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.

“I am so glad I found ABMP, now my MT home! All that I have come to know in my passion for MT care is right here. Little did I know that the therapists I have followed forever are also part of ABMP!” —Mary
