Who We Are

Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals (ABMP) is a national membership association that goes above and beyond great liability insurance to make it easier for massage and bodywork practitioners and students to succeed. Founded in 1987, ABMP has distinguished itself in the massage community for two main reasons:

  1. ABMP's comprehensive program of massage liability and business property insurance sets the standard for the profession. Specifically tailored to meet the needs of massage therapists and bodyworkers, the policy included in membership offers "occurrence form" coverage; professional, general, and product liability coverage with the highest limits available; no additional charge for Additional Insured Endorsements; and no "shared member" aggregate, like some other associations.
  2. Our business philosophy is summed up by our credo: expect more. ABMP members receive the most responsive, knowledgeable service and a comprehensive package of member benefits that includes free CE hours, dozens of member discounts, a free business website, the award-winning Massage & Bodywork magazine, dedicated legislative advocacy, and more.

ABMP has been named a top place to work for the 5th year in a row! 2019-2023 and counting!
