"I was so happy to put all my new skills to work. My first client was a old woman that just wanted a light relaxation massage. I did some work on her knees. She enjoyed having them worked on. But the next one was a construction worker who needed his ribs mobilized. He loved it and felt much better. The tips are up. Thanks again Art."
"Your workshop was amazing in a life changing way. I learnt more than I could have hoped for and know that what you gave me, both in terms of massage and in terms of just spending time with you, will last me a lifetime. So, from as deep as I possibly can, I thank you – you are an exceptional person and I feel so blessed to have had the privilege to learn from you."
"I thank you for your inspiring teaching style and positive outlook and I look forward to possibly attending one of your courses in the future. Your work will have a far reaching positive affect for my existing and future clients and in this regard I salute you."
"Thank you for having me and providing the opportunity to study with/learn from you. After your training I was left with some of the greatest gifts I have ever received from someone. Thank you for sharing your wisdom, expertise, kindness and loving light.
"Thanks again for the wonderful workshop. I'm incorporating some of what you showed us into my work, and have noticed that my hands never hurt now from massaging, which they used to. I'm looking forwarding to finding the time to read your book now, and am excited that there's so much to learn. Thank you, Art!"

Workshop & Class Descriptions
Workshops cover much more than just techniques and strategies, and are designed to have massage therapists return home with dramatically different approaches to working with tissue, no matter what kind of work you specialize in. It is important that each student obtains quality hands-on supervision to perfect the subtle aspects of biomechanics and touch. For this reason, class size will be limited to approximately 20 students, with one or two assistants in addition to the instructor.
Workshop Locations and Subject Matter
Most classes are held at the San Francisco School of Massage - 415 474-4600 (www.sfschoolofmassage.com) in two sections:
Other Massage Therapy Classes
Two or three times a year, classes will be held at other locations that will be listed on the website, and are often held in locations that allow students to take vacations while studying. These classes combine aspects of the Fundamentals and the Advanced training, moving at a little faster pace and focusing upon the most important aspects of the longer trainings. If you would like to host a class, please contact Art Riggs at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
