Fibularis Longus

Christy Cael’s article from last (just got new one, so I’ve started reading it!) edition of ABMP’s Massage & Bodywork was short but very enlightening! I say enlightening because she reminded us therapists that it is easy to forget about this muscle and that it is actually part of a 2-muscle group and also because it helps with stability/balance! Thank you for reading my first post of 2023, and Happy New Year!

Get to the Point: Understanding Muscle Motor Points and Their Relationship to Tonic Acupressure Points

This article, by Mary Kathleen Rose and in this edition of ABMP’s Massage & Bodywork, was completely new and exciting! In my practice, I will take away the reminder that we therapists should always address all points of the muscle (and the author, naturally, says the Motor Point specifically to address more neurologic needs). Additionally, I have been attempting to incorporate more energy work, so, of course, all of the author’s knowledge about Asian bodywork and tonic acupressure points will help me and my patients as well!

Put ART to Work in Your Practice

Erik Dalton, PhD’s article in ABMP’s latest Massage & Bodywork edition is sooo good and timely! He emphasizes that ART is a tool to help us therapists start screening our patients when we very first set eyes on them! The A in ART stands for Asymmetry, the R stands for Restriction of Motion, and the T stands for Tissue Texture Abnormalities. Mr. Dalton finishes his article by stating that the human body, mostly, IS asymmetrical, and that he and all bodyworkers can provide relief by working in that almost-fact about the fascinating wonder that is the human body! Thank you, as always, for reading!

An Unexpected Perspective of the Serratus Anterior

By Allison Denney, in ABMP’S latest edition of Massage & Bodywork, this article was funny, thorough, and, it feels, timely! Ms. Denney also reminds us therapists of hope in her article, which IS timely. Lastly, I can’t help but feel that she left us with a message of, ” even if the issue turns out NOT to be the patient’s serratus anterior, work on it will NEVER be a bad thing!

Infraspinatus

Still saying current (I am so very excited about this!), Christy Cael’s article from ABMP’s Massage & Bodywork was very informative. Ms. Cael reminded us therapists thoroughly of this muscle’s prominence; I plan on using her reminders on patients and myself!
