New Issue of Body Sense Magazine Available to Share

The new Winter 2020 issue of Body Sense, ABMP’s consumer publication promoting the value of massage and bodywork, is now available for ABMP members to share with their clients.

In this issue, your clients will read about why giving themselves the gift of self-care this holiday season is a worthy—and healthy—investment, and will learn about the restorative, invigorating effects of dry brushing and essential oils.

Features in this issue include:

“10 Reasons You Should Gift Yourself a Massage”

Sharing a gift of massage with others is a wonderful way to show you care. And while that is still an important message we hope you will share this season, even more important is reminding yourself that you’re worthy of that gift too . . . now, and all year long. Here are 10 reasons why you need to gift yourself a massage.

“Exfoliating Body Treatments”

Exfoliating body treatments are a great way to restore your skin, especially in dry, cold winter months. While some of these treatments can be performed at home, there is something wonderful about having these services performed by trained professionals, as you meditate in the sensation of the experience.

“Essential Oils for the Season”

The use of essential oils in a massage session can add a wonderful extra layer of therapeutic care to the work being done. Take a little of that experience home with you by dispensing essential oils in a diffuser. Check out some favorite winter blends to try.

“Hand Over Heart”

Your clients will enjoy this self-healing exercise, designed to open the heart and bring calm and peace.

ABMP’s Lymph Talk Series

These talks were recorded in conjunction with the October 25, 2022, free, online ABMP CE Summit on Lymph.
