Dear Friends and Colleagues,   

          Welcome to the third JMS Issue of 2020. We appreciate the support of our readers from all around the world. Please see some of our current issue’s highlights listed below. We hope that you enjoy the read!

          In the We Need Your Help section, we ask our readers to choose the Winner of the International Case of the Month Competition for 2020. Our contestants are Brenda Howell, LMBT, MS from North Carolina; Gerry Ivanov, LMT from Switzerland; and Carolyn Anderson, CMMP, LMT from Virginia. Please cast your vote by the January 31st, 2021 deadline!

          In the Science of Medical Massage section we published Part II of   Dr. Turchaninov’s article, Science of Medical Massage Therapy. Part II: Reflex Zones in Somatic Disorders. In this article we continue a critically important conversation on the mechanisms of reflex zone formation in soft tissues as a result of chronic somatic disorders. This professionally vital topic is completely missed by all publications working to cover the clinical aspects of massage therapy. We are going to fill this information gap.

            In JMS’s Marketing Section we published Part III of the article, Master the Massage Business Mindset. This piece was submitted to our journal by our former student Cory Fairchild, CMMP, LMT, whose expertise also lies in health business marketing

            In our Case of the Month section, Carolyn Anderson, CMMP, LMT shares with our readers her clinical expertise in her article Medical Massage Vs Multilayered Lower Back Tension.

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

Dr. Ross Turchaninov, Editor in Chief
