    Rich Phaigh said it took him only 48 hours to do the video work but 400 hours to do the step by step textbook.

    The NEW step by step pictorial Onsen Therapy™ Room Manual by Onsen International® with ©Rich Priest gives us the option of
    * a workshop with complete accurate notes so you can concentrate to more hands on efforts.
    * of finishing a Treatment of Pain™ Workshop or DVD viewing without unintelligible incomplete scrawled notes of questionable accuracy

    Rich Phaigh, LMT, DMT calls his videos “A Video Clinic: The Treatment of Pain” which he describes as: “Onsen Techniques®: A New Treatment Protocol combining Muscle Energy Technique, Post Isometric Relaxation, and Transverse Friction Massage.”
