The Most Popular Entries in ABMP Five-Minute Muscles

ABMP Five-Minute Muscles is an exciting members-only app that lets massage therapists and bodyworkers quickly and easily refresh muscle knowledge wherever and whenever with just a few clicks.

Covering the 83 muscles most often addressed by professional massage therapists over seven main muscle regions, each entry features muscle-specific technique and palpation videos from master massage therapist Clint Chandler, plus actions, origins, and insertions for each muscle.
