A man tilts his head backward to look at the evening sky.

The newest Massage & Bodywork magazine CE course, “2024, Issue 1: Massage & Bodywork Magazine January–February 2024,” is now available in the ABMP Education Center to read and earn 2.5 CE hours.

Course Description

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, Massage & Bodywork 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 ties directly 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, we explore the suboccipitals and eight sequenced techniques designed to release clients’ head pain and tension. Also in this issue is an in-depth look at some best practices for palpating the anterior hip, a profile on movement expert Judith Aston, a detailed look at clients with renal failure and how massage can help them, the value of massage in rehabilitating ankle sprains, using AI in your business, and ways to avoid being a “careless” therapist.

The January–February 2024 issue of Massage & Bodywork features contributions from various authors, including Laura Allen, Jeffrey Bramhall, Cal Cates, Rachelle Clauson, Erik Dalton, Allison Denney, Allissa Haines, Lance Hostetter, Whitney Lowe, Til Luchau, Joe Muscolino, Douglas Nelson, Karrie Osborn, Heath and Nicole Reed, Nicole Trombley, Ruth Werner, Cindy Williams, and Davonna Willis.
