Terra Rosa e-magazine, No. 8 (July 2011)
Joe Muscolino’s workshops in Australia were organised by Terra Rosa. The neck workshop was held on the 2
 – 3
July 2011 in Sydney and on the 9
July 2011in Hobart. The workshop begins with the body me-chanics; Joe showed us how to work from ‘the core’, sothat we are able to generate strong pressure when de-sired with little effort. Therapists applauded new core body techniques to allow them to work smarter and notharder. As most therapists realize, full-time bodywork often leads to therapist fatigue and eventual injury, which is ironic given that people come to us for help with their own improper body mechanics.Joe then explained techniques for palpating and work-ing on the muscles of the anterior neck, specifically thescalenes and the longus muscles. He then moved intostretching: after covering the basic concepts of stretch-ing, Joe demonstrated stretching across multipleplanes so we can focus a stretch specifically to individ-ual muscle (e.g. the upper trapezius vs. the spleniuscapitis, or the levator scapulae vs. the splenius capitis).The second day introduced advanced stretching tech-niques, specifically CR (Contract Relax) stretching, AC(Agonist Contract) stretching (AC is the basis for ActiveIsolated Stretching, if you are familiar with that tech-nique), and then CRAC (Contract Relax Agonist Con-tract) stretching. The workshop finished with neck trac-tion, and joint mobilisation on the neck. The joint mo- bilisation is enlightening and very few therapists are well-trained in this field. The workshop runs from 9 amto 6 pm every day, with 80-90% hands on.The Techniques for the Low Back & Pelvis continued inSydney on 4t
July 2011. It covered body mechanicsfor deep tissue work and stretching for the lower back & pelvis. The workshop continued on advanced stretch-ing, and how to safely perform joint mobilization onthe lower back and pelvis. During the stretching and joint mobilisation parts of the workshop, we are con-stantly reinforced to work from the core body mechan-ics.Joseph Muscolino has over 25 years of professional andpractical experience. He has authored eight books fortherapists that make learning bodywork enjoyable andeasy. He is a chiropractor and orthopedic massagepractitioner and educator residing in Connecticut. Joehas a great sense of humour that makes all feel com-fortable in his presence. Everyone is also impressed with Joe’s teaching and enthusiasm; he is able to de-liver all advanced materials in absolute clarity. Joe went from table to table giving personal attention andalso adding in information. His energy, dynamics, andquality are unsurpassed. Comments include:
