Massage therapy technique videos

I feel unprepared to start massaging clients in my program. We have been spending a lot of time on theory and not much time on technique. I am starting to worry as we have to have 24 outside massages done by the end of December. The teacher seems to think we know what we are supposed to do, but we as a whole, don't. Does anyone know of any videos that show the different strokes in a full body massage? Btw, the majority of the class feel the same way as I do.... any ideas?

Massaging eye muscles???

I recently watched a Youtube video of a massage therapist using a qtip to massage muscles on the superior aspect of the eye (between the orbital fissure and upper eyelid) on a patient. I am a massage therapist in training and was horrified and it was a little uncomfortable to watch. My question is, is that within the scope of practice of a massage therapist? It looked like it hurt.See More
