The original, by Dietrich Miesler. In Part 1 - Techniques, Dietrich shows all the techniques he utilized for his work with well and ill elderly. In revealing close-up shots, the video covers details of his techniques from the pump handle to fluffing. He explains when they should be used and why they work. The video is subdivided into many sections, which makes it easier to locate specific phases. In Part 2 - Applictions, which was taped in Seattle, Washington at Mount Saint Vincent Long Term Care Facility, Dietrich shows the applications of the techniques from Part 1 on a number of actual patients who are suffering from Parkinson's Disease, Stroke (CVA), Poor Blood Circulation (PVD), and Osteoarthritis. The video also shows the improvised use of an over-the-bed table for a seated massage for a patient who has positioning problems.
