We're Bringing You More

[Editor's Note]

At Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals (ABMP), we know it’s crucial for bodyworkers to stay engaged with the profession. It has been, and will continue to be, our mission to increase the benefits of all levels of ABMP membership. That’s why we’re delighted to tell you about a wonderful new improvement to our Certified program that brings enriched benefits to our members.

ABMP Certified members are those who have pledged to take at least 16 hours of continuing education every two years. The roots of ABMP’s top-tier membership go back to 1995; our goal was to give massage therapists and bodyworkers who wanted to continue their education and stay engaged in the field the opportunity to do so. And our mission hasn’t changed—rather, it’s expanded—culminating most recently in this exclusive mix of additional benefits and deeper discounts, including:

• Up to 25 percent off goods and services from Bodywork Mall, Bon Vital', Custom Craftworks, Earthlite, Oakworks, and 3B Scientific. 

• A quarterly music download from At Peace Media. 

• Top listing on Massagetherapy.com’s therapist locator service.

• eBooks with free CE hours (our first eBook is Cancer and the Human Connection: the Value of Oncology Massage and features articles from authors Tracy Walton and Gayle MacDonald, among others).

• ABMP Certified Member logo for members’ decals and certificates. 

Certified members get all this (and more) for just an additional $30 over our standard membership fee of $199—a price that hasn’t changed since ABMP started in 1987. To the thousands of bodyworkers who are already enjoying Certified membership, congratulations on taking the lead in your career!  

If you’re not a Certified member yet, don’t miss out on this opportunity. Professional members can upgrade at any time for $30—no need to wait until your next renewal.

Whatever modalities you practice, you’ll love this red-carpet level of membership. Check out Certified Central at www.abmp.com/go/certifiedcentral to see everything it has to offer. It’s where you want to be.
