ABMP Pocket Pathology lets you go into your sessions armed with the knowledge necessary to make the best treatment decisions for your clients, and it’s easy to use, whether you’re accessing it from your phone or laptop.
Whether you’re in a private practice, small clinic, day spa, or massage franchise, this web-based app from ABMP can give you the information you need to make the most appropriate treatment decisions for your clients who live with health challenges.
It's Easy to Use
Did your client’s health intake interview just reveal she’s been diagnosed with diabetes and now you need a speedy review on the condition? Go to your ABMP Pocket Pathology app and type in “diabetes” to get the primary information you need to make best-practice decisions about whether your touch will be beneficial to this client right now.
Quick, bullet-pointed information lets you assess how to adapt your work to accommodate clients and their various conditions. No more guessing in the treatment room. This resource gives you the confidence you need to make best-practice decisions for every client.
