ABMP Instructors on the Front Lines


At Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals (ABMP), we count it as a privilege to have worked with more than 3,000 massage instructors across the country at our Instructors on the Front Lines workshops (IFL) from 2009–2014. Instructors continue to share the topics they want ABMP to address at upcoming events, and we are listening. Our current topic focuses on the instructors’ request of: building communication skills in massage students!
