Check out this new video, "Full Body Integrated Deep Tissue Massage" by Art Riggs, Certified Advanced Rolfer and Massage Therapy Instructor:

I am grateful to Art Riggs for creating this excellent video series. It is filled with clear, concise instructions. It is obvious that the information is based on many years of professional practice as well as decades of teaching experience. I appreciate Art’s profound knowledge of musculature and fascia. It is impressive that he teaches good use of body weight and the use of the forearm for lengthening the muscles. Purchasing this video series (and the series that preceded it) is the perfect way to gain new knowledge, increase technical skills, help clients achieve their goals, and increase your income.

This is a clip from Art Riggs new DVD set titled "Full Body Integrated Deep Tissue Massage". This upcoming series will give you a clear and extensive understanding on how to combine the numerous specifics of the first series, "Deep Tissue Massage and Myofascial Release" into a fluid bodywork session that your clients will love.

Spontaneous Muscle Release Technique allows us to quickly and painlessly open each layer of tissue without overworking our own bodies!  SMRT allows you to release the ligaments, allow natural realignment of the joints, unlock the connective tissue, stimulate the lymph system, and rebalance muscle tissue.  Check out this article originally published in Massage Magazine in June, 2012 -

Your new John F. Barnes Myofascial Release brochure for seminars in 2011 should have just arrived or if you would like to look at all the seminars that are available to you in 2011, click on this link



We also wanted to make you aware of a mistake in the brochure. We were just informed by the Sheraton Kauai that they would not be able to accommodate our seminars since their renovations would not be finished by the expected completion date.


The venue for the upcoming Hawaii Series, March 31-April 10, 2011, will not be offered on the Island of Kauai, HI, but now on one of the other Hawaiian Islands, Maui.

Luckily, we found a spectacular resort on the beautiful island of Maui at the fabulous Marriott Wailea Resort! J

The lush island of Maui is one of the most beautiful volcanoes in the world! Enjoy the swaying palm trees, beautiful beaches, wind surfing, fishing, golfing, drives (bicycle and car) to the top of the volcano, whale watching, and romantic sunset cruises. Awesome food and tremendous amenities can be found in the small towns and airy resorts spread throughout the island of Maui.


Join us! Renew and refresh yourself under the warmth of the beautiful Hawaiian sun.
