The newest Massage & Bodywork magazine CE course “2023, Issue 5: Massage & Bodywork Magazine September-October 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, M&B 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 nerve mobilization methods that can be incorporated with massage and other manual therapies, as well as an in-depth look at how vision and upper-body tensions are linked. Other topics include creating connection between the psoas and the quadratus lumborum, navigating rotator cuff disorders, favorite manual therapy techniques, the rectus sheath, Parkinson’s disease and the implications for massage, making your practice more user-friendly, and facial cupping for self-care.

The September-October 2023 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, David Lesondak, Whitney Lowe, Til Luchau, Dr. Joe Muscolino, Douglas Nelson, Heath and Nicole Reed, Marybetts Sinclair, Nicole Trombley, Ruth Werner, 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 multi-course packages.
