Massage & Bodywork January/February 2024 CE.

The newest Massage & Bodywork magazine CE course “2023, Issue 6: Massage & Bodywork Magazine November-December 2023” is now available in the ABMP Education Center to read and earn 3 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, 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 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 diabetes, its complications, and its implications for massage therapy, as well as some hands-on protocols for working with elderly clients living with diabetes. Also in this issue is a self-care article on preserving your thumbs, a look at one therapist’s journey from war to wellness, information on the fifth quad muscle, treating rotator cuff disorders, addressing back pain, the anatomy of scar tissue, and reducing fat bias in the treatment room.

The November-December 2023 issue of Massage & Bodywork magazine features contributions from various authors including Laura Allen, Dawn Castiglione, Cal Cates, Rachelle Clauson, Erik Dalton, Allison Denney, Allissa Haines, Lance Hostetter, David Lesondak, Lynette Lombardo, Whitney Lowe, Douglas Nelson, Karrie Osborn, Heath and Nicole Reed, Nicole Trombley, Ruth Werner, and Cindy Williams.
