Fibromyalgia: The Invisible Disease

This webinar was featured during the 2018 ABMP CE Summit: Common Client Conditions. Fibromyalgia syndrome is the second-most commonly diagnosed musculoskeletal disorder in the United States—only osteoarthritis is diagnosed more often. Yet, little is well understood about this common condition—including that it turns out NOT to be a musculoskeletal disorder. This course will examine current thinking about the etiology of fibromyalgia and implications for the safe and effective practice of massage therapy for our clients who live with this challenging condition.

Taking the Danger out of Endangerment Sites

An endangerment site doesn’t necessarily mean “don’t touch,” but it does mean “touch with special care and knowledge.” Unfortunately, although massage is generally safe, medical and legal records show many cases where clients have been injured, often by well-meaning, but under-educated massage therapists. We can minimize that risk by knowing where certain tissues are most vulnerable to damage, and how to accommodate our touch to be safe in those areas. Join award-winning educator Ruth Werner for a deep dive into this topic as she draws on her client’s body to illustrate the boundaries and structures of endangerment sites in eight areas of the body. Your clients will thank you! Learn More

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.
