Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Welcome to the Issue #1, 2011 issue of JMS. In this issue you will find out who won our Case of the Month contest and which professional massage publication got our Appreciation Award for 2010.

In the Science of Pediatric Massage Section of our Journal you will find Part II article of O. Bouimer, LMT dedicated to the practical aspects of Infant Massage for pre-term infants.

In the Science of Medical Massage Section we offer you follow up article on Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction.

The Case of the Month is the contribution of Stephen Rayson, MMT who again shared his professional expertise with our readers.

As usual, we will try to guide you to the helpful articles in our Good Apples/Bad Apples section of the Journal.

Our Journal is currently involved in several educational projects. One of our most important projects is to help massage schools and colleges inject as much massage science in their curriculum as possible. We consider this matter of the greatest priority. This is a very time consuming process, however, we are dedicated to accomplishing this goal. To do so, we have decided to publish the Journal of Massage Science in 2011 four times per year. This is a temporary measure and we plan to restore the 6 issue model in 2012.
Sincerely, Dr. Ross Turchaninov, MD
