Recap of the 2020 ABMP CE Summit

Connection. Education. Inspiration.

Last year we connected virtually with leaders in the profession to learn tools to help navigate through a unique time. All of the webinars were added to the ABMP Education Center after the event for on-demand viewing and CE.

“This Summit has not only armed me with technical tools and knowledge, inspired me with new ideas, and given me a sense of community, but also relieved my worry about ‘losing my touch’ and anxiety about how I will best be of service to individuals, especially those with complex issues.” —ABMP CE Summit 2020 attendee

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!”

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.
