Magazine Authors

Massage & Bodywork magazine promotes professionalism among practitioners and stimulates healthy dialogue about the field, while remaining mindful of the breadth of bodywork backgrounds, beliefs, and modalities. In this issue, we explore how to use aromatherapy synergies for the muscular system, the value of participating in dolphin-assisted craniosacral classes, and why practitioners should spend focused, intentional time on their client’s facial muscles. Also in this issue is a detailed look at clients with osteoporosis, using graded exposure stretching in your sessions, working with retinacula, communicating with other health-care providers regarding clients, using pain to self-assess your body mechanics, understanding Standard Precautions, a deep dive into scapular dyskinesis, and a conversation with trauma expert Dr. Peter Levine.
