Here is the foreword to the Ariana Institute’s Deep Tissue Massage Therapy Manual by David Lauterstein, Co-Director of The Lauterstein-Conway Massage School, MTI, Cert. ZB, Author of The Deep Massage Book.

Ariana Vincent’s Deep Tissue Massage Manual is an excellent introduction to deep tissue work. She has gathered many gems of technique and philosophy together. These are drawn from her own extensive experience and knowledge of deep tissue from her own practice extending over 30+ years. She has graciously included in this manual useful collaborative insights from other excellent teachers and writers – Art Riggs, Ryan Hoyme, Michael Carpenter and others.  

She does an excellent job detailing the proper body mechanics for performing deep tissue work. So often therapists hurt themselves trying too hard or utilizing less than optimum posture and movements. Her emphasis and information on body mechanics is to be applauded.

Ariana is not only a pioneer in massage and instruction, she has provided a great number of on-line resources and courses through the Ariana Institute. At the same time, she also does the field a service by emphasizing, in addition to her contribution to the growing literature on deep tissue, that it is best if students receive hands-on instruction in deep tissue massage therapy.

Throughout the manual, added to her important verbal explanations of the techniques, she has, for visual learners, included some excellent photos and links to her videos illustrating this work.  

This manual is a superb compendium of deep tissue techniques that can be adapted to serve the many needs of a client during a session. She recognizes that of course pieces of this may be included or edited out depending on the client’s needs, preferences, and the length of the session.

The Ariana Institute’s Deep Tissue Therapy Massage Manual will be helpful to everyone who reads it!
