We’ve Got Your 2018 Resolutions Covered

Happy New Year!

As we all struggle to make the mental switch from 2017 to 2018 in our correspondences and check ledgers, it’s the perfect time to offer our assistance with those New Year’s resolutions you’re working on. Here are a few of our favorite articles and resources for helping you reach your 2018 goals.

Resolution #1: I will grow my business in 2018.
Start with this great article from industry leader Eric Brown: “Your Best Year Ever.” While originally written in 2013, this marketing road map gives excellent, and timeless, month-by-month advice on how to really move the needle on your business success.

Resolution #2: I will take better care of myself in 2018.
In addition to content found in our Savvy Self-Care column, which runs in each issue of Massage & Bodywork magazine, we devoted an entire issue of the magazine to therapist self-care in 2017. Read our award-winning May/June 2017 issue to remind yourself why self-care matters so much to those who help others.

Resolution #3: I will invest in continuing education in 2018.
You need look no further than ABMP’s Online Education Center for an array of webinars, ebooks, and other resources to expand your knowledge base.

ABMP’s Lymph Talk Series

Lymph Talk is a series of conversations ABMP Director of Professional Education Kristin Coverly had with practitioners who specialize in the manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) modality. These talks were recorded in conjunction with the October 25, 2022, free, online ABMP CE Summit on Lymph. Kristin says, “My hope is that these conversations increase the awareness of MLD and demonstrate how effective it can be with different populations so massage therapists and bodyworkers are inspired to learn more about this gentle, yet powerful modality!”
