ABMP on the Road! From Germany to California

The relationships in the massage and bodywork professions are as intricate as the body’s own fascial network. The Fascia Research Society’s Rachelle Clauson shared the exciting news with us that Robert Schleip, PhD—one of the world’s leading experts in fascial research—is coming to the United States next month to teach for the first time in a couple years. Schleip is cofounder of the Fascia Research Society and the Fascia Research Congress. For ABMP's Leslie A. Young, PhD, one of the high points of the 2018 Fascia Research Congress in Berlin in November was reconnecting with and learning from Schleip.

Clauson helped host the Human Fascial Net Plastination Project at the congress and coordinated an ABMP sponsorship of this groundbreaking exhibit. She is excited to attend Schleip’s upcoming workshop and describes it as “wildly informative and practical.” The two-day course includes researchers and practitioners from the fields of bodywork, exercise, sports medicine, and movement.

To learn more about the Human Fascial Net Plastination Project, check out Clauson’s feature in the September/October 2018 issue of Massage & Bodywork.

There are a limited number of spots available in this maximum 80-person opportunity. For more information, visit www.ncepfitness.com/fascia.

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—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.
