DISCOVER All THE REASONS TO LOVE YOUR MEMBERSHIP

Professional Liability Insurance You Can Trust

In an accident you call us first, not an insurance company—we don't leave you to face a difficult situation alone. With ABMP you have individual liability insurance coverage, so all policy limits are yours and not subject to a master policy limit. There's no extra charge for Additional Insured Endorsements, and you can even add optional Business Personal Property insurance to protect your equipment.

Unlimited FREE CE, No Strings Attached

Want to keep your skills sharp and learn new techniques? The ABMP Education Center gives members free CE for 200+ on-demand webinars from top presenters like Ruth Werner, Ben Benjamin, and Erik Dalton. Plus, ABMP Certified members get even more, with an additional 400+ free CE hours.

Expert Assistance at Your Fingertips

Our members-only, quick-reference apps are fun to use and full of information you can use in your practice. ABMP Five-Minute Muscles delivers muscle-specific palpation and technique videos, plus actions, origins, and insertions, for the muscles most commonly addressed by bodyworkers. And ABMP Pocket Pathology, created in conjunction with Ruth Werner, provides quick info to help you make treatment decisions for your clients.

Big Savings = Happy Members

Every dollar counts, which is why our discounts save you money on massage tables, chairs, and lotions for your practice, shoes and healthy food for your family, and other everyday expenses. Practicing self-care with a vacation, or shopping for cell phone service? You'll save there too.

We Work for You

We mean it when we say that we go above and beyond liability insurance. Our award-winning Massage & Bodywork magazine, delivered six times a year, keeps you informed and inspired. And our expectmore customer service and dedicated legislative advocacy put you first so that when you need to, you can call in and get help from a real, human person.

ABMP’s Lymph Talk Series

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!”

2022 ABMP CE Summit Course—Introduction to Manual Lymphatic Drainage

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.
