Get More with ABMP Membership!

ABMP goes above and beyond to help our members succeed, bringing you the insurance you need, the free CE you want, and the personalized benefits and service you deserve.

Members expectmore, and get more, because ABMP membership is specifically tailored to the needs of massage therapists and bodyworkers. Our goal is to pack as much value into a membership as possible, and whether it’s free CE, 50+ money-saving discounts, or practical hands-on tools like ABMP Five-Minute Muscles, our benefits are designed for you to use right now to help your practice.

“I am continually impressed to the hilt with the services and benefits ABMP provides its members, thereby raising the bar (and increasing public awareness of the importance of bodywork) for our entire profession in the process. Thank you, ABMP staff and members.”
—Marlys, ABMP member 

The fundamental benefit of ABMP membership is providing professional liability insurance you can trust. 

ABMP members have individual coverage, so all policy limits are yours and not subject to a master policy limit like AMTA. In an accident you call us first, not an insurance company—we don't leave you to face a difficult situation alone. There's no upcharge for Additional Insured Endorsements, and you can even add optional Business Personal Property insurance to protect your equipment. Simply put, you can trust that you're taken care of with ABMP. If you’re interested in learning more about the “why” behind the coverage included with ABMP insurance, read this message from ABMP president Les Sweeney.

“I recently switched from AMTA and WOW. Love it. Not a thing I thought I would ever say about my insurance or professional organization. I’m so glad that I switched!”
—Nicole, ABMP member
