Introducing ABMP Pocket Pathology—New Member Benefit

ABMP Pocket Pathology, a new quick-reference app for massage therapists and bodyworkers, is now exclusively available as part of professional ABMP memberships. ABMP members can access the new resource at www.abmp.com/members/pocket-pathology. Not an ABMP member? Join today at www.abmp.com/join!

Developed in partnership with Ruth Werner, author of A Massage Therapist’s Guide to Pathology, and Books of Discovery, ABMP Pocket Pathology is a quick-reference program that puts key information for nearly 200 common pathologies at your fingertips. 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.

Have more time and want a deeper dive into information about the pathology you’re seeking? Check out the “Research and Resources” section to read articles, watch webinars, or investigate the latest research on the subject.

It's Included with ABMP Membership

Building on the framework of ABMP Five-Minute Muscles and incorporating feedback from members, ABMP Pocket Pathology is yet another reason that an ABMP membership is the best value in the profession. Available at no additional charge at www.abmp.com/members/pocket-pathology, members can save the program to the home screen of their phones by following the instructions at www.abmp.com/members/pocket-pathology/add-to-home-screen.

First 5-Minute Muscles, a huge CE library, and now a Pathology app...?!  You continue to amaze me and make me a better therapist.  This is just what I needed.  Thank you so much!  You really get me ;-)  Keep up the great work.

Thank you so much, Lisa! We really appreciate your feedback. I have turned your quote into an image and would like to post it on social media. I attributed you as "Lisa, a happy ABMP member." Please let me know if you have any questions or objections. Thanks in advance! —Tara, ABMP marketing & social media manager
