Very good book to learn your muscles: origin, insertion, action and palpation. Pictures are awesome as they show one muscle at a time. The DVD that comes with the book is very helpful as well. Not a great resource for stretching or strengthening exercises though. Nor perfect for bony palpation - use Hoppenfeld for that - much more detailed. I like this book better than the Trail Guide, which is unfortunately more commonly recognized.Have fun fellow manual therapy students!

a superior text... mult-purposeful... accurate... beautiful Dec 26 2008
By J. Sims - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
OM massage/bodywork students, professionals and teachers

having used the old standard (TGB) to teach kinesiology, anatomy, pathology, deep tissue massage and neuromuscular therapy for years at multiple massage schools, i have been impatiently waiting for an affordable alternative. while this book lacks kinesiology fundamentals (planes, movements, etc.), it is vastly superior for learning muscles and how to specifically palapate muscles and bony landmarks. moreover, it includes theory (based on current research) on trigger points, trigger point locations, the pain referral patterns, initiating and perpetuating factors and a variety of other insightful comments on specific muscle trigger points.

this book does not replace Travell's advanced volumes, but it is much more approachable.

for the study of muscles and movement, it's incomplete, but if you can get by without the kinesiology fundamentals (as mentioned above), it does replace the old standard text (TGB) as it includes thousands of full color (not dull monochromatic) enhanced photographs and drawings, it is thoughtfully organized (not wandering hither thither and patched with blurbs here and there), includes appropriate (not misleading) palpation technique and includes accurate, current references (not using old, arcane, misleading or inaccurate terms). addtionally, muscolino includes stretches for each specific muscle, information on body mechanics, draping, and massage techniques. the Elsevier website provides further highly valuable resources for both students and teachers. finally, there are two DVDs with four hours of demonstrations.

the book can be bundled with flashcards The Muscle and Bone Palpation Manual with Trigger Points, Referral Patterns and Stretching - Text and Flashcards Package. muscolino also has a muscle and bone coloring book Musculoskeletal Anatomy Coloring Book.

the only improvement (other than providing a chapter on kinesology fundamentals) might be a spiral binding as the student/licensed practitioner will constantly be referring to it and wanting to keep it open while practicing.

thank you Dr. Muscolino (and the star-studded lineup on contributors)!

OM tat sat.

All you need to know about palpation Aug. 17 2009
By Keith Short - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book combines All you need to know about: Muscle & Bone Palpation, Locating Trigger Points, and Stretching.
It shows assesment and treatment techniques, including stretching. Palpation of the bones, joints, ligaments and muscles. The muscle illustrations are great incorporating trigger points and referral points as well!

The book also contains 2 DVDs. The first DVD shows palpation on various muscles by Joe Muscolino.

Now, the second DVD is a special one, it contains presentations by some of the top names in massage therapy education, including Tom Myers, Leon Chaitow, Whitney Lowe, Ruth Werner, Benny Vaughn, Bob King, Gil Hedley, Sandy Fritz, Sandra Anderson, Judith Delany, George Kousaleos, Diana Thompson, and many more.
Each of them has a take on a muscle, how they approach it and showing their favourite techniques. This is the most unique DVD presentation on massage I have ever seen. It must take lots of effort and time to gather the top educators in this project.
The author Joe Muscolino is to be thanked and congratulated for putting this wonderful book & DVD.

Excellent anatomy book May 16 2011
By L. Harrison - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I've been a massage therapist for 10 years, and I've taken anatomy 3 times, but I still forget the names of the muscles. I love this book because I can reference by what I'm feeling, and because it doesn't leave out the small "unimportant" muscles like a lot of other texts. The illustrations are very well done and helpful. It also has online study review materials available, which is a wonderful additional benefit.

review of a massage therapist Dec 17 2009
By Elisabeta V. Asadurian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have always believed that a massage therapist who does not know anatomy is not a good massage therapist. This book, and I should say all the books written by Dr. Joseph Muscolino are excellent. Without reading or better studying Dr. Muscolino's books I would not have the skills that I have today.

I sincerely encourage all massage therapists to buy any book written by Joseph Muscolino. They are excellent.
