The Earth Massage is a deep, muscular massage designed to help ground your clients into a body that is free from fascial restrictions created from physical and mental tension.

The course integrates Deep Tissue, Neuromuscular Therapy, Myofascial Release and Swedish Massage. Using the side posture primarily, the Earth Massage routine employs deep, compressive techniques that soften adhesions and muscle fibrosis, reducing the activity of myofascial trigger points, increasing the mobility of connective tissue and joints, and improving posture.

Benefits also include muscle lengthening, increased range of motion, and improved posture. Perform this massage on clients with muscle tension, limited range of motion, or on people who can't lie face-down or face-up for long.

The course video also includes a 5-minute Yoga routine for the practitioner.

WOW! This course was A+, gold star. It was crystal clear and easy to follow. The clinical information was professional. The video was a wonderful guide. The test was done in such a manner to help remind technique and intention. I am sure I will be ordering the other courses in the future. I love the hassle-free and affordability of your home study. Thank you. You also included a return envelope! WOW - what a complete course.

M. Baumann, LMT, NCTMB

I am excited to use this massage technique on my clients. I already did once and my client said it felt amazing and she has had back pain for years. She has more range of motion from one session already.

A. Surrena, LMT, NCTMB

Very good, video was very good and supported the text book.

C. Connett, LMT, AMTA

It was all great!

Liv Rodriguez, CMT, NCTMB

The information in the book teaching the muscles and the trigger points was great. I liked linking the pain to which muscles to massage.

Sharon Buchholz, LMT, NCTMB

I always use client volunteers to practice the course techniques and then get feedback in exchange for the work. This practice reinforces the new skills and gives a benefit to some of my regular clients.

James Shattuck, LMT, NCTMB

Reading the booklet. Then performing the moves on clients was interesting to see changes that enhanced mmovement for them. Enjoyed providing this modality. Watching the DVD aided in the flow of massage technique.

Phyllis Magers, LMT, NCTMB

Between the text and DVD this course was wonderful, easy to understand and retain information. Loved it.

Rebecca McQuaig, CMT

I have been using the Earth Massage routine on my clients for 5 months and they all have responded very well. They have all stated they feel better and most have not had recurring problems, and those that have stated their problems are decreasing. They are very pleased with the results they are getting.

Patricia Luckey, LMT

Excellent Course!!! Thank YOU!

Ondria Hooks, LMT

I appreciate the convenience of the home study program. I will look forward to have the materials for future reference.

Jennifer Daigle, LMBT

At first I was not thrilled about taking an online course, as I prefer to work with others and on others. This was a great solo learning experience though. It was easy to understand and I am looking forward to watching the video and practicing the Earth Massage with fellow therapist!

Emily Noel, LMT

This course was the best ever! I have been a massage therapist for 21 years, so this was a refresher course for me. It helped remind me of a few tidbits of forgotten information. And, at the same time it gave me the confidence that I still know my stuff! I'm looking forward to taking more of the Integrative Massage courses.

Angela Hart, LMT

I really liked the pattern of Earth massage and will use it on clients.

Great class format, video, and structure. Clear and concise information and pictures.

Rosanna Cenci, LMT, NCTMB

I first got this in videotape form in 2006 but lost the tape. I have been wanting to have it again ever since and it was fortuitous that now I can earn CEUs for the technique that transformed my practice. Thank you!

Thomas Izaquirre

This was a very easy to follow routine, but very specific in technique. It truly accomplishes a lot for side-long enthusiasts.

George S. Andrews, LMT

I'm very happy to do this course because the material was interesting and easy to understand since English is my second language.

Patricia Yerena, LMT, NCTMB

It was a great course. The information was clear, concise & very informative. Thank you!

Great! Great! I thoroughly enjoyed reading and studying this course.

Carolyn F. Battle, LMT

I was concerned about not being in a class room setting, but this is extremely easy to follow and understand.

Kenneth Sandell, LMT

Excellent massage for thick muscled male clients. I had forgotten about using the forearm and these techniques really save my hands and thumbs, and help to give a deep effective massage without getting warn out.

Sonja Jensen, LMT

This course was a vast improvement over my last internet experience. It was informative. It was well-written. And I learned something. Which was what I wanted. Thanks!

Allison Gundersen, LMT

Very good course and descriptions for new, serious MT’s. Good refresher for long term MT’s.

Eleanor M. O'Steen, LMT

This course is excellent! It has inspired me to bring my sessions into a deeper level, to the satisfaction for both myself and my clients. It has confirmed a direction that I have already had a tendency to take in my professional bodywork. Thank you so much.

Ronald Crooks, LMT

Although I have many years in practice, this course was not only a refresher course but a reinforcement. The text is concise and the video clearly addressed and explained as to why certain hand movements, strokes and techniques are used. Thank you

Barbara Acosta, LMT

I really enjoyed this one! Lots of great ideas and techniques! Very easy to follow and understand.

Rebecca Graba, BCTMB

I could easily follow this massage course and found new insights into applying techniques! Thank you
