Body-Mind: Topic 1, Proprioception and the Body Sense

Using the latest research in the fields of connective tissue, neuroscience, pain management, and somatics, we'll examine simple but powerfully tangible ways to include body-mind awareness in a massage therapy or bodywork context. This information is relevant to those who work with chronic pain, emotional well-being, stress, and any other issues with a body-mind dimension.

Body-Mind: Topic 2, Understanding the Body-Mind Effects of Stress

Learn about the ways hands-on work helps us deal with the physical and emotional effects of stress, overwhelm, and over-busyness. This information is relevant to all types of stress-from mild, everyday hectic states to more severe trauma, and even PTSD.

Body-Mind: Topic 3, Hope, Despair, and Intractable Symptoms: Body-Mind Considerations

As hands-on practitioners, we usually get amazing results with our work. Nevertheless, there are symptoms that are outside our scope, or simply don't seem to change. How can our work be helpful, even when our clients' symptoms don't go away? How can we support clients finding their own meaning and their own way through their struggles? What can we offer to clients who are dealing with chronic pain, complex or serious diagnoses, or apparently "intractable" issues?

Body-Mind: Topic 4, Emotions: Are They Contagious? Boundaries, Empathy, and Body-Mind

Why do we sometimes feel our clients' emotions as our own (and why do they feel ours)? Is this harmful, or potentially helpful? What do brain science, shamanism, and bodywork folklore have to say about empathy, emotions, and boundaries? How can we best take care of ourselves, and serve our clients?

Body-Mind: Topic 5, Chronic Pain: Body-Mind Considerations for Hands-On Work

A radical revision of conventional ideas about pain is currently underway. Innovative researchers are suggesting that pain has even more to do with context, expectations, and other "mental" factors than previously thought. Of course, philosophers, mystics, and yogis have said this for years. So, is pain all in the head? And, even more to the point, what can manual therapy practitioners learn and do to help our clients with ongoing pain?

Body-Mind: Topic 6, Trauma: Body-Mind Considerations for Hands-on Work

Our understanding of the mechanisms and effects of trauma have increased tremendously in the last 20 years. What do hands-on therapists need to know about the body and brain's response to trauma? From mild everyday overwhelm, to physical and psychological trauma, to full-on PTSD, we'll examine ways we can make sure our work is helpful to those who have experienced some kind of trauma or traumatic event.

Comments

This series was so much fun to put together, and I still get a lot of emails about it. So many of us are interested on how to include both the body and the mind in our work, while staying within scope, responding to what our client's want, etc. I have hopes that we'll be able to add to the series too, and would love your topic requests and feedback!

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—MLD: Basic Techniques for the Neck and Face

Gain an understanding of manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) movements and the location of important lymphatic structures as you watch Nicola McGill’s dynamic demonstration of three MLD techniques and MLD sequences for the neck and face. Learn about this important modality that, when provided effectively, can support and enhance the movement of lymph fluid through the lymphatic vessels and eventually back to the cardiovascular system.

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.
