Salt Lake City, UT – Many women don’t receive the full body work required for maximum therapeutic results. Specifically, they often don’t receive massage in the upper torso, which ultimately affects posture, alignment, back pain, and general well being. Tackling this delicate subject is Aesthetic VideoSource’s indispensable all-in-one guide, Therapeutic Breast Massage, which walks you through the issues and approaches in providing this service.

In this instructional DVD, expert massage therapist and instructor, Meade Steadman, demonstrates how to provide draped and undraped massage on the upper torso, with detailed discussion of the underlying musculature. His demonstrations are on two models, one with natural breasts and one with augmented breasts. He also discusses client preparation, legal considerations, client comfort, breast physiology, lymphatic drainage, cancer, and other issues to be considered for breast massage.

“This region of the body is not really worked on or approached a lot by massage therapists, and there are a lot of beneficial aspects,” says Steadman, “It is very important to address this area in a muscular aspect of anterior and posterior. You can address structure, posture, musculature, and overall health.”

“This is a video whose time has come,” says Shirley Erickson Gorospe, president of Aesthetic VideoSource. “These important techniques help improve the health and posture of women. You’ll see immediate results in how the shoulders relax back, so your clients stand straight and tall.”

Meade Steadman is a licensed massage therapist and instructor for the Myotherapy College of Utah and the Myotherapy Institute of Massage. The courses he teaches include Swedish Massage, Sports Massage, Reflexology, Hydrotherapy, Spa Specialties, and Tai Chi. Steadman works at a day spa in Salt Lake City, Utah. He is also the featured expert in other instructional videos which have received many awards and accolades.

Aesthetic VideoSource produces and distributes detailed, comprehensive health and spa instructional DVDs, so anyone – with or without prior experience – can properly perform the procedures shown. Aesthetic VideoSource is the forerunner in educational media distribution, with award-winning DVDs and an always-expanding list of offerings to meet the beauty industry’s needs.
