Dear Friends and Colleagues,   

            Welcome to JMS Issue #3 of 2019. We appreciate the support of our readers from all around the world. Here is the content of the current issue we hope you will enjoy.   

Our Person of the Month is David Lesondak, BCSI, ATSI, FST, FFT. David is an exceptional therapist, educator and author. He specializes in studying and working with fascia. His interview gives insight into this part of somatic medicine which has recently developed a lot of exiting breakthroughs.  

Our new section ‘Boris Prilutsky’s Blog’ was accepted with enthusiasm by our readers. We continue to publish Boris’ Blog with a piece titled: “Increasing Unwillingness To Bear Even the Slightest Discomfort.” It is always refreshing to see the same topic from someone else’s perspective.

In the Science of Medical Massage section, we published an incredibly important article “Biotensegrity – Anatomy For The 21st Century. Thoughts On Fluid Dynamics And Biotensegrity” by Dr. J. Sharkey, an anatomist from Ireland. Our Editorial Board felt privileged to publish his articles before and we consider this piece a real eye-opener. Please don’t miss it!

            Our second article in this section is Part II of the article “S-spine Vs J-spine – Is There Any Merit in This Discussion?” written by Dr. Ross Turchaninov. We continue our discussion about ideal spine arrangement using scientific data.

In our Case of the Month section, Steve Smith, LMT, CMMP, who recently graduated from our Medical Massage Certification Program shares with readers his first successfully treated case of Parkinson’s Disease: ‘Medical Massage vs Parkinson’s Disease.’ Of course, Medical Massage is not the full solution for such a debilitating disease, but it helps to slow down its progression. Steve’s case is a great illustration of that.

Finally, as usual, you will find a lot of helpful information in our Good Apples/Bad Apples section.    

Dr. Ross Turchaninov, Editor in Chief
