Joe Muscolino

Learn how massage palpation can be taught simply and effectively by presenting students with commonsense guidelines instead of having them memorize palpation protocols. Using these guidelines in the classroom teaches critical thinking, making palpation easier for the students and facilitating their path to a more successful clinical/orthopedic practice.
