This week (7/16/17-7/22/17) is EveryBody Deserves A Massage Week. You probably didn’t know that. Now you know. And if you did know that, I’m very impressed.
It’s an annual event hosted by ABMP since 1995. ABMP stands for Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals.
If you haven’t had a massage for a while it is a perfect week to get a massage. Or maybe try a different modality. I’ll put a link below for the list of modalities. There are so many out there that you probably didn’t even heard of.

If you’ve never had a massage before, this is a great time to try a massage. If you are a massage-lover and know of any massage-virgins, why not give them a gift of massage to introduce them to the wonderful benefits of massage. Or take them to a massage place with you to make it easier for them. I have massaged quite a few massage-virgins even in their 70s and they all enjoyed it.
And of course, you can massage your loved ones at home. You are welcome to download a free video ebook from the link below on how to massage your partner yourself easily.
If you are a fellow massage therapist let’s go get a massage because we need massage the most. As I get older I feel more and more how important it is to take care of ourselves first so we can give more good massages.
By the way, I’m a long time member of ABMP ever since I started my career. They provide massage insurance and as a member, you get discounts on all kinds of things and education. In fact, when I renewed my National Board Certification I needed 24 Continuing Education units and I was able to get all 24 CE units on ABMP’s website for FREE! So I am very grateful for that convenience. You can check out the benefits from the link below. I also have a special code you can use so contact me if you are interested.
