58 m a s s a g e & b o d y wo r k s e p te m b e r/o c to b e r 2 0 2 3 My Favorite Techniques in Manual Therapy . . . and a Few Pet Peeves By Dr. Joe Muscolino When I teach continuing education workshops for manual therapy, I avoid teaching proprietary techniques and focus instead on the fundamental skill sets that underlie them. My thought is to emphasize fundamentals, with the intention of promoting critical reasoning so the therapist can figure out how to creatively employ their hands-on assessment and treatment techniques, instead of memorizing specific techniques. Having said that, there are certain technique protocols that rank among my favorites, and I would like to demonstrate a few of them here. We might describe these as my faves. Also included are a few of my pet peeves.
