"Excellent and expert instruction. Beautiful videos. These methods are far superior to what we were taught in aesthetic and spa training classes."

And now here is his 4th massage course in the series-The Award Winning Isla Verde Spa Deep Tissue and Advanced Techniques Massage Course! 

Mark Perren-Jones guides you step by step to show you from the basics to advanced how to give your massage clients an incredible Deep Tissue massage experience. You will learn not only techniques that you can use for your deep tissue massage but also will be able to incorporate these massage techniques into any of your other massages such as your relaxation or hot stones massage sequences.

Mark shows you not only what his 25 years of experience has helped him, but also he shows you the ways to avoid the mistakes that he has made along the way. When it comes to a massage clinic or spa, your best asset is your massage.

Without an incredible massage sequence, it will be very difficult to have a thriving practice. This course will give you the skills set to give your clients an amazing massage experience.

Section 1: The Massage Essentials

Welcome to my new deep tissue and advanced techniques massage course!


As you will see, unless you have a table that has the correct components-you are fighting a losing battle


You need to make some decisions here!


I share with you some of my mistakes that i dont want you to repeat


Its the little things that can make a huge difference


As they say, timing is everything

A contraindication is a situation when massage should not be performed. Continuing with treatment may be more detrimental than beneficial and in some cases may cause serious medical problems. Here is a list of those contraindications.


In my massage there are certain choices i make whether to include them or not


Learn this very quickly!


Getting honest feedback is vital


This could be the most important lecture in the entire course


You now need to groove these things in to make them a habit


And lastly, let's go through a few final points.


It's time to make sure that you know everything up to this point

Section 3: Full Body Deep tissue Massage

The Start of any massage is vitally important-you make your first impressions on your client as soon as you put your hands on them so be conscious from the get-go


The back sequence is perhaps the most important area to do fabulously. We carry our tension in our backs and necks so if you can give a person a great back massage you will definitely have them rebooking!


This is the area i call the 'tipping zone'. I tell my students that if you do the back and neck massage exceptionally well this is where you will get your tips from your clients. Why? because everyone wants a great back and neck massage because this is where we hold the majority of our stress.


A combination of smooth but deep massage techniques as well as some powerful acupressure point massage


Here are some nice stretching techniques that you can incorporate into your massage


For a great massage, you must give a great neck massage. Here we show several techniques that will relieve even the tightest necks


Now that your client is totally relaxed we remove the stress down out of the arms, forearms and out of the palms and fingers-some of these techniques are my favorites in the massage


Now for some nice deeply relaxing massage on the front of the legs


Here are some stretches that you can do to loosen up the hamstrings, hips and lower back
