New CE Course: Massage & Bodywork Magazine January-February 2023

CE Course Massage & Bodywork magazine 2023, no. 1

The newest Massage & Bodywork magazine CE course “2023, Issue 1: Massage & Bodywork Magazine January-February 2023” is now available in the ABMP Education Center to read and earn 3 CE hours. 

Massage & Bodywork magazine is a thought leader in the field of massage therapy and is distributed broadly—both directly to members of Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals, and to the entire field through its free digital edition. With each issue, M&B readers are exposed to a variety of pertinent and timely information affecting not only their practice, but the profession as a whole. From specific hands-on techniques, to recent research on touch therapies, to practice- and business-building ideas, Massage & Bodywork offers readers vetted, informed material that directly ties back to a practitioner’s hands-on work. The ABMP Massage & Bodywork magazine CE courses allow learners to earn CE credit by reading the issue and passing an online quiz.

In this issue and CE course, explore the challenges and rewards of working with clients who have Alzheimer’s disease or dementia; learn which essential oils are appropriate for an elderly clientele; consider all the ways MTs can use their palms during session work with clients; and learn all the reasons why getting a doctor’s note for the work you do is not the safety net you think it is. This issue also includes information on reducing potential client harm by improving your communication skills, becoming a better “pain detective,” learning how to pay yourself first, working with idiopathic mast cell activation, understanding the importance of skin ligaments, and exploring plantar foot pain.

The January-February 2023 issue of M&B magazine features contributions from various authors, including Laura Allen, Cal Cates, Rachelle Clauson, Erik Dalton, Allison Denney, Allissa Haines, David Lesondak, Whitney Lowe, Til Luchau, Joe Muscolino, Douglas Nelson, Karrie Osborn, Heath and Nicole Reed, Michael Reynolds, Nicole Trombley, Ruth Werner, Anne Williams, and Cindy Williams.

The ABMP Education Center, where ABMP members earn free CE, is home to 750+ online massage and bodywork CE hours. These on-demand courses are available for nonmembers to purchase as individual courses or in discounted multicourse packages.
