October is Education Month with ABMP

Every week for the month of October we’ll be adding new education opportunities with FREE CE to the ABMP Education Center!
 
This week, ABMP members have access to self-care continuing education webinars and article bundles that will help you reduce injury and burnout while prolonging your career. The following courses are now available in the ABMP Education Center at www.abmp.com/ce:
 
Mentally Healthy: Strategies for Massage Therapist Self-Care
In this webinar with psychotherapist Analisa Macias, we’ll discuss the characteristics of good mental health and share strategies massage therapists can use to handle their emotions effectively, feel more positive and energetic, boost mood, build resilience, and manage the stresses of a massage practice.
 
The Art and Science of a Good Night's Sleep
You need the best quality sleep to be your best quality self. This one-hour webinar explores healthy sleep, insomnia, good sleep hygiene, and complementary health care that can improve the quality and duration of sleep.
 
The Cure for Work Exhaustion
The practice of massage or bodywork requires a significant amount of mental, emotional, and physical energy. We bring our best selves to our clients—and it can be exhausting. This session is about learning from fatigue and using its teachings to examine our lives, ourselves, and what it means to bring heart to every massage without depleting our own energy levels.
 
Touch Tools with Erik Dalton
Touch Tools are 14 unique techniques developed by master practitioner Erik Dalton that teach bodywork practitioners effective use of body weight and correct structural alignment. The aim of this one-hour self-care webinar is to show practitioners how to take care of themselves while building a rich toolbox of body-saving methods clients love.
 
Massage & Bodywork Magazine Article Bundle: "Self-Care Through Body Mechanics"
During a session, therapists use a wide variety of movements and postures: standing, sitting, bending, reaching, and lifting. They also use a wide variety of hand and wrist positions. When performing these movements and postures from a properly supported position, and utilizing balanced breathing techniques, you have less risk of injury and can conserve body energy. This makes massage easier on you! These Massage & Bodywork self-care articles look at good body mechanics in specific body positions.
 
Massage & Bodywork Magazine Article Bundle: "Self-Care for the Mind"
When massage therapists contemplate self-care, they often focus on the physical body. But how we think, and the way we feel and act based on those thoughts can play a big role in stress and burnout. In this series of articles, Massage & Bodywork magazine authors explore issues of self-care for the mind. These practices lead to resilience, motivation, and feelings of gratitude for our clients.
 
Massage & Bodywork Magazine Article Bundle: "Self-Care for the Spirit"
Any massage therapist will tell you that practicing bodywork takes spirit—a lot of it! Burnout is a state of physical, emotional, and spiritual depletion that manifests as a loss of motivation, feelings of cynicism, digestive issues, fatigue, a compromised immune system, and even depression. A key to protecting your bodywork practice is taking good care of your spirit. This series of Massage & Bodywork articles gives you a number of strategies to help bring the heart back to your work.
