Massage Magazine (Oct 2004) Review:
Sherry Galloway?s video, Head, Neck & Shoulder Massage, offers massage therapists a straightforward, solid routine for addressing the upper body. Galloway?s sequence combines Swedish strokes, simple trigger-point work and fundamental stretches to relax the upper quadrant and work contracted tissues. Her directions are clear and the filming is well done. This video is a good review for students in massage school and recent graduates who may need a refresher on how to pull together multiple techniques into a simple routine. For new massage therapists whose schooling concentrated on relaxation massage, Galloway?s video offers instruction on how to add deeper, more specific techniques to one?s bag of tools.
This video is divided into 5 sections:
Back of Shoulder: trapezius, supraspinatus, infraspinatus, teres, subscapularis, levator scapula, rhomboids
Massage with Shoulder Joint Movement
Side Lying: rotator cuffs, latisimus dorsi
Front of Shoulder, pectoralis, serratus anterior
Neck, scalenes, SCM & Head, occipital
Sherry teaches you both basic and advanced techniques including how to:
fully approach the anterior and posterior aspects of the shoulder
assess and maintain shoulder function
increase neck motility and flexibility
use long, Swedish strokes combined with therapeutic detail work to keep the body injury-free
identify and get rid of trigger points in the muscles to alleviate headaches
use your body weight to enhance thumb work

gently integrate rocking and stretching into the massage
A rich assortment of layered instrumentation, including flutes, guitar, harps, percussion and piano, adds a touch of complexity and variety that holds the listener?s attention without seeming intrusive or sleep-inducing.
