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.

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!”
