At Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals (ABMP), we have certain phrases that inspire us. Our long-standing motto is expectmore. And more recently we’ve emphasized that “ABMP Works for You.” 

We don’t just say these words, we live them. Years ago, we outpaced our association and magazine competitors, thanks to our 80,000+ loyal members. But we continue to up our game, for you and our profession.

You are our motivation. We learn from your chat inquiries, emails, letters, and phone calls. You connect with us and inspire us through our continuing education courses, trade show booths, and webinars—bringing inspiration and innovation. Keep it up! 

Thanks to your feedback, we’re able to help you be you. We empower your practice through the ABMP Website Builder. Your online image helps educate clients and prospects about your special qualities. The customizable marketing materials in the Members section on are among ABMP’s most popular member benefits because you can craft them to meet your needs.
