BODY SENSE - MAGAZINE
Welcome to Body Sense magazine, ABMP's digital magazine for health-conscious consumers. Body Sense magazine is designed to educate consumers on the lasting benefits of frequent massage and bodywork and the value of good stress management.
Body Sense blends features on a variety of massage therapy modalities with tips for healthy living. Readers emerge with a better understanding of bodywork, inspired to book another session. The Body Sense philosophy considers massage therapy an integral facet of a healthy lifestyle, not just an indulgence.
In this issue, discover ways you can enhance your massage experience. From preparing your body pre-session, to quieting your mind during the session, to getting some extra sleep post-session, these tips will help you get the most out of your session and the therapeutic work you’re receiving. This issue also offers some simple stretches to strengthen your neck muscles, gives a personal account of one client’s return to massage for the first time since the pandemic began (and the importance it held for him), and also offers a look at shifting trends in men’s wellness habits.
In our new spring issue, your clients can read: 5 Ayurvedic Ways to Improve Balance in Your Body and Mind, How Massage Can Address the Impacts of Upper Back Pain, and I’ve Just Been Vaccinated. Can I Schedule a Massage?
This issue has great information about self-care tools and stretches to use to combat the work-from-home slump, ways to practice forgiveness for yourself and others, and a rundown of how your next massage or bodywork appointment might look different. We’ve also included a refreshing summer salad recipe to help boost your immune system.
This issue talks about the benefits of massage for mental and emotional well-being, something especially relevant to us all right now. There also are shoulder movements to help you stay away from the bad posture that takes over with too much computer work, information about why side-lying is a great position for us to consider at your next session, advice from our experts on what your skin might be missing (even if you’ve been makeup-free lately), and new research showing foot massage helps decrease the pain of patients hospitalized in the ICU.
