20 m a s s a g e & b o d y w o r k n o v e m b e r / d e c e m b e r 2 0 1 5 TIPS FOR TODAY MASSAGE SUPPLIES Many of your member discounts apply to things you're likely already buying, so there's no need to do anything other than use your ABMP discount to get great deals on items like massage oils and lotions, tables and linens, and online booking software. In fact, if you're planning for a large purchase like a massage table, your ABMP membership could even pay for itself. Take the Proluxe Flat Top electric lift table from Oakworks, for example. When you apply your 15-percent ABMP discount to the $1,570 retail price, you save $235.50—more than the price of a Professional membership! If you're a Certifi ed member, the savings are even greater: $392 with a 25-percent discount. CONTINUING EDUCATION Even if you're not in the market for a new table, there are lots of ways to make the most of your ABMP membership. As an MT, you might be required to take a certain number of continuing education classes in order to renew your license. ABMP makes it convenient for you to learn new techniques, modalities, and industry trends with more than 130 on-demand webinars, many with optional CE hours. Simply watch a webinar on your own time, for free, and, if you like, take the optional quiz for $12 to earn your hours. PRACTICE MANAGEMENT Offering an online scheduling portal where clients can check for openings and book their own appointments is becoming increasingly important for therapists who want to keep their appointment book full. ABMP has partnered with MassageBook to offer members a free account with enhanced features that you'd normally have to pay for. Your free MassageBook account includes essential practice management features like online scheduling with Facebook integration, electronic SOAP notes, text alerts and reminders, and more. You even get a discount on additional premium features. Make the Most of Your Membership You read Massage & Bodywork magazine—thank you!— and you enjoy peace of mind from ABMP's professional liability insurance, but do you know about the other fantastic money-saving benefi ts that are yours as an ABMP member? Here are just a few at your fi ngertips. By Brandon Twyford
