. I learned the basics of this in school but he seems to shed a new light on this age old modality making it more interesting than it was when taught in school. I have also bought his chair massage video and love it too. This is the video to buy if you want the best Swedish massage instructions on video." Stevie Nash, USA

"Excellent, This is a wonderful dvd for both the beginner and seasoned massage therapist. Great for beginners to see techniques they learned in class and to learn new ones. Equally great for seasoned massage therapists who want to review techniques.....there are so many wonderful and relaxing massage techniques to use/remember during a session! Meade is a fantastic instructor." Lori S, USA

"Excellent massage video, I bought this video to help review massage techniques that I may not have completely caught in massage school. Although I didn’t get the specific technique I had interest in, I think this video does an excellent job showing massage techniques and giving information about giving massage. It even covered grounding and massage room set up." William Jacobs, USA

"Excellent overview of Swedish massage!, Incredibly thorough introduction to, and instruction of, Swedish massage. Well thought-out and informative, a "must" for anyone interested in the most popular form of body work there is. Well worth the money." R Kim, CA, USA

“If you are searching for a good Massage video, then this Essentials of Swedish Massage video is certainly the right one. Great techniques, and more importantly great instructor. You can learn a lot in a fun way! I have learned a lot of unique things and techniques here. I would warmly recommend this DVD to anyone.” Bo Savich, USA

“Its been a few years since I completed my training to become a massage therapist, and I began to get the sense that there was more out there than what I had been exposed to. I decided that I wanted to learn more to help me become the most skilled massage therapist possible, and I had no idea that I would learn such an incredible amount from this video; I thought that it might just be a refresher for me, but this has completely changed how I do Swedish Massage, and my clients have taken notice. The instruction in this video is clear, professional, and enjoyable to watch. The filming was done well so that you can see exactly what the instructor is describing, which helps me a lot as a visual leaner (as I know many people in this field are!) The instructor is really great to watch; very engaging, very easy to watch. The thing I like most about this training video is how authentic the information presented is. I feel as though I was missing many of the fundamentals of Swedish Massage before, and I feel like now I can do this massage art form justice with my new found knowledge.” Laura Sophia Bennett, USA

“My husband gave me this DVD after I completed massage school. He knows that it is extremely important to me to continue improving and learning, and this DVD did a great deal to hep with my overall technique with Swedish massage. This video is incredibly informative and detailed with massage techniques. I really feel that this is an excellent way to supplement your knowledge of Swedish massage as well as other therapeutic massage, but it also provided enough to be great for beginners too. Anyone who wants to further their massage training could benefit. I am astounded with the level of detail with the underlying concepts included. I feel as though the makers of this DVD would have been far better instructors than my own. I hope that my future clients will benefit from the expanse of knowledge that I've received from this DVD. If you want to further your massage therapy education, this is a great starting point.” Fired up Beauty, USA
