Boris Prilutsky has a degree in physical education, a major in chiropractic medicine, and has been practicing Russian medical massage for over 30 years. He is the founding director and senior instructor at theInstitute of Professional Practical Therapy in Los Angeles, Calif. This background lends itself to the great DVDs that he has produced.
In these DVDs, Boris takes us through a learning experience that will help viewers work on a variety of client problems. Each DVD is easy to use and includes detailed instructions. The section on "Massage Techniques" covers all of the proper strokes, while the "Bonus Material" covers biographical and educational information on Boris, his school, and the making of the DVDs.
The camera work is excellent at capturing the techniques, making the program simple to follow and easy to understand. Messages scroll across the bottom of the screen from time to time to emphasize certain important points. In addition, Boris emphasizes points he feels are important, including clear explanations and descriptions, warnings of what not to do, and directions regarding proper exercise form.

These DVDs are excellent for reviewing massage work on many different problems. I recommend purchasing the entire set to gather the full scope of these techniques. In fact, viewing all five DVDs may spark a special interest in the viewer to pursue further study.
