The newest Massage & Bodywork magazine CE course, “2024, Issue 3: Massage & Bodywork Magazine May/June 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, use Anatomy Trains principles to uncover the body’s three rotational muscle systems, explore what MTs can do to make their massage great, and dive into how to improve the ambience of a mobile massage experience. Also in this issue: adding guided visualization practices into your massage sessions, a detailed look at friction massage, how to walk the fine line between therapist and friend, working with radial tunnel syndrome, finding ways to help your clients combat the “sitting epidemic,” and the value of oscillation as part of your practitioner’s toolbox.

The May-June 2024 issue of Massage & Bodywork magazine features contributions from various authors, including Laura Allen, Cal Cates, Rachelle Clauson, Erik Dalton, Allison Denney, Allissa Haines, Lance Hostetter, Erik and Faye Krippner, Whitney Lowe, David Lobenstine, Til Luchau, Thomas Myers, Douglas Nelson, Heath and Nicole Reed, Michelle Roos, Nicole Trombley, Ruth Werner, and Cindy Williams.
