So you love what you do, right?
And as a result, you’re probably pretty good at it, too?
But are you like many of our members who could use some more work?
Well, what are you doing about it?
There are so many things in our lives we know are good, and good for us, but we need to be reminded of them. We invented the chair; it is in our nature to use it. Think about how many messages we encounter that encourage us to get out of our chair and embrace life.
I subscribe to Runner’s World magazine; reading it is built-in inspiration delivered to me monthly. If I’m not on track with my training when it arrives, just reading about others gets me on track immediately.
YOU are your clients’ built-in inspiration. Who are you going to inspire today?
You know who I inspired today? Hopefully YOU. Go get ‘em, tiger.

While this is the time of year that #gratitude starts trending, living a grateful life is not something to wrap up in a day, a week, a month . . . or a hashtag. We need to honor it all from an open heart.
Lymph Talk is a series of conversations ABMP Director of Professional Education Kristin Coverly had with practitioners who specialize in the manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) modality. These talks were recorded in conjunction with the October 25, 2022, free, online ABMP CE Summit on Lymph. Kristin says, “My hope is that these conversations increase the awareness of MLD and demonstrate how effective it can be with different populations so massage therapists and bodyworkers are inspired to learn more about this gentle, yet powerful modality!”
Gain an understanding of manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) movements and the location of important lymphatic structures as you watch Nicola McGill’s dynamic demonstration of three MLD techniques and MLD sequences for the neck and face. Learn about this important modality that, when provided effectively, can support and enhance the movement of lymph fluid through the lymphatic vessels and eventually back to the cardiovascular system.
Manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) is a gentle, rhythmic form of bodywork that enhances and supports the movement of fluid through the lymphatic system to support health and well-being. Developed by Danish therapists Emil and Estrid Vodder in the 1930s, MLD is now practiced extensively by health and wellness practitioners and is used within the medical community to treat lymphedema and post-surgical and post-traumatic edema. Join Nicola McGill in this engaging course to learn the benefits, indications, and mechanics of this gentle, effective modality.
