medical message techniques for back therapy

For more than 30 years I have practiced medical massage therapy. I passionately love this occupation because of its simplicity and its extreme therapeutic power. On my DVD series, I keep it very simple while I explain and demonstrate the step by step protocols for different disorders. I hope that you will like my DVD series, and most importantly will learn and understand new techniques and approaches for different disorders. Thank you for your interest.

P.S. - The 12 volumes of my DVD series is a collection and not a sequential set. Also, on each volume I cover several different topics that are not always related to the others on the same disc and are not always related to topics on any other disc. I just passionately packed each volume with material with hope that you will appreciate this. Therefore, please feel free to check the topics of your interest.

Below you will find detailed information about each volume created in the DVD series.

Thank you for your interest.

Volume #1 (80 Minutes): Lower Back Disorders; Disc Herniation, Lumbalgia, Sciatic Nerve Neuralgia, Post-Isometric Relaxation & Back Rehabilitative Exercises

This DVD is packed with information that can directly improve your abilities to help clients in pain. According to recent statistics, 30% of the U.S. adult population suffers from lower back problems. Generally lower back disorders are classified as lumbalgia, lumbago, radiculopathy (radiating pain to the lower extremities). On DVD#1, Boris explains in detail the causes that lead to lumbalgia, disc herniation, as well as sciatica neuralgia. For example, in most cases of lumbalgia, the origin of the pain is so-called mechanical pain, or myofascial pain which in time can become the main factor for development of intervertebral disc herniation, etc. It is a known fact that the above mentioned pathologies are very difficult to treat by any means other than massage therapy. Therefore, Boris teaches not only how to eliminate myofascial pain but also how to prevent intervertebral disc herniation.

Nowadays it is commonplace for people with cases of sciatica neuralgia to be referred for spinal surgery when really the main cause of the sciatica neuralgia is over-tensed piriformis muscles (piriformis muscle syndrome). On DVD #1 Boris explains in detail and demonstrates step by step the protocol for various lower back disorders including sciatica. This protocol was developed by Vladimir Cherneh MD, PhD, in 1976 and since then, has proven to be the most safe and effective.

Also on this DVD, Boris demonstrates various massage therapy techniques, including superficial fascia release, deep fascia release techniques, trigger point therapy, and skin mobilization, Boris thoroughly explains and demonstrates post-isometric relaxation techniques, which he believes plays a crucial role in treating lower back disorders. Exercise program is a very important rehabilitative effort to propose to one’s clients. With the help of a model, Boris presents a safe, gentle and effective exercise program for rehabilitation of lower back disorders.

---- "Only a real master of the art of massage can stay in front of the camera for approx.20 hours, and without a script, talk about and demonstrate the protocols of massage therapy on more than 50 topics. I possess all 11 volumes of Boris Prilutsky’s DVDs, and have carefully viewed each. In my opinion, never before has such an excellent collection of educational massage DVDs been produced. I have been practicing and incorporating massage therapy for more than 30 years, and in my opinion, this is a great and unique collection. I would recommend to anyone who wants to improve their massage skills to obtain these DVDs." Gregory Feldt, D.C., PhD

On DVD #3 Boris explains in detail the developmental process of fibromyalgia and demonstrates the hands-on protocol initially proposed in the 1970s by a group of scientists from the 2nd Moscow Medical School under the leadership of Professor Anachkin, MD, PhD.

There is no doubt that by managing the levels of workplace stress in employees helps the employer companies to save huge amounts of money.

After this Boris demonstrates how to perform chair massage techniques with no massage chair. We don’t always have a massage chair, therefore, Boris presents alternative/modified techniques that allow us to provide effective treatment even without a professional massage chair. But only upper back and neck massage is not enough. For effective stress management it is very important to perform lower extremities mobilization. Boris in details clearly demonstrates how to perform massage for the upper and lower extremities with the client in a seated position. Also on DVD #6 is demonstration and instructions on how to perform Manchurian acupressure for tension headaches. This set of acupressure points is usually capable of rapidly relieving even intense headaches. But this short acupressure set isn’t just for the headache sufferer. Those who receive this treatment without having a headache will experience a boost of energy and more mental clarity. As we said, every DVD packed with material. In the end, Boris demonstrates full body techniques on posterior part on silk. Performing massage on silk is convenient not only because person doesn’t have to disrobe and no need for lubrication, but also allows us to mobilize much deeper tissue.

training/workout routines.

Volume #8 (98 minutes):Massage therapy for cellulite reduction, Chinese cupping techniques, Medical massage in cases of Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders

As you know, nowadays the plastic surgery industry is booming. One of the popular plastic surgeries is cellulite reduction. On DVD #8, Boris explains and demonstrates step by step massage techniques for cellulite reduction. Additional to hands-on protocol for cellulite reduction, Boris offers demonstration and explanation on utilization of Chinese cupping techniques.

Nowadays, the Maxillofacial Pain Academy declared that at least 25 million Americans suffer from one or more symptoms of TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders, such as headaches, neck pain, buzzing in the ear, etc. Also they stated in their declaration that in most cases, the symptoms are often misdiagnosed. On DVD #8, Boris explains and demonstrates in detail how to perform the treatment for cases of TMJ dysfunction. The explanation and demonstration includes the massage therapy techniques, trigger point therapy, and post-isometric relaxation. Nowadays, dentists are offering 30 minutes of electrical stimulation to reduce the tonus of the masticatory muscles in order to eliminate the painful symptoms of TMJ. We are 100% positive that electrical stimulation for 30 minutes is not the most effective from the perspective of tension reduction in the masticatory muscles, and that it causes side effects such as high blood pressure, trigeminal nerve neuralgia, etc. On the other hand, massage therapy for TMJ disorders is a very safe and effective treatment.

TESTIMONIAL----"Boris Prilutsky's DVD collection has proved tremendously valuable in my massage practice. Several times per week I see patients with Sciatica. Boris's vol. 1 DVD explains the condition and clearly shows the therapy. I have noticed the more knowledge I have, the more referrals my patients give me. His DVDs have paid for themselves many times over. In our stress filled lives, who do we know that does not need a massage? When I was in school training to become a massage therapist, I wished Boris Prilutsky's vol. 3 DVD was available, it would have been an invaluable tool. Now that I have been working professionally I use it to master the techniques and refine my artistry. If there is anything that is as valuable as massage, it is Lymph Drainage. We all know the importance of good nutrition, but how often do we focus on getting rid of toxins in our bodies? Master massage technician, Boris Prilutsky, in his vol. 5 DVD takes you step by step through Lymphatic Drainage. This technique has saved lives, how many lives do you want to save?"
