As your client pool ages, it’s likely you will see more clients living with diabetes. Can the hands-on work you offer this aging group of clients make a difference in their quality of life? In this episode of The ABMP Podcast, Darren and Kristin are joined by Dawn Castiglione to discuss the importance of massage in addressing blood circulation problems in the elderly with age-related diabetes, specific considerations massage therapists should keep in mind when working with this population, and techniques that contribute to improving the client’s overall well-being.

Anatomy Trains is a global leader in online anatomy education and also provides in-classroom certification programs for structural integration in the US, Canada, Australia, Europe, Japan, and China, as well as fresh-tissue cadaver dissection labs and weekend courses. The work of Anatomy Trains originated with founder Tom Myers, who mapped the human body into 13 myofascial meridians in his original book, currently in its fourth edition and translated into 12 languages. The principles of Anatomy Trains are used by osteopaths, physical therapists, bodyworkers, massage therapists, personal trainers, yoga, Pilates, Gyrotonics, and other body-minded manual therapists and movement professionals. Anatomy Trains inspires these practitioners to work with holistic anatomy in treating system-wide patterns to provide improved client outcomes in terms of structure and function.
